“Terrible meat”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Had tacos and nachos, but the meat was cooked and shredded, so disappointed! It tasted funny and the only really good thing was the salsa. Heard that the sizzling fajitas are good so should have tried those maybe, but I'm not going back there. Tried the new Mex&Co the other day,great meat!

“Food was great but the venue not so much”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The food was really tasty and reasonably priced you definitely get your moneys worth. The complimentary chips and salsa is not the norm in Australia so that was a nice surprise. We had the Chilli Con Queso Dip which was tasty but not the same as you would get overseas they used a cheap chedder or something instead of the traditional yellow cheese such as Velveeta, Vegetarian plate and the Beef Enchilada, huge servings!
The venue really needs a bit of a reno it's very tired and to get to the tiny bathroom you have to walk through the kitchen which is also tiny. Make sure you book early as the place gets booked out quickly and all walk-ins are turned away. It's extremely loud and not romantic in the slightest.

Unsure if we will be back.

Perfectly unpretentious delicious food- with lovely staff and a bill that didn't blow the budget. Great.

“Manly Mexican - better than expected”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Week 1 of Mexican May 2012 was held at Manly Mexican, we rocked up with 16 people at the restaurant - the staff were initially friendly and the food was fast to arrive (always a plus with a big group). I found the food awesome, particularly the pulled pork dipping stuff which came first.

Others in the group found the staff less helpful than they would have liked, but in fairness we were a bit of a rowdy crowd. My wife's odd allergies (msg/tomatoes) were taken care of perfectly and overall I was pretty happy with the food and atmosphere.

“Excellent value - great food”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Great authentic Mexican food! Laid back atmosphere with ice cold beer - just like all good Mexican resturants should have.

We had the nachos and they were great, fully loaded! The burritos were fab too although it was a struggle to finish everything!
