Necio is a real gem. It's small, the dishes are all delicious, and it is not too expensive. The pork belly tacos are the best in the state, and the mole for their enchiladas is a must-try.

We took advantage of a couple's Valentine's Day special four - course meal which included a bottle of wine. The dinner check was half of what it would have cost elsewhere on Valentine's Day. The staff were both friendly and personable. We were treated wonderfully. The food was delicious. The entire experience was a memorable one. We will definitely be back again!

Went here for Valentine's Day brunch. Big mistake, since the place was packed - every table occupied, no social distancing or 6-feet between tables, and many people waiting by the door. I wondered how could this be during COVID. I thought restaurants were not supposed to be at 100% capacity yet. When I spoke to the maitre d about it, he said that it would be a long wait if we wanted a table distanced from others. Our hunger got the better of us, so we stayed and had chilaquiles, which tasted good (not great), but the totopos looked like they were straight out of the bag. We'll probably come back to try other dishes, but only if I can be assured that they follow COVID dining regulations. Or whenever the pandemic is over.

The restaurant was packed and incredibly loud. I couldn’t hear my husband who was sitting across the table from me. Food wasn’t the best, but not the worst either. Overall a very mediocre experience other than the chicken empanadas with a mango coconut curry sauce which were delicious.

Necio is always an awesome experience . They were busier than expected, which is good for them but made service a little slow on the particular night we visited. However, we are still in restricted times, so we understood. The food and drinks are amazing. Support local!

I called the night before my New Years reservation and they said that had a table for us with heaters and then when my friends and I showed up the restaurant was closed and there was another couple there who was just as confused as we were. By that time all other restaurants were full and we could not find another reservation. Very confused and disappointed and it definitely put a damper on my New Year’s Eve

The restaurant was completely closed when we came for our reservation. I have no doubt they were planning to be closed and just didn't update their OpenTable availability, but that doesn't change the fact that we drove half an hour on New Year's Eve only to find a shut down restaurant that had accepted our reservation.

We made a reservation for New Year’s Eve and when we showed up, the restaurant was closed and completely dark. I understand not being open during the holiday but they should have taken themselves off of Open Table. 4 other parties showed up in the 15 minutes that we were waiting outside, we were not the only ones who were mislead. I was excited to try Necio but sad that our NYE dinner plans fell through.

My daughter and I went here for lunch on a Tuesday. The tacos were discounted $2 for taco Tuesday. We have to say, the food was so delicious! We each had 4 different tacos and the plantains with black beans. Each different protein on every taco we had was done to perfection. The pork belly was my favorite but that shrimp taco was also right up there... oh heck, I don't know, the carnitas was just as good. My daughter loved the el pastor. We will definitely be back. I had to return to work so we couldn't enjoy the margaritas but next time I'm trying those too. I'm pretty sure it was the owner who was serving us and interacting with us. Very attentive and very nice! Oh... I really love this part of town as well. It's got a charm to it making this a great place for a business lunch or even a romantic date.

My husband used to come to this place all the time and he couldn't wait to have me go. So we decided to go all the way there to get seated and given chips and salsa and never served past that. Waited 30 minutes and never even placed a drink order... So we left. It wasn't super busy as far as we could tell but maybe it was a one off. Wish I could have tried it but will not be going back.

Went to try this place for restaurant week but was very disappointed.
My waiter didn’t even know what I was talking about when I ordered the special advertised restaurant week menu, the quality of the food was mediocre and way over priced.

Not sure why this place gets good reviews. The pictures on opentable are not at all what the food actually looks like. The food is mediocre at best & came out luke warm. The queso dip is literally a bowl of melted velveta. The carnitas was greasy and fatty, rice was crusty and clumpy. The service was slow and minimal. Don’t waste your time or money on this place.

Fantastic service, very good drinks, and outstanding food flavor and presentation! Staff are extremely helpful, friendly, and always make a point to get to know their guests! This is a neighborhood gem! Extremely high quality margaritas and excellent flavor execution on food that is great value for the price. My favorites are jalapeño poppers, queso fundido, and chicken mole enchiladas.
