Great music and atmosphere for drinks and really nice food if you fancy a Mexican Subway! Similar concept at a reasonable price, it does have a slight school dinners feel to it but given the vibe it just adds to the fun!

“Cheap, Delicious and Relaxed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2008

We went here for a meal last night and it was absolutely fabulous!!

You order drinks from the bar and then find somewhere to sit, and then when you're ready, you order your food from the serving area at the back - it is plated up in front of you and you pay there and then, before taking it back to your table.

There is no menu as such - you choose what style of tortilla or tacos you would like and then select your fillings and toppings from a huge variety. Absolutely delicious and under £5!! Free soft drink (Lemonade, Coke or Diet Coke) with every food purchase aswel!

Extensive and varied cocktail menu with many twists and alternate takes on the classics - we fell in love with the Purple Poncho and the Dirty Cosmopolitans!

The only reason I haven't given it 5 Stars is that there are no dessert options, and the music was very loud! It was a busy Saturday night when we visited and the staff kept turning the music above the volume of the customers, who then had to shout more, and then the music went up again....

A very relaxed approach to dining and I will definitely be visiting it again!
