We'd previously been to this restaurant when it was under another name and we were hoping they'd finally got it right. But... The parking. The gate was closed!!! The table cloth was wet where they'd cleaned the table and not let it dry properly. The soft drink was served warm. The starters, "Chillies Rellenos", basically, four jalepino peppers on a bed of lettuce, and that was it...very boring. It needed a dip, either salsa, sour cream or guacamole. The main course eventually arrived after about half an hour with no explanation as to why it was so long... "Smoked Barbecue Baby Back Ribs" I don't think the poor animal had any meat on it, it was just a rack of fat. As for the chips, well I think they were just shown the deep fat fryer, because they were under cooked. My friend had a "chicken Chimichanga" which was more like a meal from the frozen section of the supermarket. The live music was ok, but if you like musicians smoking whilst you're eating then you'll love this place. Although the staff were friendly, the atmosphere was not welcoming and we couldn't get out of there quick enough. The experience for us was not good and we'll now be travelling to Milton Keynes where the Mexican there is really good.
