“Big flavours and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

Quite a small venue but in a great location. Excellent service and the food is great! Portions are large and the countless flavours of margaritas are brill! Defo recommend the beef taco salad bowl!!

“Best Mexican ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Went at late lunchtime on a Saturday and we were the only people in (we just typed in "mexican" into Google maps to find one near us)
I just think we were just very lucky as the rugby was on and jusging by other reviews its REALLY busy at night. Its a bit off the beaten track but the spicy Fajitas were amazing. Best I have ever had (and I eat them a lot- even in Mexico).

Good range of Mexican beers and very good service

Can't fault it.
