Went with a group & pre ordered our food, there was one slight hiccup with one of the starters being forgotten but they offered a free drink and the starter soon appeared piping hot. Everyone enjoyed both starters & main courses. The food by it's nature is very filling so not everyone could manage a dessert but those that did said they were very nice.
Reasonably priced good food, friendly service, would recommend giving a try.

Recently celebrated my sons 18th birthday here with family and friends. First time for some. We pre ordered our food and it came out hot, well presented and on time.

Some of our party don't eat Mexican food and they kindly offered some alternatives including chicken nuggats for a young teenager and plain steak and chips.

The staff were efficient and friendly and made us feel very special. Cheers guys - we'll definitely be back

Nice tasty food, reasonably fair prices and fun atmosphere. That's where the good review ends, as unfortunately the girls "serving" spent the whole time discussing their personal lives and latest diets and eating or drinking behind the bar, and shamelessly giving a mate if theirs who popped in free drinks and to top it all having the cheek to ask if we wanted to have the change back when we paid our bill...Cheeky cow!

Just got home from a meal at The Old Mexican, haven't been for a few years and after reading the recent reviews was a bit worried, but needn't have been, the food was really good. The nachos that we shared for starter was excellent, we all had various dishes and they were all perfectly cooked and really tasty. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed but vibrant.
