Another great meal before lockdown. The flavour combination in all the dishes is unreal so fresh and tasty. Shame we dont live closer for takeaway but we will be back straight after lockdown.

Absolutely fantastic experience, the decor and atmosphere was superb. The staff couldn't be more friendly and the food, and cheeky margarita at lunchtime were exquisite, tasty, fresh and extremely well presented

Ordered a starter off the snacks to be told we couldn’t have it for a starter it’s a main course! A) I’ve had it as a starter before, B) If it’s a main course why is under snacks?? We hadn’t finished our starter before bringing out the mains, when my husband addressed this with the waiter he totally ignored my husband and walked away. We tried again to be ignored. Asked how everything was at the end of the meal I said we had a couple of issues to be told ‘so I heard’ . My husband making polite conversation asked if they would have to close based on that nights announcement of a further lockdown to be told ‘ as long as I’m furloughed I’m not bothered’ all in all I won’t be hurrying back. Shame as the food is good, just a shame the customer service isn’t.

Fabulous, authentic Mexican food. Both our meals were fantastic. Value for money, very generous portion sizes. Covid restrictions well in place, friendly staff. We would both definitely come back.

May I suggest that a method is found to keep the food warm on the tables, a bit like the hotplates in Indian restaurants. Our food became cold very quickly. In addition my partner is VERY allergic to egg and the serving staff were made aware of this. Arrangements were made to have one off the fries dishes made with a tomato salsa rather than the regular mayonnaise recipe. However it was mayonnaise based topping that arrived. My partner had one mouthful and immediately suffered an allergic reaction. Fortunately she realised what had happened and the reaction was limited to an itching sensation in her mouth. Had she not realised she would have de finitely suffered a major reaction in the form of itching sores over her body. This was an error by your staff who sought to minimise their error and its potential injury to my partner.r

Great service and great food as always, plenty of space between the tables however once it started to get busy it did feel quite close.

I have been waiting a long time for a great Mexican restaurant to open in the North East. Lobo Rojo doesn’t disappoint. Delicious, freshly cooked food, great menu, cool venue and excellent service. It’s one of my top 5 local restaurants.
