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.

This restaurant definitely deserves a repeat, again and... More

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!

The blueberry margarita was amazing, made with fresh blueberries! The service was excellent--very attentive and kind. Water, Chips and salsa were brought to the table as we sat. The salsa was delicious, fresh and had a nice spice to it. We had the night's special and the pork chimichanga, both were very flavorful!

The service was great - the staff was sincerely interested in helping you and making sure you had a great experience. The food was great - the chips were warm and the salsa was some of the best I have had. The steak (and chicken) for the fajitas was outstanding. Friendly people with great food explain why the place was... More

Try the fish tacos and the must have frozen fruit margaritas. Pineapple and cherry! Queso is best in town. Best of all is the fast and super friendly service!
