“decent”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

I'm from America so I grew up eating burritos. Burritos as most of us know them are really Tex-Mex (or Americanized Mexican food). But that's beside the point. Burritos are delicious. When I visited Los Cardos I thought service was friendly and I was happy with my burrito and soft tacos. The reviewer below who prefers Illegal Jacks over Los Cardos - wow! doesn't know what she's talking about. I've been to Illegal Jacks. It's not expensive so that's OK but it's rather generic food. They are not even trying to put in authentic flavours. Might as well go eat at Chiquitos. Maybe she should have written her review differently - you say you love Mexican food but like Illegal Jacks - that doesn't make sense. Don't go to Mexico you would find real Mexican food disgusting. You'd have to eat around beach resort areas that make food for foreigners. Certainly the owner's response is perhaps even harsher.

“Best burrito I've ever had”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Whoever said this is the worst burrito they've ever had either:
1. Has no taste.
2. Cannot speak English
3. Was in an extremely grumpy mood at time of eating / writing.

Please understand , this place serves some of the most wholesome, authentic and tasty mexican food I've had the pleasure of eating. I recommend the carnitas burrito and the soft tacos. My girlfriend has had the quesadilla, and while this is fine, she also prefers the burrito.

A must visit cantina!!!

“Fresh and tasty...”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

Popped in for lunch after reading TA reviews, had the 3 soft tacos with chicken, beef and carnitas- hot salsa hits the mark. Good service and quality ingredients definitely makes Los Cardos a winner !!
