    This place has a small menu (mostly just chicken, beef and fish tacos) but that's a good thing -- they specialize in making AWESOME food. The food is very spicy and flavorful and you just can't find Mexican type food like this anywhere else in Western Pittsburgh. The staff is always friendly, the food comes quick and you get a lot of it, and the prices are extremely reasonable. I really recommend the fish tacos, it comes with a mango sauce or something that is amazing and it comes on a corn tortilla.

    The best Mexican place in town. My tip, order takeout if you can, because the dining area leaves a lot to be desired. It's cramped, loud and you're going to have to fight five other patrons once a table finally opens up. While this place lacks in ambiance, it more than makes up for it in excellent food.

    Listen to my words when I say this: Awesome Mexican food for SW PA/Pittsburgh Area. I lived in California, AZ, This is pretty close to authentic and could hold it's own to any Tijuana vendor. Overall This place rocks.

    Ate dinner here recently, and was delighted with some aspects, but disappointed at others. Walked in, was handed a menu and after deliberation ordered at the counter. I kind of felt like I was at a fast food restaurant like Wendy's or Taco Bell. I was given a glass and was directed to the Soda machine like at McDonalds. We placed an order for four different main course items which included my cheese enchiladas, the wife's tacos, the daughters chicken everything tray, and the granddaughters cheese quesadilla and two orders of chips and salsa. I've eaten at dozens of Mexican Restaurants all over the country from Michigan to Texas and out of the good ol USA in Mexico, and this was only the second occasion I had where you paid extra for the chips and salsa (maybe because the salsa is very special). Taco Bell is the other place. I rate the main course meals as just above average, and the salsa (Mango & Pesto) above average. The chips themselves are well above average. They provided jalapeño's on a table beside the soda machine, and they were very tasty, and a welcome addition to the chips and salsa. The Carmel Suckers as an after meal treat were very good. The place was very clean, the workers very friendly, ample parking and the establishment easy to find. I was just disappointed in the fast food service and being charged for salsa and chips. Will we go back? Probably not. My $47 bill plus tip was a little high for fast food service.

    Returned to the scene of the crime...Oh Yeah...Guess not! They moved. Thought LC would have a little bigger place. Guess not! Not Really! Went late for LC since they close at 8, went about 7:15... all tables were full but you order at the counter, they give you a number and wait for a table. Was able to get a table before the food arrived, which actually took about 15 minutes. Very noisy. Took a bottle of wine, if you want wine glasses take your own. Several tables had wine. Mostly families or young couples. If your a group...forgetableit..to crowded. Two groups of about 8 came after us and left. Now to the food... Oh it is very good and not ur usual, this is high quality Mex.

    To start they have the best Mexican food in southwest PA and the best customer service! I've been a few times and everything I've had there has been delicious. Went there yesterday and ordered shrimp tacos (2). After we sat down an employee can up to me to inform me that they only had enough shrimp for one taco and apologized. They gave me the option of changing my order completely or having one shrimp taco and another type of taco. I choose to have one shrimp and one steak taco. I admit I was a little bummed but things happen. When I got my order the server apologized for not having been able to complete my order for 2 shrimp tacos. Both tacos were great! The cashier came by my table when we were finishing to apologize and gave me a gift certificate for an order of shrimp tacos. I was going to be coming back anyways but this shocked me. They went above and beyond what most restaurant would do. Can't wait to go back for more shrimp tacos!

    Stumbled upon this place thanks to Yelp while driving through. Well worth getting off the beaten path. Not your typical Mexican joint. Delish fried fish tacos with mango salsa, unbelievably big burritos and yummy chips and salsa.

  • Sierra M.

    Working so close to this place is simultaneously the best and worst thing that's ever happened to me. Best because I have fantastic food basically across the street every single day. Worst because I spend all of my very little extra money there.

  • Brittany G.

    I love this place!! Some of the things that others have complained about are what makes it awesome to me. The fact that I can order and pay before I get my food is a plus to me. I HATE being ready to go home and have to wait on my check. Then wait on the server to come and get my card, blah, blah. You get my drift. I don't mind getting my own drink either, and the food is delicious!! I'm not a huge Mexican food person, but I think about this food all of the time. Chips and guacamole are excellent. I have had the mini chicken chimichanga, which is far from mini, a chicken burrito and chicken enchiladas. (Anyone noticing a theme here?). I love, love, love their red sauce it isn't spicy, but it is so flavorful. It is my favorite thing about this place. The food here has a LOT of flavor, unlike many Mexican restaurants. To me most Mexican restaurants have food that all tastes the same (equally bland/greasy/bad). Not the case at Los Chiludos. Also have a good Margarita. Definitely one of my favorites!

    This place is so awesome. I had the fish tacos and wish I could eat them every night for dinner. We have also used them for catering and they do a wonderful job. You get quality food for the price. Great restaurant!!

    I was directed here by my fellow yelpers, once again I was not let down. Came here for lunch. First Impression was this place is packed and there is a lot of movement behind the counter watching the chef crank out peoples dishes. I walked up to the counter since I wasn't sure of the ordering protocol in this place but the lady was really nice and explained everything to me and I was also very happy about her being up front with me about how long it was taking to get food out. She said that today they are really busy and it may take 30 minutes to get your meal. Fine by us, I ordered some salsa and chip but since I had never tried any of their salsa she was kind enough to give me a half order of the ranchero salsa and the mango salsa. I thought both were very good but the mango salsa was more my speed. For my lunch I had the Carnitas platter which was a ton of food for lunch. Holy cow and only for $8. The pork was flavorful and I really enjoyed the tomatillo salsa that they put over the top of it, I mixed it all together to make sure each taco I made had an equal portion of the sauce mixed into it. The pinto beans were outstanding to, who would ever think pinto beans could be that good. But I was really impressed with the overall service at this place. We got our food in about 15 minutes as opposed to the 30 min. but I appreciate the honesty, and each person here was very helpful and answered my array of questions with patience. They seemed like they were all generally have an okay time. This place almost is what will take me back to the taco shops of the Southwest US. I think I will officially designate this as my go to Mexican joint in Pittsburgh. I will certainly be back. Owww!

    Best Mexican we've had outside of Chicago and New York since we left California. Who would expect it in a strip mall in an office park in a Pittsburgh suburb? We've basically given up, but a Yelp review from someone who had worked at Chicago's excellent Topolobampo convinced us to give it a shot. The salsa was based on chiles, not watery tomatoes. The tacos were on soft corn tortillas, with onions and cilantro. The steak tacos were good, but the carnitas were excellent. The chorizo burrito (served "wet" for a small upcharge) was flavorful, the red sauce complex. Worth a drive.

    I've lived in NYC, Philly and am out here in the little town of Canonsburg for work. Los Chiludos makes it all worth it! One of the best Mexican places on the East Coast. I've had their pulled pork - delicious! Perfectly cooked and seasoned. I just had one of their vegetarian dishes, spinach enchilladas, today... and yum! Bring your appetite... portions are generous and the prices are fair. If you come for lunch, be prepared for a crowd. Yet, service was great and the place is clean. Awesome, awesome!! I just wish I could take them back to Philly with me!

    In recent years I have become a fan of mexican food, mainly at the hands of a small restaurant in Washington, Pa by the name of Old Mexico. I used to think that no place in the tri-state area compared to this place and I would make weekly visits to make sure I got my mexican fix. On a friends recommendation, I decided to try Los Chiludos in my own backyard of Canonsburg. Man, was I surprised! A husband and wife team prepare all the meals fresh, and from scratch. Each meal is prepared how you like it and the portions are huge. This is, by far, the best mexican food on this side of the state. No matter what you get, you will be satisified with the results and will be coming back for more. I am a regular now, just about every saturday afternoon my girlfriend and I go there and try to order something different each time so we can sample the entire menu, and nothing has disappointed us!

    They moved to Southpointe! Upside: no longer hidden, plus plenty of parking; more seating, clean Downside: now in a plain-Jane suburban office park strip center. Authentic, reasonable (our dinner tab for 4 people was $44), and most of all-DELICIOUS. I've had their carnitas (pork) tacos and the Sopes (with chorizo). Love both, but if they have not sold out of Sopes, which they had on my first visit, I highly recommend them. Two Masa cakes smeared with thin layer of refried beans, them crumbled chorizo, cilantro, cheese. So addictive. I must have put my fork down 8 or 9 times. Random notes: you must purchase chips and salsa. Variety of excellent salsa to choose from. On entree, they only have mild or hot salsa choice. The hot one does not mess around! Seriously hot (for me). Mild is a verde, which I love. Service is fantastic. You order at counter, are given a number to put on the table, then servers will deliver to table.

    This is the second site I've been to that gave this place positive reviews. I don't understand how people enjoyed eating there. I guess given the other bad options for Mexican food in Canonsburg maybe people just haven't had anything that was decent. I have a lot of complaints about the place (all central to their awful food) but I'll just make this comment and leave it at that: if you have to drown your food in processed cheese, your food is no good. Any Mexican restaurant that uses cheez whiz...lots and lots and lots of cheez whiz....is not authentic. 8/3/2011 - In response to Tara's comment, I have tried the nachos and steak burrito. It may not have been Cheese Whiz, but the cheese on the nachos was poured on in vast quantities and was most certainly a processed cheese that made the nachos soggy and not edible. The burrito was acceptable at best and was extremely salty. I appreciate the offer to come back and I'm sure plenty of people enjoy your food, but it's not for me.

    I hate to give this place a good review because others will flock here. After hearing about this place for quite some time, I finally went there. Staff could not have been nicer, food was great and prices were cheap. We had the sopes. It was enough for two people who had previously chowed down on a ton of chips. Very good. Very authentic. We will be back for sure.

  • Chris B.

    I was introduced to carnitas many years ago by a client in San Diego and to this day I can't get enough if I know they are good. Here they are excellent along with everything else I tried. This is for sure a hole in the wall that needs to be tried! Spicy Spicy!

  • Jennifer S.

