Illegal Jack's Southwestern Grill: "loved it!" Illegal Jack's - CLOSED Tip by iaint

Illegal Jack's - CLOSED, Edinburgh: 1 reviews and 1 photos

by iaint

A real fun place - not fancy, but great value. It's Tex-Mex.

I had a HUGE burrito for £6.26. It was a struggle to finish it, even after an afternoon in the open at the Jazz & Blues Festival's Mardis Gras - with a beer or two included.

Mostly it is counter service, but some stuff gets brought to your table. I think there were 10-11 of us, so perfect for a big group. Everyone enjoyed it, and several had some trouble with their burrito.

Hope to be back!

Ideal location for Usher Hall, Traverse & Lyceum Theatres, Filmhouse & Odeon cinema.

Favorite Dish: So far...the burrito.
