As a self-proclaimed french fry connoisseur, I’m always eager to try new takes on an already mastered dish. I expected to enjoy my tacos and cocktails, but was pleasantly surprised to be blown away by the fries at Picaro. On their own, the fries are well seasoned and crisp. However, it’s the additional toppings that tie it all together. The pico de gallo adds a fresh taste and the creamy smoky mayo gives it the perfect amount of bite. My only regret was sharing with my boyfriend because I could’ve ate it all on my own. Thank you Picaro for this dish! Your Pico Fries have left this french fry lover awaiting the day until she can once again eat this treat.

Ordered chips and salsa and guac, it was all quite delicious and fresh tasting. They have 2, 3 or 4 tacos in a meal, which is nice because you can adjust based on how hungry you are. I got chicken tacos which were a bit spicy and quite delicious. The ambiance was also really pleasant in Picaro. Would definitely come back next time I am in Saskatoon

Picaro has the best nachos in Saskatoon! Taco Tuesday is a great opportunity to try & share all the delicious options & flavor combinations. The service was quite slow despite a less than full house.

I've been to Picaro in the past and always loved it. Wasn't as impressed with the quality of food this time. I ordered pulled pork tacos and they were lukewarm. Churros were incredible. Services was great and it's a nice atmosphere.

Nice small and cozy. Great vibe. Table for 2 was tiny. Appetizers and mains came all at once. Cocktails were prices high(12-15$$) for the size of glass which was filled with one giant ice cube ( no exaggeration). Good food, but out of item we were hoping to get for the main dish. Cute bathroom with wonderful decor! Great Taco Tuesday special!

My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at Picaro this week - our first time there. Cute little restaurant, and our server was lovely. We both had fish tacos, I had jackfruit as well and my husband had chicken. Plus chips and salsa. We both preferred the fish tacos primarily because the housemate Pick De Gallo was fantastic and was so great with the fish. The jackfruit and chicken were also great but stronger flavours than the fish. We both thought the value was very good and will definitely be back next time we’re in Saskatoon.

Picaro is always a treat! Been many times, in large groups and smaller parties. The food is always amazing. the Rogue taco this time around was a falafel taco, which was very flavourful. The service was great, and we were given a complimentary dessert which was delicious, and the perfect size for an after dinner treat. One of my favourite restaurants in Saskatoon.

Delicious food and beverages. The four of us had a variety of tacos, plus side dishes and 2 different desserts. The pico fries were amazing and went very well with our tacos and there were lots for all of us to share. Our server was attentive, yet never rushed us. The new location is attractive and inviting. Noise got a little too loud for us as the restaurant got filled to capacity but nothing over the top. We will definitely be back!

I absolutely love Picaro - the drinks, the food, the service. It would be great to have a better ventilation system, as every time I leave there my clothes smell like a deep fryer! While the resto is more cocktail (esp. margarita-focused), the wine choices could be a little improved for those who are not cocktail lovers.

Tacos were fantastic, cocktails were awesome, best churros we’ve ever had. The music was loud enough you didn’t feel bad for talking at a regular volume, but you didn’t ever have to shout. Waitress gave good recommendations particularly with the cocktails. The drink price was a bit high, but we had a lot of drinks and each cocktail was 12-15 each. Food prices were great, roughly $5/taco and they were worth it.

Unfortunately, I REALLY wanted to enjoy the new Picaro in it's new location. I ordered fish and pork belly tacos and both were overcooked and dry. Our server didn't even ask how the meal was once, and brought our bills without us even asking. I was going top have dessert, but she brought our bills to our table so I guess that wasn't an option. And then to top it all off, she brought the machine for us to pay before we were even ready or had our cards out. Pretty bad service and food was meh.

Had a very nice evening with my sisters. Our server was awesome and came back several times to check that we had everything we needed. took the time to chat with us about other things. Had a good grasp on my gluten allergy, thereby I felt more confident in getting a gluten free meal.
All in all a good experience and would return for the quality food and service.

First door was broken therefore locked. I waited outside for a while. Ended up getting the server in the adjoining Restarant to help me.
I also wasn’t fond of the closeness of the tables and other patrons.

First time here & the food was great. Service was very quick for a Friday night and our server was very friendly and accommodating. My favorite were the fish tacos and chicharon fried chicken skin appetizer. They have plenty of taco flavor variations to choose from but it would be nice to be able to mix & match flavors. Decor is quite plain but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's simple & clean with a close intimate type setting. The only minor negative were that the cocktails were too stiff but some people may not mind this. Prices are high so be willing to spend for a night out. 4/5 stars will be back.