    This is a fantastic place. My kiddo has food allergies and they totally cooperate with her special needs. The burritos are huge, chimmichangas cheesy, and guacamole with mango salsa is great! Everything valued for their fresh foods!

    (5)
  • Dewey V.

    Excellent food made fresh and with care in an open kitchen. The prices on the menu seem high but when you see the quantity of food you get you won't feel ripped off. I think a burrito is almost 2 pounds.

  • Renee R.

    Parking can suck, but it's worth it for the service and the food. Since moving to PA from CA, finding good Mexican food has been an uphill battle. Now that we know about Los Chiludos, we're thrilled! Order at the counter, get your food quickly (a good choice for lunch if you have an hour), and have enough food left for lunch the next day. Everything's good, but I recommend the carnitas platter!

    (5)
  • Natalie K.

    Great Mexican food...actually, really the best Mexican I've had in Pittsburgh. The fish tacos are to die for, the pork tacos (carnitas) are wonderful. It's in a strange location now, but who cares when you are looking for some great Mexican, right? Super friendly, very clean, superb food!

  • Kim S.

    Not bad for lunch but try to not bring children. We ordered food and then was told they only had one highchair and had to wait 35 min for the highchair. By then are food was cold and we wanted to kill each other because our son was ready to leave.

  • Nancy C.

    Mexican is one of my favorite types of cuisine. It is really hard to find really good Mexican food. Local restaurants are always better than chains & this one does not disappoint. A friend told me they had the best guacamole & she was right. It was so creamy & delicious. I dream about it & wish I lived closer to eat it more often. I also had the chorizo chimichanga & it was one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. I'm obsessed with both chorizo & chimichangas. Nothing better. I'm salivating just thinking about it. If you love Mexican, you have to try this place. It's one of the few PGH Mexican places worth going to.

  • Kyler W.

    This place is a popular spot for lunch. I have been here twice now. The service was good. The food came out fast. It's pretty decent Mexican food in relation to its geographic location. This chips are homemade and really good. They also have some cheap drink specials like $3 margaritas.

  • Stacie C.

    Yelp helped me find this place last year when I was looking for something new on my way to a Wild Things game in Washington PA (a yearly family event). We went back again this year and it was exactly as I remembered. The place is small and not really located near anything but business parks in Southpointe. But it's cheap and delicious and highly recommended. We've never had a problem dining in on a Saturday late afternoon (no wait time) but they are still hopping with take-out orders. I seriously think there were more workers behind the counter and in the kitchen than there were patrons. Based on their location, my guess is they do a great lunch business during the week. There are a few tables but I can see it easily getting crowded. They offer a wide selection of your typical Mexican fare at reasonable prices. And the portions are huge! The fajita platters are served overflowing with ingredients. The burritos and chimichangas are bigger than you might expect - definitely could be shared or last two meals. I've personally tried the chorizo chimichanga and the carnitas burrito. I'm still not sure which is my favorite. The queso dip and guacamole were favorites of our entire party, especially with those homemade chips. All our meals came with rice and beans. They have a few options for the drinker: tequila, margaritas, and a nice beer selection. Service was attentive and friendly. My only real reason for deducting one star is the lack of platter options. You can order a taco plate that has 3 different tacos but not an option where you might get, say, an enchilada, a taco and a taquito. Sometimes I like a little variety. Which is why I started going to Los Chiludos in the first place.

    Great Mexican food, friendly staff. I got the quesadilla.. Wonderful. The rice and beans were very good as well. The staff is really friendly. I will definitely be going back. The only complaint I have is their never open! Sunday's and Mondays closed and usually pretty early closing hours throughout the week.

Guacamole was the Real Deal ~ Tortilla Soup ~ Off the Hook ~ Moist tender chicken, ingredients fresh as Could ~ Should be! Right in the Heart of SouthPoint ~ 4 minutes from South Point's I 79 Exit!

    I visited Los Chiludos during a recent trip to South Hills Honda - that is to say, I never would have found this place otherwise. From the fresh chips to the variety of homemade salsas to the cold beers to the focused, well executed menu, I was very pleasantly surprised. The carnitas is the best I've tasted since we left Arizona--and, the overall flavor profile of their food is as authentic as it gets. If authenticity isn't your goal, then the extremely reasonable price point (as it relates to the sheer volume and quality of the portions) should be enough to make this your next lunch or dinner destination. I personally plan to go back...every single time we service our Honda!

    My title says it all. I love their chicken burrito and chimichanga. My wife always gets the steak quesadilla. All three are amazing. Great authentic ingredients. Very tasty. This will cost more than any other authentic mexican restaurant out there but it is worth every penny.

    I never really had real Mexican before ... Well at least not that I remember. I mean, I've actually been to Mexico a few times but I don't think you can refer what I did as "enjoying Mexican cuisine." Drunken chalupas after a bottle of tequila does not a meal make. I Really enjoy this place. Never had a bad meal here. Sometimes our company will cater a lunch through them and it's never a disappointment. From what others have told me and from my limited memory, they do a pretty decent job at authenticity here. Not to mention, price divided by amount equals a good bang for your buck.

  • M G.

    This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. This totally authentic cuisine is second to none. My experience goes something like this (beedubs the waitstaff knows my order by heart): 1. Start with hot (temperature not spicy) queso dip and mango salsa 2. Order mango Jaritto 3. For my main meal it varies from the Tinga tostada --which is two flat rounded corn tortillas underneath a bed of perfectly seasoned shredded chicken that has shredded romain lettuce on top with queso blanco drizzled over it all Or the steak salad-- don't ask questions just get it, so good. 4. If you've got a sweet tooth try the churros, they are fresh and hot and served with a side of chocolate The owners and waitstaff are always a delight. The kitchen and dinning room share the same area so if you plan on dinning in, be prepared to wear the smell of mexican food for the rest of the day :)

  • Ted S.

    This is not only the best Mexican place around Pittsburgh, it's one of the best Mexican places that I've ever been! The owner, hailing from Mexico City, has brought his homemade fare to Pennsylvania. The chips and homemade salsa are absolutely delicious. I've gotten the tortilla soup both times I've come here and it is great! Filled with shredded chicken, diced onions, cilantro and a perfectly spiced broth. The steak tacos, which you can get Mexicano (salsa, onions and cilantro) or Americano (tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and sour cream) are a force to be reckoned with! If you'd like it slightly different opt for the fish or shrimp tacos. The steak nachos are a meal unto themselves! Nacho chips piled high with marinated steak, cheese, tomatoes, and sour cream. Amazing! The spot is very clean and the staff are great! Another upside to any Mexican place worth their salt; they carry Jarritos drinks I'm the bottle. Get the pineapple! Come here!

  • Kitrina D.

    I really enjoyed Los Chiludos! I ordered the taco salad and my mom ordered a burrito. They were both huge and were reasonably priced. I highly recommend you add the guacamole to the salad or any meal because it's delicious!

    The past reviews say it all. If I'm in the area around lunchtime, I have to stop here. Usually go with a burrito but next time I will have to try the fish tacos.

    I have gone to MANY Mexican restaurants in California, Colorado and Pittsburgh. Los Chiludos, in Canonsburg is the real deal. It's a family owned small restaurant and I haven't had a mediocre dish yet. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for authentic Mexican food.

    (5)
  • Beth D.

    This could be the best Mexican food that I have ever had. I think they have a gourmet cook back in the kitchen. I wish that it was closer to Pittsburgh. We only stopped here because it was on the way to a play at the Little Lake Theatre in Canonsburg to celebrate my friend's birthday. Service was friendly and efficient. Steady stream of customers, so you know it's good, even though it's in an unassuming strip mall. Salsas with the chips are unique and tasty. If I had to recommend two things it would be to lighten up on the salt and build a vestibule at the entrance to catch the winter drafts in the front of the restaurant. Thanks for the wonderful, memorable meal.

  • Shiv C.

    While visiting my parents in Pittsburgh, I've been to Los Chiludos three times over the past year. I've tried at least a third of the menu and, for the most part, everything is pretty darn good. The chips are always freshly fried, perfectly salted, and are thick enough that they don't break when you dip them into guac (a big plus for me). The guac itself isn't as good as chipotle's (yeah I said it!), but its still pretty great. The carnitas sopes are awesome, especially the corn cakes, which are on par with the meat and queso fresco on top. The beef quesadilla is also good, albeit on the greasy side. Those were all the things I had the first two times I went, but the third time was kind of a let down. It was lunch time on Christmas Eve, so the regular cook might have been out, but the chorizo chimichanga I had wasn't that good (3 stars). It just wasn't that flavorful, but it was a great value for the price because its huge. I still think that this is about as good as Mexican food gets in Pittsburgh and a solid place to go to if you're in the area.

  • James B.

    My wife thinks the food is "too smoky". It's definitely different, but I like it... alot. I love their chicken tortilla soup. I always get the chilanga burrito, so I can't speak about other dishes.

    (5)
  • Aaron J.

    Good food. After moving north from Texas, I finally found a place worthy of being called "Mexican" food. A bit pricey for what we ordered, but it was all properly spiced and tasty. I recommend the chimichanga with red salsa, which has a great spicy, smoky flavor. The chicken tacquitos were also very good, with moist and we'll-marinated chicken and fried nice and crunchy. Definitely worth going back to.

  • Ryan E.

    We biked from Robinson to this place along the montour trail for lunch. Was delicious and worth the trip! Had the hot salsa which was flavorful and delicious. Would classify it more as Med than hot but there are always options to give it more of a kick if wanted. Got the Cod fish tacos with were outstanding with the mango salsa and cabadge slaw. I will be back, probably in a car.

  • Rangan M.

    Being a recent Pittsburgh transplant, I continue to be astonished by the lack of restaurant diversity in the south South Hills area (Mt. Lebo, USC, Bethel Park, Peters) . No Indian, no Vietamese, no Peruvian, no Korean. An ethnic food desert. Naturally I was excited about this place after reading the reviews. But spending $8-$9 for 2 tacos is just ridiculous. Tacos and burritos are meant to be cheap yet good Mexican fast food. The good part was that cod and carnitas were delicious. The chicken was okay. I would like to frequent more often but it is highly unlikely after dropping 50 bucks for just 9 tacos and chips/guac. Crazy. Would rather spend half that at Las Palmas.

