It's all about the food!

Service and food very, very good if a little overpriced. If you like Mexican cuisine, you'll love this place - great Chilli, but there's much more than that!

We loved this place last time we visited Torquay, although perhaps we were all a bit full before we arrived this time, because there was a lot of half empty plates by the end of our meal. It didn't help that my youngest son fell asleep before he built his own burrito. A nice idea, but an unused one unfortunately.... More

Tex mex food that is well cooked and well presented. We always visit when we come to Torquay and still enjoy the high quality food here. Huge range on the menu from traditional Mexican burritos, enchiladas etc to steaks and burgers. Good selection of kids meals too. The nachos are fab but be warned the portions are very generous!

I do like Jingles, Mexican food and their portion size, I feel the prices were a bit too high, with cheaper options also available, the décor could do with something less brash ... but I suppose it is a nice enough place

I visited this in August 2015 (visited this last year in August 2014) and found it quiet compared to previous year when it was buzzing with people. The sangria at £10.95 is a huge jug and we had at least six glasses of sangria from it so well worth ordering. We had starters of BBQ Duck Quesadillas and Acapulco Prawns... More

The massively varied menu will leave you spoilt for choice. A mixture of Mexican, the Deep South and choice cuts from the grill. We had a mixture on our table of jambalaya, chimichangas, Swamp & Turf and the house speciality chicken gordita. All the dishes were very nice and the steak was cooked to perfection. The Gordita was very spicy... More

Ate here on a busy night. Both had steak, cooked as requested but they weren't anything special. Portion sizes are massive, it seems like they're going for quantity over quality.

Great restaurant, great food and great staff. Be aware that the portions here are massive, we had the Nacho's starter for two and that would have been enough. We did make a dent in our main courses as well though, definitely no room for dessert though!! Will definitely return if we go back to Torquay.

We visited last Thursday night. It's a lovely place. It reminded us of a mexican restaurant in Benalmadena, Costa Del Sol. Portions are massive. 1 chimichanga is enough for two!!!! Our son had 12oz rib steak and said it was the best he's ever eaten. Friendly attentive staff. Will be going again next time we visit Torquay.
