    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.

    I am a 180 pound Latino man and I mean it when I say that I couldn’t eat these tacos. They were insultingly bad. I won’t go into too much detail but the pastrami taco(their most famous taco) tasted like freezer burn. It was cold in the middle. And that was one of the best tacos they had. Imagine everything else. Please do not eat here unless you are pranking a friend and want to see their reaction. The waitress was completely awesome though and please tip her because you shouldn’t shoot the messenger.

    I was really excited to eat here on my birthday. I had only been to the ones in San Francisco so I was excited this one was so close to home. Service was terrible. Food was okay. I’d honestly only get this place to go if I came back to this location or stick with the ones up north. Overall disappointed with this location. I’ve met the owner and even got a cookbook signed from her so can’t imagine she’d be okay with how this location is ran.

    Second visit to this upscale taqueria in MB. Ate outside at a parklet table. Good service, tacos all delicious. For an interesting taste twist try the pastrami (w/ house habanero sauce) or the vampiro subbing Cotija cheese for the standard pepper jack. The Baja fish taco was passable but needed a zippier crema/sauce finish IMHO. Guacamole could be colder and needs a little more flavor. Some salt, cumin, fresh diced tomato a few pomegranate seeds, lime juice a hint of sour cream and fresh jalapeños would do the trick. Salsa definitely needs to be colder. Was served room temp and though prepared using roasted tomatoes and peppers it had the consistency of some jarred salsas. Could have used more fresh flavors of onion, cilantro and fresh jalapeños. Chips were light and crispy and not too oily. House margaritas flavorful, I preferred the version with Mezcal as its taste strength cuts through the lime nicely for a good balance of citrus and Smokey flavor. Wanted a second one but alas I had to drive home. Notwithstanding the suggested feedback for this up and coming establishment, Vibe was good and I will likely return. Good for casual dining with family and friends or aloe pressure date followed by ab evening stroll on the beach a couple blocks away. Bon appetit!

    I think it has gone downhill. Fish taco was mostly fried batter. Very little fish. Pork taco meat was dry. My friends special steak taco was dry and no taste to the meat. You can’t rely on the table sauces for all the flavor. The meat itself should be flavorful and well seasoned. I need to look for a new taco place.
