    Making reservations for the weekends was booked out for almost a month but I was lucky enough to get Valentine’s Day. First time here and the Dinner at Sofia’s Taqueria Taco & Tequila Bar…from the appetizers, drinks, entrees to the dessert, was very delicious, now this is what I’m talking about when we say we want good food. The queso fundido was great and so was the surf and turf. The churros with chocolate, glad I chose it. Music was entertaining and very vibrant place. Definitely highly recommended! Thank you to our waitress Chelsea, she was super nice! 😊

    Definitely the best Mexican place in town, it’s not Tex-Mex it’s true Mexican food ! Will go back for more for sure ! Great lunch menu and specials for $12.99 and 16.99.

    This is our third time here. The food is very good, but it is not a place for intimate conversation. Due to the popularity, good food, and good drinks, it attracts a crowd, which leaves the place a slight bit loud. It's not gonna stop us from going back, but just be prepared if you're going there. Great service Ashley was terrific.

    We went on Sunday afternoon to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We ordered as appetizers, the nachos with chorizo, mussels and Quesadillas. Everything was excellent. Main entrees were carne azada and taco’s with potatoes and chorizo and cheese. The margarita’s were very tasty. The only thing we weren’t satisfied with was their salsa. If they would have chopped their tomatoes smaller and add more seasonings. We loved our waitress, Kelly and the additional help were terrific. We will definitely be back again. Great afternoon! Love this place.

    The food was awesome; good selection and great taste! Service was very good and it's a nice looking place. The only negative I found was with the drinks. We ordered Patron margaritas ($15/ea). Not a bad price for Patron, however, the small glass was filled with ice and after 4 or 5 sips, the glass was just ice. Unacceptable.

    It was just ok. Would be good for drinks and apps but overall its just overpriced chain restaurant food. The wait staff was great and very attentive, we did feel a little rushed especially since it was 5:00 on a Thursday and not busy at all.

    Panda provided an amazing experience with meticulous detail to service. He provided a succinct explanation to all of my questions. As a tequila lover, the list is extensive complemented with all of the favorite Mexican brews (Tecate with a chilled glass). Highly recommend the birra tacos made with brisket!

    Let me start by saying the food was phenomenal. The service could have and should have been much better. We sat for 15 minutes before a server came to see us. The young man was nice and said they were short staffed. At first, we understood as that can happen sometimes. As the evening went on, we saw multiple tables being taken care of in a timely manner while we were not. The bussers and other servers could see us sitting there, would stare right at us but never come over. After sitting for another 20 minutes when our meal was finished, we had to go to the front desk to say we're done and wanted our check. The service was beyond subpar, and the food was quite pricey but delicious.
