Chiquitos - Ashton Moss Leisure Park
Member Name: NicoleFury
Advantages: mexican food, good kids meals
Disadvantages: tiny adult portions, cold dining room
2 adults and 2 children visited Chiquitos on the basis that we had never been there before, and I have visited a Chiquitos in Birmingham since.
Chiquitos serves Mexican food ranging from burritos to nachos, with a few plainer dishes inbetweener to satisfy appetites that prefer plainer food.
On arrival we were warmly greeted and placed on a corner table with comfortable sofa type seats.
Although it was very cold outside, the air conditioning units were on, making the dining space incredibly cold.
However the kids were given activity packs which included stickers and crayons which kept them entertained while we were waiting for the food.
The kids chose to eat off the kids menu, which included a main meal, drink and a dessert for £4.99. Both kids had the burger with chips, with a small orange each. The drinks for the kids are VERY small so if you are on a budget, get them to drink slowly!
The kids meals are absolutely fantastic, and I tip my hat to them. The portion sizes are very good, with the youngest struggling to eat all of his and the always hungry older child thoroughly satisfied for once!
The kids followed up their meals with desserts, one having the warm chocolate brownie which looked delicious, and the other having cookie cup ice cream which looked equally as good.
However, the adults meals are disappointing in terms of portion size.
I had the Taco Tapas Tray which had 3 dishes of various fillings, along with 4 tortillas to spoon the fillings into. The whole dish looks great on the plate. The dishes are incredibly shallow, and there is very little food on offer here. The second adult meal was a cheese burger, which in all honestly was only marginally bigger than the kids portion, in fact we agreed that we would have been better off having a kids meal each ourselves!
While the kids went away full, we left feeling like we hadn't eaten and ended up eating another meal at home.
On the Saturday that we went there were no valid offers or vouchers, and the meal came to £35. It seemed quite pricey for a meal that failed to leave the adults satisfied.
Summary: Great for kids, average for adults
