We visited last Saturday and as normal the food was fantastic. Great atmosphere, very quick service, food was hot and delicious. The crunchie cheesecake was the perfect way to finish the meal off. 5 star service as always

And of course the food is reheated- do you think customers want to... More

Me and my mum won a superb competition on their Facebook page; my mum had never eaten Mexican before... We won 2 x starters, a half lager each and 2 mains... PLUS they gave us our desserts for free! I can't thank the lovely staff enough, especially the Boss (Jason) for being so so lovely in offering this food, and... 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

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
