A Classic Mexican Menu
Simple and to the point, The Chayo Restaurant serves up the best of Mexican classics. From nachos to burritos, the menu is full of familiar favorites and regional specialties. Take a look at the traditional Mexican flavors heading your way in this review of the Chayo menu.
The Menus at Chayo Mexican Kitchen
A large list of appetizers starts off the menu at Chayo. Known for its lively atmosphere, the large selection of shareables is perfect for bigger parties and groups.
You’ll see everything from nachos and Baja Shrimp Ceviche to Queso Dip and Street Corn. I recommend trying out the Chayo Quesadilla and adding some chorizo for an extra price to give it that savory flavor. Prices for apps range anywhere from $5 to $15.
Soups and Salads
The Caesar Salad is the only odd man out in this section of the Chayo menu. You can, however, add some chicken, salmon, shrimp, or steak to your salad for a bit of an upgrade. Otherwise, it’s fresh Mexican ingredients that fill the other selections. Menudo, Tortilla Soup, and Chayo Salad are packed with delicious Mexican flavors from cilantro, tortilla strips, avocado, and black beans.
All the burritos on the Chayo menu are covered in a special sauce and a bit of sour cream to give it that authentic Mexican burrito taste. The Chicken option comes with jack cheese and a red Fresno sauce while the Carne Asada has caramelized onions, refried beans, and Mexican red rice.
Your last option is the Grilled Shrimp which comes with anaheim green chili sauce for a completely unique taste compared to the first two. The burritos are a bit more expensive at $21.25 for the Carne Asada and $20.25 for the other two.
The smoking stars of any Mexican menu, fajitas on Chayo’s menu come with refried beans, Mexican rice, and your choice of flour or corn tortillas.
The options are simple: Carne Asada, Grilled Shrimp, or Spiced Chicken. All of them are served with the same sides and are prepared with the same grilled smoky flavors you can expect from fajitas. It’s a show when served table-side and none of your options are a disappointment. Prices are $24.25 for the chicken, $26.25 for the shrimp, and $27.25 for the carne asada.
Burgers and Sandwiches
If you are trying one dish from the burgers and sandwiches section the Mexican Philly Cheesesteak should be it. The bell peppers, onions, jalapenos, Mexican cheese, and chipotle mayo make it worth the trip to Chayo’s. The Bacon Cheeseburger and Grilled Chicken Club are good in their own right with Mexican flavors thrown in to mix up the standards. Prices range from $13 – $16.
You get a pretty standard set of options for tacos but the flavor is anything but standard. Chicken, Carne Asada, Al Pastor, and Shrimp are your options and each one is paired perfectly with unique ingredients. From cotija cheese and pickled vegetables to molcajete salsa and roasted pineapple, the flavors are authentically Mexican and worth a try at Chayo’s.
What you’re probably going to be talking about as you walk out of the restaurant and onto the strip are the signature entrees at Chayo’s. Chicken A La Veracruzana is a refined dish with chicken, white wine, capers, and olives. You can even substitute salmon for an extra charge.
The sweet corn enchiladas are unique in flavor but come with classic ingredients like green peppers, pico de Gallo, and Mexican cheese. You can also get more traditional Green Chicken Enchiladas, which come with the anaheim green chili sauce that really makes up the flavor.
Traditional Mexican desserts sweeten up the final course of your Chayo food journey. Churros Rellenos take your old school churros and upgrade them to the 21st century. The new and improved versions come stuffed with dulce de leche, strawberry, and vanilla cream.
Flan is what you’ll find at local Mexican restaurants and you won’t be disappointed here. It’s the classic flavor and texture of flan that everyone loves with a bit of fresh berries to top it off.
The bread pudding is the closest to an American dessert but the dulce de leche whipped cream still adds a southern twist.
Drinks & Cocktails
The well never runs dry at Chayo’s with its huge selection of margaritas and cocktails. Every kind of margarita you can think of is on this menu from Watermelon Jalapeno to Smoldering Passion Fruit and Pineapple Habanero Margarita.
The cocktails are no different with 10 different options to select from. Just pick your choice of spirit and Chayo has you covered like the Chayo Paloma or Oaxacan Cherry Mule.
