Stopped by here after a plane journey back from Cyprus, was a well needed rest and lunch after a 6 hour journey! The man who served us, appeared to be the manager, with glasses, was extremely friendly and positive, had a great attitude. Brought us some chilli popcorn to get us going as he put it and was great throughout... More

Generally choose this restaurant, if we're in Bas Vegas to watch a film. It's pretty standard Tex Mex, but it always does the job. The Fajitas are excellent (don't touch the dish!!!!), but there's a nicely varied menu. Prices are ok; although we generally add to the bill by partaking of the wine. The all-important friendly staff are always up... More

We like the faitijas, but believe you should get more than a little pot of salsa, sour cream and cheese to go in a wrap. To be then be charged extra for another little pot seems a rip of to me for something that should be part of the meal in the first place. A shame as the food is... More

Hubby and I decided to go out to dinner. He's not overly fond of Mexican food but Chiquito's had room for us so in we went. Server was friendly and brought our drinks quickly. Lots of ice in the coke so say if you only like a couple of blocks. Merlot was nice. Took our order and garlic bread arrived... More

Me and my boyfriend tried out this place recently on a week night. We found the food to be nice, our server was nice and friendly.... Absolutely would come back. The manager (I think) seemed flappy and a weird smell when he walked past. Afterwards we grabbed a drink at the bar after and the lady serving was very nice... More

After loving this restaurant when it first opened, we raved about it to friends and family. We went on a weekday evening so wasn't remotely busy, food was overcooked, or cold. They leave your food waiting getting cold whilst other members of the party dishes were being cooked. Took from the moment we got in to receiving our meals which... More

The food has always been great, the service can be anything from poor, to ok, has never been good! But if your not in a rush, and your not easily wound up, or impatient, the food is worth it
