    Food was terrible! Eggs were not fresh. I felt ill after. would never recommend this place to anyone who enjoys good Mexican food. Temperature of the refried beans=a one way ticket to food poisoning!

    Chilaquiles for brunch is just OK... Not matching my good Mexico memories of the dish.

    When it's crowded, leave your name and go grab a drink somewhere else. They really pack it in!

    A neighborhood staple. Whenever unsure of what to have for dinner think Chavela's!

    It is stunning how people seem oblivious that it failed its NY kitchen test, appealed for two months and only managed a B. It must be an awful kitchen to end up with a B. Cheap and tasty, but healthy?

    Ordered delivery. Asked for chiles rellenos, which they do very well, and got the chile relleno torta, which they do not do remotely well. Too bad, so sad.
