Five of us had a great meal here this week. Really enjoyed the food, which was well presented. We'll be back.

Had lunch here today, though beer is pricy (is that Texmex or Scottish influence) food and service is wonderful

“food great customer service poor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

visited tex mex II recently, arrived ten minutes late and received a cool reception from waiting staff, I could see the point if restaurant was packed out, but it wasnt...the waiter proceeded to clean the table and then seat us (the atmosphere was rather frosty).The tiny bowl of chili popcorn arrived and we ordered, food was lovely but couldnt help noticing how tired the paintwork and furnishings looked...I also found the music too loud (must be getting old) and staff looked rather stressed and im sure diners have arrived late before (cest la vie !) I will try the one at cockburn street next time....

“DON'T GO HERE RUDE STAFF!!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Went in with a group of 9 girls, and because I had not phoned the restaurant to state that 3 people had cancelled he was rude and stated 3 times in front of the group that he was not pleased with this. I thought this was really rude in front of the group, considering we were the only ones giving them business. Maybe this was why it was empty. We did not leave a service charge because of this, despite they highlighted it on the bill!! This is the only restaurant that has complained like this and only one that asked for a service charge!! We will not be back, you have lost out on a lot of business, as I run a group for outings.
