“Will fill you up!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2014 via mobile

Visited a few times, always found the food great and left stuffed.

Food well priced and reasonably quick to arrive.

Bar service also good, nice range of cocktails

One thing we did notice was that they changed from a boiled rice to a more spicy rice which wasn't as nice (possibly as didn't expect it to have such a kick) - please offer either boiled or spicy in future :-)

“Poor food not a great mexican atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014

We visited Señor Dicks after a recommendation but were very disappointed. The meat was chewy and all the food looked like it had been cooked the day before and reheated. The waitress was friendly and apologised but the place lacked a mexican atmosphere.

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile

Okay, so it's not entirely authentic! Tacos in Mexico aren't crispy, but the food was great, steak cooked as ordered and the service was friendly. Portion size good too.

“Great Mexican food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

Myself and two friends visited here late on a Thursday night and we were quite impressed by the food! The servings are generous, the wraps well filled and the enchiladas were delicious and nice and spicy! The drinks menu is an added bonus, with great cocktails which compliment the meal and overall for what you get the cost is very reasonable, a meal and cocktail cost me roughly £14. Our waitress was excellent, very chatty and was a great host. If I'm ever back in Newquay, I'll definitely be back!

“Fantastic food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

Food was great but maybe a little on the spicy side for some. We ate in the quieter upstairs restaurant but they easily accommodated 8 of us with sustained excellent service.

We were there for a few hours and were met with an endless supply of Corona and Jose Cuervo!

The downstairs eating area is better suited for parties etc. as it seemed a lot more hectic upon passing to use the facilities.

Would definately recommend to any lover of Mexican cuisine.
