Checho's opened in 2020, bringing contemporary Mexican dining to Penrith. The aesthetic is breezy, almost coastal chic, with pastel tones and tiles and neon feature pieces.

But you're here for the food: expect vibrant flavours that pop. We're talking Tex-Mex-style snacks like jalapeño poppers with maple bacon; Latin-inspired zesty ceviche or steak with chimichurri sauce; and melt-in-your-mouth brisket tacos. The plates are made to be shared, especially larger dishes like sizzling fajitas and lamb shoulder. And the fresh house guac is, of course, non-negotiable.

For bevs, there are classic margaritas and signature agave-focused cocktails, with tropical fruit flavours, spices and citrus.
