Chillin’ at Chelino’s

Chelino’s creates a homey atmosphere for hearty Mexican fare.

Restaurant Reviews

Carol Smaglinski
Soaking wet (What, was that rain?), we opened the door of the Chelino’s on 50th near MacArthur and were delighted to see the colorful, bright orange interior transporting us right to the heart of Mexico. Who knew Mexico was this close?

Father knows fire

Big Daddy offers down-home hickory-smoked barbecue in a real roadhouse.

Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill
Big Daddy’s Smoke House Bar-B-Que has ricks of split hickory stacked outside, front and back. Inside the restaurant, a robust and permanent aroma of smoke leaves lingers. No doubt this place lives up to its name.

What’s not so good: The goofy decorations.
Tips: Be sure to ask for the Crabtown Trash when your waitress first comes by, as it sometimes sells out.
