Great food and atmosphere. The prices were a bit high for what we got- 3 small tacos. The margaritas were delicious, but definitely overpriced as well.

Went there for a birthday dinner. Atmosphere was great. Tacos were okay, kinda bland. Sangria was yummy. Service was great!

Tacos weren’t anything special, the drinks were good though. The menu could be expanded a little bit

TTT was very accommodating for a retirement celebratory lunch. A group of 15 sat outside on a beautiful day. I'd try the food again. The mushroom taco was surprisingly very tasty.

The hostess was not so friendly.
Our waiter was friendly and helpful with describing some menu options.
The food was subpar, at best.
The ambiance was nice.
Id go back for drinks only. Will likely never eat there again. Disappointed.

Came for dinner with my boyfriend and dad on a Wednesday. We sat downstairs and it was noisy at first but the food was great. Only complaint is that you don’t get sides with your tacos and the chips are not complimentary. Been here a few times and service isn’t the fastest. But the margaritas are AWESOME

It was along wait for our server to appear, but He did apologize for the delay. However it was so loud we could not communicate the waiter keep holding His ear to let us know it was difficult to hear to Us even to place an order. The food is ok but there are many others I would try before going back.

Extremely overpriced. My boyfriend and I split an entree, and the tacos were over $15. They were tiny and the size of my fist and didn’t even come with a side! Ridiculous! Also, a small snack size bowl of guacamole is $10.

For Tacos, it is very expensive.

The food is tasty, but overall, the cost of the Tacos really turned us away from it. We would be willing to try another dish instead of the tacos.

Love this place so much! We’ve been to TTT ~5 times and Buena Vida 6. This time the music was way too loud though; to the point you had to borderline shout to hear the other people our table. Food, service, and everything else was great!

Great family friendly place. SUPER loud! So don’t go here for a romantic evening. It’s fun, energetic, bright and busy. We love their food but it adds up with drinks! We have gone several times and the service was inconsistent. Some times we go and have a great server who is super attentive, and other times I’ve had to go to the bar myself to get our drinks that sat for nearly 15 minutes (and we were 2 tables from the server station at the bar). Overall very fun place, delicious food!

We tried it out, it took about 10-15 minutes to get seated even with our reservations. We waited a while for drinks as we were informed bar was backed up, one friend ordered a frozen margarita which she was told the machine was broken and another ordered a mango margarita that had to be sent back, the 2nd try for her drink was much better. Food was tasty and served quickly. The biggest downside for us was how loud the restaurant was, to the extent you can even hear the server. Hopefully these are growing pains and the issues will be worked out

It is fun but sit outside - it’s super loud inside on the first floor and makes conversation difficult. Classic margarita and guacamole is good - my favorite taco was actually the mushroom, topped with cheese and potato crisps!

Food was great.

Server was crazy busy. Didn't come back with second cocktail at all... like he never asked if I wanted one and as if I never said yes. Some people have off-nights so I get it, can look past that.

The real rub was that it's loud. Extremely and uncomfortably loud. It's so loud we almost left early. You have to shout for anyone to hear you, and because it's so loud, people are shouting louder and louder at each other which runs up the volume even more. I would not recommend that to anyone, would not make future reservations, and would not go myself unless I could guarantee I'd sit outside or be there when it's well under half-capacity.

Mixed views among our group, primarily related to food. Some thought things were amazing (mushroom taco and mojito) while other tacos were underwhelming (carnitas and chicken). Neat space and excellent service.

This place has great drinks & tacos! They’re still kinda new, so the menu has changed a lot since my last trip (in May). This time, my friend and I each got a margarita (I opted for the hibiscus on the rocks & she had a frozen strawberry). The drinks were tasty & summery, but not too strong. We started with the chips & salsa (no longer gratis) & enjoyed them, especially the green salsa. We each had mix & match tacos for lunch—ironically, we both picked the grilled fish and garlic shrimp so we tried 4 in all (I also had a Baja & she had a carnitas). I really appreciate that they expanded the taco options on the new menu. Since I’m a pescatarian, I opt for the seafood options and liked the Baja taco the best (fried fish). This is a fun spot & I’ll definitely be back again! Of note, their patio seating is limited but worth the wait 😁

Very nice, friendly server. Had to wait a long time even for cocktails! Food was so-so and they were out of several things we wanted to order. Overall, disappointing.

We were very disappointed with the quality of the tacos. The pork was overcooked in the Al Pastor taco and the duck confit taco was tough. However, both the Baja taco and the Garlic Shrimp taco were pretty good. Extremely overpriced for the quality.

Will not return.

The food was amazing!! Best tacos I've had in Arlington so far. My only wish is that it was a little lighter and the music wasn't too loud. Everything else was delicious and sold at a great price!

Actually moved upstairs to eat at Buena Vida again, our second visit. First time showed some promise but this one was very disappointing. Chicken entree had surprisingly little flavor and lamb not much better - and lamb presentation was not appetizing, to say the least (see photo). Margaritas were skimpy compared to first visit (see photo) and server obviously didn’t have a lot of experience. Guacamole was again a highlight. Sorry, but won’t be back, at least for some time.
