We stopped in here randomly today. The staff was so nice and the food was absolutely delicious. They were very generous with the guacamole. Sour cream and mild, medium and hot salsa are all free. The place itself was cheery and adorable. So glad we...More

Chelas’ has authentic south of the border food. I am partial to their fish tacos and chicken tamales. Service is counter order and fast. I think their daily special is a bit overpriced but still reasonable.

Chela's has the best Mexican food in Ann Arbor. My only complaint is that they only have carnitas occasionally. The elotes are amazing!

You order at the counter but don't let that fool you.. This is Mexican street food that is good and fast and very delicious. I love the Fist tacos. The tamales are also very good.

Chela's is always packed. The fish tacos (soft) are my favorite. The lunch special (available all day) includes black beans, spanish rice, and a drink (limeaid, fountain, or mexican soda). Love the green salsa. Relatively lean for latin food. I could eat hear every day.

This place is great for walk-up street tacos. I recommend the barbacoa or the chorizo tacos, as is served. And add your salsa. They are fast and delicious. Prices are excellent for what you get. A good value. I have been coming here for a...More

I have been to the restaurant once and had their catering a events a few times and I am always happy with their meat based tacos, especially the barbacoa! The meat is so juicy, well seasoned and usually I am not a fan of soft...More
