Stacked dirty glasses lining an entire section of the bar counter. Our glasses were dirty, server was less than average, bathroom was DISGUSTING. They did not even have white wine. The server said they are closing so I guess they just don’t care anymore. Steer clear.

But we got told we have a two hour window for our table only and had to leave by 7:30pm. In all fairness, no one policed it. But it kind of put a time limit on evening

I recommend the spicy shrimp taco, best taco ever! The low light restaurant but prefer that away. Music playing overhead but still able to have conversations. I would return next time I am visiting.

So loud at some points it felt like we were eating in the middle of a night club. Knowledgeable servers and amazing cocktails, but barely worth it. Doesn't help that the space is a glorified basement with 0 windows.

Both are good options; downstairs is table service, whereas on the patio it's self serve (no table service, order everything at the bar).

However when we first got to the restaurant the host wasn’t friendly and was sure to let us know there was a reservation at our table after us (in other words “eat and get out”). This made us feel rushed and honestly unwelcomed. We also would’ve stayed for a drink after we ate, however we felt uncomfortable to do this and went elsewhere for a drink.

I also got a margarita that had chilies in it - I thought it would be well mixed and subtly spicy however there were legitimate chunks of chillies floating around the drink. Drinks are also overpriced considering the inauthenticity of the taste. I can also make a margarita and throw cut up chunks of chillies in it. Seemed like the kind of drinks I experiment making at home, only mine taste better. We won’t be coming back here. Waste of money.

Menu selection minimal, food below average, waiter was friendly. Outdoor deck may have been great for a cocktail but was too busy. More like a stop by for a quick beer post work day. Very casual! Would not go back.

The service was quite bad as well our server was not interested in our table and it was very difficult to get him to come back so we could order more. I wish I had a better experience because I love the vibe in there but will not return because of the overpriced food.

For some reason the mini margarita was the same size as the regular priced one, though they did use different tequila - either way it was a little confusing because my friend had thought she was ordering a smaller drink. Other than that the food was very good and the atmosphere was a fun late 20s/early 30s after work crowd.

The supposed huitlacoche (corn truffle) mix resembles more the taste of beans than anything else, and it comes with a mix of corn, zucchini and red peppers that completely overpowers the taste of huitlacoche (if there's any in there), not to mention that it comes with tons of sour cream and avocado. The tacos and tortillas are pretty good though.

                                                                                        Having seen El Caballito on numerous food blogs and seen great pictures of the patio and the food, I was really disappointed when I finally went there myself. I don’t want to come across as being rude, but I felt that even though it didn’t seem like there were many people (I sat inside, so maybe the patio was full) the service was extremely slow and frankly very half assed. We began with the guacamole and chips. I must say that the guacamole was delicious! Super fresh and delicious. Unfortunately we had ordered our drinks at the same time, but only got our drinks once the guacamole was basically finished. The sangrias we ordered were the worst sangrias I’ve ever had. It clearly wasn’t made fresh, because by the time we recieved our drinks there was already a layer of melted ice in the cups. The sangrias tasted like watered down cheap wine. (I know that every place does their sangrias differently, but I only had 1/4 of a mushed strawberry in my drink, whilst my friend felt like her berry bits tasted very old). By the time a server got back to us, we were so put off by the experience we opted not to order dinner and headed else where for dinner, which was so unfortunate because I was really looking forward to trying the food. I’m not sure if that was an off night- but I had a really bad time here.
