    Steak Burrito all the way, this place is brilliant, can't believe I've never been there before. Well prepared delicious food, mouthwatering as I type can't wait to go back!

    Excellent burritos with a great choice of fillings. The hot salsa is exactly that, so there's no need to use one of the well-selected hot sauces on offer. Great beers available as well.

    Tasty fajitas, but really large portions in my opinion. Which is quite nice, because you get a lot of value for your money.

    Have yet to have a good burrito from here. Disappointed after three visits. Beans, meat and sauce all taste the same. Some variety and texture would be a welcome change. Maybe next time.

    I swear it will be my last time going there because of that east European irrespective waitress on the tell. the way she's asking on what to add on the top of my order was too rude.

    Grab a chilli bowl, but instead of just rice as the base, get them to throw in some pinto beans too! Seriously good. And the chilli really is top notch.

    If you've been to Mad Mex in Australia you know the deal. Otherwise be prepared for filling mexican food, finger licking and great service. Their sour cream is a perfect mix of smooth and creamy.

    Inexplicably good reviews... Bland, average Tex-Mex style food, unimpressive. Much better food at Los Cardos on Leith Walk, but not the same sit-in options.

    Haggis Burritos are fantastic. They also do a great lunch deal for a fiver. Better value than the full size!

    Go for the lunch special: regular burrito and a drink for around £5-5.50. Be brave and try a haggis burrito! You won't regret it.

    Surprisingly good and I love that you can add your own chilli sauce. Best go with close friends though as it can get messy...

    For numbers of 4 or more it's well worth booking a booth or table via Twiiter. @illegaljacks often goes the extra mile and prints an appropriate personalised table reservation.

    Always check to see if they have Carnitas. If they do, pounce and order as much as you can.

    It's so difficult to find great Tex-Mex this side of the Atlantic. Illegal Jack's, however, has cracked the code. Great burritos, and huge too, so go hungry. Loving the Brew Dog as well!

    Yes, you can get a good burrito in Scotland! They're huge! Also worth checking out the chilli. A great hangover cure I'm told...
