Having worked in restaurants in Mexico, America, London and cruise ships - I always wanted to sell my own food, sharing the great flavours of Mexico. We wanted to create something different, a casual, relaxed dining experience that's focused on great food and excellent customer service. We love what we do and think it shows!
Cesar, Mexican Kitchen
The Mexican Kitchen started in 2009 with a food truck selling street food, just doing a few hours a week
We quickly built a great reputation and queues of customers would regularly wait for their made to order meals
In 2016 we decided to open a restaurant keeping true to our original street food concept, simple but delicious and made fresh everyday
We focus on flavours and fresh ingredients, everything is made on site. We use specialist suppliers for our chillies, spices, meat and produce.
We have a simple menu using authentic flavours inspired by the street food vendors across Mexico.
Customers can choose from Nachos, Tacos, Burritos, Quesadillas and Enchiladas with their choice of filling, plus a range of picky bits.
Desserts are also home made, with chocolate chilli tart and tequila and lime cheesecake always on the menu but keep an eye out for our specials too.
Our food is great for anyone with gluten / dairy intolerances and our vegetarian options are also vegan. Let us know if you have any special dietary requirements and we can provide you with further details.
We have a wonderful wine list supplied by the experts from our wine supplier, Mexican bottled beers, a great range of tequilas and tequila-based cocktails.
We are Mexican and passionate about tequila, the warmth and fire of a good tequila is a rich and unique experience, traditionally sipped during a meal and best served neat or over ice.
Make sure you look out for any cocktail or tequila specials too.
We also have a range of soft drinks including made to order mocktails and our deliciously refreshing ‘Jarritos’ range - traditional Mexican sodas, choose from a variety of flavours including guava, mandarin, grapefruit, lime, pineapple and mango.
This place was recommended and it did not disappoint. Did wait long for food and the food was amazing! The service was fantastic too. Will defiantly be coming back here very soon!
Lovely restaurant. The owner is amazing. He let us try cactus and his cheesecake. We loved our starters: nachos con carne and bean chilli dip. Our mains were amazing too. We had enchiladas and quesadillas. Both awesome flavours. Everything is home made from the chorizo to the ice cream. If you love Mexican food you will love it here. We WILL be back.
This was our second visit and we were amazed how much it had improved - the choices were great, service was good and the surroundings a authentic - wouldn't even know you were near Wickford! wonderful evening and hope to go again soon.
