“Must try the haggis burrito!”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

This place makes amazing burritos and I can't recommend enough the haggis option! Sounds bizarre but the flavour combination is perfect. They are also very generous portions...you will not be hungry!

“Top take-out”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Thought I was just getting a bog-standard chain-type take out but way way better and really tasty. Cheap for what it is and it is good!

“AMAZING”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Los Cardos is the best quality food I have ever tasted! I go there quite regularly as it's too good to walk past without popping in for a steak burrito!!! Staff are really friendly and welcoming. They do a loyalty card by which you get a stamp with every purchase and get a free meal when the card is full. Let's just say, it doesn't take long to fill this card!!! It's a must visit as it's by far the best Mexican in Edinburgh

“Yum!”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Los Cardos is now on my fave takeout list. Half the price of other takeaways, and yet most delicious! The format is simple too...

1 - choose your weapon (burrito, fajita, quesadilla, naked burrito)

2 - choose your filling (roasted veggies, chicken, steak, the most delicious slow cooked pork, or haggis - yes, haggis!) and you can have more than one if it's hard to choose!

3 - Extras - cheese, sourcream, guacamole, etc. it's all there.

The team could not be nicer and will accomodate all weird and wonderful concoctions with a smile! The delivery range is pretty decent too as I live in the Grassmarket and they deliver all the way from Leith Walk! Top marks! Yum!!!

Haute cuisine it is not, but for a night in with friends it couldn't be more perfect.

“Yummy goodness”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

A great find, wish I'd known about it years ago as a new addiction has been found!
A limited menu Burritos, burrito bowls, quesadillas and soft tacos (£6.25-£6.50) all with a choice of 6 different filling and various topping plus sides, but don't let this put you off.
Everything we had was full of flavour, a good portion size and made fresh in front of you.
My favourite, the 3 small soft tacos. You can have different fillings in each and for me the chicken in a chilli-citrus marinade is great, so fresh and moist a perfect balance of flavours. Even when full I still want more.
Take a way or eat in at the 3 or 4 small tables, with the food served on tin plates, a really nice touch.
Friendly staff who explained different dishes and quickly and efficiently made our choice.
Only negative no corn crispy taco shell
