This place is a diamond in the rough, the place is very small and old but the food is some of the best Mexican food in town, and there is no shortage of Mexican restaurants in Sequin TX

The tortillas are fresh and tender, delicious Migas and generous portions make this our favorite breakfast place. Cannot wait to go back for lunch.

Best corn tortillas I've ever had! Hole in the wall place, but the food is good and service friendly! We had beef fajitas and chicken enchiladas with green sauce. Walked away full and happy.

This is the first time we have had the opportunity to go to Chavela's since Chef Paul has been cooking there. Our food was very, very good. We ordered off the lunch specials menu. My meatloaf was great and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his sausage and potatoes. The vegetables were cooked just right and the loaded potatoes had real pieces... More

Chose from a limited menu that changes every day. The reasonable-priced specials feature a Central Texas mix of home-style and Tex-Mex favorites waiting on a steam table where you can see the options before you decide. Fast turnover from a heavy take-out business keeps everything on the steam table fresh. If you aren't taking out -- how about making a... More

They have huge breakfast tacos, very fresh, and cheap! Staff is always friendly. Since everything is made fresh and in small batches for the breakfast tacos it can sometimes get backed up a few min while waiting on more eggs/potatoes/bacon/etc. Thier homemade tortillas are fluffy and delicious. It is very small with very little seating. Much of their breakfast business... More
