happening busy establishment

A little haven behind the pub in a walled garden that lets you escape the hustle and bustle of the Sydney CBD for a few moments. It has Mexican fare to select from a modest menu. Place is very busy and you need to be quick to get a seat. Food delivery can be a bit slow, but it was... read more

Didn't actually realize the Slip Inn had the Mexican Restaurant within, but was pretty impressed with it. Still has the normal area with live music, and the beer garden out the back is great if you can get a table. (all booked out when we were there). Had dinner and drinks inside and it was still really great. Good food... More

We tried this place tonight, live close by. We had 2 tacos, served luke warm on cardboard, tasteless. Followed by the quasadilla served on cardboard, a tiny piece of flat bread with some cheese and sausage. Then came a hot dog, $12 you're kidding, was expecting a gourmet dog, this thing was off. Avoid at all costs

We had a guest out from Singapore for work so we decided to take him out for a casual team lunch. We have a number of vegetarians in our team so we thought Mexican should offer some options and on the recommendation of one of our team we head off to El Loco at Slip Inn (not the main one... More

Great funky food with a real twist - The place can get crowded at times with limited places to sit down

I love this eclectic Mexican menu with its fusion of flavours. The food is great. It's reasonably priced. Quick service. You must try the Jalapeño margarita. Yum!!! The pork taco and the shrimp taco are two of my favourites. The atmosphere is fun - especially weekends. The music is great. I also enjoy catching a bite here in a Saturday... More

Went for a weeknight dinner and drink. Lovely outdoor beer garden but for a Mexican restaurant not to have rice or beans as an alternative to chips is inexcusable. Half of the Mexican cuisine is based on rice and beans! In addition, my order was lost for about half an hour and was only salvaged after talking to three different... More
