Sat on their outside patio. They have some cooling fans going which helps some. Patio is a little loud from the music they play, but we were sitting under the speaker which might have been part of the issue. It does make for a lively atmosphere. Our server was very friendly and attentive and the food came out fairly quickly. We received a basket of complimentary chips and salsa which were hot and fresh. We both had fajitas which were very good, came with rice, beans and all the fixings. Was our 2nd time here and once again enjoyed our experience and we will definitely be returning!

TERRIBLE!! Food was good but the service ruined it. Our waiter could have cared less that we were there. We had to keep flagging him down, and he got my husband's order completely wrong and didn't even act concerned or apologetic. Might have well been being served by my teenager. The loud music and flies around the table might have been better tolerated for this birthday celebration but not a chance with such apathy from the staff. Will not be back. If you book this place through OpenTable be sure and check the app so the restaurant doesn't report that you no-showed like they did for me.

New to downtown Dallas so trying out all the restaurants in the area. As Mexican restaurants go - I liked the variety on the classic items on the menu, sat outside which was nice and lively, server was attentive, food came in a timely matter but didn’t feel rushed either and we had guacamole, fajitas and an enchilada and everything was very good. Will definitely add Taco-Lingo to our rotation.

Service has become “hit or miss” here lately, and it was definitely a “miss” during this visit. Unfortunately, it looked like the server just had too many tables to keep up with.

I come here for the convenience and the food. The food was great, as always. I can always count on that consistency.

Lots of flies in the restaurant this time. So many that the hostess brought a “propeller” of sorts to leave on the table to control the flies. I’m disappointed that even necessary.

Although they were short staffed i loved this location & atmosphere. The food was delicious for taco tuesday. The house margaritas NOT SO MUCH. All good because the Paloma was good and so was the guacamole. They validate parking in the garage too

This was the 3rd time we've been - Had our oldest son& his girlfriend with us. we bragged our good food & service was. This time is was obvious they were understaffed. Our waiter was friendly but my husband had to go up to the bar 2 times to pick up our drinks-they had been sitting there waiting to be picked up. Food was out of the kitchen fast and it was hot and good. We noticed one server was waiting tables and working behind the bar. Hopefully, if we go back again service will be better. Need to hire more people.

A place to eat, drink and relax and socialize! Wish their servers were more interpersonal, with good music and the area it’s in, you would think the servers would be more open and lively! Management is great tho.

It's Tex-Mex. We had tacos (brisket and fish) and they were good. The guac was tasty too. Margaritas were nothing special. A bit expensive, but it's Uptown...

Visiting Dallas for a hockey game and tried Taco Lingo based on reviews. We had Queso and fajitas and both were outstanding. Highly recommend this place. Not only was the food and service great, the prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend!!

I was very disappointed with the service I was provided. I’ve been to this restaurant several times and always have received extremely slow service. I enjoy the food and the atmosphere so I continue to eat at Taco Lingo. This time was not much different. I made a reservation for 8:30pm and was shocked to be told by the hostess that reservations made the same day were invalid. She told me the manager had mandated that so I asked to speak with the manager. Initially I was greeted with annoyance. The manager told me they were too busy to seat me and two friends even though I could see my name on the reservation list. I asked why my reservation was invalid and was told same day reservations were not allowed. If same day reservations are not allowed then they shouldn’t be available to book. Iwas then told my reservation was going to be deleted and I could be added to the waiting list of a wait time if 1 hour and 15 minutes. There were several tables currently open so I asked why we could not be seated at an empty table and was given the response that they were reserved for 8:00pm. At this time it was 8:20pm. Long story short, I was completely dissatisfied with the service we received and cannot believe the rudeness of the manager of the restaurant.

We dined outside on a nice warm Saturday night, the drinks are good and strong, the white queso was delicious! We regretted not ordering the bowl instead of the cup. My enchiladas were good, they are tex-mex style, which is fine with me, the tortillas were really good too, they make them in-house. My fiancé ordered the hamburger tacos, he said they were okay but something he would not order again. The server was attentive and when we walked in, the hostess immediately gave us hand sanitizer when we got seated outside which we really appreciated. The only thing we found odd was the music that was playing outside on the patio, this being a tex-mex restaurant the music was not at all in tune with the concept of the restaurant. They played Mambo Number 5 two times, we couldn't help but laugh! They also played songs from the eighty's, very strange music selection. Please update your playlist.
