Have had mixed experiences here --- the tex-mex is usually pretty good. The burger I had was rather awful -- so soaked in grease the bottom of the bun disintegrated when I picked it up. They seem a little tight too (cheese counted as one of your two added ingredients in an omelet) also nickel and dimed me on happy... More

Located down an alley as it's name suggests, it is well worth a visit if you want good food! I ordered the Angry Chicken Burger, and my partner ordered the Nachos Grande. Both were outstanding, my burger was juicy and full of flavour, and my partners Nachos were the best he'd had. The jug of frozen margaritas went down a... More

Conveniently next door to the Blue Lime hotel. My friend had a hankering for mexican beans...and we got that. Interesting characters in the bar. Felt a little bit seedy to me but it was obviously popular.

It did take some finding but there is a sign on the street and just go to the end of the lane way. Don't be put off by the location as it is well worth the effort. Great burgers!

We just ate dinner here and loved it! We arrived excited for a burrito or chimichanga but found out it was burger night - free upgrade to double burger or chilli cheese fries. We got a chili cheeseburger and an 'angry chicken' burger with the chilli cheese fries and they were both delish. Service was great and cocktails were cheap... More

This restaurant should be called fat cats. It is the greasiest burger I have ever had and inedible. Meat paddies fell apart and had oil dripping from all sides. Fries have been cooked multiple times and too soggy to eat, I guess the name of their burger was the only truth to it all quad druple bypass, I am sure... More

Fat cats at the alley? Of course! You can double any of our burgers, we call this a Fat Cat Burger. Our burgers are extremely popular, and we normally receive only compliments about them. The patty is made from Australian beef and should be nice and juicy. It is cooked on a griddle so hardly any oil is used when... More

The Alley Cat is really hard to find, but once you do it was worth the effort to do so. The food here was very good, really good Mexican cuisine. The only draw back to this place is that it is almost unbearably hot for lunch since there is no A/C, only ceiling fans, so it is very hot. Not... More

We can be a little difficult to find, so thanks for taking the effort. The new hotel in the alley has made it easier though. From the corner of st19, and st178 (or anywhere near the palace or national museum) look for the extremely tall brown building, we are in the same alley. You visited during a heatwave in the... More
