Love the food! Carne asada is the best. Seasoned well and cooked perfectly for my taste. Been twice and will be back again!

Their food is soooo good and tasty! I highly recommend this place and they started serving drinks (with alcohol) which was a surprise because the last time we came here it was BYOB.

My boyfriend and I live in the area and have heard great things about Sabroso. The food was awesome, the servers were very friendly and the manager/owner (?) stopped at our table to see how everything was. Very friendly atmosphere and unique space. It was a little chilly to sit outside but would love to go back and sit out there. One thing to note is that 75% of the parties had small kids/toddlers which is understandable considering the neighborhood. It was pretty disruptive because it is a fairly small space and it got loud so if you're looking for a more energetic, medium-loud enviornment or a place to bring a group this would be a good option. The food was really really amazing andI want to return to try other menu items!

Food was just ok. Beautiful patio and quiet location. Even with a reservation we had to wait 25 minutes, and someone without a reservation was seated before us, although we were promised the next table four times. Service seemed very disorganized.

The food was very good. The portions were actually a little large. We ran out of tortillas for one of our dishes. We asked for more to go and was charged almost $3 for three tortillas to go. I did not expect them for free, but I would have expected a couple more. We also tried the new margaritas. They were delicious, but pricey. Will definitely go back, but will skip the drinks. Our server was really nice and attentive.

Was sat on a concrete bench, but the concrete was not firmly attached to the base so the bench was lopsided. Service was slow, and the waiter did not know the menu. When I went to pay the waiter lost my credit card in the process. Manager was unapologetic about the lost credit card.

Very caring wait staff, different regional interpretations of Mexican food. Everything but the flour tortillas are made from scratch... even the simple syrup for drinks is home made, agave based. The rice and and black beans are outstanding... as are the various meats and the grilled shrimp taco. The chorizo was very lean. Very reasonably priced, huge yet cozy outside seating. I usually drink only standard margaritas on the rocks with no salt... yet I was very impressed with the watermelon-hibiscus magarita... very refreshing and definitely not too sweet. I've been here 2x in the last two weeks and will be back often.

One of the best brunches you could have at 11a on a Sunday, with the extra caveat it’s Father’s Day. Service and Food were great.
50/50 Chilaquiles were good, according to my pa, who is one one the toughest Chilaquiles critics around.

Shaded, cute patio + Byob = a perfect Sunday.

My boyfriend and I love coming to Sarboso regularly! They are a BYOB Mexican restaurant with delicious food, friendly service and plenty of outdoor seating. They recently were very accommodating with a large reservation I had booked last minute. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the perfect weather that day.

Food was EXCELLENT. I had a blackened fish taco, al pastor taco, and carnita taco. Each were so tasty with the al pastor coming in as my favorite. Love that the place is BYOB too.
Our waiter was so sweet and kind, and had good recommendations for my group. Thank you so much for your hospitality and great foo!

I've been here twice now. Love that it is BYOB and the food has been really good all around. It's a little pricey for Mexican food, but the quality of food has always been good! I've had the pork verde which was very tasty along with the carne asada. It was very flavorful and juicy. The guacamole has a little kick which I love and the chicken burrito was also highly praised!
