No Frills, But Good Mexican Food in Downtown Nanaimo

Not a fancy restaurant, but really good Mexican food. Read their Menu on the blackboard, place your order at the cash counter, choose a seat (counter, inside tables, outdoor patio), and wait for your food. Lots of choices and degrees of spiciness; they serve alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages... read more

I love this place, never been disappointed and also love how you can choose what level of spicy you want Out of 10 I like 7. Always fresh and environment is casual. This place is always busy!

We stumbled upon this place and found one of the best Mexican restaurants ive ever been to. The meals are huge! I couldn't even come close to eating all my food.

This Delicado's looks like a little hole in the wall, but it's really good. It's my daughter's favourite restaurant for the wraps, and she loved the kids cheese triangles when she was little. The wraps are fantastic, and can be customized to your spice preference. I like it super-mild, which they will do. They have spice levels up to what... More

I eat gluten free and dairy free and had been told to try Delicado's as they have many items on their menu that apparently meet my dietary preferences. I first tried Delicados in the Old City Quarter and although the staff helped me choose an item I could eat, I was disappointed in the lack of flavour and the portion... More

Great spot to grab a quick wrap or meal for lunch or dinner. You can eat in and enjoy a beer or pop, or you can grab something as takeout and enjoy a picnic. The food is high quality, huge portions and well priced. Also a good selection of vegan options.

Delicado's used to be my favorite for take-out lunch. Recently though their prices have gone up and their portions have gone down. It is now 9.00 for a wrap that I can literally wrap my hand around and have my finger touch my thumb.
