Tuesday - Saturday: 11:30am - 11pm
Food was excellent. Service needs some improvement; it was hard to get our waitress’ attention, although the restaurant was nearly empty. Still, since the food was so good, I’d recommend this!
Great food, nice atmosphere. We went here for a birthday and it was a great time!
Party of 7. Lunch. Early at 1145am. Our server obviously forgot to put in one of my guests' order. 4 tacos. 2 of 2 different kinds. Pretty easy. No modifiers. All 6 of us were done eating. We kept waiting. She didn't even apologize until I called her over (for the 3rd time) to ask why his order was not here yet and that she obviously forget to put in his order. She never admitted to forgetting to put his order in while every other table around us that came in a good 30 min after us, got their order. My guests started to give their food to him.
Biggest surprise was that the manager was never told. I dont even think there was a manager. She didnt even take his 4 (or at least 2) tacos off the bill. She got our appetizer order wrong, too. And to top it off, they added an 18% gratuity on my bill of over $220. I didn't want to embarrass my guests so I signed the bill, walked to the bar where she was, and told her I was surprised she didnt even bother apologizing and comp-ing the one meal.
Never going back for sure.
They had so many cyber take-out orders that the guests in the restaurant get ignored and sub par or horrible service.
Delicious food but lots of extra cost for small servings. A $1 charge for pickled carrot, onion turned out to be a tablespoon of the vegetable which would have been free at another restaurant. Small guacamole and chips serving in comparison to other restaurants.
Our party of 4 tried a little of everything from the menu and all of us were impressed. Surf and turf burrito was excellent, as were all of the tacos we tried...including the fried chicken taco and the nachos. Good beer list and tasty margaritas. Only drawback was speed of items from the bar... but that is hardly a real complaint since we made sure to get there early and had plenty of time for a relaxed meal and drinks before our show at Pantages.
Very good cozy casual tasty 😋 restaurant to recommend to everyone
We really loved it. The guacamole was unique and tasty. The taco's were excellent and the margarita's even better. :)
Great service, Great Food, Atmosphere was awesome! They were very welcoming to our group and the service was fast, professional and and friendly. Th food was awesome! We loved the appetizers, and bowls...the burritos were a hit as well! Thank you for a very nice experience
Ordered the jalapeño margarita, jackfruit taco, and fried chicken taco. Everything was delicious. I highly recommend. Service was good too.
I wish Danny Trejo would have been there . I came all the way from San Jose.
Expensive food and drinks for a Cantina, very salty food, men's room horrible smell. I expected more.
Love the food there skip the dessert
Loved the diablo shrimp tacos! Fresh salsa was delish!
Good place for both adults (upscale Mexican with a bar) and children (many food options that they like and down to Earth feel)
The Brussels sprouts were amazing as was the guacamole and tacos.
Tacos weren't exceptional BUT they were good and worth it! Good food for the price. Also they have 2 vegan tacos, which most places don't have at all. We had a great time. Would definitely go back.
We had to ask for another soda for my son because it was carbonated and the flavor was not there, and for my husband they took too long to get us his margarita but other than that the experience was great!
We had a show at Pantages and decided to have a bite before and picked Trejo's Cantina and are very glad that we did. We had heard so much about it and like Danny Trejo, so we picked it. The food was very good and I'd recommend it to everyone for a quick bite! Thank you for the great experience. We even purchased a few souvenirs to take home! We will come again.
First time at Trejos Cantina and we loved it. Great food and great service. Bummed we missed meeting Danny Trejo by an hour. 😕
We will definitely be back next time we are in LA. ☺
It was our 1st time there and as we approached the restaurant it looked closed. The steel walls were down and there was no way to notice the place was open. We later found out that the Stella walls were down due to the heat. Oh yeah! The a/c was not working and it was not pleasant. The fans were working but it wasn’t cool enough especially when the sun was beaming directly at the restaurant. I know there are window shades but Trejo’s cantina has none. We were a party of nine and they out us at a able where we had no elbow room. After the chips and salsa and drinks, we were moved. It really can’t accomdatr big parties unless you want to sit in the natural heated side of the restaurant. The waitress over billed us. The only thing positive I can say was the food. The food was excellent. I had the blacked salmon and it was delicious. The carne asada had a lot of flavor and th burritos were huge. I would love to go again but the thought of eating my food in the heat doesn’t appeal to me. You be the judge.
