Always come here when passing through, the food has always been good when I've gone and the services are always keen to help. The food comes quick and there's plenty of selection as to what you can have! Best place to go in the services as there's often not a long wait unlike McDonalds and so you can get you food, eat, enjoy and then get back on the road.

It is located in Cambridge services on A14 and I visit this place regularly. Staff are very welcoming. Nachos are my usual choice.

It's only the second purchase from El Mexicana take away although I have visited these services many times before.

Just like my first visit, I was impressed with the food, although it's not something you'd be happy with in a restaurant, it is well above average for a take away outlet.

The floured tortilla tastes fresh as do the ingredients, which you can see all the components before being put together unlike McDonald's. I had the shredded chilli beef, with rice, refried beans, veg, onions and the spicy chipolet salsa. The burrito is then wrapped up and wrapped in tinfoil. I also had a portion of potato wedges, although nothing out the ordinary, were pretty good.

I didn't find it difficult to eat, peel a bit of foil off for every bite (which is the proper way to eat them!) keeps it held together nicely.

The only bad point, is the price. A bottle of Pepsi, a large burrito and a small portion of wedges was just under £10!!! They are champaign prices at a lemonade venue, slightly disappointed with that.

Staying in the Days Inn at Boxworth services, the meal options are limited to the various fast food restaurants in the Service Station. I opted to try El Mexicana.
Chose a chilli beef burrito - a large flour tortilla crammed with rice, salad, chilli, salsa, and almost impossible to eat - it was really just a spicy mish mash of different flavoured goo, and all fell apart in my hands.. also got a side order of sweet potato fries just because i had never had them before, and as soon as i ate the first one i realised why...
If your after fast food and dont want McDonalds or KFC i suppose its a change, but i wouldnt rush back.
