Guzman y Gomez Mexican Taqueria, 154 Albert St, Brisbane, QLD 4000, Ph: 0731991703
Date of Review: 14 October 2013
This Mexican restaurant chain is popping up all over Brisbane. With its bright yellow and black signage and decor, Guzman y Gomez really stands out from the other dining spots. It's an order at the counter affair and then you wait at the end of the long assembly line for your number to be called out. Once this happens, your food is delivered in a convenient takeaway container. You can't help but feel that the service is a bit impersonal. It feels like you are one of the cogs in the wheel of a manufacturing assembly line.
Luckily most of the items on the menu are gluten free. All except the burritos, which are made with a wheat tortilla. You can have tacos (corn-based), quesadillas (corn-based) or a burrito bowl (minus the tortilla and with rice instead). My favourite are the hard shell tacos, although if you want a more filling meal, go for the burrito bowl. It's annoying having to ask for guacomole as an extra (when I think it should be included as a staple of any Mexican dish), but it does taste better with it.
The meals themselves are pretty delicious and extremely filling. At $10.50 this is on the upperside of expensive for a takeaway lunch, which looks like a rush job and must be fairly easy to assemble. However, the taste will keep you coming back for more!
TOTAL SCORE: 15/20 or 75%
