This place is great if you are after cheap, fast, basic Mexican food. Isnt amazing by any stretch but does the job. Great location and views. Nice and cheap too. An easy pleaser for what it is.

Was pretty average. The Burritos was of a big size however didnt taste much. The filling was mixed so every bite you would eat just the chicken, just the beans, just the rice. The rice was well under cooked. Will I ever go back, maybe,...More

We went on taco Tuesday and they were really cheap. The food is nothing special but where it is located makes for a better dining experience. The meat seems to be off cuts and kinda chewy while the taco meat tasted exactly like spaghetti sauce...More

Went here for a quick evening meal and I wouldn't rush back here in a hurry. The food was distinctly average and the place looked as though it had seen better days.

Been here a number of times over the years, and I really look forward to each visit. On the surface, nothing too special, but some of the best Tex Mex I have had outside of the US, and great margs to boot. Not quite to...More

As a chain restaurant, you normally know what to expect as far as good and service go. While the food is good, the time we visited the Quay Street branch, it was hard to find a table and there was a lot of rubbish and...More

Nice place for hanging out with friends. The atmosphere reminds a lot of a fast food restaurant, and that's what I liked less, because the food on the other hand was very enjoyable. If you want to eat something mexican quickly, that's the place. If...More

We stopped for a nice snack of nacho chips and guacamole and salsa. It was only $5.00 during happy hour. Sat out watching the harbour, cold drinks and chips.

American-style fast-casual Mexican restaurant with a view of the awesome Auckland harbour. Choose from burritos, quesadillas, nachos, tacos and taco salads and add a frosty margarita or an ice cold beer. We've got traditional black or pinto beans, fresh grilled chicken or sweet roasted pork carnitas, and hand-chopped salsas. Locally made corn tortillas meet the needs of the gluten-free crowd, and plenty of veggie options for those so inclined.
