Contemporary Mexican
Kick back at Nada, a taco & cocktail joint in downtown Indianapolis. Snag guacamole and salsa to share, and dig in to punched-up tacos and mac n’ cheese with margaritas on draft and local craft brews.

Loud. Crowded. Expensive for chips and tacos, but there are some real treats on the taco menu (deep-fried avocado taco; crispy pork belly with fried egg). Cocktails were small.

The tacos’ ingredients were well thought out and complimented each other very well. Atmosphere and service was pleasant. Would recommend to anyone who would like Mexican with a more refined taste.

We are spicy foodies and this did not disappoint. We had the chips and salsa trio, the third having kreeper pepper in it. Also ordered the mac and cheese with added kreeper and he ordered the poutine extra spicy too and he said it was excellent. Great service and ambience. Will be back on our next trip to Indy.

VERY loud. Talking was not an option from across the two person table. No cell reception inside the restaurant. The tacos were good, but the Mu Shu taco was way too salty. Would have liked to have had a corn tortilla option for the tacos. The guacamole was one of the best I’ve ever had. The server was quick and responsive.

Went for a girl's brunch and had a wonderful time. Food was amazing and drinks were very very good.
Our waitress Jody was terrific and fun. Shaking the margarita at the table with a little dance.

I was lenient on the food because their appetizers were okay. They are a taco place, a street taco place. The tortillas were flour, I prefer corn. It just didn’t compare to other taco places I have been to. The service was excellent. The main host had an old sweatshirt on that was a few sizes too big, making him look unprofessional compared to the others. Not the first thing you think you would see at a high end restaurant. Kudos to the wait staff!

We’ve visited the Cincinnati Nada several times and love it. Our dining experience yesterday was subpar at best. We sat for 10 minutes before the server greeted us. We ordered queso with black beans. It came out incorrect. We sent it back, they brought it out again, incorrect again. We could hear the server in the back bad mouthing us and our order. When our meal came out, my husbands was wrong. Missing part of the order. The server seemed frustrated our entire experience which seemed odd as we were his first table of the day.

Came here on VDay and it was nice. This visit wasn't as good, food was cold, Pastor tacos where dry chewy. The Mu Shu tacos were ok. Coconut Flan was great. Churros were extremely oily, we couldn't eat then.

This is my third or fourth time at NADA. I love their margaritas and tacos. The Queso & Mac and Cheese are some of my favorites as well. My only complaint this time is that the server was VERY SLOW to bring cocktails to the table. Ultimately this cost him money in tips and in his check average. I will say he was very friendly and helpful just not the quickest. In addition I was very disappointed that the Indianapolis location doesn't have the pot roast taco anymore - it was AMAZING and my dads favorite so I had planned to bring him back for it. I was told that Cincinnati still offers it. Overall great and I will keep coming back.

The Mac and cheese ,curios, and fried chicken was awesome and would be back for that. The pork belly tacos were just ok and the skirt steak was tough and not that good. The food came out fast from when we ordered. The service was slow on drinks but the place was packed. Overall pretty good.

My wife and I were having date night plus this was our first visit to your establishment. We were greeted with friendly staff, they verified our reservation and seated us within 3 minutes. Our waitress, Becka, was friendly, professional, patient and knowledgeable about the menu plus gave recommendations. The recommendations were not only on food choices but offering add-on items to complete or change the taste of my pork belly taco, adding the egg.
A clear great first experience, we live in Zionsville about 20-25 minutes north of Indianapolis and we both work close to downtown, so your restaurant is a clear redo.
Please recognize Becka she did a great job

Waitress was amazing. Food was just a tad under amazing. Great decor you almost forget Nada is a chain.

Was there for meeting and the whole table almost starts vibrating it was so loud. Table was attached to wall where apparently next door construction was happening. Had to yell to hear other. Went on for 10 minutes.

Would I go back again? Of course. I’m sure the neighbors construction will be done by then?

This was my second time at Nada. The first time the salmon taco was great. This time the pork belly had basically overcooked almost burnt thick bacon on it. It's pretty hard to screw up bacon, so that needs to be improved.

Decor was awesome! I love the look of the place. Descriptions of food on menu made me want to eat it all. Food Presentation was good. Flavor was missing. The chicken was bland and dressing was a tasteless lubricant. The only thing that was flavorful was the kreeper sauce. I just expect more flavor at this price point. The table for 2 was very cramped & even though my husband was sitting close I couldn't hear a word he said cause the music was a bit too loud. Slightly disappointed.
