Taste of Mexico has the willing crowd queuing

WITH all the colour and flair that Mexican food brings to the table, Stockland Gladstone's newest restaurant opened on Thursday.

All hands were on deck for all staff at Guzman Y Gomez, as they opened at 11am, and not a minute sooner, despite the line of hungry hordes waiting to eat free burritos.

Adam Evans and his mate Travis Sweeney knocked off early for the launch, and were happily munching away on burritos as two of the first 10 through the door.

"It's exciting," Mr Evans said. "Every time I go to Brisbane I have it - it's the best."

Taj and Jeb seemed content with their fun fake moustaches, with the family out for lunch. Their mum Emma Ihaia said it was great to have another choice in Gladstone.

"There's nothing here like this, it's something different for the kids too," she said.

Keri Schneider and her friends Kayley Collocott and Gabrielle Stratford agreed it was worth the wait.

The girls said it was the kind of food they'd camp out all night for (even though they didn't in this case)!
