Good food, the taste of homemade original Mexican and the ambience gives you the illusion of being in Mexico enjoying a beer and eating tacos! Best dishes: guacamole and totopos of course! Shrimp quesadillas, flautas de pollo, tacos de pescado, tacos de carnitas! We've had many other dishes but i think these are the top 5! Recommend it 100%

I Love the food here, BUT year after year the WASP problem goes unacknowledged by management. I will unfortunately not be giving one of my favorite places another chance. The service was lovely as always, but even the servers were agreeing how ridiculous the wasp problem is. We also noticed EVRRY other table on the patio complaining. We were planning... More

Hello, We apologize for your experience last time with those pesky Wasps. We did put up wasp traps but they obviously don't seem to be doing the trick so well. We contacted a pest control company yesterday when we were notified of this and they are onsite today to investigate if there is a nest nearby and will work with... More

Great Classic Margarita along with freshly made Taco's gives a perfect blend of dinner at one of the most posh area's of Calgary. Located just over the happening 17th Ave, provides nice blend of Mexican food with some great cocktails. The meat or fish Taco's are great to have with the usual sauce. The service is relatively poor. It was... More

This is a very good restaurant that serves authentic Mexican food. The restaurant is small but the service and food will make you want to come back. The prices are very reasonable and we all enjoyed our meals.

My nephew visited us at our hotel and recommended Los Chilitos for a take out dinner. It was within walking distance of our hotel and the meals were good. A fair price for what we received. We would definitely order from them again!

The restaurant had great atmosphere with good service and the food was authentic and excellent. The locations is central and a good location to meet for those scattered around the city. The parking is on street, however we had no issue finding a spot. Great selection of Tequilas, the fish tacos were outstanding.

Thank Collin A
