    I used to get chicken Tinga tacos that were very good, but they no longer offer those and the replacement is tasteless. The tacos seem smaller that they used to be. Probably will take a break until they return to their previous menu.

    So happy to have this restaurant in our little beach town. Everything from the chips/salsa to the beans/rice and the tacos are so good! We had the asada, grilled fish, and carnitas tacos and they nailed them all.

    Fun atmosphere and good food. Salsa & chips on table were very good. 2 of 3 tacos were tasty with the carnitas not quite up to par. Very appreciative of their attentiveness to my sons food allergies.

    This was a first time I have returned to this restaurant in a year. What a change. no longer a nice comfortable restaurant with delicious creative food and great drinks. We experienced a loud, over served barely legal group on one side of us and a staff of employees bustling around but not very available (two employee girls standing by the bar singing and dancing and cussing at another employee). Atmosphere was awful and can't believe the tolerable change management accepted. The restaurant was sooo loud and it seemed as though the music was turned up to compete with it. The food was meeh, no longer a delicious delight but more of a slapped together version of its once creative version (how does a taco place run out of avocado?). No longer the original version, not worth visiting again. Do not recommend, not worth the price 7.50 a taco

    Hostess and wait staff were outstanding! We had a reservation Saturday, 5:00 for 8, which increased to 12 by the time we arrived (from a beach day). This did not throw the Hostess off, she was friendly and quickly had our table for 8 set, explaining we’d have to wait for the table next to us, paying their bill, which worked out perfectly by the time everyone arrived in our party. Drinks/appetizers/order were all taken and received very quickly and the many staff that served/filled water/chips/salsa were all super professional and friendly. Food is high quality and while it’s pricey, the smaller “street tacos” are over flowing with meat/chicken/fish. Baja fried fish and Tikka tacos are my favorite; queso app is really spicy and good, great guacamole, salsa, chips, drinks. Afraid the steak was pretty fatty/chewy in the Vampiro taco, which was the first time I’ve tried it. It’s a casual, fun place for a great meal with friends or family and not be rushed. I highly recommend, it’s one of my favorite places in MB!

    Went for the 3-6 weekday happy hour. Had lunch there before and knew the food is good. One of the happy hour options is a generous pour of Tequila, a Tecate and a choice of Taco for $14. The shrimp taco was delicious.

    Let me start off with a good. The fish taco was fried perfectly. It was hot and tasty. Then Lehre are the bad aspects of Tacolicious My friend and I went to the restaurant for the Dine L.A menu. They told us, since it was Cinco de Mayo, they were not honoring the event. That was a big disappointment since we drove 20 mins specifically for that menu. There was nothing on their website indicating that May 5 would be excluded from Dine L.A. The manager gave us an ambiguous answer to our complaint. He said that he was going to give us a discount but it was unclear what that meant. Was he going to honor the price for the dine la menu? Who knows. The guacamole was bland, and the other tacos were mediocre. The waitress with passive aggressive.

    Went for their Dine LA menu. Started with the queso appetizer, then the salad and two tacos- one chicken tinga (the chicken was very tender)and one fish taco. Churros for dessert! Lots of food for a great price! The margarita was tasty! Everything was very tasty!

    Our family of 5 went during DineLA so we could enjoy a variety of foods. First off the waitress had no idea how to put our order in and did not explain how the plates were going to come out. Food was coming at all different times including our toddlers food which came out with the appetizers. They did not bus the table so we had no room for the food as it was coming out. All of our tacos were on one big platter and were super greasy! The grease was dripping off our fingers! I had to stack plates and ask for them to be removed. The waitress came to bring us the check and did not even realize we never got our churros we ordered. I asked for them to go and it literally took 30 min!!! I asked several times how long it was going to be and she kept saying, they are almost done. We would have left before but we couldn't find the waitress to pay our check! My husband, our toddler and I left and my 12 and 14 y.o. waited for the churros because they really wanted them. They were not even good and such a waste of time. All they got was an I'm sorry your parents got upset there was a mix up in the kitchen. Such a poor way to handle the situation. We will never be going back!!

    Our table of five loved our tacos. They're about as good as any I've eaten in L.A. I had the grilled fish, grilled shrimp, chorizo, and fried avocado- just the right amount (I have a fairly big appetite. Others in our party ate two or three). Fish taco also available fried and is also excellent. Chips and salsa are much better than at most other Mexican restaurants. Mia (alcohol-free cocktail) was very tasty. Only drawback for us is the indoor space gets loud so we prefer to sit outside, which the friendly hostess obligingly arranged for us. Service is cheerful and warm. Highly recommended.
