    It took us two hours to get four tacos. Our waitress checked on us twice and forgot our order both times. We then had another waitress who also forgot our order and never checked on us. I am sad to say that I will not be returning to Loco anytime in the near future. The service was absolutely awful.

    Excellent. Highly recommend! The only downfall is the noise and uncomfortable stools.

    Quiet Monday lunch. The salsa trio came out about two minutes before the tacos, and it would have been nice to have a little more time to snack before lunch. The steak taco and the avocado taco were delicious. The salsa trio was also tasty with a delicious creamy salsa that I mostly ate.

    Way too loud for a date. We were seated right by a speaker and have to lean in and almost shout at each other. I understand loud music on a Friday night but this was early Sunday evening

    Tried to bring my mother in for a nice dinner but at 6:30 on a Sunday had a band which made it impossible to communicate even when sitting next to each other. Decided to leave as it was not worth the headache that would come if we stayed there any longer.

    Very loud establishment. Lunch was busy. Our server was great but had to run around and serve too many people. the food was really salty. Fish tacos were over fried and turned into very dry nuggets. Short rib taco was fine. Overall, I would not return.

    I come here often but the last time I came, service wasn't the greatest. We felt like we were ignored and didn't have enough plates, utensils, or water. Also, the food seemed different and not like how it was a few months ago. The tortillas were overcooked and too hard to chew, shrimp was overcooked and chewy, and the fish was too dry. The drinks are still good and I'll come back for that. I'm hoping it was an off day and will have to go back and see if things will be back to how it was.

    Always going back to Loco. Love the food and the vibe of a the bar. Sometimes the music can get really loud. We couldn’t hear our server well or each other. Besides the noise level great meal.

    Food came out wrong, and chips came with a hair. Staff couldn’t be bothered to actually do their job. Waitress asked if we wanted another round of drinks, meanwhile we were still waiting for the first round. Just all around terrible.

    Amazing drinks and vibe, so lively! Service was only okay - they seemed to have forgotten our order for 2/3 of the party at the table and had to wait long to get drinks.

    We got there a little early and saw packed it was there. I was a little embarrassed because it was more of a college crowd and didn’t seem like an appropriate spot to take my kids. I checked with the hostess in the front if it ok to have kids dine in and she assured me that it’s ok and that they also have kids menu. She was extremely pleasant and made me feel at ease. Our Waiter was also awesome and I loved the choice of music played that night as well. Definitely will come back.

    Asked the waitress for bottle of water since I don’t like a lot of table water taste and he answered “it’s not toilet water”… that answer was not necessary! It was loud you have to shout for the other person that is sitting next to you hear. Order food that never made to my table. I hope they do better but I won’t be going back!

    It's a cute restaurant with laid back vibes but could also be a good date spot. There was a performer when we were there and he was very good, although it ended up therefore being louder than we anticipated. Most folks there seemed on the younger side (early 20s). The food was excellent and the drinks were on point.
