After a long day of unpacking boxes we enjoyed the ever reliable family favourite mexican food here. Was saddened to learn that they have now closed down.

Good Margaritas, 1/2 price fridays during certain times, food a little oily due to the abundance of cheese, good family outing

I was dragged to this place on a work turn by people who aren't "foodies". Not sure if it is fooling the locals but this is hardly Mexican food. Why eat here when there are so many great Mexican restaurants in Melbourne? It is places like this that give Mexican food a very bad name. Don't go there!

One evening I was wandering around Brighton looking for something to eat and I spied a Mexican restaurant. Having not had Mexican for a while (which is a shame because I really do like Mexican) I decided that I would give this place a go. Unfortunately it was closed, but the staff were more than happy to let me in... More

Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Kind and considerate staff. Nothing extraordinary in those respects but the food is really fresh and delicious and the presentation is impressive too. Don't think of it as a food chain, think of it as a nice place to go with a few friends for some really delicious Mexican-inspired food.

To call this Mexican food is like buying an old VW Beetle and calling it a racing car. Sure, it has all the same components, but you will be very, very disappointed. This chain has been around for a very long time and I'm pretty sure it has been single-handedly responsible for Australians hating Mexican food for decades. In the... More

Everyone seems to love mexican, its always so busy that owners cannot keep up which effects the service - a shame, this was the case here also however it was still a good night and cannot complain that the food met the Taco Bills standards - great place to take the family & mum & dad can drink Margheritas or...

This is the closest you will come to authentic Mexican in Australia. Food and service are great. Selection of Tequila's and cocktails is good and location handy. Be careful to go early as it packs out quickly.
