Excellent place- started with Cucumber Margarita! They are a caring staff. Food - pork belly tacos and fish tacos delicious. Guacamole and chips were also good - chips were light and crispy. The corn fritter was also astoundingly different and delicious. Not run of the mill Mexican. We will be back!

My daughter wanted to have a brunch for her birthday. We were serviced right away. Our waitress was very attentive and she made room to add three more guests. We were a party of 20 and we all had a blast!

Wow! It felt like a private party and I'm so glad you all had fun. We had fun serving you. $15 Bottomless Mimosas are always a good time and our birthday celebrations are sparkly and super memorable. Thanks for choosing Takito. Hope we see you guys back for more gatherings. Consider joining us for New Years. Cheers!

Takito kitchen was fine - tacos were good enough, but nothing to write home about. I'd consider going back for taco Tuesday when you can mix and match and they are cheaper, otherwise, I likely wouldn't rush back.

Hi Amy, Thanks for visiting our small, independent business. We've just launched our Fall menu to highlight the best of the season. Think satiating skillet omelettes with locally sourced root veggies to make ratatouille and tantalizing Calabazita a Mexican corn croquette among other additions. Complemented by a Fall drink menu, I expect your next visit will make your tastebuds smile.

Wasn't very busy when we went for my birthday, but it was a good experience. Aurelio, our server, was informative, friendly and fun. Loved the fish tacos and margaritas. Pineapple guacamole was yummy! Birthday shots at the end was a great finish to the experience.
Would've liked bigger portions of chips, salsa and guac

It is not a pretty place, music was way too loud, there were flies everywhere, one of the glasses they give us was extremely dirty, and it was way overpriced for the experience that we have. We were a group of 4, and we paid $350 for 3 drinks each, 2 appetizers for the table, and 1 order of tacos each. Definitely not worth it.

There was confusion about who was meant to serve us our entire visit which resulted in us having to flag multiple people down to be served every time we needed something. The esquites was terribly burned so we couldn’t finish it and the mango margaritas were yummy but didn’t taste a thing like mango. Really bummed about our experience. Was looking forward to this.

We ordered the shrimp ceviche and queso for an app. The ceviche had maybe 4 shrimp in it.. it was more of an arugula salad with a few shrimp. The queso was inedible. It was thick and lacked the ability to dip chips at all. It also came with two mushroom slices. For our entrees, we got fish, steak, and barbacoa tacos. The fish and steak tacos tasted old.. like they fried the fish the day before. It was almost hallow on the inside. The barbacoa was good. The staff was really nice and I liked the ambiance. It would be a solid place for a few margs but the food was subpar and not worth the price.

Had a wonderful birthday brunch. The staff treated us warmly and made sure our bottomless mimosas were always bottomless! They surprised me with a fun birthday event, complete with shots, a sombrero and a sparkler. All my guest enjoyed the food and the ambience. Would definitely recommend and come again!

A little pricey for the portion size . Rice is so inexpensive yet the bowl is tiny . Tacos cud be slightly larger , tortillas being inexpensive as well . Good flavor . But if ur dinner is 100 including 4 beers you want to have some leftovers . This isn’t fine dining so slightly larger portions Wud attract more repeat business.