  • Amanda P.

    This place is fantastic! Authentic Mexican food and great prices. I had the steak tacos. The steak was juicy and cooked perfectly. My friend ordered the burrito, it was huge! She said it was delicious. I wish this place was closer to me. Definitely worth the drive.

  • FoodJunky J.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh. The food is exquisite the staff is very friendly. Start by having the cheese dip and the mango salsa... always fresh and full of flavor. My go to are the chicken quesadillas with a side of rice and beans. The chicken is pulled and seasoned to perfection. The rice isn't sticky it's light and fluffy, and the beans are freaking heavenly. Try a Jarrito (Mexican pop) they are very yummy. And don't forget dessert... The churros are hot and served with a side of chocolate dipping sauce. My husband loves the fried ice cream... Enjoy and viva Mexico.

    I ate at the new Southpointe location yesterday for lunch and was pleasantly surprised to find a solid Mexican restaurant in the area. The place was very busy but service was very good and respectably timed. I ordered guacamole and chips and the chicken combo platter. The guacamole and chips were really great. I like the thick homemade chips, not too much salt, not greasy. The guacamole was perfectly under contrived. Avocado, lime, salt and done. Nice. The chicken combo came with taquitos, a taco and an enchilada. All came with rice and beans. I ordered the taco Mexicano with cilantro and onions. The chicken was shredded and marinated. They hold it in a red sauce. The soft corn tortillas are really good and I enjoyed my taco with a mild tomatillo salsa. I ordered the enchilada with red sauce and it was delicious. The taquitos were crunchy and tasty. I loved that the beans weren't the standard pureed canned and disgusting lump on my plate. Whole beans, nicely prepared and again very good. This isn't my go to cuisine. It's heavy on the calories and isn't really health food. I did note a taco salad and I guess I could have skipped the chips. I can recommend this restaurant. I remember eating at the old location ( I guess that's the place I ate at in Cannonsburg that closed) and it was not good at all. It was a long time ago. I guess they've had a chance to work on things because this place doesn't remind me of any I have been to in the Pittsburgh area.

  • Todd C.

    This is easily the best Mexican restaurant around. I work in Southpointe and eat here at minimum once a week. Staff is great and actually knows my "special order" every time I go. I've had a few items (burritos, fajitas, various specials, all of which are fantastic) but I always come back to the chicken combo platter. You get more food than you know what to do with for the price a a McDonald's value meal!! Can't go wrong here.

  • JBaby S.

    These raving reviews are from people who don't have high standards . We drove far to check this place out nothing impressed! Tasteless pintos, no refried beans, tasteless chicken in enchiladas, steak was tasteless and tough, Corn tortillas were wet and soggy, cheese dip thick and not very good, green artificial margaritas, very greasy ground beef... You have to pay for chips and salsa and get your drinks . You serve yourself... I wanted to believe the reviews! I think they lied so other people would come out and waste their money. The rice was the worst ever eaten in my 52 years. El campesino, Emiliano's and patron are far superior I found the lighting harsh and booths uncomfortable here. The only thing we liked was the chipotle salsa but it was not spicy Staff was friendly but not worth going back

  • Megan H.

    Easily the best Mexican (or quasi Mexican) around. Try the grilled jalapeños and the mango margaritas. I always get the spinach enchiladas. Never had a bad meal here. If you go for lunch, be prepared for a line. Or call your order in for take out.

    Best mexican in the Pittsburgh area, period. All food is fresh and it's not tex mex or Americanized slop. Fresh ingredients and good service. Only Mexican place where you can get fresh jalapeños, not out of a jar or can!

    Awesome fresh-made guac, super-friendly staff, and easy to order. Really huge portions - come hungry... Don't come expecting a ton of ambience - it's low-key here, just really great non-chain (errmm... Big Burrito, I'm looking at you right now) Mexican food.

    Very good, made from scratch food. Different than most mexican restaurants in that you order at the counter. Sort of fast-casual like Chipotle, but more authentic. Employees were all friendly and had great service. I will be going back!

    I ate at the old Los Chiludos on First Street, and thought it was not great. In fact, it's hard to believe this is the same restaurant, as, not only has the menu changed, the food has as well, and much for the better. We started with an order of guacamole and chips. The guac here is so similar to what you'd find in Mexico that I found myself instantly transported there in my mind, where it's most often a very simple dip of roughly mashed avocado with a squirt of fresh lime, a sprinkle of salt and maybe a handful of cilantro and chopped serrano chiles. Theirs was very much like that, but with the addition of a little garlic. The chips are wonderfully thick and crisp, with not a hint of greasiness to them. I went for the chicken enchiladas with green sauce, and asked for no sour cream or cheese. You get two with a lunch order, and that was plenty for me, as they fill them well. These are great...nice pulled chicken, good quality corn tortillas and a salsa verde that rivals the best I've had...fresh tasting and slightly tart from the acidic tomatillos. Delish. I asked the woman taking our order to skip the rice, and they very kindly put some extra beans on my plate. They make pinto beans here and keep them very simple in their brothy bath. Perfection. I've tried Mexican food all over the Burgh, and been disappointed every single time. I can say with confidence that this is the best I've had in this area. I worked at Frontera Grill/Topolobampo in Chicago for 8 years, and ate there every day I worked, so I truly miss eating the food and crave it regularly. And, while there's no restaurant outside of a few areas in this country where you can get Mexican food of that quality, this is fresh food, well prepared and full of flavor. Even though it's counter service here, the woman taking orders at the front came around to ask us how everything was and cleared our plates. She was friendly and helpful, and another woman working there held the door open for us when we left, so service is obviously a priority. It was busy when we visited and everyone was keeping their cool. Thumbs way up for the professionalism and smiles. They have successfully applied for a liquor license here, but it'll be a couple of weeks before they offer alcohol, and they've discontinued the BYOB policy, so it's soft drinks for now, but soon they'll have a full bar.

    This place is probably perfect for suits to pop in for lunch every day. These reviews are probably the same people the come in every single day. This place is located in the middle of hundreds of office buildings. There isn't anywhere else to eat around it unless you want to drive 20 min. These customers that work in the area have to eat here. But if you are trying to go out to eat a nice decent dinner with your family? Pass. This place is set up to serve regulars who know whats on the menu and don't care about being served like a regular restaurant. Order your food at the register when you walk in and grab a cup to fill up at the fountain. It's a very low class fancy Taco Bell.

    Excellent. Lunch platter of mini chicken burrito and tortilla soup was delicious and plentiful. Lunch buddy's chicken quesadilla was also delicious. Wait staff was very helpful and courteous. I thought the chips could have used a bit more salt though.

    Food overly salted. Over priced for the quality. The salsa Verde lacks flavor. I will not be rushing back. Table was also not bussed very well.

    After seeing so many positive reviews and working less than 5 minutes away, I had to try Los Chiludos. Their hours make it difficult for an after-work dinner (only open until 8pm, and not open for dinner at all on Mon-Tues) so I ordered take out for lunch. When I arrived to pick up the food there were no parking spaces - obviously a popular lunch spot. I excused my way around the line that went to the door to pick up my carry out and rushed back to my office to feast. I got the chicken burrito lunch (they call it 'mini' and it was still huge), wet with red sauce and cheese, and it was delicious. A bit heavy for a work lunch but the chicken was tasty and the chips on the side were a nice touch. I also got the chips and guac which was great as well - the chips were fried crispy and the guac was simple and a little creamy and tasty. My colleagues got the cod fish tacos and the lunch combo and received positive feedback from them. The rest of my team wants to go there for lunch tomorrow and I may join for round 2.

    Food here is phenomenal, one of the best Mexican food I had in East coast. Check Restaurant timings on the day you choose to go here. Cons: Very limited wines, beers & cocktails. Gets busier in lunch times and I felt many times that I am at a fast food place ! Will go back definitely when ever I visit Pittsburgh. I miss this food when I am at my hometown in NJ. I just wish I could take them back to New Jersey with me !!!

  • Snaefridur D.

    This place serves great good, as in it's very flavorful, high quality ingredients, and filling. The corn tortillas they use to make their tacos are great. I love their tacos, they stuff them with good meat and I never feel ripped off. You get a lot of food for a good price. You can get a whole platter of mixed food that easily stuffs 2 ordinary people for like 8 bucks. And you can always order a drink with your meal too.

    I love this place!! Some of the things that others have complained about are what makes it awesome to me. The fact that I can order and pay before I get my food is a plus to me. I HATE being ready to go home and have to wait on my check. Then wait on the server to come and get my card, blah, blah. You get my drift. I don't mind getting my own drink either, and the food is delicious!! I'm not a huge Mexican food person, but I think about this food all of the time. Chips and guacamole are excellent. I have had the mini chicken chimichanga, which is far from mini, a chicken burrito and chicken enchiladas. (Anyone noticing a theme here?). I love, love, love their red sauce it isn't spicy, but it is so flavorful. It is my favorite thing about this place. The food here has a LOT of flavor, unlike many Mexican restaurants. To me most Mexican restaurants have food that all tastes the same (equally bland/greasy/bad). Not the case at Los Chiludos. Also have a good Margarita. Definitely one of my favorites!

  • R P.

    Best Mexican we've had outside of Chicago and New York since we left California. Who would expect it in a strip mall in an office park in a Pittsburgh suburb? We've basically given up, but a Yelp review from someone who had worked at Chicago's excellent Topolobampo convinced us to give it a shot. The salsa was based on chiles, not watery tomatoes. The tacos were on soft corn tortillas, with onions and cilantro. The steak tacos were good, but the carnitas were excellent. The chorizo burrito (served "wet" for a small upcharge) was flavorful, the red sauce complex. Worth a drive.

  • Nina V.

