Great value homemade Tex-Mex food with a focus on local ingredients and catering for dietary requirements.
Serving quality Tex-Mex food at seriously good-value prices, it’s little wonder Illegal Jack’s is popular with locals, students and tourists alike. Owner and head chef Jack Muir’s unfussy, homely restaurant is an ideal place to relax over a taco or two though everything on the menu can be taken away too. Vegans are especially well catered for, with jackfruit carnitas, veggie chilli and veggie haggis all served up as fillings, each available topped with vegan cheese and drizzled with fabulous homemade hot sauce. Carnivorous customers need not despair, as meats are quality too with steak from Perthshire, and haggis ‘locally caught’ in West Lothian. The drinks list, which changes regularly, features craft ales and lagers, wines and cocktails, and even original recipe Irn Bru (available while stocks last). If you’re looking for a cheap bite without compromising on taste or quality, you’ve found the right place.
