Description: Nanna Mexico was founded in 2005 to provide a healthy, affordable and delicious alternative to traditional fast foods. By using only the freshest ingredients, Nanna Mexico creates classic Mexican favourites like tacos, burritos, quesidillas and nachos. The Nanna Mexico lunch van visits business parks in and around the region Monday-Friday. On 5th May 2014, Nanna Mexico opened it's second restaurant in Cambridge at 29 Petty Cury and now the third one in Norwich, serving the same Mexican favourites as the Regent Street branch. We hope you visit soon.

“We go out of our way to visit every time we are in Cambs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

We often go through Cambridge as a stop gap, changing trains when visiting family. We stumbled upon Nanna Mexico once when we had a delay - raining, miserable and with hungry kids - and it has since become a staple part of visiting Cambridge. We have been known to walk from the train station, grab take-away and walk back, missing an earlier connection, to get Nanna Mexico.

I've been to similar Mexican places around the UK but Nanna Mexico is my favourite. The kids love the nachos and they do excellent veggie 'big-a*s' burritos. The loyalty card is fab and I am a huge fan of the occasional frozen margarita. A haven of decent food among all the usual chain restaurants or overpriced food just because you are in Cambridge.

Big fans - high five and thumbs up. Can I have the giant blow up Corona please?

“Perfect for takeaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is the best Mexican food I've had since leaving the States. All of the ingredients were super-fresh. Portions were large. We enjoyed everything we tried. The burritos are to die for. Get the Carnitas (spiced, pulled pork). The seating area wasn't special, but Parker's Piece (park) is right behind the restaurant, so we took our food and sat on the grass to eat. Perfect!

“Authentic Mexican fast food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

A Mexican joint that serves huge burritos. I got a lovely chicken burrito. It was great. I will be back!

“We weren't blown away...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

We have been on the lookout for a truly authentic taste of Mexico and this is our second stab at trying to find it. Having had a so-so experience several days before at Cafe Pacifico in London, we hoped this place would offer something a little less bland. It's better, certainly, but still the food wasn't particularly exciting no matter how many combinations of ingredients we tried. Where was the heat and the spice? A couple of dishes delivered to our table were poorly presented and I've made tastier mexican style food myself to be honest. There is no atmosphere here and, really, it's just fast food. Still, the toilet facilities were clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We have heard good things about Mestizo, London, and intend to try there next.

“Yummy food at a good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Excellent food and friendly staff. It's a good place for all the family. We have been eating there regularly since the shop opened and before that from their van. We have always had fantastic food and service.
