    Excellent value with the Fork offer. Generous serves, tasty food. We were seated under 2 speakers so music was a touch too loud with the bare floors & made conversation difficult across our group of 6 people.

    Not what it used to be... Tacos were good, but rice bowl was very average with cold, stuck-together rice. Service was a bit chaotic having multiple servers and no communication between each waiter. Wouldn't go back in a hurry

    We ate vegan and went with the ‘chef choice’ for $37- pp and it was a great option every dish was incredibly tasty we were very happy. Definitely would recommend for vegans.

    Lovely food and friendly staff. Dropped in for an early dinner mid week all very easy to book. We had the taco selection which were served with interesting different salads. Recommended.

    The food was really interesting and beautifully presented. The staff were so busy but this did not stop them being really polite and professional. Definitely going again.

    We had a 7.30 booking made on line. Pretty sure they didn’t have it registered as we finally got seated at 815pm!!! Sadly we had an event to attend at 9, so even though our food was really quick we had to eat it really fast. We were actually looking forward to the feed me option on the menu but there was just no time. I did feel for the manager as he tried hard and did give us a free drink. I’d advise to ring and book and not do it on line

    Haven’t been here in ages but use to be a regular years ago when it was near flinders hospital (amazing then) been a few times in north Adelaide but this time was honestly terrible! Not sure if management/ ownership changed. People where complaining either side of us. Such a shame considering it was was once amazing Mexican food and service.

    Delicious food! Waiters/waitresses were attentive, we didn't need to wait for ages until someone came to our table, and then they kept coming back to clear plates and ask if we needed anything else.Good ambience. We had the "feed me" option and were well fed! The food also came out quicker than expected. Very happy with our experience

    We used to love this restaurant. The food is still great, but the service was terrible. We waited over 40 minutes for our drinks, they got our order confused (on several occasions) and kept telling us it was on its way. We waited over an hour for food. Our bill was incorrect. We were almost touching elbows with the people on the table next to us despite the new restrictions requiring 4m2 per person, and the restaurant was full of people. So disappointing to see the changes in our old favourite restaurant.

    First time we've been back since they reopened and we used to love this place. Friday night just after lockdown had been lifted. It was packed. Crowd seemed older than we remembered. Didn't recognise any of the staff and apart from one switched on girl, most seemed disinterested. Saw a guy behind the bar spend at least 15mins drying one glass. Main course took a long time to come out and a lot of patrons seemed to waiting for food rather than eating it. Staff weren't clearing empty plates and the food seemed to be brought out only a single plate at a time. Food was still as tasty as ever with decent sized portions although our elote (corn on the cob) was only lukewarm and my ribs were hard work with not much meat on them. Saw the cooking team being read the riot act at one stage. I would return and give them a second chance.

    We had an hour and a half sitting for dinner at Lucky Lupitas. After one hour we had all only been given 1 beer each. Our glasses were empty and we hadn’t been given any of our ‘feed us’ menu foods. After letting the waitress know that we only had half an hour left before we needed to leave, pretty much all of our food came out at once and we had to rush to eat it all.

    The friendly manager is always very welcoming. He even gave us a complimentary dish. However, the other woman with glasses could improve in her attitude. She was very cold and abrupt when I paid the bill. Overall, the food was tasty and we would rate it second after Hispanic Mechanic.
