“Nice atmosphere, let down by average menu and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Really was looking foward to some good mexican food. Thought the food was average as was the service. The actual restaurant is really nice with a good little bar area. Would I go back, not by choice.

“Fantastic food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I feel like the reviews for this Chimichanga are quite unfair. I have eaten at this branch 3 times now, and the service has been good overall. I ate there at the weekend, and we did have to ask twice for a jug of water, but it was 7pm on a Saturday, I'm willing to let that slide.

The food here is great. I've had the Chimi's combo (a selection of starters), the piri-piri chicken, the steak fajitas and the ribs before. The ribs were fantastic when I had them. At the weekend, I tried the bacon and cheese burger, which comes wrapped in a tortilla. The burger was one of the best burgers I have eaten for a while - it tasted properly cooked as if it was done on a BBQ. Would definitely eat here again and order the burger or the ribs.

“BRING BACK OLD MENU WITH REAL STEAKS”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Sadly our last visit to Chimichanga, was not the same as previous occasions - the menu has been changed, and so has the cuts of steak. We had a very nice starter which was large, with lovely freshly squeezed orange juice - but our main courses where appalling, steak fillets? of which half of the meat was uneatable as full of fat and completely uncooked even though we had requested medium.

The last time we had visited this restaurant 6 months prior to menu change, the steak where to perfection - sadly i refused to pay for our main meals as we had hardly touched it and the fat content was clear to see - the manager of this restaurant is a professional and was sincere in his apologises, and did offer us other alternatives, but we needed to leave we did not have time to re-order, so we paid for drinks and starter. Sadly i doubt we will return as this dining experience has put us off.

“mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

well the atmosphere was fine but the service time was appalling as we waited easily 30mins before we were offered desert menus. The starter was tasty but took 5 mins to come out the kitchen which is worrying as the items that it consisted of shouldn't take that sort of time it shouldve been longer. The main was bland and had no taste, the ribs had no taste at all sainsburys does better ribs than they do. wouldn't go again personally but feel free to try for yourself.

“Good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Came here as a group of ten friends for my boyfriends birthday. It's seems like a really popular place as we were booked in for 8.30 and it was packed.
Can't fault the food though. Every single one of us had a really nice meal and the waiter was friendly.
It took a while for our drinks to come but then, you can forgive people for that as I guess getting it all ready at once while it's already pretty busy isn't the easiest thing in the world.
One of our guys order was wrong, as he wanted rice instead of chips, but this wasn't a problem as the waiter kindly brought him a side of rice. Dealt with really nicely.
Was impressed
