    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!

    Great spot for a cerveza and some guacamole and tortillas. The soft tacos are delicious if sometimes a bit wet & soggy

    Over rated... Food was just okay

    Our order was forgotten for some reason but the place is cool and the food is tasty.

    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!

  • Sachin S.

    Great Mexican street food. They really capture the essence of this.

    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.

    Food is ok. Been a bit disappointed with the last few meals I've had there. There are better Mexican options in Sydney now

    For a healthier option get the Taco with lettuce leaf. The burger was amazing so much flavor.

    Order a prawn taco and a jalapeño margarita. 🍤🍸

    Food and drinks were great, nice selection of tacos, but I felt everything was overpriced given how small the portions/drinks are.

    Churros no longer on the board. But they still serve it.

    Nick Fong · December 23, 2014

    Melt in mouth Hot dogs, tacos and a good variety of Mexican beers.

    Best classic margheritas in Sydney. Extensively tested.

    Pork taco was great.

    Food is good and cheap, music is awesome. Place is always packed

    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.

    Andre S · August 15, 2014
  • Jason D.

    Big fan of the chorizo quesadilla. Small portions so order a carne asada taco to go along with it!

    Jason Denny · August 15, 2014

    The casual, slightly cheesy Mexican atmosphere.

    That fluffy cheese on the hot dog is amazing! And it's a big meal.

    Worst tacos in Sydney. Wet and soggy, they fall apart. Go visit Alvarez & Sons in Tios up the street. THAT is great mexican.

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

    elliott bledsoe · March 16, 2014
  • Shinta B.

    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.

    Pork taco is the bomb!

    Abirami Shavani · January 20, 2014

    Try the fish taco, jalapeño margarita and chorizo quesadilla. The churros are good for sharing (caramel sauce > choc sauce)

    Nags · December 8, 2013

    Overrated - tacos were messy and disappointing & the place seems grungy

    Caroline Ngo · October 8, 2013
  • Jarrett J.

    Roll the dice... Get the SECRET TACO!

    Jarrett Jeppesen · August 15, 2013
  • Gavin B.

    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!

    Gavin B · August 2, 2013
  • David R.

    Rudest waiter ever, 5$ for a tiny taco, there's no sense of Mexican at all

    Get the hot dog, but minus the bun and eat everything with a fork. Delicious

    Place was busy and staff ignored us so we left.

    Ask for double guac instead of getting the salsa.

    Howard T · November 3, 2012
  • Howard T.

    You can get take away here and take it across the road to button bar.

    The jalapeno margarita is intense and crazy in the best way possible. Two words: do it!

    Karin Chiu · September 28, 2012
  • Rodrigo M.

    Tried twice, didn't like it. Under seasoned food and flavorless 'hot' sauces. I'm mexican and food doesn't really taste authentic. Sadly I was disappointed :(

    Rodrigo Martinez · September 16, 2012
  • Matt K.
