Quick, delicious big burritos

For a fast yet really good burrito, enchilada, nachos, quesadilla.... Nana Mexico always serves a flavour filled lunch, add to that some hot sauce and It takes it up to heavenly. Service is always good, there is seating upstairs so don't get put off by the initial size as you go in.

Dont be put off by the queues, the staff are quick, friendly and efficient. There is seating upstairs as well as a few seats downstairs. Why go to the fast food outlets that always leave you hungry for more when you can have a big burrito packed with your choice of filling. Not the cheapest at £5.99 but nice as... More

Having never eaten at a takeaway mexican before I was very happy with my meal. You watch them make the food infront of you, a very 'Subway,' -like experience, and I can't praise them enough. The food was beautiful, hot and prepared fast, perfect for the hungry shopper or (as on the next table to us) the hungover student.

Easily the worst take-away experience EVER - delivered over an hour and a half late. The driver had got lost - incompetent! On arrival, the food was cold, bland and all-round disappointing. I would strongly advise against ordering take-out from them - my housemate is experiencing the same unreasonable delay right now - which prompted me to write this review.... More

My quesadilla contained more gristle and fat than actual meat; when we were queuing to pay we were practically pressed against the wall in the tiny hallway; and when we finally did pay we were charged for the people in front of us' meal. There are far better, tastier places to eat in cambridge, don't waste your time here!

The food at Nanna Mexico is reliably great - I'd particularly recommend the lamb barbacoa, and the guacamole is perhaps the best I've ever had. The horchata is also definitely worth a try!

Last night had stale chips, indifferent salsa, and ok burritto - soggy. A shame, because they used to have reasonably priced good food. Not so much now.
