When we arrived to the restaurant the hostess seated us rather quickly, however the table wasn’t fully set for a table of 5. There were only 4 chairs at the table and the hostess didn’t come back to fix it after seating us. We had to ask someone else for an extra chair. Then we sat at the table for 20 minutes before any waiter attended to us. The food overall was pretty good and the naked rita was delicious.

Food was fresh! Service was good. Sitting outside you can hear the cars and street noises but it’s not too long that you have to scream across the table. I enjoyed the ambiance, noise included.

Signature Chicharrónes are a must have. Shrimp tacos were divine. Great service, great food. Manager checked up on us twice. Going back! And Groupon was a great value too.

First let me start by saying that the service was impeccable. We had reservations and so we walked up and got seated immediately. The waitress was so nice and accommodating. The problem was that the food was terrible. I barely ate. We ordered the appetizer with queso, guac, and salsa and found it underwhelming. I got tacos and they weren’t anything to write home about. My friend got a veggie burrito and enjoyed it but said it wasn’t enough to make her return. Our drinks were loaded with alcohol which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but we are lightweights and couldn’t really enjoy them. If you’re in Miami, skip Naked Taco and try Cuban food at Little Havana instead.

The staff was extremely rude and inattentive. We had already paid for our meal but was waiting at the table finishing our drinks and the hostess came up to the table and rudely asked what we were doing. When we told her she said well you have to pay first you can’t just leave. We explained to her that we paid already and she was very rude about us waiting and finishing our drinks. Also our waiter was very slow. We ordered appetizers and had received them but he didn’t come back for another 30mins to take our meal order. The food was not that great. My burrito bowl did not come as I expected from the menu and the fish was dry and over cooked. I will not be returning nor would I recommend it to a friend. It was expensive for Applebee’s quality food and experience.

Neighborhood seemed a bit rough. The restaurant had 2 security guards working on a Monday evening. Seemed like it was necessary to have them but it was a little unsettling.

Amazing tacos and service. Jose was our server and he was phenomenal. The drinks were great, we ordered the cheese, guacamole and salsa with chips and the lemon pepper fries. The lemon pepper fries had a hint of lemon. The steak and mushroom taco, lobster taco and shrimp tacos were the best. We also had a americano and carnitas tacos and those were just ok.

The food quality of Naked Taco has went down tremendously and the ingredients used are of a lesser quality. We have eaten here in the past and loved it, but you can definitely tell there has been a change in ingredients and perhaps kitchen management. Extremely disappointed.

Went for taco Tuesday. Service was great. Margaritas were on point. Wish they had more taco Tuesday offerings. Tried a couple of the tacos. While the chicken taco was delicious, the steak was tough and dry.

Good wasn’t that great. The ahi tuna nachos was just three huge wontons loaded with tuna. I was expecting a real plate of nachos. Also, the tuna was over seasoned and salty. The tacos were pretty good, but not great.

Birthday celebration. We wanted outdoor seating but didn’t realize how loud the music would be so we went inside. Inside not as interesting as other restaurants nearby. Food was very exceptional though, 10/10 but after we were served our waiter took a long time to get us the check as we ended up waiting a solid 45 minutes for him to even come back to the table to check on us. Not even that busy for him to take a long time, and it was very clear that we were finished with our meals and ready to go. For a birthday celebration, I wouldn’t recommend coming here. But if I were just lookin for good affordable food, it’s a good place. A little disappointed for overall experience...5/10.

Our main entrees (tacos, fajitas) were pretty good. My wife and guest especially liked the lobster tacos. You definitely are paying a premium to eat in South Beach, but we expected that, and it's in-line with every other restaurant in the area. Maybe I'm a bit spoiled from spending years living in Phoenix and Austin, but the salsa and queso were some of the worst I've ever had. Think Pace Picante + queso from a can in terms of flavor. Absolutely abysmal is the best way I could put it. No exaggeration that the only place I've had worse was Casa Bonita in Denver. That said, our server was attentive, though he forgot to ask my wife for a drink order after taking mine, which was definitely not the end of the world. I will say it was obvious he was trained to turn over tables quickly, and we felt a bit rushed for a ~$200 meal, but again, I sort of expected this in SB, so not a huge deal, but something you should be aware of.

Loved the Philly cheese steak taco, elote and of course the margaritas. My husband said the Americano taco was very good as well. We also got the dip trio. All dips were good, but not the best we've ever had. This can easily get expensive if you like to eat a lot since just one taco is like $9.

The food was OK. We were in a back room and there was a woman at the bar who had an annoying dog that barked the entire meal. it was quite surprising that none of the wait staff said anything or did anything. Experience was nothing special
