The place is decorated very Mexican. The food is excellent, even when the cook is not authentic Mexican. The location is not good. The service by Jillian was more than excellent. There was a guy that arrived after me that looks young, and the first thing that the guy in the bar asked was the ID, and for me that's... More

We went there last week and enjoyed great service and a shot of tequila. All their hot sauces were home made which I love. I had the pulled pork tacos with the fresh corn tortillas with re fried beans and Mexican rice - amazing with nice fresh salsa and homemade quac. Prices are reasonable I have had cheaper. But felt...

When travelling my husband and i always look for some authentic Mexican food as it is our favourite and we don't get it where we live so we found this place and while i really wanted to love it, i just liked it. The chicken quesadillas were ok...not much flavor, just chicken and cheese. The guac was good as was... More

On a Tuesday evening, with only a few tables attended (so they were not too busy to accommodate), I tried to order several times unsuccessfully. First time, I wanted a Margarita but was told I had to order food in order to get a margarita (or move to the bar?). I was with friends, so didn't want to move. So... More

There are no Mexican Restaurants where I live in Truro so its a treat to eat at a Mexican Restaurant. I was shocked and surprised to learn that Cheachie's was in Bayers Lake for the past seven years and have driven by it hundreds of times and never knew it was there. This must happen often because we were asked... More

Good atmosphere, friendly staff. It ends there. The food.......... unsatisfactory. Seemed like something that can be whipped up at home in short order at a fraction of the cost. We left disgruntled, hungry and PO'ed. Expensive for the quantity/quality given. Wait staff seem to have been over-tasked.

Hello and thanks Sean I am so sorry to hear of your experience at Cheachies. While we strive to make everyone's visit a happy one, sometimes we fail. You fail to mention what you ordered and I am trying to figure out which dish left you still hungry. May I ask if your server came over to ask if the... More

Very fresh and delicious. Staff is friendly and make it a fun experience. We have tried the burgers and the Mexican and highly recommend both. Everything is made from scratch. Love the atmosphere here as well.

Great spot tucked away at the end of Chain Lake Dr. Don't forget to try the apps of homemade Chips! All the food is made fresh. Make sure you save room for the Deep fried banana! See you there soon.

Visited this restaurant with my family for dinned in early May. We all left full and happy.. Tried 4 of their different Mexican dishes and each voted that the chicken fajitas were the best, the chicken was so flavourful (cooked with honey I think?) and filling. We arrived in Halifax on May 5 and went here for dinner without realizing... More
