I do not usually get enthused about fast food, but Mad Mex was different. My Naked Vegie Burrito was good. It had brown rice and black beans and was topped with fresh salad and guacamole. I asked for the hot salsa and I was surprised to find it really was HOT. The Pacifico Mexican beer went well with it, but... More

Presentation skills are lacking here. My vegetarian naked burrito tasted pretty good, but cold once crunchy lettuce was plonked onto the hot elements of rice and beans resulting in a tepid pile of food. Thankfully it was filling and fine.

The only Mexican takeaway place that I will ever go to! I have told so many people about Mad Mex, I am absolutely crazy about it. The guacamole is to die for. Very easy to vegan-ise things, for those that don't consume animal products.

Love this Mad mex, the guys who work there are lovely the place is always clean and the food is always good. Nothing like a burrito or nachos when you need a quick, easy, no fuss meal!

I went to the mad mex and southern cross station today (28/7/15) I understand that the establishment is a little take away fast food stand. But presentation is still important guys! I ordered 3 tacos none of them had the same amount of filling one didn't even have meat in it! Really poor effort

the food is tasty and reasonably healthy as you can choose what goes on or off it. The prices are a bit too high but nothing worth complaining about. definitely better eaten in than taken away, gets very soggy and the new paper takeaway containers they're using (for the naked burrito) sure don't help.

The fillings are super yum and fresh. I like that the menu gives kCals not that I really take note but it is nice having it. The staff in all the Mad Mex stores I have been to have all been, without fail, really friendly. When I went to Europe last year Mad Mex was the thing I missed the... More

Been to Mad Mex quite a few times now. It's good food and is generally tasty but it is over priced and gets cold and sloppy quuckly. You really need to eat it in store as take away week need a straw if over 10 minutes away. Always find the meat filings are not hot enough and their spiciest sauces... More