    I've lived in NYC, Philly and am out here in the little town of Canonsburg for work. Los Chiludos makes it all worth it! One of the best Mexican places on the East Coast. I've had their pulled pork - delicious! Perfectly cooked and seasoned. I just had one of their vegetarian dishes, spinach enchilladas, today... and yum! Bring your appetite... portions are generous and the prices are fair. If you come for lunch, be prepared for a crowd. Yet, service was great and the place is clean. Awesome, awesome!! I just wish I could take them back to Philly with me!

  • Ryan F.

    This is the second site I've been to that gave this place positive reviews. I don't understand how people enjoyed eating there. I guess given the other bad options for Mexican food in Canonsburg maybe people just haven't had anything that was decent. I have a lot of complaints about the place (all central to their awful food) but I'll just make this comment and leave it at that: if you have to drown your food in processed cheese, your food is no good. Any Mexican restaurant that uses cheez whiz...lots and lots and lots of cheez whiz....is not authentic. 8/3/2011 - In response to Tara's comment, I have tried the nachos and steak burrito. It may not have been Cheese Whiz, but the cheese on the nachos was poured on in vast quantities and was most certainly a processed cheese that made the nachos soggy and not edible. The burrito was acceptable at best and was extremely salty. I appreciate the offer to come back and I'm sure plenty of people enjoy your food, but it's not for me.

    I hate to give this place a good review because others will flock here. After hearing about this place for quite some time, I finally went there. Staff could not have been nicer, food was great and prices were cheap. We had the sopes. It was enough for two people who had previously chowed down on a ton of chips. Very good. Very authentic. We will be back for sure.

    I was introduced to carnitas many years ago by a client in San Diego and to this day I can't get enough if I know they are good. Here they are excellent along with everything else I tried. This is for sure a hole in the wall that needs to be tried! Spicy Spicy!

    Mexican is one of my favorite types of cuisine. It is really hard to find really good Mexican food. Local restaurants are always better than chains & this one does not disappoint. A friend told me they had the best guacamole & she was right. It was so creamy & delicious. I dream about it & wish I lived closer to eat it more often. I also had the chorizo chimichanga & it was one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. I'm obsessed with both chorizo & chimichangas. Nothing better. I'm salivating just thinking about it. If you love Mexican, you have to try this place. It's one of the few PGH Mexican places worth going to.

  • Kyler W.

    This place is a popular spot for lunch. I have been here twice now. The service was good. The food came out fast. It's pretty decent Mexican food in relation to its geographic location. This chips are homemade and really good. They also have some cheap drink specials like $3 margaritas.

  • Stacie C.

    Yelp helped me find this place last year when I was looking for something new on my way to a Wild Things game in Washington PA (a yearly family event). We went back again this year and it was exactly as I remembered. The place is small and not really located near anything but business parks in Southpointe. But it's cheap and delicious and highly recommended. We've never had a problem dining in on a Saturday late afternoon (no wait time) but they are still hopping with take-out orders. I seriously think there were more workers behind the counter and in the kitchen than there were patrons. Based on their location, my guess is they do a great lunch business during the week. There are a few tables but I can see it easily getting crowded. They offer a wide selection of your typical Mexican fare at reasonable prices. And the portions are huge! The fajita platters are served overflowing with ingredients. The burritos and chimichangas are bigger than you might expect - definitely could be shared or last two meals. I've personally tried the chorizo chimichanga and the carnitas burrito. I'm still not sure which is my favorite. The queso dip and guacamole were favorites of our entire party, especially with those homemade chips. All our meals came with rice and beans. They have a few options for the drinker: tequila, margaritas, and a nice beer selection. Service was attentive and friendly. My only real reason for deducting one star is the lack of platter options. You can order a taco plate that has 3 different tacos but not an option where you might get, say, an enchilada, a taco and a taquito. Sometimes I like a little variety. Which is why I started going to Los Chiludos in the first place.

    I visited Los Chiludos during a recent trip to South Hills Honda - that is to say, I never would have found this place otherwise. From the fresh chips to the variety of homemade salsas to the cold beers to the focused, well executed menu, I was very pleasantly surprised. The carnitas is the best I've tasted since we left Arizona--and, the overall flavor profile of their food is as authentic as it gets. If authenticity isn't your goal, then the extremely reasonable price point (as it relates to the sheer volume and quality of the portions) should be enough to make this your next lunch or dinner destination. I personally plan to go back...every single time we service our Honda!

    This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. This totally authentic cuisine is second to none. My experience goes something like this (beedubs the waitstaff knows my order by heart): 1. Start with hot (temperature not spicy) queso dip and mango salsa 2. Order mango Jaritto 3. For my main meal it varies from the Tinga tostada --which is two flat rounded corn tortillas underneath a bed of perfectly seasoned shredded chicken that has shredded romain lettuce on top with queso blanco drizzled over it all Or the steak salad-- don't ask questions just get it, so good. 4. If you've got a sweet tooth try the churros, they are fresh and hot and served with a side of chocolate The owners and waitstaff are always a delight. The kitchen and dinning room share the same area so if you plan on dinning in, be prepared to wear the smell of mexican food for the rest of the day :)

  • Ted S.

    This is not only the best Mexican place around Pittsburgh, it's one of the best Mexican places that I've ever been! The owner, hailing from Mexico City, has brought his homemade fare to Pennsylvania. The chips and homemade salsa are absolutely delicious. I've gotten the tortilla soup both times I've come here and it is great! Filled with shredded chicken, diced onions, cilantro and a perfectly spiced broth. The steak tacos, which you can get Mexicano (salsa, onions and cilantro) or Americano (tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and sour cream) are a force to be reckoned with! If you'd like it slightly different opt for the fish or shrimp tacos. The steak nachos are a meal unto themselves! Nacho chips piled high with marinated steak, cheese, tomatoes, and sour cream. Amazing! The spot is very clean and the staff are great! Another upside to any Mexican place worth their salt; they carry Jarritos drinks I'm the bottle. Get the pineapple! Come here!

    I have gone to MANY Mexican restaurants in California, Colorado and Pittsburgh. Los Chiludos, in Canonsburg is the real deal. It's a family owned small restaurant and I haven't had a mediocre dish yet. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for authentic Mexican food.

  • Shiv C.

    While visiting my parents in Pittsburgh, I've been to Los Chiludos three times over the past year. I've tried at least a third of the menu and, for the most part, everything is pretty darn good. The chips are always freshly fried, perfectly salted, and are thick enough that they don't break when you dip them into guac (a big plus for me). The guac itself isn't as good as chipotle's (yeah I said it!), but its still pretty great. The carnitas sopes are awesome, especially the corn cakes, which are on par with the meat and queso fresco on top. The beef quesadilla is also good, albeit on the greasy side. Those were all the things I had the first two times I went, but the third time was kind of a let down. It was lunch time on Christmas Eve, so the regular cook might have been out, but the chorizo chimichanga I had wasn't that good (3 stars). It just wasn't that flavorful, but it was a great value for the price because its huge. I still think that this is about as good as Mexican food gets in Pittsburgh and a solid place to go to if you're in the area.

  • Aaron J.

    Good food. After moving north from Texas, I finally found a place worthy of being called "Mexican" food. A bit pricey for what we ordered, but it was all properly spiced and tasty. I recommend the chimichanga with red salsa, which has a great spicy, smoky flavor. The chicken tacquitos were also very good, with moist and we'll-marinated chicken and fried nice and crunchy. Definitely worth going back to.

  • Ryan E.

    We biked from Robinson to this place along the montour trail for lunch. Was delicious and worth the trip! Had the hot salsa which was flavorful and delicious. Would classify it more as Med than hot but there are always options to give it more of a kick if wanted. Got the Cod fish tacos with were outstanding with the mango salsa and cabadge slaw. I will be back, probably in a car.

  • Rangan M.

    Being a recent Pittsburgh transplant, I continue to be astonished by the lack of restaurant diversity in the south South Hills area (Mt. Lebo, USC, Bethel Park, Peters) . No Indian, no Vietamese, no Peruvian, no Korean. An ethnic food desert. Naturally I was excited about this place after reading the reviews. But spending $8-$9 for 2 tacos is just ridiculous. Tacos and burritos are meant to be cheap yet good Mexican fast food. The good part was that cod and carnitas were delicious. The chicken was okay. I would like to frequent more often but it is highly unlikely after dropping 50 bucks for just 9 tacos and chips/guac. Crazy. Would rather spend half that at Las Palmas.

  • Beth D.

    This could be the best Mexican food that I have ever had. I think they have a gourmet cook back in the kitchen. I wish that it was closer to Pittsburgh. We only stopped here because it was on the way to a play at the Little Lake Theatre in Canonsburg to celebrate my friend's birthday. Service was friendly and efficient. Steady stream of customers, so you know it's good, even though it's in an unassuming strip mall. Salsas with the chips are unique and tasty. If I had to recommend two things it would be to lighten up on the salt and build a vestibule at the entrance to catch the winter drafts in the front of the restaurant. Thanks for the wonderful, memorable meal.

    I never really had real Mexican before ... Well at least not that I remember. I mean, I've actually been to Mexico a few times but I don't think you can refer what I did as "enjoying Mexican cuisine." Drunken chalupas after a bottle of tequila does not a meal make. I Really enjoy this place. Never had a bad meal here. Sometimes our company will cater a lunch through them and it's never a disappointment. From what others have told me and from my limited memory, they do a pretty decent job at authenticity here. Not to mention, price divided by amount equals a good bang for your buck.

    This place is fantastic! Authentic Mexican food and great prices. I had the steak tacos. The steak was juicy and cooked perfectly. My friend ordered the burrito, it was huge! She said it was delicious. I wish this place was closer to me. Definitely worth the drive.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh. The food is exquisite the staff is very friendly. Start by having the cheese dip and the mango salsa... always fresh and full of flavor. My go to are the chicken quesadillas with a side of rice and beans. The chicken is pulled and seasoned to perfection. The rice isn't sticky it's light and fluffy, and the beans are freaking heavenly. Try a Jarrito (Mexican pop) they are very yummy. And don't forget dessert... The churros are hot and served with a side of chocolate dipping sauce. My husband loves the fried ice cream... Enjoy and viva Mexico.

