nice sitting outside in jbr however the salad was not fresh ( especially the tomato ) also the avocado and the grilled chicken sandwich lacks creativity and innovation ( just grilled with mayonnaise ) , but the service was ok

Enjoyed a solo dinner here, very fast service (would have been too fast in company, but fine dining solo). Excellent range and quality of Mexican food, had a great frozen Margarita (a dry venue) and all in all for a quick bite with friends I couldn't fault. Friendly service, ate outside, would return!

Friendly staff (if a little pushy to take the order) and quick service. All food was delicious and a good portion size. The outdoor seating had excellent views of JBR but indoors was too cold and had greasy kitchen aroma.

This is a treat for those who love Mexican food including chillies. We have had a dinner as a couple. The service is perfect, the food excellent. We can recommend the guacamole prepared in front of you as well as the many enchilladas on offer. One of the high points of the Walk.

You also have to love any place in Dubai that gives you free chips and salsa! Portions are big. Menu selection is not much different than what you would find on a Chili's menu and it lacks some authenticity. Very friendly staff and great service. Good selection of deserts. Don't forget your entertainer voucher!

I am visiting them very often. Great variety of items in the menu, big portions, very tasty food in reasonable price. They have amazing desserts as well as mocktails. Its a great place to come and chill with friends, family or your partner.

Went to eat today for a late lunch, food was over priced, bland and had no wow factor. Staff are amazing and friendly and overall experience was ok but food was a total let down! First and last visit!

We have had 2 good meals at El Chico on JBR. However, we would not go back if we didn't have vouchers. The meals are just a little too expensive to justify getting a little better than average mexican food. Good environment to watch cars going by on JBR but would suggest bringing a entertainer voucher.

Went to the one next to JBR, had real good food. Great service- very hospitable. Real cozy atmosphere. At the moment, lot of construction work going on in the vicinity so it may be slightly difficult to spot it...Strongly recommend it- esp the Fajita Nachos!
