I visited here midweek along with 12 colleagues/friends as our end of term celebration. Firstly, the communication re booking and ordering was extremely quick and efficient (and funny!!). The night itself was brilliant...the food was absolutely superb right up to the side orders. The staff were professional but also unobtrusive which is a real skill. We all loved the relaxed... More

Not a bad place to eat. Would like to see more for children as my kids would love this place and would be great if they ever manage to get bigger premises. Always busy and you would be better booking a table as you would not want to be disappointed if you could not get in. Menu is great the... More

The staff handleld him well in spite of being a little vocal and he soon got back into the swing of it and rally enjoyed... More

Visited here on a Friday night with some friends and we greeted and made to feel welcome in our arrival. This is only a very small establishment so I would recommend booking well in advanced (two weeks) as it is very popular and does get very busy. Around the restaurant there is a choice of Mexican dress that customers can... More

Being local we had heard good things about Chimichangos and decided to visit ourselves, as a family, on my birthday in June. We had a great time. The welcome was warm, atmosphere relaxed and friendly. We opted for the set menu which turned out to be a good choice, as although quite limited, it was great value, hot and tasty... More

We pre-ordered, due to the size of our party, and our food came out really soon after we arrived, and in quick succession. Staff were friendly and attentive, always asking if we needed more drinks etc. Starter of nachos for one was MASSIVE - delicious, but far too much for one person. The main was a great size, and extremely... More

Description
THE journey from Wheelock Street to Chimichangos may just be a few steps. But as soon as you walk through the door it feels like a voyage of discovery. Shades of orange and subtle lighting lend an ambience to the restaurant. Above the bar is a painted landscape filled with cacti and sombreros playfully hang from walls and chairs. It is the kind of scene you might expect from an inner-city restaurant but this is Middlewich. Chimichangos officially opened at the weekend and the Guardian was invited to give it a try. Owner Jason Tanfield has transformed Kandi’s Steakhouse into a Mexican restaurant. The 36-year-old said he identified a gap in the market as there is only a handful of independent venues in Cheshire where you can enjoy Mexican food. Jason is also drawing on his experience as he used to be the head chef at a restaurant called The Three Amigos in Exeter about 15 years ago. My partner and I were promptly seated and were struck by how attentive and polite the staff were. We were soon sipping Coronas and tucking into some tortilla chips with delicious home-made salsa. To start we had creamy garlic mushrooms in a tortilla shell and jalapenos stuffed with soft cheese which were both perfect. We followed this up with vegetable fajitas and chicken fajitas respectively - and this is where Chimichangos showed its edge over some of its competitors. Firstly you can choose how hot you want your food to be which is sure to be welcomed by both spice addicts and those who like things mild. The portions were also incredibly generous which tends to be unusual for Mexican restaurants. There genuinely was not much to criticise but it would have been nice to have some cheese with the fajitas but im told they do normally and had forgot!! The service was prompt and my partner, a vegetarian, was impressed with the range of suitable dishes. Credit also goes to Jason for making good use of the limited space available. At the time of our visit a large group for a 21st birthday celebration was being accomodated. We were defeated by the time it came to dessert but suffice to say a taste of Mexico is on offer for those with a sweet tooth. The menu even includes a banana wrapped in a tortilla and dusted with cinnamon called a chimichanga. The whole experience was fantastic and comes highly recommended.NOTE:This was a secret food critic from the guardian newspaper just search GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER MIDDLEWICH
