Came in for a casual lunch and we weren't disappointed. We decided to try something different to our usual Fajita order - the fella had Quesadilla and I chose the Grilled Corn & Chicken salad. Both were perfectly cooked and presented and neither of us could finish the meals, so generous were their size! Good service as we have come... More

I felt the food lacked a bit of the punch I was looking for and was a bit over priced (~$20 for just a burrito). Glad they had hot sauce at the table. Service was very good, and nice ambient inside.

Flying burrito brothers is me and my partners favourite! Been here so many times! Food is always above and beyond, the chicken flying burrito, the fish starter, the mini tacos, and the cheesecake are amongst our must gets! Plus very good with drinks. Staff are very attentive and they always have ample staff for the amount of diners. Cannot recommend... More

We had a large group booking which was poorly handled. Not enough seats, even though it had been booked well in advance. Food was disappointing, meat was dry, not worth the price paid. Restaurant very noisy and smokey. It was hard to get service.

Had a nice enough meal here, but it was neither wow or terrible. Had to add a lot of flavour to our dishes using the varied sauces they leave on the table for you, service was good and the waitress was pleasant enough on explaining the menu. I thought it was a bit over priced for what we got.

The only good thing about this place is the staff who are very good and nice. The food was just crap. They should just use old el paso mixes at least you cant cock those up

Came here this week as it's near our motel. The food was great, we loved our taco and burrito. The meat was tender and the spice combination tasted well balanced. Definitely recommended.
