Traditional favourites from Mexico feature on the Pieno Lleno menu, along with inventive Mexican takes on other world dishes. To start, there are nachos to share, topped with cheese, guacamole, salsa, sour cream and jalapeños, moving on to specialities like sizzling fajitas with a choice of fillings. There are burritos, chimichangas, and even Mexican paella with spicy rice and cajun chicken. Fusion recipes are also on offer, like Mexican pizzas, and succulent steaks, burgers and fresh seafood cooked on the grill.

A range of crowd-pleasing exotic cocktails are served at Pieno Lleno in Southend-on-Sea, including crowd-pleasers like margaritas, piña coladas and even a signature sangría. For pudding, there are signature banana burritos with Nutella, and classic churros.

A fun slice of Mexican dining, Pieno Lleno is just a 10-minute walk from the family-friendly attractions at Southend-on-Sea Pier.

    The Pieno Lleno in Southchurch is really lovely! Came here with my girlfriend on a Sunday afternoon for a quiet meal with fantastic food, big portions for the money (the tacos!) and nice servers. Also, the churros were to die for.

    As the saying goes, 'don't judge a book by its cover'. Excellent meal and attentive staff. Used my Tastecard and wouldn't have known about the restuarant without it. Parked at the Sealufe Centre (free after 6pm)
