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.

If you don't mind unspiced Mexican fast food on paper plates, you could do worse than Chela's. The staff is friendly; the food is prepared quickly; and seems generally fresh. And the portions are more than adequate. But you will have to season everything yourself...More

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.

The restaurant is quite small, located right next door to the liquor store. They do have a patio which was open when we were there in April. I got the carne asada and the chipotle chicken tacos along with sides - black beans and rice....More

What's not to like here? The staff is friendly and outgoing and the food is wonderful. I've tried just about everything on the menu by now and keep coming back for more. If you're looking for great tasting, authentic Mexican food look no further. It's...More

Very popular among Hispanic workers in the area. Small, fast-food, lots of menu options, particularly tacos. Bilingual. Very personable staff & enjoyable Latin music playing. Daily special $7.25 includes an entree, rice/beans, and beverage. I recommend the Jamaica (hibiscus) tea - skip the sugar &...More
