Reviews for The Flying Burrito Brothers

Quick service, the food was delicious and the sangria was tasty but extremely overpriced - was meant to get 6 glasses out of the jug and we barely could fill 4 cups for $30. One particular waitress came across very rude and unenthusiastic and the other staff seemed a bit pushy for us to order more sangria and desert. Really disappointing atmosphere. The skull booths were ridiculously cramped and uncomfortable. The lighting in the booths also were too bright - I felt like I needed to wear sunglasses. Not that bothered on returning.

Had a delicious meal here last night for my son's birthday. The service was good, and we all enjoyed our meals. We shared some small plates: corn chips, salsa, guacamole, calamari. Then mains: pork & pineapple tacos , beef fajita, chicken enchilada, chicken flying burrito. Some of us had room for dessert: chocolate cake, banana chimichanga, coconut flan. There were 6 of us and we all really loved what we ordered.
Unfortunately they don't take bookings for less than 10, which is a bit annoying. However we turned up at 6pm on busy Saturday night, they were able to seat us immediately on the enclosed deck under the outdoor heaters so we were nice & warm. But I think there were other tables on the deck that were too cold due to proximity to gaps & heaters.
Also the car park doesn't seem to be finished, so not a lot of parking available (I would say this is the fault of developers/landlord, rather than Flying Burrito Brothers)
A great night, we will be back!

We had a 6pm booking on a Saturday night for 7 people. Mains arrived at 7.15pm. Desserts took 35 mins to arrive after we had finished mains and placed our order. The enchilada I ordered was nothing to write home about but there was only one tortilla on the plate instead of two (which I realised when I checked the menu when I got home). The waitress didn't come back regularly to check on our drinks, we always had to flag one down. It was very noisy, they had obviously overbooked as it was also very crowded with queues out the door. The childrens menu has a starter of corn chips with melted cheese. I personally think this should be removed as it then fills the kids up and they don't eat all of their dinner! Definitely will not be back, and I politely told the man when I paid, he didn't seem too interested.

Thought I'd check out the North Shore's newest Mexican restaurant - after all, there are enough to choose from at the moment! Food was excellent although staff clearly very new - had to laugh when I asked a waitress for corn chips and she said she didn't know if that was ok because she was new... New, young staff can be worked on though. Salsa was fresh amd delicious, corn chips hand made and fajitas smoky and flavoursome. 2 small criticisms - no kids' menu that we could see or were offered...and that small extra bowl of corn chips - no more than 20 chips - was a whopping $5. I'd go again...but at $50 per head for a shared starter plate, mains each and shared desserts, it won't be too regular an occasion.

Just opened so a few teething problems with orders etc.
Otherwise the food that we did get was excellent.
