I am a taco lover so I knew once I landed that this place would be my first stop. I made a reservation so we were seated immediately and the place wasn't busy at all maybe 4 other tables, our waiter came over immediately to greet us. The food was alright not the best I've had especially being from NYC. The taco was the best that we had here, unfortunately the chicken loaded nachos tasted like tuna and the corn just wasn't the street corn I'm used to so I didn't like it much. The waiter was really nice and even gave us free shots for my birthday which was great. I probably would only come back here for the tacos and drinks.

Everytime I have stayed at the Dream I would always go to Naked Taco, but this year the food was okay not the best like before. Doesn't taste the same as before, not as authentic. The breakfast was okay and octopus tako was so so.

This place is a tourist trap. Made a reservation for a bachelorette party and we were all dissatisfied. The margaritas were awful and the food was ridiculously expensive for the quality. How can you mess up tacos?? The atmosphere is cute and seemed perfect for a bachelorette party, but the food makes it totally not worth it.

Absolutely great. Arrived in south beach late in the day looking for a casual, no fuss place for dinner close to our hotel. We were greeted with a smile and were seated outside on a street side table in a trendy, colorful, but comfortable patio. (check out my little friend on the way to the restroom!)
The house margarita was small but very refreshing and the cold Modelo my husband had set us for dinner.
Boy, what a dinner. My husband really loved the general tsao’s cauliflower taco- how inventive , and the shrimp taco was perfectly light but spicy. His classic ceviche was excellent and chilled just right.
I had the pollo verde verde and could not have been more happy. Tender chicken, onions and poblanos wrapped in a corn tortilla drizzled with green sauce. YUMMO. The presentation in a silver skillet really made it special.
It’s not on the main drag but well worth the short adventure to Collins Ave for some great food and atmosphere. Well done, Chef And serving team!

Not worth the aggression! I have this place a second chance and I regret it! The only good thing about this place was the margaritas and the atmosphere. The service was beyond horrible and down right shameful. Go here if you want your time wasted and want to pay 18-20% gratuity to receive the wrong order and slow service.

The meal was good and the lemon pepper French fries were really delicious. The drinks were very expensive, even though probably normal for South Beach. I would def prefer Naked Taco not in a tourist area but.... It was more of a tourist attraction than local restaurant.
Always hearing Chef Pagan on Paul Castronovo show with 11 11 Collins Avenue and had to try it.

Outside seating was not available with our late reservation, but we were seated inside right away. The tacos were delicious and the rice/beans as well. The tacos were stuffed portions and two was satisfying. Overall I felt it was quite pricey: Chips and salsa for $10; Two tacos for $14; and sides an additional $5. We chalked it up to the cost of vacation in Miami!
