Loved everything about it!
OK food, but inattentive service during a not-so-busy time. Had to get my own salsa for the tacos after getting tired of waiting for the server to bring them.
Two tiny plastic cups of salsa for a large basket of tortilla chips.
Lunch with my daughter. Everything we ordered was really good. Street corn hush puppies can’t be missed.
Food was great for the price. Amazing guacamole. Servers were attentive. A bit noisy but what you would expect for this type of place on a Saturday night.
This was my second time dining at Broken English. I had a reservation and arrive ~30min early. I was sat right away which was nice, and the server also informed me of the happy hour ending soon. I really appreciated the fact that she told me about the drink specials that day, so I ordered a drink and waited for my date. The table was EXTREMELY wobbly. So wobbly in fact, that I was afraid of knocking it over for the entire meal. The table was also slightly sticky and dirty.
The margaritas are rather sweet but definitely strong (and for the happy hour price of $6 definitely worth it), so that helps balance it out. Once my date arrived, we ordered more drinks and took a look at the menu. There is a decent selection of tacos, burritos, etc. I should note that the music was SO LOUD I could BARELY hear the server let alone my date sitting across from me. The server told us she would ask them to turn it down, however, the volume level didn't seem to change much after.
After a few drinks we ordered our food, and I definitely felt like our server and the waitstaff were judging us! We ordered the 12 taco platter, with full intentions of taking some home. When I ordered the platter, the server looked at me wide-eyed in disbelief and said something like, "oh, 12? okay" as if it were a big deal that two people ordered that much food. The gentleman who brought our food out checked the ticket multiple times and was also in disbelief when he delivered the food to the table. This judgmental behavior was also noticed when ordering a pitcher of margaritas.
Overall, the tacos were pretty good albeit rather salty. Service was rather slow but it is understandable for a busy Friday night. The interior/atmosphere is fun and colorful but EXTREMELY cramped. I think they need to remove some tables and make more space (we were practically on top of our neighboring tables on all sides). I would definitely go back, but not for a date and not on a Friday night.
I had a fantastic time at Broken English! The food was great, the 2$ tacos on Tuesday were well worth it, and even their shrimp tacos (excluded from the 2$ deal) were to die for. I will certainly be coming back! The ambiance and set up of the entire restaurant made it very urban yet comfortable at the same time. It was a bit loud, but the restaurant was very busy and the music choice was spectacular, so I cannot complain.
Atmosphere and service was great. Food servings were pretty small for the price, but it was good.
Casual and fun spot with decent tacos and mediocre service. I've been here three times, and each was just fine. Last time, our waitress seemed frazzled, our drinks weren't fully filled and the pacing of the meal felt off. The taco salad is comparable to any other, as is the burrito. Still, the spot is super cute with great outdoor seating and a convenient location. Go for the margaritas and ambiance.
Great food & atmosphere! The $2 tacos are a great deal, but three of their like 7 tacos you cant order for that deal (fried chicken, shrimp and I cant remember the 3rd one). Totally recommend for a date or friends!
Been here a few times and the food is good but sometimes it was just ok. Happy hour makes it worth it.
Food, drinks, service, etc was all pretty good, but this place is pretty expensive if you’re not getting one of their margarita or taco deals.
Great food, drinks, and service! Definitely will go back!
Didn’t have certain items on menu which was unfortunate I was looking forward to all week.
Went on a Saturday evening and the place was packed.
Food was disgusting and made my friend sick. Service was horrible - he barely checked on us. It was my birthday and I was really disappointed - kind of sad....
Excellent as always! We will be back for sure.
Stopped in for Tacos with our daughter after a busy day. They charge you for the chips & Salsa, and they were only okay. We eat at a lot of Mexican restaurants and this was definitely the first that did not have rice and beans. I felt it was very expensive for what we had
The restaurant literally smelled like sewage, so we had to leave halfway through our meal. Great service and vibe otherwise, though!
The restaurant itself is really fun! The ambience is lively and the crowd was loud but that’s because everyone was having fun! There is a ton of seating available for small or large groups.
The menu is great, so many options for whatever taco you might be in the mood for! My group of three got the 12 for 38 and finished the whole thing! Tacos were so good and the platter is great for variety.
Our service was kinda iffy. We sat for a while before our server greeted us and he seemed very impatient with us. My friend is from Ireland and has a very thick accent making it hard for her to understand others at times and for others to understand her. Our server was kind of rude to her when she was ordering and while she trying to explain that she couldn’t eat cilantro because of her stomach. The server barely visited the table throughout the night and he was very preoccupied with another party.
Overall I would come back but in high hopes that I wouldn’t get the same server.
Food was tasty and reasonable price
First time it was great! Will be back
My friends and I were excited to see a location open up in Indianapolis - our Chicago friends always rave about this place. We were very disappointed by how our experience turned out. It was hard for us to finish our margaritas because the mix was horrible and it was so strong. I got the least spicy food on the menu and it was still very spicy.
