Been to Tacos Locos a few times now but the visit has always been for some kind of celebration e.g. Birthday party, leaving party. The place is lively and has a great atmosphere. They have a menu that is just under £15 for a starter and main (+ free shot and party popper) and if it's for a birthday they... More

With nice outside tables, and good staff levels we thought we would have a nice meal and experience. It was not busy, and we were met by the owner. Sadly the food delivered was bland, poor and lacked any true Mexican zing. The buffalo wings starter had just two wings. The pork chops were thin and tasteless, and the cheesecake... More

The food was very average, the chicken ciabatta had 3 pieces of chicken. The cocktails are very nice and a lot of choice, so they must rely on people getting drunk to enjoy the food! We felt that we were not welcome in the restaurant and it was obvious that they wanted our table for someone else. When others were... More

Had a great night with the family celebrating a birthday. Staff were great, cocktails are amazing and free drink for the Birthday boy! Food was delicious. Great fun wearing the sombreros too! Perfect Mexican experience

A very lively Mexican cantina near to the Cathedral, the Marlowe Theatre and other sites of interest. There are sharing platters and plates for one as well as mains, so perfect for my friend and I who don't eat a lot. The main courses looked on the hearty side judging by neighbours' plates, but nobody minded that we didn't order... More

it was our first trip to Canterbury and there was a fight in the town which was very frightening so we went into this restaurant, by chance, to escape! Once inside, there was a party atmosphere with lively music and a hat was plopped on our heads and the fun began! Our servers were very friendly and knowledgeable of the... More

Must admit I was pushed through the door by my partner as I didn't like the look of the place. I love Mexican food but this was outrageously tasteless. Everything on my plate was tasteless. The sour cream was sweet with no flavour, the guacamole had no flavour and the red chillis well not even hot. For some reason there... More

This Mexican themed restaurant is fun from the minute you walk in. Sombreros on the table, great music and all the Tex Mex favorites on the menu. Staff are very good and you get song on your birthday. Good fun night out, but go hungry - it is very filling.

We had a really fun meal here. It's a great idea to have Mexican hats on the tables for people to wear. Great food, a huge menu, food came promptly. Would highly recommend.
