Love the mole chicken enchiladas at Chico’s Cantina!

We love the Mexican cuisine at Chico’s Cantina on Stock Island. Located at 5230 U.S. 1, just across the Cow Key Channel Bridge from Key West, dining at Chico’s is well worth the short trip.

Family owned and operated since 1984, Chico’s seasoned and friendly staff always makes us feel more than welcome. We love having our favorite beverages, along with a generous serving of hot tortilla chips and fresh salsa, placed before us as soon as we settle in. Decorated with a delightful mix of south of the border kitsch and old Key West charm, the covered outdoor patio is the perfect spot to relax with friends and family.

Famous for their locally caught fish tacos, Chico’s combines fresh ingredients to create a wonderful array of savory Mexican appetizers and entrees. I am usually torn between the delicious seafood enchiladas and the special mole chicken enchiladas. The fresh taco salad and the ground beef chimichanga top Dean’s list. Dean’s mom, Kathleen, is partial to both the cheese crisp and the deluxe chicken tacos. Chico’s tempting daily specials and generous menu selections keep us coming back for more.

Hands down, Chico’s Cantina serves the best Mexican cuisine in Key West.