Great for our big group. Music could have been a bit quieter but food was good and drinks were strong
Best burrito I’ve had to date! My wife felt the same about the quesadilla she had.
Outstanding in every way. We really enjoyed our evening with our friends.
I attended Broken English Taco pub on a Saturday night with 3 of my girlfriends. We had a reservation, and were sat relatively quickly. We received attention from our waitress quickly, and had waters right away. While she was helpful for the most part, we were rather put-off on a few things.
Firstly, we didn't receive the guacamole we had ordered, but received the chips and salsa which we happily ate. We were offered refills on the chips/salsa (more like side cups than a bowl of salsa), but were not told explicitly (nor was it noted on the menu, or from what we were able to see) that we would have to pay for the refills. We would have been more than happy to pay for the $2.00 up charge if we had just been told off the bat.
Secondly, two of us had ordered margaritas - which for the $12.00 cost you'd expect a pretty generous helping. Not the case, it was smaller than the water cup - it still tasted very good - but on top of that, we were charged an extra $3.00 per margarita for a flavor. Again, we'd be happy to pay the price...if we would have known that before the bill came out.
I was a little disappointed because there are so many other great restaurants to spend a Saturday night with friends, and while our experience wasn't what some would call "bad," we were still relatively annoyed by the hidden costs - which, I'll reiterate, we would have been happy to pay if we had known ahead of time.
I'll end on a positive note - the carne asada tacos were very tasty!
In this city there are countless authentic and delishious taco joints. Go there instead and save yourself. First signal should have been charging an absurd amount for chips and salsa. Cute place but so loud you can’t talk with sub par service. Once the tacos arrived I was starving and honestly despite my hunger still would have preferred not to eat them. Nothing about them was close to edible. Save your money and go somewhere that does not just exist as a place for bachelorettes to get drunk.
Four adults, my three year old and my 11 month old. The service was great, food was good and the games were excellent. The kids made a mess and they were fine with that. If you’re in a similar situation, take care of your server. They deserve it.
We arrived early and told them we had a reservation through open table but they never marked us as having arrived. Open table contacted me asking why I missed the reservation when I had not. As we were getting ready to leave I went to the bathroom and there was a very messed up girl who had thrown up all over the floor and told me someone had put something in her drink. I was obviously very concerned and wanted to make sure she made it somewhere safe. A bus boy and waitress came into the bathroom and seemed very annoyed, which is understandable, but also seemed to think this girl was just very drunk. It was quite early in the night for someone to be that drunk (maybe 7:30). So either this girl was over served, came in very drunk or was drugged at the restaurant. In general the waitress’s attitude was very concerning and the entire situation changed my impression of the restaurant and staff.
This is our new favorite for chicken & waffles, a must-have here. Also try the corn hush puppies.
Cocktails here are amazing too. Highly recommend the Bloody Maria and the Tijuana Tea Time.
Food was great. Service was incredible. We had one waitress and each time other servers walked by they asked if we needed anything. Awesome experience would highly recommend.
Wait staff was friendly, restaurant was colorful. It had been raining and apparently there was leak by the wall near where we were seated so there was large puddle and several rags which remained there for our entire visit. We were served quite quickly after we ordered.
The salsa a chips were all right, but the tacos, though edible (barely), were not anything close to authentic. Even though the place was only about 1/4 full, our waiter took my plate away before I finished eating. I actually HAD A TACO IN MY HAND when he took my plate away. Luckily I still had my appetizer plate to put it back down after I took a bite.
My date and I decided to share the dessert (there's only on on the menu)--churros with ice cream.
Churros were greasy. The salted caramel ice cream came with a gelatinous goo that made me swear.
I ordered coffee, which AFTER my server brought it, he told me was made that morning (it was now around 2pm) and they no milk or sugar.
I'm assuming since it's a chain the food at all will be the same. I can only hope the service might be different at the other locations. If nothing else. It gave my date and me a good laugh.
Margaritas were good, should have committed to a pitcher at the beginning of the night. Free foosball, but table isn't in the best shape.
Anniversary - Fun & Cool Experience! The artwork is awesome!
Great space, fast service, good menu design, chips and gauc were extremely salty, tacos were average
Such a great spot and amazing tacos. Loved the outdoor space but will definitely come back in colder weather to sit inside. Loved so much.
I want to really like this place since it's got a fun atmosphere and lots of potential. Unfortunately, the food just isn't very good. The service isn't great either. Fun place to grab a drink, but that's about it.
Chill date vibes and good excuse to drink tequila on the first date lolz
Service was great and the sangria was tasty and strong! The food however was over priced (who makes you pay for chips and salsa) and gross! None of us finished the meals we got. I recommend going for drinks only.
Great service and fun vibes! Happy hour is a good deal Monday-Friday
