great food, great service burgers were awesome - but even this was exceeded by the deliciousness of the sweet potato fries - yum yum yum

I took a couple of visitors here and had one of them hacking up the food. Pulled pork and chicken that tasted of fish. The other dishes we had were mediocre at best. Stay away if you like good quality food.

It's not really Mexican food. It's fast food with a Mexican theme. The meat is bland in flavour really. I ordered the chimichanga. The waitress reacted strangely when I asked to substitute the chips for either vegetables or a salad. What I received was a poor bowl of iceberg lettuce leaves and a couple of tomatoes. Waiting staff otherwise were... More

Myself and 2 friends ate here, the food was delicious and a good price. I had a burger in a bun with chips and salad. Wine was great. Could not fault it.

Popped in for an early dinner. The greeting and service were very good. We ordered a Marguerita - this arrived overflowing with ice and that, indeed, seemed to be all that was in it. Our starter, a sharing plate, was very tasty. My husband had two sizzling skewers with fries as a main. This was all OK. I ordered cod... More

First thing first. ITS NOT MEXICAN. Very friendly staff (even though I found weird beeing asked straight away if we came here with hangover?) and decent serving time (sunday lunch - place almost empty). Food is typical restaurant chain, cook from frozen, no heart/soul affair. My southern fried chicken with pulled pork will probably haunt me for quite a while... More

Love this place - we always take our children there for a great family meal. The steak and philly sandwich is to die for. Highly recommend this popular eating spot in Aberdeen.

Good food when it eventually arrived after an hours wait. Only 3of us and ordered 3 starters and 2 mains to arrive together but the mains came first? Waitress did apologise and we weren't in a hurry so it was fine.

Ate here last night and astonished at how a mexican can make dishes that are so tasteless. I've eaten at chiquito's elsewhere a good few times and love the Acapulco chicken fajitas. Usually really tasty but last night they tasted of nothing. Even the accompanying salsa and guacamole failed to liven the dish up. Restaurant was busy being a saturday... More
