    The tacos might be what gets you in the door (try a secret taco!) and the hot dog may be deliciously cheesy, but the churros are what brings it home!

    Australia doesn't do Mexican as well as it does other cuisines. That being said, the food here isn't bad and gives you a half decent taco. The Chipotle Fries are the bomb.

    Fish Torta was lovely, if a little mild. Disappointed in my $15 cocktail though. You expect a full cup (cup is already small) my cup was only half full (frozen margarita) and passed over in a hurry!

    Can't go past the tacos. Pork, fish & tofu are my faves. Wash down with several jalapeño margaritas.

    The Cubano is an insult to the great sandwich tradition. Like something you threw together in college after consuming vast quantities of narcotics of choice. Rubbish.

    The only reasons to come here is the cheap tacos. Overall I'm not a fan of the vibe or atmosphere but id come here just for the cheap food.

    Try the El Loco salad, a towering heap of chilli tofu topped with queso fresca cheese and tortilla chips slivers.

    I think this place is over rated. Music is too loud, no seat available. Tacos are cheap at $5 but not tasty. Drinks are mediocre. Maybe it's popular because it seems like lots hipsters come here.

    While the food is fantastic I felt more than slightly ripped off on my Lagerita. Supposed to be topped with Corona, but with all that ice, there couldn't have been more than 75mL of it!
