I can not say anything about the food. We didn’t eat anything there as we got thrown out. We walked in And the man was seated behind a computer and told us to sign in. As we were a group of 5 (2 families), we...entered 5 names And 5 numbers as he requested of us. Then, this is where things turned bad. We were pointed to a booth at which the seat was in very bad condition. There were rips And areas where the vinyl was ripped off the seat. Even duct tape. I asked if we could sit at another booth, And he very curtly stated that as we had a minor we could not sit there. (There were only 2 other tables occupied). I pointed out that seats he wanted us at were all ripped, And his response “I can’t help it if families allow their children to jump all over the furniture And rip it”. My response to that was “sorry about that but it’s not my fault” He said “Leave. I don’t want you here I’m not going to serve you. Leave now”More

We finally made it to Cheachie’s Grill today. It does take a bit of effort to find this place, but the search is worth it. This restaurant is located in a bit of an industrial area and unless you are paying close attention, you could...drive right by it. We decided to do takeout and ordered a Chicken Burrito Platter $16.45 and a Veggie Burrito Platter $15.35. The burritos were big and delicious, so good. The tossed salad was varied and really fresh and the rice and beans were excellent, too. This is a great little Mexican restaurant and we will definitely be going back.More

We have been several times now - pre and post pandemic. Cheachie's never fails to impress - it is the best Mexican food in Halifax! We've had several dishes, fish tacos, chicken enchiladas, chicken tacos and all are delicious with guac, sour cream and a...nice bite to the salsa - muy bien! They also make a great margarita - salud!More

Amazing What can I say? This is the best burger I’ve had in Halifax so far and I’ve lived here for a year and a half and have ordered a lot of burgers. You would think this would be a review for their Mexican food...but we heard that the burgers are the real deal. The burger was juicy, generous and delicious. I had the big Earl, the bacon was cooked perfectly and the onion rings on it were awesome. My spouse got the pounder and he enjoyed every bite, it was loaded with delicious crispy bacon. The owners were so pleasant and the service was fast and friendly. I want to try everything on the menu!More

We ordered out when I visited my son in Halifax, and his girlfriend, who was familiar with Mexican food. They knew the menu and ordered tacos and enchiladas. It was my first time eating enchiladas and it will not be the last time! The tacos...and enchiladas were bursting with flavour. Freshly made. Such an enjoyable meal. Thank you to everyone.More

Everyone at the table loved their food—it was delicious. I think those might have been the best steak tacos I've ever had. Yummy.

This place is in a strip plaza, our of the way. We were encouraged by other reviews. Food was fresh, hot, tasty and authentic Mexican. Prices were very reasonable and service was friendly and attentive. Portions were the right size -- we were full but...not stuffed. Choices for everyone even if you do not like Mexicsn. There were drink specials and nice Mexican decor. We will go back and would recommend.More

Very happy with our meal. I am vegetarian and had a veggie burrito. Was very spicy but not too much. Perfect amount. I haven’t had good Mexican in awhile and was very happy with my meal. We went out and bought sour cream and guacamole...to go with it and were impressed that when we opened the bag there was already containers of both (oh well, we can use the other stuff later) I am not a lover of food....I eat to survive and usually I don’t care what it taste like but this was extra good and got my attention. Good job and we will order againMore

I love mexican food, and i love tacos so why wouldnt i LOVE this place? Well, first off.. it's the most awkward atmosphere ever! You walk in and it's completely dead, the waitress makes awkward conversations with you, attempts to joke but hovers over you...and just doesnt go away... it's like they're bored. The fish tacos are delicious, probably one of the best fish tacos i have ever had.. the rest of the food is just MEH.... they really need to focus on their customer service, and make people feel welcomed and not suffocate them. PS: they do have limitations with Taco Tuesday, it's only SPECIFIC kind of tacos..not sure how they can say it's taco tuesday but yet, limit you on what type of tacos you can get.. they dont say it anywheres except when you go to order; it's dumb.More
