“Good Tacos Nice Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

My husband and I got some cheap tacos here for lunch and really enjoyed them.
They weren't amazing but they were pretty good and we have eaten at a bunch of Mexican restaurants in the States.

“Just Don't”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

To preface, I am originally from Nevada/California and I love Mexican Food. I always go to our Tienda's and Carnecireas at home to get authentic food stuffs. After trying to get some flavor in Madrid, we decided to try this place as it was close to our hotel. They have tequila and Corona's, but the food was awful. The salsa had zero flavor; no onions, no cilantro, no jalapeno, and was served in a very small bowl. The beans were maybe an eighth of a cup, and fair. I had the fajita's, actually more of a TexMex dish, and it tasted of soy sauce, with just a few green pepper strands. The tortillas, masa--corn, were the best part of the meal. I was extremely disappointed. Please, just don't. A frozen dinner of Mexican food is better than here.

“good food and atmospheric”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

We were looking for an early dinner (by Madrid) standards and this place was open. We liked the friendly service, good selection of mexican favourites and the nice atmosphere. Quite enjoyed the tequillas too, at least 6-7 types on offer.

“Good? Really?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

Very very disappointed Pinche Juerro...seriously.... pushing Mexican food for those who don't know better.

First of all I was raising my eyebrows at paying 8euros for nachos...and 9.50 for cheese and guacamole on them? Really? That's a good way to irritate me for starters.

Ambiance pretty nice- it's a tiny joint and you're going to get squeezed in...but that's fine....bright colors and good ambiance with Mana playing in the background....works well for an authentic Mexican meal.
The Margarita tasted like some kind of supermarket special....you'd think they'd be able to make a margarita without some cheap mix....especially that part of the restaurant has a bar in it.
Service was nice- no arguments here and the prices for the mains were fair.

We stayed with basics- Carnitas and chicken fajitas....chicken was well cooked...but seriously....I can cook chicken....Carnitas on the other hand....nasty. Tasted nothing like carnets I've ever eaten and I spent the evening trying to digest it....
