Average food, average service, average score.

We visited Chiquito's yesterday evening and didn't leave with an overwhelming sense of satisfaction. The starters were disappointing with one of them decidedly lacking in pulled pork. From reading other reviews, this appears to be a recurring theme. The main courses were reasonable but nothing to... read more

Thanks so much to the lovely James for being so cheerful and friendly when serving us. The steaks we had were cooked to perfection as was everything else. The seating was comfortable a small booth for two just perfect for our anniversary meal. Everything that passed us was piping hot and looked delicious. The menu is extensive with loads to... More

Visited this restaurant 17 August for lunch. Santa Fe burrito very nice and liked the addition of three dipping dishes for tortilla chips. Just one little blip - the guacamole was quite bland. The crispy fried Haloumi with cranberry dip was very nice. Finished off with a Tequila Sunrise Cocktail. Staff very pleasant. Would I visit again..... Yes..

Went there for lunch. food came out within 15 minutes as advertised. Very tasty too. Our only problem was we couldnt find a smile in the face of waiters there the day we went to dine. Our experience would have been best if they had made us feel welcome to their restaurant. Otherwise quite good.

I've been here many times and always enjoyed the pulled pork wrap. Today however was terrible. The wrap was oozing greasy liquid and on further investigation found very little pulled pork and 2 huge lumps of fatty gristle. I couldn't eat anything on my plate. I don't think I'll ever be able to eat there. Gave me the boke!!! Really... More

We were seated by a very nice young man. Drinks were quickly received. We ordered from the lunch menu and had starters of garlic bread and nachos. Both were ok. Our mains arrived and instead of skin on fries we got overcooked frozen chips. The waitress said that they were called skin on fries and wandered off to serve someone... More

Ample parking in the mall, union square bus terminal make it easy to get to. We were seated quickly and had a table good for people watching. Service was very slow and getting the bill even slower. The food was average but at the better end of this scale. I like Mexican flavours having lived in that neck of the... More

It was very rubbish. Beer was rubbish, flat. Food was average, as was the service. Will never visit again, or recommend.

Having ordered the tiger prawn skewers, I was shocked to be presented with 2 skewers with about 4 normal sized prawns on each stick! These were totally overcooked rubber, nothing juicy about it! It came presented a bed of onions and a few small slices of pepper! Totally overpriced at £15.95! Safe to say I will not be back!
