Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic food, amazing selection of cocktails and a wide range of sombreros to choose from!! Great atmosphere and lively clientele make this a great place to celebrate birthdays and special occasions of the more rambunctious kind. Highly recommend!

Lovely meal, and very reasonably priced. 1 minor criticism was the condiments (ie sour cream etc) you get with the fajitas was on the stingy side and just about filled 2 tortillas, let alone the 4 you get with the meal. Also not sure I...understood or quite enjoyed the blue dye and glitter round my glass of sangria. But food really tasty! Great service, very attentive and friendly young waitresses. Will definitely be back.More

Nice party menu. Very good value. I love it when I get to wear my Mexican party hat. It makes me feel like a Bandito roaming the plains and hunting down the gringos

Booked here for a birthday meal. The food was fantastic, portions very generous and the service was excellent. The only downside was that you can't tip on cards and we had no cash on us so the servers didn't get a tip. Can't wait to...go back again.More

Great for meeting friends, laughing and enjoying good food. The team were able to adapt the menu for my food intolerances, without a fuss, which added to a great dinner out.

No booking to an empty restaurant & given a time limit. I went with a friend that recommended this very restaurant. Out of courtesy both my friend & I chose a meal that wouldn't take too long. I was not all impressed by the flavour....There were flies around the place, so tried to look past that! Every 15 mins or so a new waitress would veer to take the plates in the space of 1 hr and urged for the next dish. Even before finishing one meal. I found of poor grace & put us off wanting to even order more. After complaining to the rude approach of disturbing a meal. The manager admitted that they wanted the table for someone else. So rushing us to eat and force the bill then shove us out in making us feel uncomfortable. I've never felt so disgusted with the atmosphere and attitude of a restaurant. Not recommended at all.More

We visited this bustling restaurant on a Saturday evening. It is conveniently located in the centre of town and it was very busy, which led to a good atmosphere. The staff were attentive and helpful. The food was average in my opinion. The mushroom starter,...was not great at all - deep fried to within an inch of its life, leading to rock hard breadcrumbs and tiny mushrooms inside. We ordered the sirloin steak main course and were left feeling disappointed - the steak was extremely thin and was really no more than a minute steak. We were asked how it should be cooked, and after ordering rare steaks, they arrived sizzling on a red hot skillet - of course this meant that the skinny piece of beef simply carried on cooking for the duration of the meal, resulting in a very tough, hugely overcooked offering. Not enjoyable at all, however the flavours of the sauces etc… were good. Looking back, I suspect we chose badly, and I am sure that the more traditional offerings such as Burritos or Enchiladas would have been delicious.More

Not sure any of these have cheese sauce?? Maybe the enchiladas. I like all of the above and like spicy food probably enchiladas are least spicy. The restaurant will give you recommendations - always helpful staff.
