The food here was great and seemed to be a favorite among locals. There were a lot of families enjoying the good food and atmosphere. Quite casual and relaxing evening.

I've been coming here for years. I've tried the other Mexican places around Peoria, but this still has the best chimicunha around. Get the lunch special #11. The Best! A local favorite.

Don't let the strip mall fool you. Great place to eat! Prices are good and you won't leave hungry. I would return on my next trip to this area.

This is a charming little Mexican restaurant! The food and the friendly service was outstanding! Their margaritas are the best in the area - They are not the usual artificial lime green and overly sour taste you get other Mexican restaurants. Nice bar area as...More
