Quick & satisfactory

We visited as we had an entertainment book voucher. Planning to go to the movies afterwards & as promised our meals came our super quick. Meals were average, nothing overly exciting. We're big fans of mexican food, so have higher standards

Service, price, quality and quantity were excellent. We had the San Antonio nachos and made our own Fajitas and shared a couple of litres of the Montezuma's special Sangria. Nick the owner seemed to be everywhere during the night as he made all customers feel important.

Unfortunately the food we had was dry and tasteless I don't know if it was just what we ordered but I'm pretty sure fajitas should be nailed in the kitchen by now.
