The Hungry Mexican Restaurant
Hen or stag parties are always welcome. Why not pop in and enjoy the very best mexican food and cool music in a relaxing atmosphere.
Our lovely staff always have a great smile and very friendly attitude which enhances the beauty of The Hungry mexican Restaurant for its great food and customer service"
Went in for my birthday and there was 14 of us. We were a handful and the servers were INCREDIBLE! Every single person said the food was amazing, so happy with everything. Food, drink and overall experience was more than I could have asked for.
Food was very good, only the location itself was quite noisy. For eating and having some drinks with friends it's fine but I wouldn't call it family friendly. Conversations are barely possible due to the noise.
Be sure to order the Grande Nachos. The chili spice on the nacho chips complimented the cheese and veggies on top perfectly. So yummy!! We highly recommend the enchiladas with the chipotle sauce. Disfrutamos nuestra comida.
Best burrito ever tasted, sooo yummy!!! Friendly staff
After living in Ireland for nearly a year, we finally found a place that is good, basic Mexican food. Not fancy, but not fast food either. The habanero salsa is actually hot, which is hard to find in Dublin. The nachos are hand-made flour chips and, while unexpected, are fantastic! Nice wait staff, good service. Cozy setting.
The food was lovely and the portion sizes were generous. The restaurant initially looked very dark and unappealing but after having food there and enjoying drinks, it all works really well. Definitely would go back
The food was excellent. Unfortunately we had to wait over an hour for it to arrive while we were repeatedly offered drinks rather cynically in the interim. The waitress was quite pushy when asking for drinks orders.
Excellent food but extremely slow service you might starve to death before it arrives.
Nicest nachos Iv ever had
Really njoyed our night
Will definitely be back 👍🏻
While all looked well initially with a nice lively cantina like atmosphere the food was pretty disappointing. Nachos were very poor with strange Tortilla chips and very limited toppings which meant it was very overpriced at 9.95 Euros. Vegetarian burrito was filled with undercooked rice while the chicken fajitas had dry overcooked chicken although the et of the dish was fine. Pitcher of margarita was tasty though only had a hint of tequila which seemed was bad value at 25 Euros. Overall a disappointing experience.
A nice casual Mexican joint with great food and friendly staff. It also offered a lot of vegan options which was great!
We LOVED the Hungry Mexican! We were lucky to find it while on holiday in Dublin, and returned the following two nights. The vegan options are to die for. Try the soya burrito and the tostones !
After several cancellations we finally celebrated a birthday with a lover of Mexican cooking. We were not disappointed, although when my wife and I return we will share some of the portions. An excellent way to pass a lunchtime...
The Hungry Mexican was great for our group of 9 (with 3 vegans and 2 vegetarians), the food was good and the Passion fruit and Strawberry Margaritas were fab. The only thing I would say is it took the best part of 45 minutes for us to get our food, it was a Friday night so the place was quite busy but the staff could have maybe given us a heads up that we'd be waiting a little while! Otherwise, really cool, fun, restaurant and I will definitely go back, I'll just maybe order a starter or nachos for the wait next time!
Very friendly Staff, owners very hands on. Food was fab, lots of vegetarian options!
Interior is different and casual but nice vibe in the whole place! Don’t be put off by first appearances the place grows on you. Will definitely be back!!
Great food and drinks, generous helpings at good value.
At Christmas I had booked a table for 7 people.. there was a large party of maybe 20 people before us.. we sat waiting two hours to be told that it would be another 45 mins before we would get our food as they needed to serve the bigger party before us.. we had only ordered simple things like burritos and nachos. We had to leave as we had spent 200 euro on alcohol as we had been waiting for so long.. then they had the audacity to try and put a service charge on the bill when we had received no food.. we left as we couldn’t wait any longer. It was an absolute disgrace.. we will never go back there again.
The food was not nice at all. It isn't expensive but I would rather pay more money and eat nice Mexican food.
Great place, good food and a excelent service, can highly recommend it :-)
Food was delicious and plentiful. Service was friendly and efficient. Great atmosphere. I thought it was good value for money as well.
Great food and fast service. Loved the variety of vegan options on the menu!
Amazing pitchers of Mojito and Margaritas. The tacos, tequila wings, and nachos are a must.
Not a lot spent on fixtures and fittings but the food and service worth the visit
Delicious margaritas. Took about 40 minutes for the starter to come out but the service was very friendly.
We had a great time at the Hungry Mexican. The service was attentive and friendly. Atmosphere was great and we were provided with sombreros.
Food was tasty and portions were generous. Heartily recommended for large groups.
Mexican food snob here, yet I found the BEST nachos ever at this small, simple restaurant. Hand cut flour tortillas fried to a perfect texture and very tasty, authentic toppings. We also enjoyed delicious checked fajitas. Fun, friendly waitress.
If I hadn't seen this place on Open Table I would have never discovered this little gem. Who knew you could get fresh, delicious and healthy Mexican food in the heart of Dublin. I liked this place so much, I ate there twice during my Dublin vacation. Don't be put off by the look of the place. It's a hole-in-the-wall right across the street from the River Liffey, but great food can be had here for a very fair price. The service is friendly and the food is cooked fresh to order...so relax!
The service and food was excellent. Probably the best Mexican food I've had in a long time. Staff were really nice and helpful.
We couldn't find it and when we rang to ask for directions they weren't very clear
The Hungry Mexican (formerly of Bodkins in Dublin 1) used to be and still is the best quality Mexican food in the city! Their recent move to Aston Quay has meant a brand new look but it’s got the same great food, drink and service.
The prices are extremely reasonable (they even do a lunch deal for €10 which includes Burrito/Taco, fries and a drink).
The menu has some great choices from
Chimichangas (my favourite) to tacos, burritos, etc. They’ve even got some unusual dishes to try. The cocktails and drink selection is great too...strong and tasty Margaritas are the best.
The service is fantastic - they always greet with a smile and food comes quickly..
Would highly recommend! Best Mexican in Dublin (and one of the only ones on OpenTable which is super handy)!
Great food with large portions
