A hidden gem!!

I’m so glad others have discovered and reviewed this hidden gem. This place deserves to be jam-packed, and I am disheartened when I find it so uncrowded most of the time.
Chavas Tacos does NOT look impressive from the outside, but its food is the best Mexican I’ve had in the city – yes, including fancy sit-down joints. The ingredients are fresh, the food is prepared fresh while you wait…the results are consistently delicious.
Oh, and it’s ridiculously cheap.
Try the barbacoa – it’s not spicy-hot, but very tender and extremely flavorful. Their chicken meat (for tacos and burritos) is tender, juicy, and lightly seasoned. Their pico de gallo is made fresh and they always give me a few extra containers to take home with me. Their breakfast burritos are very good also.
The staff are friendly and courteous.
Do yourself a favor and next time you want Mexican, skip the chains, and treat yourself to Chavas’ amazing food!!

Barbacoa

The barbacoa isn’t spicy-hot, but very tender and extremely flavorful. Try the barbacoa tacos with just cilantro, cheese, and onions. You’ll be over the moon.

Best Kept Secret

Located next to the busiest Wing Stop restaurant in the country, Chavez Tacos #2 isn’t busy enough. Never had a bad meal and in fact its one of the first places I go to when I’m back in town. I really can’t say enough about this place. Don’t judge it from the outside, TRY THE FOOD!

Taco Mania. Their tacos are like heroin. You will steal from family members, betray close friends, and even kill to get your fix. Eat at your own risk!

Tasty Tacos 2

Just like the big brother Chavas in the city, this Chavas keeps it real with savory and tender carne asada tacos that will blow you away. Their salsas are also something to cheer for. Let's just say I'm glad they opened a suburban…
