Went here on a Saturday early evening for a bite to eat before a night out. Food was ok but nothing special, my Tacos were hot but the chips were cold. I was seated with a Till/work station behind me and any time someone used it it banged against the back of my chair, informed our server and they just... More

We came here as a family without booking but the staff found us a table within 5 mins. The food was really good, the waitress was very attentive although presumably because they were busy we were waiting quite a long time between courses.

The Festival Leisure park in Basildon (known locally as Bas Vegas) is a collection of chain restaurant branches, along with a couple of buffet places. Chiquito is one of the better ones, in my opinion. We've been here a few times and not had a bad meal yet. The food here is good and it's well prepared and presented and... More

decided to take my sister here for a birthday breakfast, bad mistake! 45 minute wait for 2 omelettes! Then the waitress made a snide remark about the tip we gave her! I then proceeded to tell her she was lucky she recieved anything. Another table also complained about the wait for their food. Omelette was dry..........so was the whole experience!

Went in for a couple of drinks after work, looked at the menu and thought i'd try what sounded like a tasty veggie volcano burger. Food came and was as nice as it sounded, really tasty. Nice beer choice on tap as well. I'd recommend this place to anyone wanting some good quality food in a nice atmosphere.

We got caught out at lunchtime last Sunday shopping with our two daughters and popped in to Chiquitos for a treat lunch. After waiting 15 mins, we received our drinks orders. Daughters fancied the children's rainbow cocktail thing which turned up looking lovely but was basically just a rainbow coloured slushy for £2.75 and completely full of ice!. We waited... More

Waited 30mins for a salad, chilli and a starter. Employee wearing what looked like her pajama top. Food looked and tasted like it had been sitting around. Poor attempt at basic dishes A bit on the tight side Shocking overall. ... Went to MacDonald's after.
