    From the front staff to the end of the meal, we had exceptional service. Danny (waiter) was funny and patient and gave really good recommendations. I had to change my reservation the day of and Wilson ( who took my call) was super friendly and handled the request with no complaints. Love this place.

    Delicious food, great decor! We had the Brussel sprouts and guac to start, both delicious, then had a zucchini taco and a bison taco which were both very good. Flight of tequila is such a great idea and all the drinks were great. Cool vibe and reasonably priced for the quality!

    We are always looking for heated outdoor patois as the weather gets colder. This secluded patio at the back of the restaurant worked perfectly. Everything was perfect for our Friday night dining pleasure.

    We had a fun afternoon on the patio at Chula. We just happened to be there at happy hour which was great because of $5 Sol. The zucchini fritters were excellent and the ahi tuna with avocado to die for. Tasty tacos all round filled us up. All were a step up form the usual Mexican food I've had outside Mexico. This was more authentic. We will go back.

    Classic Mexican food that was absolutely terrific! Food and atmosphere was No. 1. Server not quite as good. He was extremely forgetful and if we didn’t call him back twice, he would have given our drinks and meals to another table. He could not remember who he had taken orders from or what table they were at. Small complaint. Again, food is the best and that’s what you go for!

    The patio is a nice space outside which is covered and has heaters. It was hard deciding what to order it all sounded good. We both enjoyed our meal and the portion size of the burrito is very good. It was one of the best I’ve had. There was no tea which is strange on a cool evening… even for a Mexican restaurant. The service was good and the food prompt.
