Favorite spot in Southie! Tacos are amazing. Tried the chicken pesto one and was so impressed. Who knew that could work as a taco!

Our server took 35 minutes to take our order after getting our first round of drinks. And that went into our 90
Minute time frame. We then only had 20 minutes to eat and wanted more drinks while we waiting but our server never came to check in but checked in to our neighboring tables. Granted this was at 3:30 and wasn’t too crowded. Very frustrating.

Loco is my favorite place to get a quick lunch or an awesome dinner experience. The staff has a way of making you feel like you are right at home. Every trip to Loco is like going to your friends for dinner, but with better food and much better drinks!

Loco is the best! Their brunch menu is unreal. I got the chorizo burrito and their breakfast potatoes. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Amazing staff as well!!

Everything we ordered was delicious and the service was phenomenal. Our server was happy to break down the menu, answer questions we had about certain food and even recommend a few things. Definitely worth the trip. The drinks, queso and smoked brisket tacos were amazing.

COVID accomodations work well on a sunny fall day. Sat at a picnic bench on Broadway. Food was delicious and drinks were good. Noise level dominated by street traffic (out of Loco's control).

Awesome, as usual. Oysters were briny and the cocktails outstanding (and our guests were very picky bartenders).

Monday’s, they serve the $1 oysters; they’re so fresh and just delicious. The ambiance was really nice! My party and I were able to be seated no problem and listened to a few great tunes as we waited to be served! All of the tacos are beautifully made, however, the blackened tuna taco is literally amazing! This was my second Monday visit. I believe Monday’s I will return.

I have loved this place and the food still didn’t disappoint. My criticism is in regards to ambiance. It’s tough times for restaurants and I completely understand that. However, letting people come in without masks, not cleaning the tables and partitions that are separating booth, it was uncomfortable. In this day and age giving customers a sense of safety is super important. When you see sticky handprints on the clear partitions, it’s upsetting. I’d happily order takeout cause the food is amazing but I can’t see myself returning to dining- in or out - based on the standards I experienced.
