Food was ok. Not amazing, like usual. I actually think I got sick from the 9 Year Nachos.

Even the margarita pitcher was meh.

This is a great place to experience quirky, tasty "mexican-esque" cuisine. The chile relleno is delicious, as are the street tacos and carnitas.
You absolutely have to make a reservation though. If you don't have one, the pretty hostesses are cold and impregnable. But they will fawn all over you if your name is on their list. And the staff will herd you out as quickly as they can, but they will be polite about it and do it all with a smile. So, enjoy the food and find some entertainment in the trendy, "teenager" staff!

Food was good. I enjoyed the Posole, although it usually is not served with Shreded pork.

The Cuban burger was awesome and the Pig tacos were as well. The guacamole was okay, needed a little more flavor. Service was good too.

It was nice. Very loud, good food, service was weird. They were very prompt then just left us for an hour after they gave us the dessert menu. I go there for the food.

Excellent margaritas, homemade titillasse chips and tacos. The Brussels sprout and ham tacos were great! Love the ambiance and decor.

No acknowledgement of parents anniversary even though I put it down on the reservation

Service was okay. Had to keep asking for water. Food was okay. A bit overpriced but I get that you are paying extra for the ambiance. Drinks were good and strong. Table chips were fresh.

It’s extremely loud!! Lol. Good place for those who like to just eat, drink and be merry... just not a place for a date night... unless your into that. :)
Food’s very good. Service that night was great and the Modelo Especial hit the spot
Recommend O-120 for those who like good food, cold beer and your choice of tequila !

The menu is varied and the food is very good. Much better than any chain restaurant and the quality of seafood seems very fresh.

Happy Hour Skinny premium margaritas are just all sour juice and little top notch tequila. Been going there for years and we can’t figure out why their margs are voted so highly. Try Panchos in MB for the best.
Food - they discontinued the best fish on the menu the trout.
Salmon sauce is way overpowering and too sweet
Tacos Pastor are limited on actual filling size.

Still festive and solid food but not our best visit here by far. Not our servers fault completely but overall service was inattentive and not adequate for number of tables. We did not get checked on for quality of food nor 2nd round of drinks. Server was very busy with bigger groups and tables. Margaritas lacked sparkle of other visits. Carne Asada ok but not memorable.

This is my go-to for terrific cocktails and cool atmosphere and for that this visit delivered. My waiter, Eric was excellent. My husband ordered the enchiladas mole which we both loved,however my carne asada was luke warm when it was set down. Which detracted from the overall presentation and experience. Next visit I will ask that it be hotter.
