    First time I've tried a michelada, effectively a Bloody Mary meets a beer and quite delicious too

    Beef Nachos, pork tacos and Chicharon are excellent for sharing. Try some mezcal, it'll complement the ginger beer cocktail. Get there early to get a table, otherwise be a hawk.

    It was good, cause Royden said it would be. Ask for the popcorn. Royden dogged it like a fairy and we got angry about it

    Great spot to grab some fresh made, really good tequila drinks. Ask the bartender to make you something special and you won't be disappointed.

    A Mexican bar manned by a whole load of guys who have never been to Mexico, but don't hold that against them, the margaritas are pitch-perfect and the tacos tantalisingly tasty. Ole!

    Asked the bartender for a recommendation and he suggested El Roberto Especial. It tastes fantastic, like something I would make at home in the blender, but with a healthy dose of tequila!

    This is a bar where you can actually meet your hangover before you’ve even had a drink. Chances are it’ll be hanging out over by the arm-wrestling bench downing a tinny crusted with salt & lime. Read more
