Fajitas a las Brasas
served with peppers, charro beans, rice, crema, pico de gallo, guacamole, corn/flour tortillas
All a la Carte Tacos
Half Off Lobster Fajita
We had the Molcajete and the shrimp were over cooked and the carne asada was tough. Drinks are over priced for what you get.
Server put in wrong order & waited over an hour for it when it wasn’t even that busy, & still got charged full price for the inconvenience.
Fui con mi familia y pasamos un rato agradable en este restaurante.
Incredible!! Delicious drinks and fantastic food! Salsa trio and watermelon social punch are a must!!
Super good food. Chips and salsa were amazing. Maybe the best I’ve had. The atmosphere was upbeat. Energetic. High quality Latin food at its best.
1. Servers were inattentive. Waters filled once the whole night.
2. Drinks tasted like they used the same shakers to make everyone’s drink without washing after each drink.
3. Table wabbled and I had to fix it myself
4. They forgot half of my date’s meal
5. Surprisingly the actual meal itself was fantastic in taste. Highly recommend the snapper and the seared tuna.
Overall value for the service and cost we paid just didn’t add up.
I was very disappointed in this restaurant. The food was just okay, not great at all. Slightly overpriced for the quality. The dishes served in the hot bowls tend to overcook while sitting. The queso blanco had a weird, scorched milk taste. The service was great, but I do not plan to try it again.
Ordered fajitas but was given quesadillas. Service was great up until food arrived then it was underwhelming. Took over 5+ minutes to get a refill on water.
They were understaffed. The appetizer we ordered never did arrive, even after we asked about it but they still charged us. We asked for some additional items to go with our fajitas when they arrived and that never came. No one checked on us. We had to go to the bar to ask for our check. This place was recommended but I found it to be lacking.
A wonderful restaurant & our waiter was so kind & patient with how busy the restaurant was.
First time here and it was good! The food taste authentic and the drinks were delicious! I’d definitely go back and let others know about it too.
Had the seared tuna, it was incredible! Pineapple margarita was very delicious as well! Loved the overall vibe of the place and enjoyed our time there. Can’t wait to come back!
Our food took awhile even though we were one of 5 tables in the entire restaurant.
I only gave 4 stars for service because they just didn’t have enough staff. I really feel badly for restaurants right now. The manager and the hostess were pitching in. Despite just a bit of slow service we loved the first try of this restaurant. The Reaper Margarita was one of my all time favorites.
Entering El Bolero I was shocked to see how small the place was. Which is not a problem. It was a Saturday afternoon so at the time they had a DJ on duty which normally isn't a problem, but the music was SO loud that it was difficult to hold a conversation. When the waiter FINALLY arrived he couldn't hear me and I couldn't hear him because of the music. The wait staff wore masks which is a good thing. He had to come closer to get our orders so that kinda defeats the purpose. I ordered calamari for my appetizer, they forgot to cook it.. so my appetizer came about 2 minutes before our main dish. The food was SO SO, kinda bland in my opinion. My wife ordered a margarita and she said it was delicious so that was one good thing that happened that day. Unfortunately I will not be going back.
I shall return. Had the crab relleno, and it was delicious
Unique twist on Mexican food and great cocktails.
Uncomfortable chairs, not allergy sensitive
The music was too loud. We had a group of 7 and could not hear each other talk and were having to raise our voice to be heard. We mentioned the noise to our server and she was really sweet, but the noise level didn't change.
Amazing food and drinks. Very attentive wait staff. The food was amazing.
Quaeso lacked flavor. Portion for fajitas was small.
Wonderful food & Drinks
Angel was amazing! Definitely will come back just because of how great he was during our time there!
Food was bland at best
Good food. Ridiculously slow service. That seems to be the norm in many restaurants now though and the severs were doing their best they just seemed to be very short-handed.
El Bolero is always a wonderful experience! Everything is great. The food, the ambiance, the drinks, the staff. You won't be dissapointed. This is the reason we always come back.
I love this place. Our service was excellent, the food was great, cool location. I like the gold speckled (rather expensive) oil man margarita as a treat when I go there. Worth a little extra $. Overall, a really nice place to eat!
Terrible experience. Food and service was pretty bad. My daughter ordered a cheese quesadilla and got a chicken quesadilla. So they remade a chicken quesadilla again for her. Never did get a cheese quesadilla. Never received some drinks ordered. Had to ask multiple times for water. Ordered sunny side up eggs, got over hard. There were many other issues. Just a terrible experience all around. Staff was not warm or inviting. We were very kind & just felt like we were bothering them by coming to their restaurant. Many items we didn’t send back, we honestly just felt bad complaining. But the items we did send back never were made correctly.
This just wasn’t the restaurant for me. I didn’t love the tortilla chips, my enchiladas were bland, and my drink (the reaper margarita) was way too sweet. I’m sure other people would enjoy it more. I’m a little picky with Mexican or Tex-mex.
That being said, the service was great, and the decor was very cool.
Fabulous new menu; excellent tequila concoctions. Great service; just really, really loud. (because of the floors, sound bounces everywhere). But, we've loved this place since it opened years ago!
Terrible customer service and they weren’t busy. We had to ask someone to get us water and the waitress finally came over to our table when she had passed by us multiple times. The food was okay. The queso and fajitas seemed like they had been sitting out for awhile. Wouldn’t go back.
Menu was on a QR code, but the hostess had to old it out for you since there was only 1 copy of it. Food was okay, service is great.
Unique place to go for something a little different.
Very loud music at lunchtime
Food was excellent
Made a reservation and asked for a table. When I arrived I was informed that the only thing available was a Hightop,which i didn't want. I was told to either take it or wait 30 minutes. The reservation system asked was there a occasion which I indicated a birthday. That was never acknowledge. Poor planning or reservation system.The hostess informed me they count hightops as tables. Then don't offer a choice.
Had a great dinner here for my birthday. I made reservations only 2 hours before the event but they were still able to accommodate me and 9 other people. It was nice to be able to make a reservation & the table actually be available when you arrive. The drinks were delicious and the food tasted amazing.
Delicious; Very nice maître d’
Excellent as usal
Service was terrible. Waited forever. They refused to split the check. Queso was terrible. Food subpar. Had to send a drink back, too syrup-y.
What a great fun place to eat!! Everyone in the restaurant was happy!!! All of the customers looked happy and satisfied!! We were for sure!! Nice to find a good affordable place to eat!!! Definitely recommend!!!
