I'm a fan of Mexican food. I love it. I have a stonkingly good Mexican restaurant within walking distance of my home (see 'Amigos, Sheffield'). But this place is easily as good as that. The large portions of beautifully marinated meat allied with the flavourful cheese melting in the quesadilla (I disagree with the last reviewer - the cheese is tasty but does balances beautifully with the meat); the freshness of the (I presume home made) salsa with a generous portion of sour cream (some places drizzle a bit on and think that's enough). All for about 6 quid. Major bargain!!!! I shall return every time business takes me to Edinburgh. The side of beans was perhaps unnecessary in hindsight, but worked well mixed in with the main quesadilla..... Bear in mind it is essentially a take away, so the dine-in experience is limited on that basis. But I;d happily eat this food standing out on Leith Walk. In the rain. In minus 5.
