We have been a few times as it is just around the corner, think it is really good value and the food is tasty. Starter, Main and Drinks usually costs us about 20-25 pounds pp. Real comfort food. The staff do not speak a lot of English. Other than that enjoy it every time

Ended up at this restaurant with an hour to spare before we went to see Wicked. The restaurant we wanted to eat at had a half hour wait so we needed to find somewhere and stumbled on this. I'm glad I didn't read reviews first else I wouldn't have gone.

The restaurant is fun with over the top character. All the staff wear cowboy hats or sombreros and they are also covering the walls. The cocktail menu is extensive and reasonably priced with some more unusual choices as well. The food menu is good with Classic Mexican choices as well as choices such as meat kebabs.

The staff were very friendly and hurried our order through when they knew we were seeing a show. The food was nice and very reasonably priced. Clearly this isn't top notch cuisine at these prices (mains under £10) but it's very nice.

With a starter, 2 mains, extra side, 2 cocktail and a beer the bill was £40.

Always a good sign when the restaurant is full on and everyone was enjoying themselves.

Highly recommended.

We visted the restaurant because it was recommended to us by a friend.One of us ordered fish which was very nice , the others ordered the corona chilli con carne which was nice but nothing special.The red wine was good and the virgin cocktail was nice as well.However the service was poor.The waiters spoke poor english, which would have not been a big deal as they were very
friendly. Unfortunately the manager was the complete opposite.When we paid our bill he disappeared with the money never to return with our change and completely ignored us afterwards.Due to this experience we will not visit loco mexicano again as we were very displeased with the behaviour of the manager.

I dont know where to start. OK, lets be honest and start with the positive: Friendly staff. Thats it. Then to the rest, first of all if you see other reviews by me, you will understand I am really into Mexican food. This place does not serve Mexican food. They seem to be serving guacamole from a tin can gotten in the local store and their chips are not homemade, the best part of the nachos was the sour cream... After the starters we decided not to even get the main course. When it comes to the drinks, if you plan to get wasted this is a superb place as there is plenty of alcohol in the drinks, but they do not taste what they intended, example the passionfruit mojito tastes like lime infused alcohol.

We were wary of going here based on reviews about bad service, but we really enjoyed it! The prices are reasonable, the food is delicious, the service was prompt and friendly.
