Mucho's had a large menu selection. The service was quick considering the number of people in the restaurant on a Friday evening. The chili cheese bread I has very good. The beef enchilada came in two small servings and was very hot - good. It lacked flavour though. I do need to remember though that I am not in Mexico... More

One of my favourite regular restaurants! Every Monday and Wednesday they have 10.90 combos and they are amazing! Great cheap mexican food although sometimes the service runs a little slow - so try to go earlier in the evening. Great for vegetarians and vegans as well!

Our party of four visited for dinner on a busy Thursday night. My expectations weren't very high after reading some of the reviews and upon receiving the meals I was very impressed with the flavours. The negative reviews about the service are very true. For a busy Thursday night with 30+ guests I was surprised to see only 2 wait... More

On a whim, It's very quaint and tightly packed seating. But this adds to the places feeling and vibe. It's a great vibe, and we had the most friendly and humerus waiter. The young lady was amazing, knew her menu inside out. My partner and I first ordered a half plate of nachos worn the works, it was amazing. Then... More

A small cosy restaurant that was very busy for a Monday night, open from 5.30pm daily, so no downtime it seems. People just kept coming in through the front door all evening, and tables outside on footpath were full too. Great colourful mexican decor, dark in some areas but candles are romantic. Posters, signs, hanging textiles and Aztec statuettes and... More

Meals are hot, tasty and nutritious. On the down side the restaurant itself is crowded, dark and a little noisy, but we were there on a Saturday night.

We're very busy people that travel a fair bit. We called in late, just before close, but that was no trouble. Quickly directed to a seat by the friendly staff, drinks came promptly and the meal was just as quick, No mess, no fuss, great service and a good meal to boot. If you want quick service with enchiladas to... More
