Stayed at Holiday Inn Exp. and asked for a good Mexican rest. They said go next door. It was exceptionally good. Had the #3--enchilada,chile relleno, beef taco with RED sauce (spicy) came with rice and beans. Excellent. Beans good too.Wife had chicken tacos and like them too. Negro Modelo on draft.

Convenient location, friendly staff, reasonable prices. Authentic New Mexican food. American food is also served. Good selection of beers at reasonable prices. They also have wine margaritas. A favorite spot for locals.

I like this place. Its solid NM Mexican food, and you cant go wrong be eating here. Atmosphere could be nicer, but it doesnt bother me, so I continue to go when I can. Food is great, prices are fair.

Last week I ordered - for the first and last time - an order from Chilitos. After waiting an hour I called back to find out what happened to my order. Person that answered said the person delivering said I was not at the hotel and was "too busy to come down to pick up order at front desk." A... More

I have tried the gordita Plate with rice and beans at different restaurants, usually the gorditas fall apart and have to scoop the remains sith a fork. Gorditas at chilitos were nice and stout and held together. Best Gorditas I've had so far. Service was excellent.

Not the best I've had but definitely up there. I really liked the way the fajitas were served and there was a very enjoyable and unique spice blend on it. I woukd definitely go again.

An excellent place for breakfast. A large restaurant, quick and efficient service and a "seniors" menu for those of us who are quantitiy challenged. We usually get the Huevos Rancheros (Chrismas). Both of their sauces are freshly made and excellent. The heat of the green varies from day to day. This review is about the Valley location. We have also... More

It is hard to please a big group, but Chilitos succeeded in doing so last night! Cheeseburgers with green chilis were devoured. The patty seemed freshly made (which I prefer over a perfect round patty from the freezer...), enchiladas the best my uncle has ever had he said! The beef flautas, gorditas, chile rellenos, steak tampiqueno, everything was just tasty.... More

based on spot on the "FOOD" signage on I-10, we stopped in hoping for authentic Mexican food and were well pleased with Chilitos. Earnest staff, friendly laid back atmosphere, plenty of parking, etc, all put us on flight path for a great road meal.

I had not been to chili tons in several years but decided to try it again. Went for lunch and I ordered the chicken salad and my husband ordered the taco salad. The "meat" in the taco salad is clearly not real ground beef. It is some sort of cheap institutional "meat" product. it was vile and tasteless with an... More
