    Our group met here for a Mini-reunion dinner. Primo met our request for our group, away from a window (baby, it was COLD outside!) and the service was great. Attentive but not disruptive! Good food, good drinks, nice atmosphere, noise level perfect for the whole table to hear and participate in the conversation!

    Every time we asked our waitress for something, she forgot. Ordered $9 queso, never got the chips. Took us over 2 hours to get in and out of there on a very basic order. And, we were the only party in the entire dining room on a Saturday afternoon.

    Dined on 11/2/2013
    A local favorite - lots of tv's if you're into sports. Margaritas are not made fresh with a blender, so be prepared for that. Food was excellent and my dining companion (life long Dallasite) let me know it's one of the best, locals places for Mexican and I agree. The food was authentic and outstanding (sans margaritas). Service was slow and they weren't that attentive though overall a good experience. Highly recommend for the food.

    Not really good for big groups. We had 15 of us and it took an hour before we were able to order dinner. Should have had one waitress for our table or not given her as many tables with our party. Overall the food was good and Primo seems to be a hot spot......just not quite we were looking for that night. Also not really kid friendly. A night out with just couples looking to be in the thick of things is more this restaurants style. Great!.......if that's what you're looking for. Would definitely give it another shot when it's just my husband and another couple.

  • GREAT BRUNCH
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 7/14/2013
    The brunch menu was excellent for a mexican restaurant in the Dallas area. It would have been nice to have better drink specials and slightly louder music and at times it got a little oddly quiet in the restaurant. Wait staff was quick and friendly. Food and drinks came out timely and he made sure to check back at our table at the most opportune times. They even let us make a last minute rez for 15.

    Had the El Pastor tacos. Meat was on the dry side but seasoning was good and so was spicy green sauce. Had to get my own silverwere and napkin after my food arrived, then the server brought it out. The best thing the server did was recommend a draft beer called Victoria that was excellent. Sorry but I doubt I go back.

    Horrible waiter--orders wrong, forgot about us, went missing for extended periods of time. Acted irritated the entire time we were there. Special event--graduation dinner, and I spoke with him, as did my parents, about the billing arrangements. He forgot them and charged me for all the drinks instead of the first round, but it was too late as he brought all the bills at once. I have worked in wait service as have most of our party (our family even owns a bar) so we know what is reasonable to expect.

    Dined on 3/8/2013
    Although Primo's isn't my go-to Mexican restaurant in Dallas, they agreed to take a large group for a birthday so we were excited to go. Unfortunately, when we got there our table was not ready. The bar area is pretty small, so you can imagine how a group of 40 would begin to crowd the tables around us. Immediately, the wait staff started getting annoyed that we were in the way. Forty-five minutes later, the hostess seated us at a table far too small for our group. Half of our party was then forced to stand for another 20 minutes before another table was ready. We had arranged large group dinners at Primo's before and never had an issue. Sadly, this one left a bad taste in my mouth. I will not be going back.

    Primo's was great. We had a great time. The only negative was that they DidNot have our reservation on their List. It was an early dinner, 6pm so Luckily we (8)people were able to get a table right away. I'm not sure which end dropped the ball, Open Table reservations or Primos. But it a worked out ok.

    The patio is an excellent place for people watching. The evening we were there they had an outdoor band that was really good. We got there in time for happy hour and ordered the pomegranate margaritas. They were a little sweet for me but the price was right! Good food and I would go back and recommend it to others.

    Had a client request this for dinner. I was confused from the start. The name is Primo's which makes me think Italian, but it's Tex-Mex. The decor feels like a pub. The food was ok, best part was dessert - the strawberries on sugar chips. Our server wasn't equipped to address the dietary requests and was fairly low energy.

    We sat down around 7:45 on a Saturday night; not too busy yet, but it started to get busy while we were eating. The food was great, but the service was a little slow. It took a few times asking for our waiter to bring us what we asked for. We ordered pitchers of margaritas which took a lot longer to get to our table than they should have. Great food and great patio space though; Primo's is still a great spot in Uptown.
