Friday lunch time, prime time for food establishments, particularly those located on the bustling Lisburn Road. As such, we went early to miss the rush. It's Burrito Firday and we arrive at Mex at 12.50. Only one person in front of us in the queue, result, back to the offce in double quick time (or so we thought!). 1.10pm, a... More

Ordered the nachos, and all that turned up was nachos with chicken and a little sprinkle of tomatoes. When I FINALY got through to the restaurant, the girl on the phone was so rude, did not apologise and tried to tell me that's what I ordered! After arguing with her and telling her what was supposed to be in it,... More

I'm a big fan of Mexican food, I make it at home and I eat very regularly in Belfast's other (excellent) Mexican restaurants, Chalcos and Boojum, so you can imagine my delight when I fould out a new mexican burrito bar called Mex was opening just opposite my work on the Lisburn Road. That delight quickly turned to disappointment when... More

I love Boojum, so was excited to give Mex Burrito Bar a go. However, unfortunately it seems they are attempting to replicate Boojum and failing as the food is pretty sloppy in comparison and when we were in the rubbish hadn't been cleared of the tables so it looked a bit dirty. The staff were nice enough, but of you... More

I have eaten here 5 times. No problems first or second, infact it was my first ever burrito and it blew me away...delish!This is where the positives end. Third and fourth burritos not the same as previous, bland and dry. Staff relaxed enough to finish sending a text before serving me. The girl was polite to me but using your... More

Just another business cashing in on Belfast's Burrito craze... the food wasn't bad, but the burrrito was poorly put together and i also got some tortilla chips that were pretty expensive and not very nice or done correctly. The owner needs to check out their competition to see what they're doing right and get his staff trained to a reasonable... More

I placed an order for delivery to see what it was like. My order came 40 minutes later, was stone cold, and was also incorrect. A chicken fajita had no chicken. I would never recommend this place, and ended up ordering something else, and throwing this meal into the bin.

Not bad burritos with good choice of sauces, however there was so much crammed into my burrito that I could barely eat it! I had a shredded beef burrito but it was so full and falling apart i could barely eat it without it spilling everywhere! My only real complaint was that the guy who served me wasn't particularly friendly,... More
