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.

Love the food. Love the location. However, service was less than satisfactory. Sat in a booth for 10 minutes without anyone stopping by. Moved to the bar for service, which finally allowed me to order, but was nearly as inattentive. Disappointing that 3 people knew I moved due to poor service, but no one bothered apologizing for the oversight.

When judging mexican I always base it off of the marg and the queso. Both are great at TacoLingo. Also, the brisket quesadillas I dream about.

I am not sure if this is the normal experience or just mine, but I had no idea who my waiter was and everything that came to the table took longer than most taco/Tex-mex places. Drinks, apps, and entree. Every thing was good except the carnitas taco I had which tasted like it was the last of the meat that had been sitting out for hours.

Overall, unimpressed for the price.

Our service was not too good. We were having a little family Christmas dinner. Asked for frozen margaritas and got them on the rocks about 30 minutes later. That happened 2 times. It took another 30 minutes to get our check. I had ordered 2 regular tacos, I got 3 instead. Now don’t get me wrong, the food was incredible! Chips and salsa were great and the margaritas were excellent when we finally got them. Will we go back? Maybe...

They need major help in the dishwashing area. Half of our silverware was dirty and multiple cups were served dirty...lipstick from the last user and all. A few orders came out without the requested changes. The food was tasty.

The restaurant is beautiful, and the food is very good. There’s options for outdoor and indoor dining, and the outdoor seating has a great view. Unfortunately, our server was wearing her mask incorrectly so it is unclear whether or not the restaurant truly adheres to Covid protocols.
