My wife, kids and I went there this morning and the whole place was a big mess. It was only 11 am and the place was already a wreck, yes they had several customers, but there were a few empty tables, which hadn't been cleaned off. It seemed like no one was in a hurry to clean the tables and pick up the dirty plates etc. No one ever greeted us and we didn't know if we were supposed to wait to be seated or seat ourselves. So we ended up seating ourselves at one of the dirty tables and waited and waited and no one ever bothered coming to attend to us. There was a sign at the counter that said to order there, however some people were given menus, but we were just ignored. Finally my wife walked up to the counter to order the famous Chinto's caldo de rez(mexican beef stew), which is why we even went there in the first place, because all the locals seem to brag about it, and my wife was told that they weren't making any caldo de rez today. All this for nothing! This place is really small and pretty crowed and confusing. Service is terrible and unless the waitresses feel you're important they won't go out of their way to come to you. We ended up walking out and no one even noticed. We had our lunch at The Hacienda Restaurant in downtown Del Rio, which is my favorite Mexican buffet in town and ate all the caldo de rez I wanted in the buffet for under 8 bucks. Chinto's is overated and a mess! Never going back!!!