    I ate at the new Southpointe location yesterday for lunch and was pleasantly surprised to find a solid Mexican restaurant in the area. The place was very busy but service was very good and respectably timed. I ordered guacamole and chips and the chicken combo platter. The guacamole and chips were really great. I like the thick homemade chips, not too much salt, not greasy. The guacamole was perfectly under contrived. Avocado, lime, salt and done. Nice. The chicken combo came with taquitos, a taco and an enchilada. All came with rice and beans. I ordered the taco Mexicano with cilantro and onions. The chicken was shredded and marinated. They hold it in a red sauce. The soft corn tortillas are really good and I enjoyed my taco with a mild tomatillo salsa. I ordered the enchilada with red sauce and it was delicious. The taquitos were crunchy and tasty. I loved that the beans weren't the standard pureed canned and disgusting lump on my plate. Whole beans, nicely prepared and again very good. This isn't my go to cuisine. It's heavy on the calories and isn't really health food. I did note a taco salad and I guess I could have skipped the chips. I can recommend this restaurant. I remember eating at the old location ( I guess that's the place I ate at in Cannonsburg that closed) and it was not good at all. It was a long time ago. I guess they've had a chance to work on things because this place doesn't remind me of any I have been to in the Pittsburgh area.

    This is easily the best Mexican restaurant around. I work in Southpointe and eat here at minimum once a week. Staff is great and actually knows my "special order" every time I go. I've had a few items (burritos, fajitas, various specials, all of which are fantastic) but I always come back to the chicken combo platter. You get more food than you know what to do with for the price a a McDonald's value meal!! Can't go wrong here.

    I ate at the old Los Chiludos on First Street, and thought it was not great. In fact, it's hard to believe this is the same restaurant, as, not only has the menu changed, the food has as well, and much for the better. We started with an order of guacamole and chips. The guac here is so similar to what you'd find in Mexico that I found myself instantly transported there in my mind, where it's most often a very simple dip of roughly mashed avocado with a squirt of fresh lime, a sprinkle of salt and maybe a handful of cilantro and chopped serrano chiles. Theirs was very much like that, but with the addition of a little garlic. The chips are wonderfully thick and crisp, with not a hint of greasiness to them. I went for the chicken enchiladas with green sauce, and asked for no sour cream or cheese. You get two with a lunch order, and that was plenty for me, as they fill them well. These are great...nice pulled chicken, good quality corn tortillas and a salsa verde that rivals the best I've had...fresh tasting and slightly tart from the acidic tomatillos. Delish. I asked the woman taking our order to skip the rice, and they very kindly put some extra beans on my plate. They make pinto beans here and keep them very simple in their brothy bath. Perfection. I've tried Mexican food all over the Burgh, and been disappointed every single time. I can say with confidence that this is the best I've had in this area. I worked at Frontera Grill/Topolobampo in Chicago for 8 years, and ate there every day I worked, so I truly miss eating the food and crave it regularly. And, while there's no restaurant outside of a few areas in this country where you can get Mexican food of that quality, this is fresh food, well prepared and full of flavor. Even though it's counter service here, the woman taking orders at the front came around to ask us how everything was and cleared our plates. She was friendly and helpful, and another woman working there held the door open for us when we left, so service is obviously a priority. It was busy when we visited and everyone was keeping their cool. Thumbs way up for the professionalism and smiles. They have successfully applied for a liquor license here, but it'll be a couple of weeks before they offer alcohol, and they've discontinued the BYOB policy, so it's soft drinks for now, but soon they'll have a full bar.

    This place is probably perfect for suits to pop in for lunch every day. These reviews are probably the same people the come in every single day. This place is located in the middle of hundreds of office buildings. There isn't anywhere else to eat around it unless you want to drive 20 min. These customers that work in the area have to eat here. But if you are trying to go out to eat a nice decent dinner with your family? Pass. This place is set up to serve regulars who know whats on the menu and don't care about being served like a regular restaurant. Order your food at the register when you walk in and grab a cup to fill up at the fountain. It's a very low class fancy Taco Bell.

    Food overly salted. Over priced for the quality. The salsa Verde lacks flavor. I will not be rushing back. Table was also not bussed very well.

    These raving reviews are from people who don't have high standards . We drove far to check this place out nothing impressed! Tasteless pintos, no refried beans, tasteless chicken in enchiladas, steak was tasteless and tough, Corn tortillas were wet and soggy, cheese dip thick and not very good, green artificial margaritas, very greasy ground beef... You have to pay for chips and salsa and get your drinks . You serve yourself... I wanted to believe the reviews! I think they lied so other people would come out and waste their money. The rice was the worst ever eaten in my 52 years. El campesino, Emiliano's and patron are far superior I found the lighting harsh and booths uncomfortable here. The only thing we liked was the chipotle salsa but it was not spicy Staff was friendly but not worth going back

    Easily the best Mexican (or quasi Mexican) around. Try the grilled jalapeños and the mango margaritas. I always get the spinach enchiladas. Never had a bad meal here. If you go for lunch, be prepared for a line. Or call your order in for take out.

    Best mexican in the Pittsburgh area, period. All food is fresh and it's not tex mex or Americanized slop. Fresh ingredients and good service. Only Mexican place where you can get fresh jalapeños, not out of a jar or can!

    This place has a small menu (mostly just chicken, beef and fish tacos) but that's a good thing -- they specialize in making AWESOME food. The food is very spicy and flavorful and you just can't find Mexican type food like this anywhere else in Western Pittsburgh. The staff is always friendly, the food comes quick and you get a lot of it, and the prices are extremely reasonable. I really recommend the fish tacos, it comes with a mango sauce or something that is amazing and it comes on a corn tortilla.

    The best Mexican place in town. My tip, order takeout if you can, because the dining area leaves a lot to be desired. It's cramped, loud and you're going to have to fight five other patrons once a table finally opens up. While this place lacks in ambiance, it more than makes up for it in excellent food.

    Ate dinner here recently, and was delighted with some aspects, but disappointed at others. Walked in, was handed a menu and after deliberation ordered at the counter. I kind of felt like I was at a fast food restaurant like Wendy's or Taco Bell. I was given a glass and was directed to the Soda machine like at McDonalds. We placed an order for four different main course items which included my cheese enchiladas, the wife's tacos, the daughters chicken everything tray, and the granddaughters cheese quesadilla and two orders of chips and salsa. I've eaten at dozens of Mexican Restaurants all over the country from Michigan to Texas and out of the good ol USA in Mexico, and this was only the second occasion I had where you paid extra for the chips and salsa (maybe because the salsa is very special). Taco Bell is the other place. I rate the main course meals as just above average, and the salsa (Mango & Pesto) above average. The chips themselves are well above average. They provided jalapeño's on a table beside the soda machine, and they were very tasty, and a welcome addition to the chips and salsa. The Carmel Suckers as an after meal treat were very good. The place was very clean, the workers very friendly, ample parking and the establishment easy to find. I was just disappointed in the fast food service and being charged for salsa and chips. Will we go back? Probably not. My $47 bill plus tip was a little high for fast food service.

    After seeing so many positive reviews and working less than 5 minutes away, I had to try Los Chiludos. Their hours make it difficult for an after-work dinner (only open until 8pm, and not open for dinner at all on Mon-Tues) so I ordered take out for lunch. When I arrived to pick up the food there were no parking spaces - obviously a popular lunch spot. I excused my way around the line that went to the door to pick up my carry out and rushed back to my office to feast. I got the chicken burrito lunch (they call it 'mini' and it was still huge), wet with red sauce and cheese, and it was delicious. A bit heavy for a work lunch but the chicken was tasty and the chips on the side were a nice touch. I also got the chips and guac which was great as well - the chips were fried crispy and the guac was simple and a little creamy and tasty. My colleagues got the cod fish tacos and the lunch combo and received positive feedback from them. The rest of my team wants to go there for lunch tomorrow and I may join for round 2.

    Food here is phenomenal, one of the best Mexican food I had in East coast. Check Restaurant timings on the day you choose to go here. Cons: Very limited wines, beers & cocktails. Gets busier in lunch times and I felt many times that I am at a fast food place ! Will go back definitely when ever I visit Pittsburgh. I miss this food when I am at my hometown in NJ. I just wish I could take them back to New Jersey with me !!!

    This place serves great good, as in it's very flavorful, high quality ingredients, and filling. The corn tortillas they use to make their tacos are great. I love their tacos, they stuff them with good meat and I never feel ripped off. You get a lot of food for a good price. You can get a whole platter of mixed food that easily stuffs 2 ordinary people for like 8 bucks. And you can always order a drink with your meal too.

    To start they have the best Mexican food in southwest PA and the best customer service! I've been a few times and everything I've had there has been delicious. Went there yesterday and ordered shrimp tacos (2). After we sat down an employee can up to me to inform me that they only had enough shrimp for one taco and apologized. They gave me the option of changing my order completely or having one shrimp taco and another type of taco. I choose to have one shrimp and one steak taco. I admit I was a little bummed but things happen. When I got my order the server apologized for not having been able to complete my order for 2 shrimp tacos. Both tacos were great! The cashier came by my table when we were finishing to apologize and gave me a gift certificate for an order of shrimp tacos. I was going to be coming back anyways but this shocked me. They went above and beyond what most restaurant would do. Can't wait to go back for more shrimp tacos!

    They moved to Southpointe! Upside: no longer hidden, plus plenty of parking; more seating, clean Downside: now in a plain-Jane suburban office park strip center. Authentic, reasonable (our dinner tab for 4 people was $44), and most of all-DELICIOUS. I've had their carnitas (pork) tacos and the Sopes (with chorizo). Love both, but if they have not sold out of Sopes, which they had on my first visit, I highly recommend them. Two Masa cakes smeared with thin layer of refried beans, them crumbled chorizo, cilantro, cheese. So addictive. I must have put my fork down 8 or 9 times. Random notes: you must purchase chips and salsa. Variety of excellent salsa to choose from. On entree, they only have mild or hot salsa choice. The hot one does not mess around! Seriously hot (for me). Mild is a verde, which I love. Service is fantastic. You order at counter, are given a number to put on the table, then servers will deliver to table.

