Horrible..... Our waiter was named Ryan.What a rude and horrible person, I don't even know how the hell he works in hospitality... We came here for a nice little meal between friends and left in such a vile mood. The (rude) waiter met us at the door after 5 minutes of us standing there to grab 3 menus and literally... More

Have been twice to this restaurant, good location, close to the Lowry Shopping outlet and Lowry theatre at Salford Quays. Car park outside the restaurant. Both times the service has been good, the staff polite, friendly and accommodating. adequate choice of dishes and drinks. The food is delicious, very tasty. I would recommend this restaurant for an informal meal as... More

Never been to this chain of restaurants before but visited with a group of friends whilst staying in the area. It was quite quiet when we arrived and we were shown to our table immediately. Drink orders were taken but thankfully we weren't too thirsty - they took an age to arrive. This set the theme for the evening -... More

booked a meal ages ago for the night before our wedding as a family get together, about 25 of us. the staff were lovely and the menu (we had the christmas menu) gave a good amount of choice. However, they seemed overwhelmed by the size of the party and every table had a problem - no starters for 1 person,... More

Ate here last about 10 years ago and wasn't too impressed, but this time the place had been completely refurbished and the food was much, much better than before. Delicious nachos and all the usual Mexican staples. The service was sometimes rather slow and inattentive, but still friendly enough. Planning to visit again soon.

The food and cocktails were good - the main meals were piping hot. However our waiter left a little to be desired...we had a query about the cocktails we ordered (it said they were available in a jug but he wasn't sure) however he never returned to clarify 2 glasses arrived with a different member of staff. He didn't write... More

I visited chiquito's with friends last week, we found the service to be great and the food was delicious! They even had sombreros and stick on moustache's to amuse us while we waited for our meal, which didn't take long to be served. We will definitely be visiting again and would recommend this place :)

I write this review after having waited 45 minutes for my fajitas, with no apology or acknowledgement of the delay from the rude waiter, who seemed inconvenienced by our mere presence. Never again.

Living quite close, we though we would give it a go as its a large chain. nachos were the best I have tried, although when the main of BBQ chicken melt arrived it didn't seem to be warm enough but was still nice, I would recommend.

Although the service we received was great, very friendly and efficient, the food was abysmal. At around £15 a meal, my partner and i had fajitas, which consisted of three little pancake wraps and 6 little tiny pieces of chicken on a bed of overdone onions. not worth it at all. My three year old daughter also had fajitas, the... More
