Chelas was a Mexican fast food restaurant, but the decor, staff, and cleanliness were impressive. My lunch included burgers, fries, water bottle of Coke, steak burrito, etc. The bill was too steep for my taste, which I found to be overly expensive at $15. However, the overall experience was satisfactory considering the cost was reasonable.
Although there are many Mexican restaurants in South Orange County, Chelas is a must-visit place. The burritos are huge and the rib eye tacos were my favorite!
Despite the busyness of our first visit to this spot, tacos were definately delicious! Crispy chicken tacas with rice and beans, steak crispy Taco Bellagio perfectly executed! I'm hooked! The green salsa looks so tasty! It'll be hard to resist! This tacto sounds amazing!
Although the place was crowded, it still had a great time. I ordered taco Tuesday and appreciated the delicious aroma. We went for fried chicken and carnitas at the counter, which were very tasty and hot.
The food and atmosphere was excellent, including the chili Verde burrito. The beans and rice were a hit too. Clean and tidy environment was also praised.
The "fast food" experience I've had is both incredibly satisfying and highly comfortable, with the food being on par with that of slow-food joints. It's also very different from slow restaurants.
We were thrilled to find this California Mexican food spot. The restaurant, located about halfway between LA and SD, is an excellent choice for lunch with a wide variety of dishes including breakfast burritos, crunchy or soft taco sandwiches, MVP (Mexican My Horseshoe) burros, salads from their main courses, carne asada fries, fish tacOs like pico de gallo, enchiladas, and rib eye options. Our table was divided into groups of 8 individuals and we all settled there.
This Mexican food spot in the Talega and north San Clemente areas is a must-visit for anyone planning supper. The service is friendly and attentive, plus there are complimentary tortilla chips and salsa on every meal. It's surprisingly good value for money.
Since the restaurant opened, I've been wanting to go there for some time but haven't had the chance. Today, while visiting the makers market on Avenue, my curiosity was piqued by the street tacos and salsa available. We ordered the steak and chicken with the mild salsa and it was fantastic!
This review is intended to introduce you, as San Diego residents are familiar with the fantastic Mexican food available in their area. Having moved to Orange County 8 years ago, I quickly realized that good quality Mexican cuisine was not available. First, chef Chris Kitchen served up mouth-watering street tacos and then recommended Southern California favorites.