    Returned to the scene of the crime...Oh Yeah...Guess not! They moved. Thought LC would have a little bigger place. Guess not! Not Really! Went late for LC since they close at 8, went about 7:15... all tables were full but you order at the counter, they give you a number and wait for a table. Was able to get a table before the food arrived, which actually took about 15 minutes. Very noisy. Took a bottle of wine, if you want wine glasses take your own. Several tables had wine. Mostly families or young couples. If your a group...forgetableit..to crowded. Two groups of about 8 came after us and left. Now to the food... Oh it is very good and not ur usual, this is high quality Mex.

    I was directed here by my fellow yelpers, once again I was not let down. Came here for lunch. First Impression was this place is packed and there is a lot of movement behind the counter watching the chef crank out peoples dishes. I walked up to the counter since I wasn't sure of the ordering protocol in this place but the lady was really nice and explained everything to me and I was also very happy about her being up front with me about how long it was taking to get food out. She said that today they are really busy and it may take 30 minutes to get your meal. Fine by us, I ordered some salsa and chip but since I had never tried any of their salsa she was kind enough to give me a half order of the ranchero salsa and the mango salsa. I thought both were very good but the mango salsa was more my speed. For my lunch I had the Carnitas platter which was a ton of food for lunch. Holy cow and only for $8. The pork was flavorful and I really enjoyed the tomatillo salsa that they put over the top of it, I mixed it all together to make sure each taco I made had an equal portion of the sauce mixed into it. The pinto beans were outstanding to, who would ever think pinto beans could be that good. But I was really impressed with the overall service at this place. We got our food in about 15 minutes as opposed to the 30 min. but I appreciate the honesty, and each person here was very helpful and answered my array of questions with patience. They seemed like they were all generally have an okay time. This place almost is what will take me back to the taco shops of the Southwest US. I think I will officially designate this as my go to Mexican joint in Pittsburgh. I will certainly be back. Owww!

    Excellent food made fresh and with care in an open kitchen. The prices on the menu seem high but when you see the quantity of food you get you won't feel ripped off. I think a burrito is almost 2 pounds.

  • Renee R.

    Parking can suck, but it's worth it for the service and the food. Since moving to PA from CA, finding good Mexican food has been an uphill battle. Now that we know about Los Chiludos, we're thrilled! Order at the counter, get your food quickly (a good choice for lunch if you have an hour), and have enough food left for lunch the next day. Everything's good, but I recommend the carnitas platter!

  • Natalie K.

    Great Mexican food...actually, really the best Mexican I've had in Pittsburgh. The fish tacos are to die for, the pork tacos (carnitas) are wonderful. It's in a strange location now, but who cares when you are looking for some great Mexican, right? Super friendly, very clean, superb food!

  • Kevin B.

    In recent years I have become a fan of mexican food, mainly at the hands of a small restaurant in Washington, Pa by the name of Old Mexico. I used to think that no place in the tri-state area compared to this place and I would make weekly visits to make sure I got my mexican fix. On a friends recommendation, I decided to try Los Chiludos in my own backyard of Canonsburg. Man, was I surprised! A husband and wife team prepare all the meals fresh, and from scratch. Each meal is prepared how you like it and the portions are huge. This is, by far, the best mexican food on this side of the state. No matter what you get, you will be satisified with the results and will be coming back for more. I am a regular now, just about every saturday afternoon my girlfriend and I go there and try to order something different each time so we can sample the entire menu, and nothing has disappointed us!

    Not bad for lunch but try to not bring children. We ordered food and then was told they only had one highchair and had to wait 35 min for the highchair. By then are food was cold and we wanted to kill each other because our son was ready to leave.

  • Nancy C.

    Mexican is one of my favorite types of cuisine. It is really hard to find really good Mexican food. Local restaurants are always better than chains & this one does not disappoint. A friend told me they had the best guacamole & she was right. It was so creamy & delicious. I dream about it & wish I lived closer to eat it more often. I also had the chorizo chimichanga & it was one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. I'm obsessed with both chorizo & chimichangas. Nothing better. I'm salivating just thinking about it. If you love Mexican, you have to try this place. It's one of the few PGH Mexican places worth going to.

    I have gone to MANY Mexican restaurants in California, Colorado and Pittsburgh. Los Chiludos, in Canonsburg is the real deal. It's a family owned small restaurant and I haven't had a mediocre dish yet. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for authentic Mexican food.

  • Stacie C.

    Yelp helped me find this place last year when I was looking for something new on my way to a Wild Things game in Washington PA (a yearly family event). We went back again this year and it was exactly as I remembered. The place is small and not really located near anything but business parks in Southpointe. But it's cheap and delicious and highly recommended. We've never had a problem dining in on a Saturday late afternoon (no wait time) but they are still hopping with take-out orders. I seriously think there were more workers behind the counter and in the kitchen than there were patrons. Based on their location, my guess is they do a great lunch business during the week. There are a few tables but I can see it easily getting crowded. They offer a wide selection of your typical Mexican fare at reasonable prices. And the portions are huge! The fajita platters are served overflowing with ingredients. The burritos and chimichangas are bigger than you might expect - definitely could be shared or last two meals. I've personally tried the chorizo chimichanga and the carnitas burrito. I'm still not sure which is my favorite. The queso dip and guacamole were favorites of our entire party, especially with those homemade chips. All our meals came with rice and beans. They have a few options for the drinker: tequila, margaritas, and a nice beer selection. Service was attentive and friendly. My only real reason for deducting one star is the lack of platter options. You can order a taco plate that has 3 different tacos but not an option where you might get, say, an enchilada, a taco and a taquito. Sometimes I like a little variety. Which is why I started going to Los Chiludos in the first place.

    I visited Los Chiludos during a recent trip to South Hills Honda - that is to say, I never would have found this place otherwise. From the fresh chips to the variety of homemade salsas to the cold beers to the focused, well executed menu, I was very pleasantly surprised. The carnitas is the best I've tasted since we left Arizona--and, the overall flavor profile of their food is as authentic as it gets. If authenticity isn't your goal, then the extremely reasonable price point (as it relates to the sheer volume and quality of the portions) should be enough to make this your next lunch or dinner destination. I personally plan to go back...every single time we service our Honda!

    This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. This totally authentic cuisine is second to none. My experience goes something like this (beedubs the waitstaff knows my order by heart): 1. Start with hot (temperature not spicy) queso dip and mango salsa 2. Order mango Jaritto 3. For my main meal it varies from the Tinga tostada --which is two flat rounded corn tortillas underneath a bed of perfectly seasoned shredded chicken that has shredded romain lettuce on top with queso blanco drizzled over it all Or the steak salad-- don't ask questions just get it, so good. 4. If you've got a sweet tooth try the churros, they are fresh and hot and served with a side of chocolate The owners and waitstaff are always a delight. The kitchen and dinning room share the same area so if you plan on dinning in, be prepared to wear the smell of mexican food for the rest of the day :)

  • Ted S.

    This is not only the best Mexican place around Pittsburgh, it's one of the best Mexican places that I've ever been! The owner, hailing from Mexico City, has brought his homemade fare to Pennsylvania. The chips and homemade salsa are absolutely delicious. I've gotten the tortilla soup both times I've come here and it is great! Filled with shredded chicken, diced onions, cilantro and a perfectly spiced broth. The steak tacos, which you can get Mexicano (salsa, onions and cilantro) or Americano (tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and sour cream) are a force to be reckoned with! If you'd like it slightly different opt for the fish or shrimp tacos. The steak nachos are a meal unto themselves! Nacho chips piled high with marinated steak, cheese, tomatoes, and sour cream. Amazing! The spot is very clean and the staff are great! Another upside to any Mexican place worth their salt; they carry Jarritos drinks I'm the bottle. Get the pineapple! Come here!

  • Beth D.

    This could be the best Mexican food that I have ever had. I think they have a gourmet cook back in the kitchen. I wish that it was closer to Pittsburgh. We only stopped here because it was on the way to a play at the Little Lake Theatre in Canonsburg to celebrate my friend's birthday. Service was friendly and efficient. Steady stream of customers, so you know it's good, even though it's in an unassuming strip mall. Salsas with the chips are unique and tasty. If I had to recommend two things it would be to lighten up on the salt and build a vestibule at the entrance to catch the winter drafts in the front of the restaurant. Thanks for the wonderful, memorable meal.

  • Shiv C.

    While visiting my parents in Pittsburgh, I've been to Los Chiludos three times over the past year. I've tried at least a third of the menu and, for the most part, everything is pretty darn good. The chips are always freshly fried, perfectly salted, and are thick enough that they don't break when you dip them into guac (a big plus for me). The guac itself isn't as good as chipotle's (yeah I said it!), but its still pretty great. The carnitas sopes are awesome, especially the corn cakes, which are on par with the meat and queso fresco on top. The beef quesadilla is also good, albeit on the greasy side. Those were all the things I had the first two times I went, but the third time was kind of a let down. It was lunch time on Christmas Eve, so the regular cook might have been out, but the chorizo chimichanga I had wasn't that good (3 stars). It just wasn't that flavorful, but it was a great value for the price because its huge. I still think that this is about as good as Mexican food gets in Pittsburgh and a solid place to go to if you're in the area.

    Good food. After moving north from Texas, I finally found a place worthy of being called "Mexican" food. A bit pricey for what we ordered, but it was all properly spiced and tasty. I recommend the chimichanga with red salsa, which has a great spicy, smoky flavor. The chicken tacquitos were also very good, with moist and we'll-marinated chicken and fried nice and crunchy. Definitely worth going back to.

