Breakfast favorites such as Huevos con Chorizo are also available all day long. Desserts include flan, bread pudding, churros and banana flautas. Housemade horchata and the fire roasted salsa with chips are always in high demand. The bar offering includes Mexican beer, wine, sangria, tequila and margaritas. Daily drink specials and weekday lunch specials are also available. Established in 2005. Los Chaparros, means "The Shorties" and refers to both co-owners, Mario (5' 4") & Lisa (4' 9") being short in stature. It is a very common practice in Mexico to give someone a nickname based on their physical characteristics as a sign of affection toward them. "The Shorties" embraced their nickname, and "Los Chaparros" was born. Mario is native to Mexico City and Lisa was born and raised in California. They were inspired to share their love of cooking (and eating) Mexican food and decided to open this restaurant. Los Chaparros has a wide array of items for you to choose from, border favorites to traditional - something for everyone. Buen provecho!

“good food Great staff”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

the menue has a lot of options. the food is good and you can't ask for better service. parking is limited. plan on making a few laps around the block to find parking. I have never had to wait for a table. the Deigo Revera prints are nice.

“Good food; poor service”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

The food is better than most you'll find on Oahu. The parking is always an issue as the tiny lot holds 5 cars. Hope that it is not busy when you arrive. The wait staff, although friendly, seemingly lacks motivation to ensure your dining experience is one that will bring you back.

“Best Mexican I've Found on Oahu”
Reviewed 21 January 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I've been here twice now, having only recently learned of the place. My first experience was very good, and I returned a short time later. The food is very good and rather authentic, and the margaritas are delicious (though I do pay for fancier tequila). The staff here is extremely friendly, but not in an obnoxious way. The parking situation is, indeed, quite bad. I was actually lucky for both of my visits and was able to find street parking very close to the restaurant. This is now my go-to Mexican place.
