    The dishes we had were good. No problem with the food except skirt steak a bit tough. Server having a bad day. Polite, normal service questions, friendly. All food came at once. Soup, appetizer, dinner about 2 minutes later. Not a ruined dinner, but could have been much better

    It is located inside a casino so the only complaint I had (and the reason I cannot return) was the amount of cigarette smoke floating around. The food and service were good but I left with a headache due to the smoke.

    Had chicken tinga nachos and beef fajita nachos appetizers, not the best choice.... way overpriced for what you get and not great taste. The noise level was very loud... They had the bar closed up with a group from a convention right at the entrance of the restaurant rather that having their own private room for the group. It was not a good choice for dinner.

    Good place, right off the casino floor so it's a bit noisy but that brings along some good energy. Food was great. Didn't partake in the tequila menu as it was a night out with the wife so didn't want to get silly, but they had a great looking selection.

    Great margaritas, guacamole, and food! We were surprised by the very casual atmosphere of the restaurant. Which isn't bad - but it was our first time there and thought that it was more upscale dining based on Planet Hollywood's webpage.

    Like most things on The Strip, this restaurant is a bit overpriced for what you get. The flavors of the main entrees are great, though the sides (like the rice and beans) are a bit bland and unremarkable. I will say that the margarita menu is impressive.

    Very loud, but we expected as much as it's in the casino. Our number one disappointment was the food. We started the meal with the Guacamole Fresca which was average. Between the two of us we ordered fish tacos, a chicken enchilada, sides of each kind of beans (black and pinto), as well as both rice sides (Mexican and cilantro). The fish was very overcooked, the only flavour noted was the corn tortilla. The enchilada was absolutely bland. Mexican rice tasted only of rice, while the cilantro rice at least offered a hint of flavour. The most flavourful aspect of the meal was the beans, which is expected considering canned beans come with high sodium. Best part of the visit was the quick efficient service. Menu did not match online one.

    Yolo's? Does not sound Mexican. Modern steel, plastic and glass ambiance. Does not look Mexican. But the food! We started with steak nachos that came as individually prepared nacho "boats" with guacamole and a jalapeno on top. Delicious! My main course steak was spice coated and precisely cooked. Tender and melted in my mouth. The taco trio (you can mix and match) was tasty and the margerita one of the best we had lately. A+ and the prices are (surprisingly) reasonable for a place on the strip. Service was great as well. We'd go again, no arm-twisting needed.

    My wife and I both loved Yolo's. Service was friendly, prompt and informative. Drinks were tasty. We ordered the fajitas and we both loved them. But a must have for anyone visiting this restaurant is the tortilla chips and guacamole, which they prepare fresh at your table. A real treat and great to watch.