    We biked from Robinson to this place along the montour trail for lunch. Was delicious and worth the trip! Had the hot salsa which was flavorful and delicious. Would classify it more as Med than hot but there are always options to give it more of a kick if wanted. Got the Cod fish tacos with were outstanding with the mango salsa and cabadge slaw. I will be back, probably in a car.

  • Rangan M.

    Being a recent Pittsburgh transplant, I continue to be astonished by the lack of restaurant diversity in the south South Hills area (Mt. Lebo, USC, Bethel Park, Peters) . No Indian, no Vietamese, no Peruvian, no Korean. An ethnic food desert. Naturally I was excited about this place after reading the reviews. But spending $8-$9 for 2 tacos is just ridiculous. Tacos and burritos are meant to be cheap yet good Mexican fast food. The good part was that cod and carnitas were delicious. The chicken was okay. I would like to frequent more often but it is highly unlikely after dropping 50 bucks for just 9 tacos and chips/guac. Crazy. Would rather spend half that at Las Palmas.

    I never really had real Mexican before ... Well at least not that I remember. I mean, I've actually been to Mexico a few times but I don't think you can refer what I did as "enjoying Mexican cuisine." Drunken chalupas after a bottle of tequila does not a meal make. I Really enjoy this place. Never had a bad meal here. Sometimes our company will cater a lunch through them and it's never a disappointment. From what others have told me and from my limited memory, they do a pretty decent job at authenticity here. Not to mention, price divided by amount equals a good bang for your buck.

    This place is fantastic! Authentic Mexican food and great prices. I had the steak tacos. The steak was juicy and cooked perfectly. My friend ordered the burrito, it was huge! She said it was delicious. I wish this place was closer to me. Definitely worth the drive.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh. The food is exquisite the staff is very friendly. Start by having the cheese dip and the mango salsa... always fresh and full of flavor. My go to are the chicken quesadillas with a side of rice and beans. The chicken is pulled and seasoned to perfection. The rice isn't sticky it's light and fluffy, and the beans are freaking heavenly. Try a Jarrito (Mexican pop) they are very yummy. And don't forget dessert... The churros are hot and served with a side of chocolate dipping sauce. My husband loves the fried ice cream... Enjoy and viva Mexico.

    This place has a small menu (mostly just chicken, beef and fish tacos) but that's a good thing -- they specialize in making AWESOME food. The food is very spicy and flavorful and you just can't find Mexican type food like this anywhere else in Western Pittsburgh. The staff is always friendly, the food comes quick and you get a lot of it, and the prices are extremely reasonable. I really recommend the fish tacos, it comes with a mango sauce or something that is amazing and it comes on a corn tortilla.

    I ate at the new Southpointe location yesterday for lunch and was pleasantly surprised to find a solid Mexican restaurant in the area. The place was very busy but service was very good and respectably timed. I ordered guacamole and chips and the chicken combo platter. The guacamole and chips were really great. I like the thick homemade chips, not too much salt, not greasy. The guacamole was perfectly under contrived. Avocado, lime, salt and done. Nice. The chicken combo came with taquitos, a taco and an enchilada. All came with rice and beans. I ordered the taco Mexicano with cilantro and onions. The chicken was shredded and marinated. They hold it in a red sauce. The soft corn tortillas are really good and I enjoyed my taco with a mild tomatillo salsa. I ordered the enchilada with red sauce and it was delicious. The taquitos were crunchy and tasty. I loved that the beans weren't the standard pureed canned and disgusting lump on my plate. Whole beans, nicely prepared and again very good. This isn't my go to cuisine. It's heavy on the calories and isn't really health food. I did note a taco salad and I guess I could have skipped the chips. I can recommend this restaurant. I remember eating at the old location ( I guess that's the place I ate at in Cannonsburg that closed) and it was not good at all. It was a long time ago. I guess they've had a chance to work on things because this place doesn't remind me of any I have been to in the Pittsburgh area.

    This is easily the best Mexican restaurant around. I work in Southpointe and eat here at minimum once a week. Staff is great and actually knows my "special order" every time I go. I've had a few items (burritos, fajitas, various specials, all of which are fantastic) but I always come back to the chicken combo platter. You get more food than you know what to do with for the price a a McDonald's value meal!! Can't go wrong here.

    Awesome fresh-made guac, super-friendly staff, and easy to order. Really huge portions - come hungry... Don't come expecting a ton of ambience - it's low-key here, just really great non-chain (errmm... Big Burrito, I'm looking at you right now) Mexican food.

    These raving reviews are from people who don't have high standards . We drove far to check this place out nothing impressed! Tasteless pintos, no refried beans, tasteless chicken in enchiladas, steak was tasteless and tough, Corn tortillas were wet and soggy, cheese dip thick and not very good, green artificial margaritas, very greasy ground beef... You have to pay for chips and salsa and get your drinks . You serve yourself... I wanted to believe the reviews! I think they lied so other people would come out and waste their money. The rice was the worst ever eaten in my 52 years. El campesino, Emiliano's and patron are far superior I found the lighting harsh and booths uncomfortable here. The only thing we liked was the chipotle salsa but it was not spicy Staff was friendly but not worth going back

    I ate at the old Los Chiludos on First Street, and thought it was not great. In fact, it's hard to believe this is the same restaurant, as, not only has the menu changed, the food has as well, and much for the better. We started with an order of guacamole and chips. The guac here is so similar to what you'd find in Mexico that I found myself instantly transported there in my mind, where it's most often a very simple dip of roughly mashed avocado with a squirt of fresh lime, a sprinkle of salt and maybe a handful of cilantro and chopped serrano chiles. Theirs was very much like that, but with the addition of a little garlic. The chips are wonderfully thick and crisp, with not a hint of greasiness to them. I went for the chicken enchiladas with green sauce, and asked for no sour cream or cheese. You get two with a lunch order, and that was plenty for me, as they fill them well. These are great...nice pulled chicken, good quality corn tortillas and a salsa verde that rivals the best I've had...fresh tasting and slightly tart from the acidic tomatillos. Delish. I asked the woman taking our order to skip the rice, and they very kindly put some extra beans on my plate. They make pinto beans here and keep them very simple in their brothy bath. Perfection. I've tried Mexican food all over the Burgh, and been disappointed every single time. I can say with confidence that this is the best I've had in this area. I worked at Frontera Grill/Topolobampo in Chicago for 8 years, and ate there every day I worked, so I truly miss eating the food and crave it regularly. And, while there's no restaurant outside of a few areas in this country where you can get Mexican food of that quality, this is fresh food, well prepared and full of flavor. Even though it's counter service here, the woman taking orders at the front came around to ask us how everything was and cleared our plates. She was friendly and helpful, and another woman working there held the door open for us when we left, so service is obviously a priority. It was busy when we visited and everyone was keeping their cool. Thumbs way up for the professionalism and smiles. They have successfully applied for a liquor license here, but it'll be a couple of weeks before they offer alcohol, and they've discontinued the BYOB policy, so it's soft drinks for now, but soon they'll have a full bar.

    This place is probably perfect for suits to pop in for lunch every day. These reviews are probably the same people the come in every single day. This place is located in the middle of hundreds of office buildings. There isn't anywhere else to eat around it unless you want to drive 20 min. These customers that work in the area have to eat here. But if you are trying to go out to eat a nice decent dinner with your family? Pass. This place is set up to serve regulars who know whats on the menu and don't care about being served like a regular restaurant. Order your food at the register when you walk in and grab a cup to fill up at the fountain. It's a very low class fancy Taco Bell.

    Excellent. Lunch platter of mini chicken burrito and tortilla soup was delicious and plentiful. Lunch buddy's chicken quesadilla was also delicious. Wait staff was very helpful and courteous. I thought the chips could have used a bit more salt though.

    Food overly salted. Over priced for the quality. The salsa Verde lacks flavor. I will not be rushing back. Table was also not bussed very well.

  • David S.

    The best Mexican place in town. My tip, order takeout if you can, because the dining area leaves a lot to be desired. It's cramped, loud and you're going to have to fight five other patrons once a table finally opens up. While this place lacks in ambiance, it more than makes up for it in excellent food.

    Ate dinner here recently, and was delighted with some aspects, but disappointed at others. Walked in, was handed a menu and after deliberation ordered at the counter. I kind of felt like I was at a fast food restaurant like Wendy's or Taco Bell. I was given a glass and was directed to the Soda machine like at McDonalds. We placed an order for four different main course items which included my cheese enchiladas, the wife's tacos, the daughters chicken everything tray, and the granddaughters cheese quesadilla and two orders of chips and salsa. I've eaten at dozens of Mexican Restaurants all over the country from Michigan to Texas and out of the good ol USA in Mexico, and this was only the second occasion I had where you paid extra for the chips and salsa (maybe because the salsa is very special). Taco Bell is the other place. I rate the main course meals as just above average, and the salsa (Mango & Pesto) above average. The chips themselves are well above average. They provided jalapeño's on a table beside the soda machine, and they were very tasty, and a welcome addition to the chips and salsa. The Carmel Suckers as an after meal treat were very good. The place was very clean, the workers very friendly, ample parking and the establishment easy to find. I was just disappointed in the fast food service and being charged for salsa and chips. Will we go back? Probably not. My $47 bill plus tip was a little high for fast food service.

    To start they have the best Mexican food in southwest PA and the best customer service! I've been a few times and everything I've had there has been delicious. Went there yesterday and ordered shrimp tacos (2). After we sat down an employee can up to me to inform me that they only had enough shrimp for one taco and apologized. They gave me the option of changing my order completely or having one shrimp taco and another type of taco. I choose to have one shrimp and one steak taco. I admit I was a little bummed but things happen. When I got my order the server apologized for not having been able to complete my order for 2 shrimp tacos. Both tacos were great! The cashier came by my table when we were finishing to apologize and gave me a gift certificate for an order of shrimp tacos. I was going to be coming back anyways but this shocked me. They went above and beyond what most restaurant would do. Can't wait to go back for more shrimp tacos!

    Stumbled upon this place thanks to Yelp while driving through. Well worth getting off the beaten path. Not your typical Mexican joint. Delish fried fish tacos with mango salsa, unbelievably big burritos and yummy chips and salsa.

