Great staff, great atmosphere a great night out all round
Long time since our last vid but no change in the quality and service. Very quiet but didn’t detract from our enjoyment. Great staff and food
Many Poulton-le-Fylde locals like to drop by Cinco’s Mexican Restaurant for a quick order of tacos gringo, fajitas served on a sizzling platter, Monterey Jack cheese-filled quesadillas, tinga chicken enchiladas and sirloin steak burritos washed down with a few drinks. Located in the heart of the town on the northeastern fringes of Blackpool, Cinco’s regularly packs out its Breck Road location with the after-work crowd looking to escape the northern gloom in an oasis of Central American warmth. You could go one better though, and book a table for a full-on Mexican feast.
To this end, a meal at Cinco’s Mexican Restaurant begins at the beginning with traditional starters like the firecracker jalapeno poppers, nachos and spicy chicken wings, or – for a properly social Mexican entree – the panchanga sharing platter heaped with gringos al pastor, black bean flautas, chicken wings, chilli poppers and a chalupa cup. Cinco’s special main courses include Mexican-style burgers, traditionally prepared lamb shanks served in a stone dish, marinated and grilled sirloin medallions topped with prawn enchiladas, or the huge mixed grill platter.
