Chiquito Fort Kinnaird knows a thing or two about Tex-Mex food because it’s part of the biggest and most loved group of Tex-Mex restaurants in the UK. Chiquito has been making mouths water for over 25 years thanks to a signature jambalaya that knocks your socks off with flavour, tender steak fajitas that people can’t get enough of and street food classics like tacos and mini burritos. You’ll find Chiquito Fort Kinnaird at Northern Quarter Redevelopment, not far from Newcraighall train station as you head down the A1 from Portobello Beach, and these days you can get involved for brunch, lunch or dinner, with Chiquito also showing off an additional gluten-free menu as well as one for the kids. Chiquito margaritas are kind of a big deal, too, which is what makes it fit for a few casual drinks as well as for a proper Tex-Mex fill with the family. If you’re visiting Chiquito Fort Kinnaird at the weekend then a reservation is a good idea.