  • Sierra M.

    Working so close to this place is simultaneously the best and worst thing that's ever happened to me. Best because I have fantastic food basically across the street every single day. Worst because I spend all of my very little extra money there.

  • Brittany G.

    I love this place!! Some of the things that others have complained about are what makes it awesome to me. The fact that I can order and pay before I get my food is a plus to me. I HATE being ready to go home and have to wait on my check. Then wait on the server to come and get my card, blah, blah. You get my drift. I don't mind getting my own drink either, and the food is delicious!! I'm not a huge Mexican food person, but I think about this food all of the time. Chips and guacamole are excellent. I have had the mini chicken chimichanga, which is far from mini, a chicken burrito and chicken enchiladas. (Anyone noticing a theme here?). I love, love, love their red sauce it isn't spicy, but it is so flavorful. It is my favorite thing about this place. The food here has a LOT of flavor, unlike many Mexican restaurants. To me most Mexican restaurants have food that all tastes the same (equally bland/greasy/bad). Not the case at Los Chiludos. Also have a good Margarita. Definitely one of my favorites!

    This place is so awesome. I had the fish tacos and wish I could eat them every night for dinner. We have also used them for catering and they do a wonderful job. You get quality food for the price. Great restaurant!!

    They moved to Southpointe! Upside: no longer hidden, plus plenty of parking; more seating, clean Downside: now in a plain-Jane suburban office park strip center. Authentic, reasonable (our dinner tab for 4 people was $44), and most of all-DELICIOUS. I've had their carnitas (pork) tacos and the Sopes (with chorizo). Love both, but if they have not sold out of Sopes, which they had on my first visit, I highly recommend them. Two Masa cakes smeared with thin layer of refried beans, them crumbled chorizo, cilantro, cheese. So addictive. I must have put my fork down 8 or 9 times. Random notes: you must purchase chips and salsa. Variety of excellent salsa to choose from. On entree, they only have mild or hot salsa choice. The hot one does not mess around! Seriously hot (for me). Mild is a verde, which I love. Service is fantastic. You order at counter, are given a number to put on the table, then servers will deliver to table.

    Returned to the scene of the crime...Oh Yeah...Guess not! They moved. Thought LC would have a little bigger place. Guess not! Not Really! Went late for LC since they close at 8, went about 7:15... all tables were full but you order at the counter, they give you a number and wait for a table. Was able to get a table before the food arrived, which actually took about 15 minutes. Very noisy. Took a bottle of wine, if you want wine glasses take your own. Several tables had wine. Mostly families or young couples. If your a group...forgetableit..to crowded. Two groups of about 8 came after us and left. Now to the food... Oh it is very good and not ur usual, this is high quality Mex.

    I was directed here by my fellow yelpers, once again I was not let down. Came here for lunch. First Impression was this place is packed and there is a lot of movement behind the counter watching the chef crank out peoples dishes. I walked up to the counter since I wasn't sure of the ordering protocol in this place but the lady was really nice and explained everything to me and I was also very happy about her being up front with me about how long it was taking to get food out. She said that today they are really busy and it may take 30 minutes to get your meal. Fine by us, I ordered some salsa and chip but since I had never tried any of their salsa she was kind enough to give me a half order of the ranchero salsa and the mango salsa. I thought both were very good but the mango salsa was more my speed. For my lunch I had the Carnitas platter which was a ton of food for lunch. Holy cow and only for $8. The pork was flavorful and I really enjoyed the tomatillo salsa that they put over the top of it, I mixed it all together to make sure each taco I made had an equal portion of the sauce mixed into it. The pinto beans were outstanding to, who would ever think pinto beans could be that good. But I was really impressed with the overall service at this place. We got our food in about 15 minutes as opposed to the 30 min. but I appreciate the honesty, and each person here was very helpful and answered my array of questions with patience. They seemed like they were all generally have an okay time. This place almost is what will take me back to the taco shops of the Southwest US. I think I will officially designate this as my go to Mexican joint in Pittsburgh. I will certainly be back. Owww!

    Very good, made from scratch food. Different than most mexican restaurants in that you order at the counter. Sort of fast-casual like Chipotle, but more authentic. Employees were all friendly and had great service. I will be going back!

    Best Mexican we've had outside of Chicago and New York since we left California. Who would expect it in a strip mall in an office park in a Pittsburgh suburb? We've basically given up, but a Yelp review from someone who had worked at Chicago's excellent Topolobampo convinced us to give it a shot. The salsa was based on chiles, not watery tomatoes. The tacos were on soft corn tortillas, with onions and cilantro. The steak tacos were good, but the carnitas were excellent. The chorizo burrito (served "wet" for a small upcharge) was flavorful, the red sauce complex. Worth a drive.

    I've lived in NYC, Philly and am out here in the little town of Canonsburg for work. Los Chiludos makes it all worth it! One of the best Mexican places on the East Coast. I've had their pulled pork - delicious! Perfectly cooked and seasoned. I just had one of their vegetarian dishes, spinach enchilladas, today... and yum! Bring your appetite... portions are generous and the prices are fair. If you come for lunch, be prepared for a crowd. Yet, service was great and the place is clean. Awesome, awesome!! I just wish I could take them back to Philly with me!

  • Ryan F.

    This is the second site I've been to that gave this place positive reviews. I don't understand how people enjoyed eating there. I guess given the other bad options for Mexican food in Canonsburg maybe people just haven't had anything that was decent. I have a lot of complaints about the place (all central to their awful food) but I'll just make this comment and leave it at that: if you have to drown your food in processed cheese, your food is no good. Any Mexican restaurant that uses cheez whiz...lots and lots and lots of cheez whiz....is not authentic. 8/3/2011 - In response to Tara's comment, I have tried the nachos and steak burrito. It may not have been Cheese Whiz, but the cheese on the nachos was poured on in vast quantities and was most certainly a processed cheese that made the nachos soggy and not edible. The burrito was acceptable at best and was extremely salty. I appreciate the offer to come back and I'm sure plenty of people enjoy your food, but it's not for me.

    I hate to give this place a good review because others will flock here. After hearing about this place for quite some time, I finally went there. Staff could not have been nicer, food was great and prices were cheap. We had the sopes. It was enough for two people who had previously chowed down on a ton of chips. Very good. Very authentic. We will be back for sure.

    I was introduced to carnitas many years ago by a client in San Diego and to this day I can't get enough if I know they are good. Here they are excellent along with everything else I tried. This is for sure a hole in the wall that needs to be tried! Spicy Spicy!

    This is a fantastic place. My kiddo has food allergies and they totally cooperate with her special needs. The burritos are huge, chimmichangas cheesy, and guacamole with mango salsa is great! Everything valued for their fresh foods!

  • Dewey V.

    Excellent food made fresh and with care in an open kitchen. The prices on the menu seem high but when you see the quantity of food you get you won't feel ripped off. I think a burrito is almost 2 pounds.

  • Renee R.

    Parking can suck, but it's worth it for the service and the food. Since moving to PA from CA, finding good Mexican food has been an uphill battle. Now that we know about Los Chiludos, we're thrilled! Order at the counter, get your food quickly (a good choice for lunch if you have an hour), and have enough food left for lunch the next day. Everything's good, but I recommend the carnitas platter!

  • Natalie K.

    Great Mexican food...actually, really the best Mexican I've had in Pittsburgh. The fish tacos are to die for, the pork tacos (carnitas) are wonderful. It's in a strange location now, but who cares when you are looking for some great Mexican, right? Super friendly, very clean, superb food!

    In recent years I have become a fan of mexican food, mainly at the hands of a small restaurant in Washington, Pa by the name of Old Mexico. I used to think that no place in the tri-state area compared to this place and I would make weekly visits to make sure I got my mexican fix. On a friends recommendation, I decided to try Los Chiludos in my own backyard of Canonsburg. Man, was I surprised! A husband and wife team prepare all the meals fresh, and from scratch. Each meal is prepared how you like it and the portions are huge. This is, by far, the best mexican food on this side of the state. No matter what you get, you will be satisified with the results and will be coming back for more. I am a regular now, just about every saturday afternoon my girlfriend and I go there and try to order something different each time so we can sample the entire menu, and nothing has disappointed us!

    Not bad for lunch but try to not bring children. We ordered food and then was told they only had one highchair and had to wait 35 min for the highchair. By then are food was cold and we wanted to kill each other because our son was ready to leave.

Mexican Cuisine

If you enjoy Taco Tuesday, then you have officially fallen in love with the Mexican Food. The main grain of Mexican cuisine is maize. Also known as corn, maize is grown for the past 9000 years after the crop was discovered by the people in Mayan civilization. Mexican empire flourished when they started growing beans, tomatoes, chili pepper, sweet potato and cactus. Till this date these ingredients are used in cooking authentic Mexican dishes and drinks.

Great use of spices, fresh chili pepper dishes like fajitas, tortilla chips, corn chips, salsa, chimichangas, burritos, nachos and quesadillas are invented in America. But when you are looking for authentic Mexican food then you must find a restaurant in the city that serves Rajas con Queso, Garbanzo in a Guajillo Chile Sauce, Pork Filled Chiles Rellenos, Chiles en Nogada, Molcajete Salsa, Pico de Gallo and Frijoles de la Olla. An eye-opening fact – Mexican don't like their food hot. They use fresh chili and other spices to create a flavor that lingers in your mouth.

Mexican food is great for those who are Gluten Intolerant as they use Corn instead of wheat in most of their dishes. Also, you can easily find many beans based Mexican dishes. Another dish which didn't get similar glory as tacos or nachos is the Mexican hot chocolate. If you love something hot on a chilly day, then go for Mexican Hot Chocolate. On merry days, you can enjoy the authentic Mexican Drinks like Tequila, Mezcal, Tecuí, Sotol, Bacanora, Charanda, Posh O Pox, Puebla and Pulque. Mexican Cuisine is for people who enjoy strong drinks and hearty meals.
