My family loves Chacho's! The food is authentic and delicious. The nachos are amazing and the margaritas are nice and strong. Casual Mexican dining, relaxed atmosphere and really nice staff.

We were really disappointed this time and it was sad.
Did the chef change? Has ownership chamged?
The food was sub par and the margarita was terrible!
We’ve been many, many times before and it was great. We always have had to wait a while for food but totally accepted the wait because the food was great, but not this time.
I’d it was my first time going I would have never gone back.
We’re atill sad.

Great food at a great price. This is authentic Mexican. Not as saucy as what we are used to. Order extra salsa oe guac and you will be fine. Great Tortilla soup. We were expecting slow service but we had a great server and things came hot and fast. Free parking in Midtown...amazing.

Low key family dinner, hit several birds for authenticity, to some pozole and tamale to go. One con, though was that it was very cold in the restaurant and on a cold February day, we would've appreciated warm and cozy.

The service was slow. We asked for water twice and it was never provided, even when we sat down. The ambiance wasn’t very nice, it felt like a sports pub with a group sitting in chairs pulled away from tables in the centre of the room. The room was quite cold also. The meal took forever to arrive and then was not only small, but not very tasty.

I made reservations for lunch at Chacho's in order to take 2 friends--Mexican food enthusiasts-- out for lunch.

Online information indicated the opening hour for Chacho's as 11 a.m., so I assumed it would be open for lunch. Further more, OpenTable took my reservation for lunch for 3 people at 1 pm.

(I had tried to telephone during the day but could not get through.)

When we arrived at 1 pm Chacho's was closed. I have never heard back from Chacho's to apologize or explain why my reservation was taken when it was not open. We were put to finding another restaurant for lunch.

Chacho's was, needless to say, a disappointing experience only for this reason: it was closed.

I would like to try the food to see what it is like--it may be fabulous!--but was forced to provide a "poor" rating in order that this important message get to Chacho's:

Ensure your online information re: hours is accurate and improve your communication with OpenTable.

One of our colleagues was retiring and wanted to go to Chacho's. I called several times and tried to get a hold of someone. I was not able to contact anyone. I guessed that the place was busy and that the employees did not have time to answer the phone. I made a reservation regardless because it was available on this website. A group of 8 of us walked all the way there and when we got there the place was not even open. We checked the hours on the window, it should have been open at that time. Not sure why they would not be open during regular business hours.

The tacos were great! The fish one was delicious. Guacamole was nice and so was the ceviche. We asked the waiter what the chef recommended and the enchiladas was one of the ones listed, however it was quite disappointing. The shrimp in the burrito was nicely cooked. Service was a bit slow because there was only one waiter for the entire restaurant, but he was very nice.

Business meal, with an important coleague, only to arrive on time and it was closed. Apparently, the owner opens and closes not based on the posted hours but when he chooses, according to a neighbor. Very dissappointed, Open Table should not be supporting places like this

I have been to Mexico many times so I admit I have high expectations BUT there is no excuse for food served lukewarm, after a long wait, and when the dining room is hardly full.

The Green Mole with Pork Ribs looked like pulled pork tossed with flavourless green sauce. It did not look anything like the picture of the same dish taken by a previous diner recently. Mole should be "all about the sauce" ie a little meat and a copious amount of sauce.

The meat inside the quesadilla al pastor tasted like the frozen shawarma meat. Its sour taste worried me and I expected to be ill after eating it. Fortunately, I was not.

My husband and I dined here with a friend who was craving Mexican food.

Having lived in Houston, TX five years, my husband and I definitely learned the difference between Mexican (Mex-Mex) and Texas (Tex-Mex), and Chacho's is mostly Mexican with some Tex-Mex influences.

So, my husband ordered tacos al pastor, but they were out of that... so he settled on tacos al carnitas. Tasty but "unseasoned."

Our friend and I ordered enchiladas (chicken) with salsa served with rice and refried beans AND chicken in mole sauce served with rice and refried beans and three warm corn tortillas. We found the chicken was dry / overcooked, the tortillas were good, salsa verde was tasty, and mole was not as deeply flavourful as it should have been.

But service was good, the setting was nice, clean and quiet.

We'll consider returning, if we don't find better Mexican food in Toronto.
