One of My Favorite Places!

We have been going to the Chihuahua over the past 30 years or so. The Quinones (SP??) family that started the Chihuahua (and probably STILL own and operates the Chihuahua) previously operated the Guadalupe Center just west of the Salt Palace on First South and we were steady customers there too. That was an EXTREMELY popular place! We're going to the El Chihuahua tonight before watching my grandson's band next door at the Bar Named Sue and I JUST CAN'T WAIT!! It's ALWAYS delish Mexican food!!

Will NEVER go back.

My husband used to frequent El Chihuahua with his ex-wife for several years. He stated they used to be good. But as a Latino, I thought the food was terrible and not even close to being authentic. I gave it a 2nd chance, but not only was the food not good, the waitress BOTH times, asked how his ex-wife was, completely acting as if I wasn't there, and told my husband to tell her she said hello. RUDE!!!

For the dogs

""Party for six,"" I said.

""No problem,"" the hostess said. ""We'll get you in soon.""

An hour later, we were finally at our table.

OK, it was Cinco de Mayo. Maybe they didn't now how to handle this sort of dinner rush.

The server took forever to wait on us. A high chair for our child never materialized. The poor bus boy ended up getting us a refill on our chips (which weren't bad, although the salsa was watery) because he felt sorry for us.

Yes, yes. It was Cinco de Mayo. We'll give 'em a break.

The food finally came. The plates were hot, but the food was cold - and totally uninspired. It wasn't horrible, but if ""not horrible"" is your standard, there are far cheaper places to go in Salt Lake City. And if you're looking for great Mexican, there are far, far, oh-my-God far better choices in Salt Lake City.

The drinks could have been the saving grace - except that when the bill came, they had charged us too much. When I disputed the total, the girl behind the counter said I needed to talk to the manager.

""Great,"" I said, ""would you get her?""

""Oh,"" she said. ""She's very busy right now.""

When I told her that the drinks were the only good thing about the night, and that I'd be willing to give El Chihuahua another chance if she would respect a customer's dispute over the bill (we're talking $6 here, not $60) she said, ""Whatever, you'll be back.""

No, we won't.

This place is for the dogs.

If you don't mind price gouging on chips...

I have been a customer on and off for the past 20+ years, but I will never go back. The food is decent, but nothing all that special. It is a successful business mainly due to a lack of competition (there are few decent Mexican restaurants in SLC). The prices are a bit high for the quality and it wasn't helped by the fact that we were charged extra for more chips - without being notified that there would be an extra charge. It may be on the menu somewhere, but this is the first time I've been to a Mexican establishment that did this. Never again, especially after the attitude our waitress gave us when we asked about it!

YUMMO!

MMMMMMMMMMMMMM! I've been eating here since I was little! It is without a doubt, the best Mexican food I've ever had! I moved from the Salt Lake Area but, still go back to visit and eat. My family and i love it! The yummiest enchiladas ever! Salads are great and don't leave without one of the delicious frostys! Give it a try and you wont regret it! It's not always the fastest but the food is really authentic! they make their own tortilla chips also and they are so much better than wht you usually get at mexican resturants! I give it an A++++!

Best chili verde in town

I love the chili verde. My kids love it too! It is very authenic, or so they say. I'm a white girl so what do I know. I know like the chili verde and the salsa! Oh, really love the salsa and chips.

Best in Utah

I have been going here for many year, my parents and grandparents too. We love this place, its become a family fav. I would recommend it to anyone. They have a wide variety of food and the best chips and salsa anywhere. The owner is wonderful, however the new servers could use some work, still love the ones who have been there forever. Want a good one ask for Letti and Rick in the cantina. We love it!
