Food and drink

Dishes such as nachos, chilli poppers, burritos, fajitas, burgers, sandwiches, salads and steaks from the grill are served in Chiquito.[2][6] They also serve a wide range of cocktails, such as tequila and rum cocktails[7] as well as a choice of wines.[8]

Decor and style

The restaurants, which tend to feature a large bar and lounge style restaurant have rustic interior décor, based on traditional Mexican architecture and culture, where old Mexican posters and photos[2] adorn the walls, alongside piñatas[2] plates, castanets, fans, and sombreros.[8] Spanish and Mexican music plays throughout the restaurant.[6]
