“Having eaten in Texas”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Was promised a great Mexican flavor and experience,

Food was far from expectations, expensive, & service was poor

Overall this restaurant was busy but overrated due to people not knowing what "real" Mexican food is really like. not even close to being real Mexican food. that being the case, whatever you want to call the food, it wasnt good. extremely expensive for the food you are given. so bad i wouldn't feed it to my dog.

But for lack of trying mexican try for yourself and be the judge

“Authentic Mexican Taste”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Love Love Love this place. Came across a few years ago when we needed to kill some time between dropping off and picking up some friends. Been back quite a few time since will go back again and again! Love the intimate dining, wonderful flavours, great service and reasonably priced!

“Terrible meat”
2 of 5 bubbles 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”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Yummo”

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