“ By a twist of fajita”

Written on: 23/01/2019 by AWC71 (4 reviews written)

Chiquito Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent What is it that annoys us so much about theme restaurants? Apart, of course, that they think it's OK to charge £3.99 for a can of diet coke. We tend to associate them with all things corporate and bland, walk in through the door and you could be anywhere; Hanley or Havana, it hardly matters. Perhaps we should get over ourselves, quirky and niche is all well and good, until it tips over into pretension. Walk in through the door of the Hanley branch and you… Read Full Review

“nottingham chiquitos”

Written on: 05/03/2016 by Watkins23 (1 review written)

The waitress was rude and forceful. The food was at a low standard and the minute we put down our knifes and forks the waitress got our bill. The bill was a shocking price. No wonder the waiter was barking at us to have another drink! £20 for 3 drinks and £38 for 2 meals. Shocking… Read Full Review

“Worst experience ever”

Written on: 18/05/2015 by Emilyg16 (1 review written)

My overall experience at Chiquititos was atrocious. Now on my summer holiday back from college and seeing my friends for the first time in months I was shocked to learn that after ordering alcoholic drinks, and verifying we were over 18, we were given Virgin drinks and charged for alcoholic drinks. This authority proves the the cowardliness of the staff to not admit to giving us nonalcoholic drinks for not believing us in being over age even after a few of us showed school Ids and American… Read Full Review

“Not worth the money”

Service was good. Food was ok but not worth the money. I have had Enchilladas before and this tasted nothing like it. Honestly I could have made better. Should have gone to Italia Bella… Read Full Review

“Terrible”

Written on: 19/04/2014 by Sloanrm372 (1 review written)

Went to this restaurant for dinner as a party of 4 . Never again. The restaurant wasn't very busy but had to wait ages to be served. Finally ordered our food and still after 40 minutes nothing arrived. We complained to the waiter who said it will be out in a minute. Still after 10 minutes nothing. My husband complained to the manageress and her attitude was disgusting. After 5 minutes the food arrived and was cold sent both adult meals back. The replacements were just as bad. The assistant… Read Full Review

“the best experience”

Written on: 04/12/2013

me and my family went for a week end out and ended up dining at Chiquitos(Durham city center), and we thought the food was amazing . We had to wait 25 mins due to not booking before hand but to us this was the only fault. The staff were very polite and food was lovely some of the best I have ever had! As soon as we walked into the restraunt, the staff greeted us with a bowl of salty popcorn with a twist. Our family really enjoyed this service!… Read Full Review

“DO NOT EAT AT CROYDON PURLEY WAY”

Written on: 22/09/2013 by vickybryce (1 review written)

We went and spent £50 last night at Chiquitos at Croydon Purley Way and can honestly say it was the worst ever restaurant we have ever been to. We were given a complimentary dish of salty popcorn, no doubt to make us thirsty and order more overpriced drinks. Then they got half of our order wrong and expected my boyfriend to start eating his before my food arrived, so he requested to have his food brought at the same time and when the correct food did arrive, when his came out again it was… Read Full Review

“Noisy and cramped but the service and food was ok”

Written on: 19/06/2013 by sense4 (16 reviews written)

We went along for fathers day for a meal without booking. We were seated within 15 minutes but the area was a little cramped. It was very noisy but then it was busy and full of kids, but the music was way too loud too making it hard to make conversation. To be fair we all enjoyed the food and the final bill was pretty low due to their Dads Eat Free offer. I would try it again when a little less busy… Read Full Review

“I got food poisoning at Cheltenham Brewery restaurant!”

Written on: 06/05/2013 by anitahall45 (1 review written)

The portions were small and over priced. Hardly any filling to speak of. The service was slow. I had the veggie chilli quesadillas. An hour later in the cinema I started having abdominal pain. A couple of hours later I was vomiting. The next morning I was still being sick but then had the trots all day. Worst case of foodpfood poisoning I've had in this country. I won't be going back and advise you to eat elsewhere too!… Read Full Review

“Chiquito tees-side park”

Written on: 28/03/2013 by J9004434 (1 review written)

Walked in for the lunch time deal and noticed the reastaurant was only half full with plenty of empty tables. Waited 5 minutes to be acknowledged and was told there was a 10-15 minute wait just to be seated and were shown to the bar area when we noticed there were approx 5 other groups of people also waiting to be seated. Then had to wait another 10 minutes to be served drinks from the bar to drink while we were waiting. We weren't offered menus. The lady who was behind the bar was dressed as… Read Full Review

“Longest Wait Ever”

Written on: 15/01/2013 by mikbam (1 review written)

Went to Chiquitos Tower Park Poole on Saturday 12 January. To be fair we were advised by the waiter that there was a slight delay in serving food. What he really meant was a 1-hour wait between taking the order and serving. This meant we ended up paying for additional drinks just to get us through the delay. When the food arrived it was barely warm, so I sent it back. Again, to be fair they replaced the servings quickly and the food was very good, very tasty. We then ordered desserts and were… Read Full Review

“Clifton moor york / Mexican never !!! ”

Written on: 22/12/2012

Having lived and worked in Mexico I was extreamly surprised when greeted by the waitress branding "Mexican popcorn" this was basicly very very salty popcorn which is obviously a cheaper option than the tortilla chips they once served The meal portions were so small and did not resemble in taste any Mexican meal I have ever eaten under the same description Coldslaw is a cheap side order so why is there so little? All in all very pricy tasteless small expensive and what was the popcorn all… Read Full Review

“not mexican food!”

Written on: 24/11/2012 by weescottishlady (1 review written)

went to the one in leeds by IKEA - not really awful - nice waiter, reasonably quick. Main objection same as others - fajitas to assemble with no cutlery! also sugar added to lots of the food - my salad had this weird sweet dressing on it and the quesadillas had a bean mixture in it that was also unpleasantly sugary - they must chuck it in to bulk out the stuff and appease western taste buds. What about some chillis, coriander, limes - all the wonderful things that make mexican food zingy. not… Read Full Review

“Chiquito tees-side park ”

Written on: 20/11/2012 by Kjones84 (1 review written)

Poor service at best! Quiet Tuesday night and no service, sat for over a hour waiting for our food, had to wait over 20 min for our drinks. Asked for a small spoon to feed my baby while we were waiting, had to ask several times until eventually my partner went and found one himself. To sum it all up, average food with extremely poor waiting staff, never again!!… Read Full Review