Everything, and I mean everything was amazingly delicious. Not to mention the prices are beyond fair. The brisket taco was phenomenal , the dragon fruit taco was exceptional and the carnitas was downright delicious. Was everything I hoped it would be and more. Our server was awesome and super helpful and the register girl super sweet and offered to take our photos. Will definitely come back before we fly out next week ! Next stop, trejos donuts and coffee !
One of my favorite burritos of all time (Chicken Tikka) and the guac is perfection.
It was my birthday and I was visiting from New York and really wanted to try Trejos Cantina, and so we did and it was really good and when it comes to Mexican food I know what’s good and what’s not because am Mexican, but sadly on our way back to New York TSA took away my hot sauce that I bought at the cantina because it was over 3 ounces 😥😥. But overall really good experience
Love this place. Best burrito in LA!
Nothing more than a fancy chipotle as far as food goes. Table side service. Nice bar area. Good location.
Good food and drink. Atmosphere? not really. I thought it would be more a restaurant than a bar. Maybe "cantina" was a hint!
Went to Trejos Cantina pre Theatre at Pantages-food was amazing, attentive service, authentic and creative Mexican food. Noice level energetic as it was cinco de Mayo!
Great service, atmosphere and food and drinks. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday on cinco de mayo. We were seated quickly and service was wonderful. It’s a fun environment and we all enjoyed it. Delicious food and great drink options
Sandy was the best, I'm so happy I celebrated my Birthday there and my best memory I'll hold in my heart forever is that Danny Trejo himself sang Happy Birthday to me! Thank you... can't wait to go back... xoxo
YUP........................................Wasn't to happy
Disappointing to say the least. We'd been wanting to try this place, so we decided to go before a show at the Pantages. This place is dark and depressing, and is nothing more than fast food brought to your table. The staff acted like we were wasting their time. Not very attentive. We'd asked for guacamole and chips before our meal, but it arrived at the same time. Good thing we ordered that or we'd have starved. We split a two taco plate--thinking there would be a lot of food, like most Mexican cantinas. The taco was a little larger than a street taco and they give you about a 1/2 cup of rice and about a 1/3 cup of beans. The rice was nothing to write home about and the beans were just black beans out of a can. The blackened salmon was good, but as a taco, not so much. A store-bought corn tortilla wrapped around some salmon and a dash of cabbage and some watered down mayo? No thank you.
We went for dinner before an event at the Palladium. Our waiter was very attentive and sharp. Our food took a while to bring out but at least we had chips and guac to keep us sustained while we waited. I wish the food was a little spicier but I know they have to cater to Hollywood palates. The pork is delicious. My friends also enjoyed the fish tacos, cauliflower tacos and beef.
This was a very casual place. The food was pricey for the product served.
Everything was awesome! Food is great, waiting staff is great, place is great. Will definitely visit again
Great for happy hour and really convenient to go to the Pantages
Trejos is a solid choice for a day spent walking around the bustling Hollywood proper area. The cauliflower vegan option is especially delicious, and that’s coming from a big red meat eater.
Great meal and ambiance. Danny Trejo even showed up and thanked everyone individually for their support.
Tables were ready. Good service. Excellent food.
Server was good. Food came out looking a little sloppy. Wings were too hot to eat!
The rest of the food tasted great.
The afternoon started on a sour note when they didn't have either of my first two beer choices and I had to get up to order from the bar because my waitress had disappeared. The food was good not great, the serving sizes were appropriate. I was happily surprised to find pineapple in my Carnitas burrito. That is definitely not authentic.. we put pineapple in Al pastor, but not in carnitas. The waitress disappeared a couple more times before finally refilling my family's drinks.
