“A true mexican experience”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

No trip to Chingadas is complete without their fantastic range of tequila, they also serve a killer margarita (lime) and some great draught beer. Anyway, on to the food which is fantastic, I personally have not had nachos anywhere that compare to Chingadas and I do tend to order the nachos most times I visit - and they always please. The rest of the menu is also great and I recommend the chilli con carne and the coriander and corona battered fish. Great service, well priced.

“Good Times Roll Here!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

We have eaten here many times since they made they move to Sixth Avenue and each time the food, service and vibe get better.

On our last visit our table ordered a variety of dishes on the menu and everyone was impressed with the tasty food that arrived. My fish taco was perfectly cooked, it was even better than the previous occasion. The deep fried jalapeños on the sides menu were a little greasy, I am hoping they won't be like that next time.

Service was quick and very friendly, our waiter really did his best. It was very relaxing to receive things just as we asked.

The only negatives are the tatty menus and the noise levels. Not sure what can be done about the latter, but this won't dissuade us from returning soon.

“Mexican Flavour”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Extensive Mexian menu with great flavours. The decor is rustic and lends itself to a "cantina" vibe with loud music and a busy bar area. Best enjoyed with a group of freinds.

“Food tasteless and bland”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We ordered the make your own taco and the quesadillas as well as the fajitas, everything was bland and tasteless, no salt or flavor! It was recommended by friends which apparently loves the place, but we found the food, horrible!
