At the far side of Festival Leisure Park, Chiquito Basildon offers an unrivalled Mexican experience. Rustic décor and exotic dishes create a funky, family-friendly vibe.

Packed with authentic dishes from both sides of the border, the Chiquito menu captures the essence of all things Tex Mex. Start the fiesta with fully-loaded nachos or the soft taco sharer between a few amigos, before sampling the famous fajitas and burritos, or a classic chilli con carne. A take on the traditional Mexican market, the street food section of the menu features sweet chorizo croquettes, patatas bravas, and a flavour-packed Mexican frittata.

Family-friendly entertainment and a fun kids' menu evokes a vibrant atmosphere at Chiquito restaurant in Basildon. From the bar, a colourful selection of cocktails, mocktails, and tequilas will add a kick to any meal, whilst an extensive range of wines and beers are also on offer.

Basildon Chiquito has a buzzing ambience, and is just 9 minutes’ drive from Basildon Rail Station.

    The food was beautiful and really recommended but the wait was unacceptable for a Thursday night, arrived at 7pm and ate the main meal 2 hours later and had to wait 30 minutes for a diet Pepsi. However after speaking to the manager he did totally rectify the situation and took the price of the meals off the bill at my request and was very apologetic. Apparently they were short staffed, and I will be returning due to the lovely tasting food, and hopefully our bad experience was just a one off.

    Have been before and have always enjoyed the food, but was disappointed with the food on this visit. The bowl of sharing nachos was very small - not worth over £11. The hero burger was pretty small, and did not justify the name. The chicken fajita portion was very small, and not the usual juicy offering that we expected, and the portions of the accompniments were laughably small - not enough for the 3 wraps that came with the dish. The desserts also seem to have shrunk. It seems that some kind of cost cutting is going on, and the food was not worth the price we paid. The cocktails were nice.
