Attended here for lunch earlier in May. It was so good we are definitely going again. The lunchtime menu is excellent value, with two courses for less than £10. I had the Nachos for starters - massive serving, too much really. Then had the fajitas for main. Again, very generous sizes. Would definitely recommend this restaurant

Friendly staff and nice atmosphere, but the food was bland. The nachos were soggy, the salsa just tasted like chopped tomatoes from a tin, the burrito was wrapped like no burrito I've ever seen, the beef filling tasted a bit burnt but certainly not Mexican. My wife says the guacamole was good though. :) Overall it was a disappointment. They... More

The cowboy hats were fun to put on. It was my first tequila shot which i loved. My friend enjoyed his birthday very much and the food was really nice.

Located along Canterbury's busy high-street among a selection of restaurants is Tacos Locos and my advice to you is ignore them and head for this place. The food selection was great, the drinks menu equally huge and the offers and deals are proper, genuine practical deals. We had the 2 course, 1 drink £9.95 lunch time deal and were properly... More

Stopped for a quick lunch. It was relatively quiet so service was quick. The food was all lovely, nice choice, good flavour and the waiter / barman was polite and chatty. I had a cocktail and it was good too. Good lunch time deal, good value. I would definitely come again. I'll try and evening next time.

Lovely food and we were the first in there as it was a meal before a show. Even though we initially were the only customers our food was on the table so quick, probably a bit too quick as we had time to kill but even so it was lovely. Got to wear the Mexican hat which is on every... More

We visited for birthday celebrations on a Saturday lunchtime and were not disappointed. The food was lovely and the staff brilliant, such good fun and the music, though slightly cheesy, added to what is meant to be a fun casual environment. The cocktails were lovely as were the tequila shots!! Would definitely come again just for the atmosphere if nothing... More

This was very disappointing. I was expecting exciting tacos, but what we got were soggy tacos with cold cheese, dry rock-hard steak. Maybe the meal was so bad because there were 20 of us, but we had pre-booked the table. They should have known how many were coming and when. Never again!

This is a party place to go to with your friends, not a quality restaurant with good food. I went on a Saturday night & it was full of large groups; the cheesey "girls' night out" type music was blaring out, the food was below average and the cocktail menu doubles up as a placemat so it is constantly on...
