YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT...literally. Put poison in your body and it's released from your pores. Next time you find yourself at Chicos just observe the greasy and pimple infected faces and arms of it's overweight regulars. I visited Chicos and ate one order and broke out the next morning. What more can you expect from their secret ingredients: Expired tomatoes, Expired tortilla bread, artificial beef, artificial cheese and not to mention bacterea. Only in El Paso would this ever be called a ""tradition"".

It's all good!!

About the gay dudettes doing their thing there, even if you were a straight couple, take your crap elsewhere,like California, there is a time and place for everything. If id be the owner id probably do the same.

Food was good and inexpensive, no indigestion here. You idiots from New York and other non-El Pasoans go f*** yourselves.

And im not from Texas, straight up Northern CA..

Buffalo Wild Wings

Ok. the food is really good but if you wanna go watch a game have fun drink a beer and have some shots this not the place to go. We arrived at 10 pm asked for some drinks and after a hour were told that state law only allows 1x 24 oz beer or shot per hour per person. We order food which was really good but waiter said we had to slow down. It was a group of 8 of us going there after work. The waiter made it seem like he was doing us a favor by ordering the drinks for us. The bar had to closed for a bit cause of to much ordering drinks from also the customers. If you wanna go eat great place to go. But if your looking for Bar and Grill, go somewhere else. A friend that showed up around 1030 pm and drank his beer after 20 minutes was told he had to wait a hour to drink another beer. Would never go back to watch a UFC or NFL game. We left at 1am. I was really disappointed being it was Grand Opening. Also a note. This is not the first Wild Buffalo ive been to. Being to Orland Fl and San Antonio TX. Never had this issue.

Right to refuse service

I have always been served well at chicos,and never disappointed in the food.as for who they wish to serve,is their business.anyone who owns ther own business should have the right to refuse service.public displays of sexual affection should not be tolerated if the propriater sees it not fit.thats why we have bedrooms.

Overrated

Their tacos are not worth the homophobic aftertaste. It's a hometown sensation that isn't worth the hype nor the bad indigestion.

Abusive

Unbelieveable that a restaurant would hire goons to enforce bigotry and intolerance even though they are breaking the law.
A dangerous place in a dangerous town.
Definitely not recommended.

They hate gay people

They ejected gay people from their restaurant because of an affectionate kiss between two of them. They called the gay guys ""faggots."" The business owners won't apologize for the thugs that they contracted to be security guards. Go elsewhere until they change their policy.

nonstraight people not welcome

you can not say the g or h word on this site it says its inappropriate language this post is not here for debate just wanted to warn nonstraight people what you could be in for
By Andrew Kreighbaum and Darren Meritz / El Paso Times
EL PASO -- Two men men kissed at a Chico's Tacos restaurant, prompting guards to eject them and a police officer to endorse their ouster.
Civil-rights lawyers say the security staff was out of line. Police, though, contend that a business such as a restaurant can refuse service to anybody, any time.
In all, five men were ordered to leave the restaurant. They say they were forced out by homophobic guards.
""It was a simple kiss on the lips,"" said Carlos Diaz de Leon, a non straight man who was part of the group.

De Leon said the officer told the group it was illegal for two men or two women to kiss in public. The five men, he said, were told they could be cited for nonstraight conduct -- a law the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional in 2003 in Lawrence v. Texas.

Chico's was an experience I won't forget!

I loves me some good ol' cheap mexican food. So when I was on a road trip to Austin I stopped by Chico's for quick bite.

Well, the place was filthy. The staff was rude and bascially threw the food at you. The tacos were pretty greasy but what do you expect. I mananged to finish them off and got back into my car and drove off.

I was just outside of town when I thought I was going to die. I pulled into a gas station and ran to the rest room where I spent the next hour throwing up and crapping. Luckily the attendent of the gas station heard my cries for help and called 911.

When the paramedics arrived and put me on the strecher one of them noticed the Chico's soda cup I was drinking water from. He yelled to his partner ""HEY LANORE, we got another Chico's victim"". They rushed me to the nearest hospital where I ended up staying for 5 days. I was so weak when I was released from the hospital, my cousin from Austin had to fly to El Paso and drive me back to Los Angeles.

I don't think I'll be back to Chico's anytime soon.

Discriminatory Place. Boycott it!!

A gay couple was kicked out of the restaurant because they kissed. How backwards is this place?
All GLBT, family and friends of GLBT, should boycott this place.

Made Taco Bell Look Sophisticated

I will start off by saying that I am originally from Houston and used to Tex-Mex (what the rest of the U.S. calls Mexican Food). I have lived in El Paso for about a year and have adjusted to what is truly authentic Mexican food. I had the ""special"" experience of eating at Chico's Tacos and I will never eat there again. Their ""hand rolled tacos"" are what would be considered taquitos in Tex-Mex cuisine. The beef in them was dry with no flavor and they were covered in a watery taco sauce topped with cheese that was compliments of the U.S. government. The upside is that you can feed a family of 8 for $20. If you are under the influence of something you have been smoking or have been drinking heavily this might be a good late night stop. Otherwise I recommend that you steer clear of Chico's Tacos.

Still On My Mind

I was passing through El Paso on a road trip through the Southwest and saw Chico's Tacos and stopped in for a late night snack. There was a full house and a long line to boot and it was almost midnight so I knew this had to be something good. Oh how was I correct! The crispy rolled beef tacos were so good I literally went back in line again after finishing my first order for seconds! It has been a month since my road trip and this meal is the one that still lingers in my memory. The combination of those tacos, the sauce, the cheese and the green chile sauce on top is overwhelmingly good.
