My partner and have become regulars here the last few months and it felt like time to write a review cos it's such a lovely place. Then I read some of the recent mixed reviews and I wanted to write one even more because I don't recognise the criticisms, mainly about whether the staff are friendly. Apart from one woman who is kind of neutral, the staff are some of the friendliest I've come across and that's one of the reasons we kept coming back. Sorry I don't know names, but the woman with auburn hair and glasses, the guy with fair hair and a beard, and the guy who usually wears checked shorts are all so lovely! We're not typical trendy Chorlton types so it's not that they're selective. There's just the right amount of helpfulness and banter, and a feeling of genuinely wanting you to have a nice time.
As for the food - we're big fans of the burgers. I'm very picky when it comes to meat and hate that worry about bits of gristle and unidentified whatevers in your mouth. These are the only burgers I will eat. The meat is really good quality, cooked medium unless you ask for it cooked through. A few different varieties. My favourite is Santa Bill & Monica, with bacon (burgers £7-9). Yum. I've also has the pulled pork burrito (lovely), the nachos (brilliant when they come free if you order 2 mains before 7pm, a bit overpriced at £4.95 otherwise), the fries (which are now twice the size which is better value), and the basket of 4 mix and match tacos for £10 on a Tuesday.
The experience one woman had with the shouting man sounds awful, but it's not typical of the place. It's usually a mix of tables of 30something friends, couples (straight and gay), families with kids (I'm not usually a fan of kids but it's big and bustling enough not to matter!) and the odd well behaved dog.
I would say definitely give it a go.
