Nice place to hang out on the patio but horrible food and weak drinks.

Really, the most bland tacos I’ve ever had.

We arrived at 7 PM and it was extremely busy. We got our table right away. Took a while to get our first drinks ordered. By 8 PM things slow down substantially. Everything was good after that. Our server was very good and the food was excellent as always.

Food was so delicious! Margaritas that I got were okay, the Ultimate was a little heavy on the sweet and sour. Tradicional was better. I got the fried avocado bowl and it was so good. Definitely will be going back!

My order was not as requested. Flour tortillas instead of corn. Incorrect veggie taco. Asked for mushroom got fried avocado. Server never asked if everything was ok. That said the food was still delicious and the patio is delightful

we enjoyed our time here. I usually don't ask a waitress to return the food when I get the wrong entre but it was the first time out since COVID pandemic and I wanted what I ordered. They missed the mark 2 times but my husband and always split our meals so it wasn't any big deal to share while waiting for the right entrée. Had a very nice time there.

We liked the menu and quality of the food at very reasonable prices. It was a beautiful day so the patio area was an added bonus. I thought the music was a bit too loud, the customers have to talk louder to be heard. We had a great server and the food was prepared quickly.

It was the first 80 degree spring day in a while, reserved a spot on their amazing patio. Shade was perfect and sun was perfect, ended up staying a little longer than just a meal to enjoy the great atmosphere! Will be returning for more patio time this summer.

We love Lagos Tacos and have been there dozens of times. However, since the pandemic their service has become chaotic. They have a line waiting to be sat, but have the same host running doordash orders, which seem to get priority over guests actually waiting to be seated. It’s annoying and I hope they can figure this out as it’s the norm for a while.

The food was fabulous. We ordered several different tacos (Chicken Tinga was the favorite) - they were all delicious. Great server - very pleasant and attentive. Has more of a sports bar feel with all the TV's. We will definitely be back but will eat outside on their patio when the weather gets warmer. For 4 of us, including bar, it was under $100. We thought it was very reasonable.

I had to go to the hostess to ask for a server to come to our table. The server was very nice. She brought the food. There was a long piece of hair in my husband's food. The server was mortified. They re-cooked it, offered us free dessert and did not charge us for our appetizer or my husband's plate. My shrimp was undercooked, but I thought I would just take it home and re-heat it. Typically we eat at their restaurant in Excelsior, but thought we would try this one since we were in the area. This was an unfortunate experience. They were quick to do what they could to remedy the situation.

Service was sub par. Waitress kept us on the “back burner” for our initial order and for drink refills. Food was good, if you’re looking for authentic Mexican cuisine, this is not the place to go. Margaritas were delicious, the ambiance was great, but the overall experience made it not worth a second visit.

Came for the happy hour street tacos, unfortunately the server told us it was only the meat options. I’m vegetarian so was disappointed that they did not have a meatless option for the tacos. Not sure how meat is cheaper than some veg or bean tacos?

What a fantastic uptown experience! We enjoyed our Sunday brunch and bloody Mary’s. Wonderful good and loved the take on huevos rancheros! So yummy. Very nice staff- loved every minute of our visit! Next time we will bring the kids. This is a must have and we will definitely be back again and again.

I really enjoyed the fire cracker shrimp tacos. The size of each taco was very surprising, they were way bigger then what I was expecting. Definitely spring for the queso dip!

If you want authentic tacos... not your place. They might as well of gotten their tortillas from the Walmart $1 section and thrown some ingredients in. Also, the chips and queso were subpar. Chips were freezing every time they brought them out. Food was cold.
Service is great but they need to step up their food game.

We sat outside due to COVID, but they lit a fire and a firepit. The food was absolutely delicious. We had the fried avocado, and--get this--my husband doesn't even like avocado but loved this appetizer! I really liked the individual taco selections--lots of choices and really good prices. We got the churro bombas for dessert. They were delicious. I'll go back!
