Housed within the bustle of the popular shopping centre, Chiquito Gateshead Metro Centre offers a character-filled retreat. Striking decor and a sunny ambience makes for an authentic Latin American vibe.
Packed with authentic dishes from both sides of the border, the Chiquito menu captures the essence of all things Tex-Mex. Spanning from mild to wild, a range of crowd-pleasing offerings includes the likes of sizzling fajitas, juicy cheese burgers, bursting burritos and tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs.
Chiquito also offers a popular brunch menu, lighter bites for lunch, sweet-tooth favourite desserts, plus a gluten-free menu. At the bar, delicious thirst-quenching options are served alongside famed margaritas, and other classic cocktails.
An exciting eatery serving delicious South American cuisine, Gateshead Chiquito sits next to the shopping centre’s entertainment complex. The lively centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne sits just 15 minutes’ drive away.

All meals were delicious. Garlic prawn fajitas were a treat and churros with caramel sauce a real treat.

Always a pleasure to dine at Chiquitos food excellent service always good attentive pleasant staff. Great atmosphere with background music just at correct volume not too loud so you can engage with friends don’t have to shout to hear each others conversation as my husband is Mexican he’s good judge of food no complaints of standards or as near authentic as possible.

I absolutely love Chiquitos. The atmosphere and environment is amazing, always such friendly faces and excellent food and service every time without fail. The fajita dishes and enchiladas are to die for but me and my partner try to get different dishes every time we come! Mine and his favourite place to eat! :)

Lovely restaurant and food! It was our daughter's 12th birthday! She invited her friends! However the staff did nothing to recognise the fact! TGI's make a fuss of birthdays and sing and bring out a free slice of cake with candles etc. Just a missed opportunity.
