Went here for lunch over a short business meeting. No complaints about this place. If it wasn't on the other side of town for me I would definitely be a regular. The food was great and so was the service.

We eat at Chile Rojo often because the food is very good. It is also very reasonably priced. Our family of three can usually eat for less than $25 (but we never order alcohol which would increase our cost). The servers are usually very friendly and the management seems to want to make sure everyone's visit is a good one.... More

Went here while staying at hotel across the street for business. Quick service, good food and very inexpensive. I got a delicious almost 3 pound burrito (chile rojo burrito) for about $9 and was completely stuffed. It was really good. Cheap beer too.

I went with my sister and her husband, who is generally a picky eater. The portions were large and the food was good. The place was packed but we didn't have to wait. It had a great atmosphere. The waitress forgot to bring us our check but other than that it was a good experience.

Just finishing a delicious meal Chile Rojo. Excellent food, very reasonable prices, pleasant employees, nice dining room and especially like that they have a patio as it is a lovely evening for being outdoors. I messed up my food before I remembered to take a photo, but shared anyway as TripAdvisor needs more photos from here:) Was absolutely delicious!

Ben and Mrs Too were leery of an expected rainstorm one night in Mt Airy. We felt we should change our planned dinner venue in favor of the well regarded Mexican restaurant right across the parking lot from our hotel. Actually, we reflected, it would be a task to remember the last time we had enjoyed real Mexican food, as... More
