Great tacos. Don't expect anything fancy or crazy, they sell and serve super good tacos and that's about it. Hard and soft available with big range of salads and meats. They have a "plate for plate" thing which supports starving children, i thought this was a great idea. Yummy food. thank you

Not excellent, not bad, Mexican version of Subway. Relatively filling for the price but wouldn't rush back

This place offered what i would expected from a chain mexican. Good fresh tasty burrito made on the spot with a good punch of flavour. I had the beef with chipotle sauce and medium salsa, corn, jalapenos and standard salad. Filly, big and worth the value. Finished off with a beer and i was a happy camper. This is not... More

This place is the Australian clone of Chipotle from the United States and it shows. The burritos are okay, not great, and way overpriced. If you're used to traditional Mexican food this will offend your sensibilities; it's as if hipsters were given reign over a Taco Bell.

This restaurant has good food that tasted good and was relatively inexpensive. It is basically a fast food place though.

I usually have Zambrero 2-3 times a week in my hometown and highly rate the experience and food. We decided to have lunch at Zambrero while on holidays at Cairns. However, the staff were not overly helpful or friendly. Two of the orders didn't include all of the included options and staff were curt when offering the 'extras'. The service... More

My chicken burrito was edible but it was a bit soggy and messy. It was also the typical meat to rice ratio disorder you find in these type of places, where you need to go fishing to find any meat in all the rice. Places that do this annoy me so I won't be back.
