After several attempts of getting a table we finally got one. Thinking to myself this place must be awesome as it is always packed with eager customers. I was so wrong. Everything we ordered lacked flavour and most of our plates were barely touched. Wait staff asked if the meal was fine. I answered it lacks flavour. They just gave... More

Had dinner last night at Trippy Taco with a friend. We ordered three items and shared them. Two Trippy Tacos, Regular size nachos (sized for one), and the Special Quesadilla. All three were tasty, and although similar - there was still a variety of tastes going on. I probably like the taco the best, would order all three of them... More

Wish it was a little bigger, but that's me being use to California Mexican food! Staff was helpful on my phone order and... More

Went for a mid week lunch. Its good vegetarian Mexican food on a budget. I went with two Coeliacs so the fact that a good majority of the menu is gluten free is a bonus. We all enjoyed our meals, none of it was mind blowing but it was good tasty food. Service was relatively quick. I would go back... More

Finally managed to get here with a friend! I am a huge fan of Mexican and I love eating vegetarian and vegan food as a bit of a change from meat. I ordered the tofu and black bean tacos. They are as fresh as you can get, bursting with flavour and filling you in such a wholesome way you feel... More

Have previously visited & been very satisfied with food & value; no change in that opinion. Busy as ever (the venue is tiny) but it runs quite smoothly. Generous serve,$10 mojito large & tasty.

Whilst really busy with lots of happy people l found the experience very average. The first let down was a plate of cold (not warm) paprika fries followed by a burrito that was so soggy it just fell apart. My partners was a little better.

This food is not for everyone but if you love Mexican food but not all of the sloppiness and meat then you will love Trippy Tacos! It is vegetarian and you can get many items vegan as well! My son and I ate there this evening and had some amazing Nachos, burritos (with lost of salad and peppers) and Enchilada.... More
