A great, authentic Mexican restaurant! If this was near home, we would eat here all the time. Good portion sizes. Great tasting food. Very attentive waitress. The furniture could use some updating/repairs, but the place was clean.

We happened on this restaurant while camping in Mt Airy for the weekend. The staff was courteous and prompt. No time waiting on our orders to be placed. Food servings are large and tasty. Very affordable meal and a pleasant atmosphere.

Went here for lunch over a short business meeting. No complaints about this place. If it wasn't on the other side of town for me I would definitely be a regular. The food was great and so was the service.

We eat at Chile Rojo often because the food is very good. It is also very reasonably priced.

Went here while staying at hotel across the street for business. Quick service, good food and very inexpensive. I got a delicious almost 3 pound burrito (chile rojo burrito) for about $9 and was completely stuffed. It was really good. Cheap beer too.
