Are you kidding me? Since when is a hot dog Mexican food? Sat there for 15 minutes- no one so much as took my drink order so I walked out. Dirty. Do not bother.

Cheap mexican style offerings, but very small serving for the price and a slightly different interpretation to other mexican restaurants. Very loud music made it hard to hold a conversation - which saved spending too much time complaining about the $7.75 schooners of beer.

Now known as El Loco, I've been here a few times with work colleagues because it's conveniently across the road from the office. The food is pretty good. The fish torta especially is really tasty.

On reflection, we should have got up and walked out of this venue. A group of 6 friends agreed to meet here for a catch up dinner at El Loco on a Thursday evening after work. There were only 4 other tables with guests, which is not busy for a large venue. After we ordered our drinks and sat down... More

I used to love this place and wanted to show it to a friend on Saturday night. Bad idea. Apparently there was a private event in the Mexican garden (which we had no idea about). We were pushed up the stairs by a furious security guy shouting at us to "go back to where we came from". We were in... More

The outdoor garden is nice to sit in and have a drink and so on. Had the $33 deal - the trout. It said 400 gms - and I thought "yum" - but it turned out to be a whole trout. So watch out for that! Otherwise good value (drinks are $7.50 for a schooner); there was a DJ and... More

Great place to hang out.... but not a big fan of the new Mexican kitchen. Much prefer the previous Thai kitchen! But overall, the place is still great for drinks... outdoor and indoor... casual meet up after work, close to everywhere.
