Nearly two years ago my brother and I were moving my wifes and my things up to middlewich from West London, we ordered a takeaway from chimichangas excitedly after finding it online. The food all seemed to be re-heated food, the wraps were tough and tasteless and the meat was not tender at all, as well as all veg being... More

The food served here is simply divine. I've eaten here on many occasions, birthdays, dates and so on. I'm a huge snob when it comes to food, but this restaurant has never ever let me down. I'm the first person to embarrass my friends when something's not right, but never have I complained about the food here. The location is... More

This visit was my first ever Mexican meal...and it was exceptional. On arrival the atmosphere was buzzing, decor was well thought out, the staff were all really warm and inviting....and the food was delicious! The burritos were huge and really tasty and presentation was perfect. I managed to squeeze in a dessert too...again delicious. Lucky for me...it's just ten minutes... More

Visited during a week night with friends. I had fajitas, chicken was poor quality and looked like leftovers from a Sunday roast. The rice was served with had a brown crusty covering, which Iooked very unappetising. The restaurant also turned away customers coming in at 8pm because the kitchen had closed. Toilets were also very tired and dirty.

pedro p, Owner at Chimichangos, responded to this review

The chicken is cooked fresh and is cooked in mole paste- god knows what you have for a Sunday lunch. The rice is yellow-perhaps you got confused with refried beans. Yes we occasionally stop food at 8pm if its not busy- not that its got anything to do with you- why weren't you chatting to friends instead of earwigging nosey... More

How this restaurant gets the reviews it does, I have no idea. The food is appalling, my friends refried bean dish looked inedible and the rest of the food was both cold and too salty. Awfully expensive too, for the small and tasteless portions you get. I remember trying to book this restaurant around Christmas and getting a text simply... More

The food was amazing, nachos to start and they were a lovely big portion (not Like the small portions from other places) For mains me and partner had BBQ pulled pork enchiladas which was on point. It was so filling, they didn't hold back on the pulled pork. Had potatoes and rice with it. Our friends had burritos and a... More

Description
THE journey from Wheelock Street to Chimichangos may just be a few steps. But as soon as you walk through the door it feels like a voyage of discovery. Shades of orange and subtle lighting lend an ambience to the restaurant. Above the bar is a painted landscape filled with cacti and sombreros playfully hang from walls and chairs. It is the kind of scene you might expect from an inner-city restaurant but this is Middlewich. Chimichangos officially opened at the weekend and the Guardian was invited to give it a try. Owner Jason Tanfield has transformed Kandi’s Steakhouse into a Mexican restaurant. The 36-year-old said he identified a gap in the market as there is only a handful of independent venues in Cheshire where you can enjoy Mexican food. Jason is also drawing on his experience as he used to be the head chef at a restaurant called The Three Amigos in Exeter about 15 years ago. My partner and I were promptly seated and were struck by how attentive and polite the staff were. We were soon sipping Coronas and tucking into some tortilla chips with delicious home-made salsa. To start we had creamy garlic mushrooms in a tortilla shell and jalapenos stuffed with soft cheese which were both perfect. We followed this up with vegetable fajitas and chicken fajitas respectively - and this is where Chimichangos showed its edge over some of its competitors. Firstly you can choose how hot you want your food to be which is sure to be welcomed by both spice addicts and those who like things mild. The portions were also incredibly generous which tends to be unusual for Mexican restaurants. There genuinely was not much to criticise but it would have been nice to have some cheese with the fajitas but im told they do normally and had forgot!! The service was prompt and my partner, a vegetarian, was impressed with the range of suitable dishes. Credit also goes to Jason for making good use of the limited space available. At the time of our visit a large group for a 21st birthday celebration was being accomodated. We were defeated by the time it came to dessert but suffice to say a taste of Mexico is on offer for those with a sweet tooth. The menu even includes a banana wrapped in a tortilla and dusted with cinnamon called a chimichanga. The whole experience was fantastic and comes highly recommended.NOTE:This was a secret food critic from the guardian newspaper just search GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER MIDDLEWICH
