Chilitos has Moved to a Bigger Location

Suga visited Chilitos’ expanded Restaurant at 88 Hope Road across from Coldwell Bankers last Saturday on New Year’s Eve at about 5pm. It’s just up the road from where they used to be with a much bigger space and more comfortable seating. They still have that vintage-rustic Mexican décor with a modern twist. I love those new light bulb fixtures that have been going up at the new joints around Kingston.

The menu is pretty much the same and the quality of the food is still good with mediocre service. Pleasant staff but I thought 25 minutes was too long a wait for a Mini Nacho Supreme ($600JMD incl. tx), Gorditas (2 Chicken & 1 Beef for $1050JMD incl. tx) and a Burrito ($1000JMD incl. tx). The Mini Nacho Supreme should have come out quickly or we should have been asked if we would have liked that before the main. The Restaurant was not full either.

My husband and I have been pretty much ordering the same thing from them for years and I remember getting served within 5 to 10 minutes. Our food was made right infront of our eyes. I still prefer that method. I suppose as years went by with expansion and more customers they saw a need for a change, which I don’t mind but more speed in service is required. The waiters assigned to each table also need to be attentive in reassuring us the food will soon be ready and also asking if we would like anything else or if everything is ok.

They have their usual Taco Tuesdays as well as Margarita Mondays and Burrito Fridays with various specials.

So go check out Chilitos at their new home on Hope Road. Lovely setting for going out on a date or for outings with friends and family. If the wait is a little long have some $300 beers while you do.
