Excellent service and tasty food!

Had dinner here recently after not visiting for some time. We were really impressed; service was friendly and fast. Meals were tasty and nice to share a couple of dishes. Would definitely visit again. Great change from Taco Bill!

Nothing stand out at this family restaurant. The place was quite full of families with small children and oldies enjoying the blanded out mexican dishes served by friendly and helpful staff. Taquitos and taco shells tasted stale. The nacho entrée was great but mains were lacking in flavor and tasted like a cheesy, soggy mess. Cocktail was delicious (red corvette)... More

A sensational feed with friendly staff and great service. A bit of airconditioning wouldn't go astray as it is extremely hot in there. Highly recommend!!!

This is a great choice for both dine-in and take away. Staff are friendly and you often get discount vouchers for your next visit.

Great little local Mexican restaurant. Very popular for a thurs night. Great food & value for money. Getting staff attention is a bit difficult at times. Overall a great place.

Don't bother with this place. The food was average, not mexican. Just burritos, nachos and all drowning in cheese. If you want real Mexican dont bother!

Friendly staff They spilt bills You don't need to book Food is poor but edible. You walk out smelling like the deep fryer because the kitchen isn't really separate from the restaurant. Food if too expensive for what it is. Wouldn't recommend but if you were to find yourself there it would be okay.
