The food here has never wowed me. I'll be content to eat here, I enjoy the Bandito Burrito Burger, but there are other places in Union Square I would rather eat in. A lot of the places owned by the Restaurant Group are average.

We went for a snack - had the sharing nachos platter which was very tasty. We also had cheesecake which was delicious. It was quite when we went and the music was a bit loud. The waiter was extremely polite and attentive. I would definitely go back.

In Union Square and decided to pop in here - had heard it was a nice place. It was nice, but not fantastic. A very busy place and not really enough staff to make it a great place. Although staff very pleasant they were run off their feet. Meal was okay, place is convenient and there is a quick turnover... More

After hearing people rave about the place we thought we would give it a try. It was overpriced, the portions were small and the food was just ok. We had to ask for a dairy free alternative for our daughter - the kitchen didn't seem impressed but offered her corn tortillas. When it arrived it came with cheese and sour... More

I have visited this restaurant twice now. Both times I didn't choose it but it is popular due to it's convenient location within Union Square. Good parking and very central. I'll never go here out of my own choice. I don't remember what I had the first visit (not very memorable). The second time I ordered the Chimichanga. It was... More

We came here as I hadn't been to Chiquto in years! I didn't know there was one in Aberdeen. We arrived just after 4pm, so it wasn't busy. We were seated immediately and drinks came shortly afterwards along with a small dish of popcorn. We decided not to order a starter, so I ordered a Chicken Chimichunga and my boyfriend... More

Four of us went here for dinner and had an enjoyable evening. The restaurant was nearly full and had a good atmosphere. We got our drinks ordered quickly, a short time later we ordered our food, it was all very efficient and, for us, perfectly timed. When the food came, our steak, burger and fajitas were perfect however the tacos... More

Sat at a sticky table . When our drinks came , £4 each , half the glass was ice. When food came my chips were still frozen in the middle and had no real colour about them , my burger was more like a meatball in a bun , sent it back and it came back edible. When I lifted... More
