Decided to listen to friends of ours and try Cheachies! We were not disappointed. Special was Taco Dorados with refried beans. I added a Strawberry Daiquiri to complete the meal. This hidden gem is worth your time and we will most certainly return.

It was reasonably priced. Not your typical California Mexican Food. Really authentic food made with fresh ingredients. Large portions. The staff were great and entertaining. Fast friendly service. You can get take out as well if you don't feel like dining in.

Stopped in for dinner at what is touted as the #8 rated Mexican restaurant in Canada. What a disappointment ... no wine!!! Everyone at our table rated their meal as mediocre ... at best. Would not return.

Other than a light sprinkle of salt on my fries ( I like salt on my fries but glad they don't salt them because hubby doesn't) I never have to season anything. So much flavour bursting out in every bite! Best steak tacos I've ever had. This is not fast food but SO worth the wait. (I love a great... More

I do not usually leave reviews on restaurants but this one was just too deserving. The food was fantastic and the staff was so friendly. It was so well decorated and had such an authentic feel. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone I know. I can not wait to come back. 5 stars for sure.

Nice, clean & friendly. Great sauces and tasty corn tortillas. Would love to have more authentic Mexican style options because I'm sure they will be fabulous!

We were greeted by a friendly waiter, and ordered burgers and a chicken chimichanga. The burgers were very good. The chimichanga was a little bland, but not so bad. We were the only customers on a Sunday night, but 3 more families arrived later on, so the atmosphere was very quiet. The place is a little bit hard to find.

My family goes to this restaurant any time we are in Halifax and make special trips to get our cravings to stop. I crave the steak tacos with cheachie chips and my husband and son gets the Earl burger, my daughter gets the poutine. We are hooked.
