They are the greasiest, sloppiest, yet best tasting rolled tacos you will ever read eat. Always good. I have even taken several dozen ta os across Texas for my Chico's less friends. They couldn't eat them fast enough. They are always a treat.

They are not putting enough cheese on the tacos like they used to. The sauce was more watered down than before.

You either love Chico's or hate it. This location is old, dirty, and in a bad area. All this does not matter though, you go to Chico's to get their world famous rolled tacos, slurp down a Dr Pepper and get out of their. The tacos are addicting. Only 3 stars though as hey never updated their building with all... More

Very friendly folks welcome you to the eclectic little restaurant. The menu is simple and fairly priced. Naturally, we ordered tacos to go and were a little surprised when we opened the food at home to find small, rolled, hard-shelled tacos(?). They were tasty and I'm sure the misconception was on my part. Just know that you'll need to order... More

We call them "Tacos con Aqua." Locals love it! Meat in rolled tacos seems to be very low grade! Sauce looks. tastes like water that these tacos are served in. However, this is a local hangout, and appears to be a local sensation.

Nasty, nasty, nasty taco, this can't be famous. Frozen, fried taquito with little to no beef, drowned in water down paco tomato sauce. Don't waste your money or your time.

The tacos here are better than anywhere else. If you have ever lived in El Paso you have been to Chico's many times over. The tacos are special. Miss them when I am away from El Paso. A true El Paso place.

This a local place that has been around for about 40 years or longer. The main attraction is rolled up 3 corn tortillas barely stuffed with a meat mixture drowned in a pool of a tomato liquid and topped with what appears to be government cheese. For locals, it's a hit. If you're from out of town or didn't grow... More

This is a local favorite. If you grew up in El Paso, you probably love it. I thought their soupy concoction of a taco was awful.
