A combo plate includes a red or green enchilada, taco, chile, rice, and beans, available with or without a chile relleno (shown with).  Chope's offers only the freshest food available, all made to order.  Always the best tasting you'll ever have!

Chope's Bar is popular with the biker crowd.  If the restaurant is too crowded, you can order food over here.
