I was not impressed with the food or menu @ this local Mex chain. As a pescatarian, (seafood only) there was no fish option -- ONLY calamari or prawn. And, I asked if I could get 2 tacos, 1 of each and told that was not an option. I think simply bad menu planning and customer service policy.

Hola Haljohal, Sorry to hear you were not impressed. We offer a Calamari and a ceviche (fish) options on the entree section and a Calamari and Prawn options on the taco section. We also offer a Prawn Fajitas and Calamari Salad. I think having 6 options for a Pescatarian is more than enough as most restaurants would only offer one... More

Went here with my husband on a very busy Saturday night. We were shown to a table and our drinks were bought to us quickly by a smiley waitress. We were given time to peruse the menu and once we had ordered our meals arrived in good time. The food was divine and the service was exceptional - drinks topped... More

It's sometimes daunting [particularly to a person of older - more time-tested tastebuds] to venture into a 'hidden treasure' not readily discernible from the street. But.. ah ha.. Once past the outdoor patio, which I will definitely enjoy next summer, we arrived into a gratifying atmosphere of people doing what people do best... enjoying themselves. This extended to the host... More

It was my partners and my own first trip to The Burrito Brothers franchise. We went to the Tauranga Location. Not immediately prominent,the restaurant is located down an alley off one of the main streets and is sort of underground. The ambiance is awesome and we really liked the candles nestled in alcoves in the wall. They have been left... More

While away on holiday this was the thing I was most excited about and it did not disappoint. It was a Wednesday night but the place was packed out! We were greeted by a friendly lady at the front and told there would be a 5 minute wait for a table. We waited at the bar and sipped on margaritas... More

On this occasion we have to say thanks to the wonderful Jana and our server (sorry didn't get her name, although hails from Mexico). Well done on continuing to provide great service and delicious food. It's hard to be this great for this long. Well... More

Took my grandson here for a night out on a Tuesday and enjoyed an excellent meal with great service and top atmosphere. Will be back to try out the cocktails. The menu was extensive and covered many great traditional Mexican foods. The corn toutillas where really tasty as was the refined beans. My grandson loved the cheesy dip with nachos.... More
