St. Louis, MO 63104
Riverfront Times' Description
This Mexican restaurant rose from the ruins of perennial Soulard dive Mike & Min's, but it wasn't a bad trade-off at all. Chava's menu keeps things short and to the point: tacos, a fajita platter, a burrito, an enchilada, a tostada, etc. The fajita platter and its close appetizer cousins (fajita quesadilla and fajita nachos) are sizzling-steak standouts, as are tacos de Guadalajara, a pair of flash-fried flour tortillas clamped around seasoned ground beef, lettuce, tomato, onion and a clever blend of grated Monterey and Parmesan cheeses. Specify a fresh-fruit margarita and choose from ten different flavors.

You can take To-Go margaritas!
Great Mexican place in the heart of Soulard...I personally like the fish tacos and the fajita tacos, but El Mireko is their specialty. Don't want to miss out on that queso!
Do yourself a favor and hit up the steak fajita nachos. The bartender recommended extra cheese. I do the same.
