2 for 1 at Chiquito - Colchester

Chiquito is the UK's biggest and most loved Tex-Mex restaurant, meaning that they know a thing or two about fabulous food and drink, and they provide one and all with a range of Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes that have been making mouths water for over 25 years.

From mild to wild, Chiquito offer up a host of options that are sure to tantalise many a taste bud! Fancy some sizzling fajitas, bursting burritos, scrumptious cheese burgers, or tender fall-off-the-bone ribs? Then you’ve certainly come to the right place.

Chiquito will see you soon, or as they say in Mexico, ¡hasta luego!

  • Kerri said: "Not 3rd Time Lucky
    Our 3rd ever visit to Chiquitos, 2nd time at Colchester. We said last time we wouldn't return after an awful visit where we were left waiting over an hour for our food with no apology, that was 2 years ago so thought we'd give it another try using the taste card! Nothing has changed, zero customer service skills, felt like such an inconvenience even asking for some crayons. The restaurant wasn't even busy, I've only given 2* as the food was actually nice but my sizzling steak came out with the rest of everyone's food but I then sat waiting 15 minutes for my tortillas that they'd forgot to bring after having to remind them, everyone else had almost finished before I'd started. I promise I won't return again, such a shame as it has so much potential, a little smile & good customer service is everything in my opinion "

    We’ve used Chiquitos quite a lot last night was a new experience! Service was very slow, over charged on cocktails & when food eventually arrived the mains were cold. Think the manager lady was extremely rude & no apology for overcharging & had to remind her she’d said our mains would be free. Then I showed my tastecard & got tutted at!! Shame coz it means we Won’t be returning . "
