The empanadas were some of the best we have ever had, and the tacos were delicious. I recommend the firecracker shrimp & fried avocado!

Lago Taco is a must stop for delicious tacos, fantastic drinks and a good time! My partner and I eat here (or take out) regularly and it never disappoints! Highly recommend trying the carnitas taco and/or the portobello mushroom taco 🌮 🤤❤️

This was our first time back to Lago Taco after several years. What a great patio! It is a really fun space for outdoor dining and the food is great--lots of variety in the taco choices and the portion sizes are generous--three tacos were more than I could finish.

Drinks - Happy hour drinks are awesome. $5 for a large stiff margarita is a great value knowing you will be drunk after 2.
Food - I would not feed my dog with it. What a joke. Tasteless, flavorless, and lack any kind of creativity.

Food, service, the atmosphere is second to none.
During Covid 19 all servers wearing masks which I appreciate greatly. Will certainly be back meanwhile have a Bloody Mary here which comes with a deep fried pickle 👌 and their deep fried avocado 🥑 is amazing.

The wearing of masks was questionable.
The host was only wearing there mask part of the time and even than not covering her nose .
Waited 15 for server after being seated .

Second time here! It was a little weird when we were sat we were told we only have 1 hour and 15 minutes to finish eating and paying. It was nice to have a heads up and we figured it was because of COVID and capacity, but it was pretty slow. We had a couple joiners and had gone over our time limit but were still ordering drinks and chips after already eating our meals, and the bartender reminded us of the time limit politely but acknowledged they weren’t too busy but if they started to pick up we’d have to pick up and move along, it was all good! I only mention the time limit because I haven’t experienced that before, however they handle it nicely and didn’t make us feel like we needed to rush out.
