Really disappointed with our first visit here after seeing the many positive reviews online. You can just from the menu it’s authentic, however the chicken in our tacos was dry and, whilst the tacos still tasted nice and the tortillas were clearly homemade, the burritos...had no guac, pico de gallo, feta, salsa or coriander on. The only real plus side was the fries which were crispy and well seasoned. This was a massive disappointment and unfortunately we are now very reluctant to return.More

We were disappointed last summer when the small takeaway (with a few seats) seemed to have been replaced by a larger restaurant a few doors away and we didn't find the experience what it had been in the past. However, returning this week to see...the takeaway open, and with a couple of outside tables our expectations were more than exceeded. Chucho's tacos have always been some of the best I've had. I've travelled in Mexico and I live part-time in Los Angeles (which has amazing taco food trucks everywhere) so to think that a restaurant in Byker could surpass them, is a bit of a surprise. The tacos we had a few days ago, were easily the best I've had in the world. The tortilla tastes home-made and has a little crunch and bite to it, the beans they use on the chorizo and the black pudding tacos are full of taste and depth (not just a salty mess) and each taco has different seasonings to compliment the meat. We had the carnitas, chorizo and the black pudding. Fabulous and I'm going back this week.More

We ordered a variety of nachos here for take away (mix of three). First time ordering from here and it did not disappoint. All flavours were really unique and reasonably sized! I will definitely order from here again.

Had a really strong desire for a mexican whilst on a short break to Newcastle. Picked this place at random from the internet and ordered a taxi. When the tax driver found out where we were going, he told us that whilst he didn't know...the restaurant, he knew the area and advised us against going for a walk after our meal, telling us instead to wait inside until our taxi arrived to take us back. This worried us a little before we even got there. Taxi dropped us on one side of the building which is a take-a-away. Round the corner is the entrance to the restaurant. It is small, cosy and rustic. The menu is limited, but has a fair selection with some unusual toppings/fillings for the tacos. My hubby selected the 'Any 3 tacos' option and I opted for 2 differing Quesadillas. They provide several sauces that you may add yourself to suit your preference of spicyness. They also have a limited cocktail/wine menu. The food was excellent, albeit a little slow in arriving. From what I could gather, the tables either side of us got the wrong food, and I wonder with hindsight it they got each others - ours was fine. After our meal, we got a taxi back to our hotel and told the reception manager about it, and what the outbound taxi driver had told us. She said that the area wasn't that bad and we would have been perfectly safe. Would I go again? Hell Yes! The food was really good.More

First time dining here and will definitely return. Beef burrito was very tasty, the ingredients tasted very fresh. The food arrived quite quickly and lunchtime atmosphere was good. I loved the bright, colourful decorations too.
