Folks over in Fairfax finally have a new restaurant to enjoy! According to the official Facebook page, Chilangos Mexican Restaurant began welcoming customers this week.

Chilangos Mexican Restaurant is located right next to the Dairy Queen in Fairfax at 515 Williams Blvd. The new eatery has taken over the building that was once home to Charlie’s Restaurant, and it appears that the space has received a bit of a makeover these past few months.

Since opening on Monday, November 15th, the new restaurant is already getting some positive reviews on Facebook. A comment from Megan Dvorak Burns reads, "DELICIOUS! HUGE portions! We DEFINITELY will be back." Another Facebook user named Karen Elizabeth wrote, "EXCELLENT FOOD! Mike was kicking ass for how busy it was! So excited this place is in the neighborhood!"

Chilangos Mexican Restaurant is open for both dine-in and carryout. The hours listed online are Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. The restaurant hasn't posted their menu online yet, but Joe Sample included some photos of it in his latest Facebook post! if you want to place an order, you can call 319-357-8038.

Chilangos is one of several Mexican restaurants that have recently opened here in Eastern Iowa. Just last week we told you that Taco Depot III is finally open in the former Hardee's at 35 Miller Ave SW in Cedar Rapids, and a new place called Alebrije Mexican Restaurant has officially opened at 401 S Linn St in Iowa City. There is certainly no shortage of delicious Mexican food, no matter what city you're in!
