This was a family birthday group of 9.Food took an hour to come out. The beef in the enchiladas was dry and over hot. My partners double cooked beans were so hot they were steaming and were so mushy that they seemed as if they were cooked more then twice! £35.00 two main meals and two beers for my partner... More

Went on a busy Saturday night, service was fine, but annoyed to find absolutely no trace of alcohol in my banana daiquiri...makes you feel cheated. The food was very disappointing and there was approx 3 bits of chicken in my enchilada, with huge slop of refried beans and over sized helping of rice, I was not fooled!

We had decided to go out for a meal while on holiday in Paignton. There were 5 adults and a 1 year old, we found the place by accident but were drawn in by the menu and colourful fun decor. It was empty when we went in, by the time we had left it was very busy and added to... More

We've been to Jingles twice now. I think the food is excellent here, a real Tex-Mex and very tasty. I had BBQ wings, ribs, chips and onion rings it was all delicious. We were sat however in a slighty precarious position at the top of a few stairs, I was with my mother and she was sat right on the... More

My boyfriend and I had seen this place the night before, when we went to the Italian over the road. We thought it looked interesting and Mexican is one of my favourites. So, the next night we went down about the same time, the door was open with no sign out or anything like that, and asked for a table... More

After our order was taken the whole experience went downhill. We waited quite some time for our nachos starter which the waitress bought out with someone else main course that I had to convince her wasn't ours. The nachos were fine. We received our mains which I didn't find to my satisfaction. I couldn't tell anyone about this as no... More

It's in a good location. The food is pretty good wholesome mexican food. Large portions, tasty and overall very pleasing. It was really busy when we went. But the service was very good. Staff were friendly and there was a positive atmosphere. If your hungry and fancy mexican than this is your place!

First ate here on our visit to Torquay in October 2013 and very impressed so without hesitation booked again for our February 2014 visit and will be returning again the end of November. Excellent value, quality and huge portions. Not a bad word to say. Normally a party of 6 of us but there will be 8 of us on... More

Another visit to our favourite restaurant in Torquay. As usual the service was very pleasant, attentive but not over fussy giving plenty of time to enjoy each course. The food this visit was exceptional and guarantees a return visit very soon. Recommend to anyone, great value for money.

Found this restaurant on our recent visit to Torquay. We hadn't booked a table but the staff said we could sit at the one in the window as long as we had finished by 8o'clock which was fine with us. The atmosphere was very nice and decorated brightly as you would imagine a mexican restaurant to be. The staff were... More
