When traveling to Chacala, Chicos is the first restaurant we go to! I can not recommend the Zarandiado fish more. You can choose the fish you want, then have it slow cooked to your preference. I recommend ordering the fish the day before or a...More

Return to Chacala with fond memories of seaside dining in palapa restaurant there. Having arrived in Chacala after sundown we did not get to Chico's until about 7:00. We anticipated great seafood like we've had there in the past. But, Chico's was terribly dirty, buggy,...More

At the suggestion of local folks, Chicos was nice enough to cook the fish our fisherman caught last night - sierra a la plancha. They added beans and rice to our fish, and it was delicious. Good limonadas and a reasonable bill.

Try their barbeque red snapper! You get a huge fish for $100 peso with beans, salad and tortillas! Not to mention that its right on the beach!

We spent the day at Chacala Beach to catch some of the awesome surf. We used a beach front table at Chico's restaurant, and had food and drinks throughout the day. As there were 5 of us, we were able to sample a few of...More

There is no better vibe on the beach than Chico's. It's always mostly Mexican guests with just a few tourists. Partly because of the lower prices, families come to eat while the little ones play in the surf - the laughter and energy is contagious....More
