Food is great, service is decent. Have been for lunch, but am a little skeptical about dinner. Area is experiencing a lot of crime. There is a parking lot directly across from restaurant. Be careful.

The pork chimichanga is one of the best things I've ever tasted. The salsa is very fresh and the mango margaritas are delicious. This is the first place I ask to go when visiting friends in St. Louis.

Hubby and I visited here after MJ Live at river city casino. Food was fresh, even though it was near closing time. They close at 1030, which is pretty early for a Saturday in Soulard. Sangria was fruity and delish, will go again

Although it's not convenient for us, we make a special trip to eat here several times a year, which almost always involves wandering around Soulard to find some new way of getting to the restaurant. There's a parking lot across the street. Good margaritas, chips, salsa, queso, always a special of interest. Always a good time, good service, good food,... More

Very friendly staff, helpful to seat at 2:00 on a Sat.an unexpected crowd. My poblano stuffed peppes were good my husband's fajitas (chicken & steak) were excellante! Top shelf Marguaritas added a nice touch.

Stopped in on a whim and are really glad we did. We were greeted very politely and were immediately provided a table. The menu offered many choices - I opted for guacamole tostadas and my husband ordered tamales and we were very pleased with portion, cost and the service which was outstanding. This restaurant definitely deserves a repeat, again and... More

I have gone often and have always enjoyed my meal. The food comes out timely and looks and tastes great, very refreshing. The margaritas are also very good! I am always very happy with my experience here.

We often go to Chava's for dinner on Sunday evenings. I usually eat bean tostadas and my husband eats fajita nachos with chicken. We drink water with lemon. It is always filling and good and very affordable!
