What with street food making a splash in the city, it's no wonder that Birmingham restaurant bar Chilacas took the opportunity to nab a plot in the scenic Brindleyplace.

A cool, fresh and quirky bar in Birmingham's Brindleyplace, Chilacas has brought the street food shack outside thanks to their wooden slat walls and urban downlighting. Boasting fresh flecks of neon greens and yellows, Chilacas mixes the vibrancy of Mexican culture with the rustic and traditional nature of rural food sheds.

Whilst purveyors and super advocates of the burrito, serving something a fresh conveyor belt selection of this Mexican classic, Chilacas may be one of the only 'fast food' joints in Birmingham to have an alcohol license under their belts. Serving everything from international beers and tequila to teapot cocktails for four, Chilacas have a petite but tailored drinks menu that fits in with their Mexican grub. Head in between 5 and 7pm everyday and get 1/3 off these tasty teapot treats all week long.

Mexican street food...not the best I've ever had. Quirky place to look at but more of a fast food place than a restaurant. One of the staff was trying to flirt and it was very uncomfortable throughout the whole of our time there.

This is the most horrible place and worst burrito I have ever had!. I went with 1 person more at saturday night there and i got the pork burrito - after that i had food poisoning for 5 days. I could't go on work even because of that issue. The other person got it as well. We had same symptoms - high tempreture, stomach cramps, dehydration, dizziness, diarrhoea as well. I still have stomach pains by eating. I spoke with some friends and it occurred that they were same day, early afternoon on same place- 3 persons. The one that ate the pork burrito was having as well stomach issues !!! I got very disappointed from this place and i wont recommend it to anybody!! Please, train you personal how to serve proper food, how to interact with clients and most important to prepare FRESH MEAT BURRITO, not frozen from years and decades! Please, do anything to improve your customer services and try not to poison again anybody with meat !
