“Enjoyable Tex-Mex!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

I'm not sure if this is exactly "authentic" (whatever that is) but we had a great night here!
The staff were all very enthusiastic and engaging, making us don sombreros and mixing us special cocktails according to our tastes (mine was some sort of potent lychee-passionfruit concoction, it was amazing!).
The food was very nice, although we thought the jalapeno popper entree was a bit of a rip-off, £6 for only 4. They also mixed up our other entree - although we asked for the trio of dips they brought us the very similar (but slightly more expensive) nachos dish instead. Oh well. For mains we had the Mexican burger and vegetable chimichanga, both large servings and very tasty.
Although we visited at around 9pm on a Sunday night, the restaurant was still fairly busy - I could imagine it packing out on Fridays and Saturdays. We enjoyed the atmosphere (cheesy decor and all).
We splurged a little and the bill wound up at £80 for the two of us - although this included 2 courses and 2 or 3 cocktails each, and we felt it worthwhile. Including a complimentary shooter with the bill, we couldn't really complain ;)
The lively service and cocktails were the real winners, all in all a fun night. Recommended.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Having recently been in Mexico we were sceptical about eating Mexican food in the UK but we were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant! The food was really good, there was plenty of it, and the service was excellent. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Maybe I'm spoiled by having lived in Arizona a few yrs.,and also getting good Tex-
Mex in Texas, NYC, and Chicago. This restaurant was just average compared to ones in US. I can't even remember what I had- probably chimichanga. The specialty cocktail was very good and the service was good. I especially appreciated the free tequila shots at the end of the meal.

“Bad staff..never again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

I mostly given poor rating mostly on service..the staff was so rude, mood, rushing us to order and even to finish, it wasn't even overly busy! They was just standing around otherwise..was so annoyed that there was a service charge because they didn't deserve it! Also when we paid for are bill the lady didn't return are change and took the mints that was meant for us to take but she just scooped them away. we ended up having to ask for are change and for a mint..we never once got asked how are food was either..only if we was finish or ready to order about 50 times! Looking over the shoulder and standing around off watching what we are doing? it was very uncomfortable! There was also woman that was just wearing normal casual clothes? in a orange top..we didn't realise she was stuff until she kept rushing us about are food! Only one person we liked was a short guy with a bald head who was on the door who was very helpful and cheerful! I think his name was David? If it weren't for him we wouldn't of even went in, because I wanted to leave soon as the first waitress came but that would of been rude. Will not be going back there...
