I received a recommendation from OpenTable for Urbana, so decided to check it out. I had never been to the Packinghouse in Anaheim, so I did not know what to expect. What a great experience it was! It’s a small restaurant, so you’re either at the bar, sitting at a hightop in the bar area or at one of the six tables in the back. There was just 2 of us, so a hightop was best. We were fortunate enough to be seated in the first table next to the hostess stand, which I believe is the best table in the restaurant for people watching. Our server was great, and offered recommendations. We started with the Red Snapper Ceviche, which comes on 3 crisp round tortillas. Mmm! Main courses were the shrimp enchiladas and mole enchiladas, served hot with the perfect amount of sauce. We had the “Plus” margarita, which was exactly as described, “pure, simple, and strong.” Whole meal came in under $100. Will definitely come back!

The tacos here are THE BEST I've ever had! That is hard to say as there are a LOT of great taco places around Orange County. The Carnitas taco is by far the best one and suprisingly their veggie cauliflower taco was so good also! We got the Elote (mexican street corn) and it was so dang good I would have ordered 2 more for my meal. We also got spicy margaritas and though they were VERY spicy, that's how I like it so it was perfect. Be careful if you don't like too spicy. Alos, can't remember our servers name but she was ON IT and so great! Wish I could give her a shout out.

What a surprise! Many options and variations on their menu. The drink menu has almost as many options as food, lol. The atmosphere is themed and sit up front to people watch. Keep your phone in your pocket and enjoy!!

Loved it! Between the 2 of us, we had 3 different apps, 6 diff tacos and 7 diff specialty cocktails. If it feels alive on a Tuesday after Happy Hour cleanses itself, then I'm down with it. Bartenders were top notch and the overall the experience was what you want when you're in town for a convention and take a chance on somewhere new. #javiersirvinediehard

We went to for lunch for the birthday of one of my friends.
We ordered different kinds of tacos, shrimp ceviche, and squid ink risotto.
Food were a little spicy but tasty. We all liked them.
One thing, I forgot to ask them if there was any free dessert for my b-day friend.
But anyway we were too full to have any dessert.

Urbana’s food use to be delicious! Unfortunately, this is the second time I go and become disappointed with the dish I look forward to ordering. The papas con carnitas have less and less carnitas on it. The chips are extremely salty. The drinks are still good!

Great Mexican restaurant - bar in Anaheim packing house.
Had the crispy fish tacos and cauliflower tacos both were superb.
Had 3 of their traditional margaritas they were so good. Great balance of ingredients with
A generous pour.
Loved the vibe ,noisy , energetic with tentative service. My advice make reservation or you will have to wait for table.

Service was deplorable!! We loved our food but never had anyone come back to fill our water glasses and I waited so long for a margarita that I eventually cancelled it as everyone I was with had finished their meal and it was time to get the bill. Disappointing!

Our first server had to leave after we placed an order but didn't tell us. The server that took his place made us feel rushed and didn't offer to refill our drinks or check on us. We were still in the middle of our meal when the server gave us our check. The food was ok but pricey. The space was very small and limited since it's in the Anaheim Packing House so it was not easy having a private conversation as everyone could hear you.

A lot of people will like this venue- especially if you’re young. The food is good but this place is expensive for what you get and other options for Mexican food. It’s quite small and even on a Wednesday it’s packed with a long wait. The noise level is very high and don’t expect to have a decent conversation. Drinks are good but pricey and parking is challenging. This is in basically a large food court with many good vendors. May be good if you’re having a casual lunch or dinner with many people it’s different taste. Not really date material unless your in your 20’s. I had the spicy margarita which was great except that with all the ice you get a very small drink for $12.00. Tacos are quite good

We had a wonderful dinner at Urbana. We ordered several different dishes so we could share. Nathan recommended the mole enchiladas and they were delicious! I also love the Tiki drink that is served in the sugar skull cup. My favorite! Phil did a great job with all our drinks and Nathan checked on us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed. Great service, delicious food, amazing drinks!

We asked for a table and we were told it was an hour wait. I pulled up my open table app, booked a reservation for 15 min later, and easily secured a table. A silly, ineffective process which shows the hostess wasn’t well trained or they have some kinks to work out.

The pictures and the reality do not match.
The location is in the basement of a building which looks like an overcrowded cheap marketplace.
On top of it one of the rudest hosts I have ever met.
Avoid this place like the plague.

Food and table service saw great! Our waitress was knowledgeable and able to help someone in our party with food allergies. Tortillas were beyond delicious!!!!

My lower rating for service was because I was ignored at the front for at least 5 minutes. I’m hoping this was just a hiccup for that one night, and I’m more than willing to go back and try again.

Again, food and waitress were great!!

We randomly chose URBANA based on it’s proximity to the Honda Center and the intriguing menu. It was DELICIOUS! We had the al pastor quesadilla, snapper and shrimp ceviche, the carnitas sliders and of course the URBANA margarita...all on the happy hour menu. Then, carnitas taco, fish taco and enchiladas suizas. Topped it off with a Paloma, bread pudding and churros. SO good. We’re trying to find an excuse to go back since we live 31 miles away. 😬 Want to explore the other choices at the Anaheim Packing District.✅

The service was slightly less than the attentiveness needed, but quite friendly. We were there for the Cinco de Mayo Chef's 3-course. The delivery was overly rushed, especially dessert and that's on the kitchen putting it up. Sauce on steak (a ribeye that was on the thinner side and untrimmed) was very tasty but watery. Appy (a yuumy corn with something creamy and bone marrow bits to swirl) and steak were served on wood flat rounds, which was different. The dessert (a panna cotta with balsamic reduction berry) was spooned onto a wide flat and a fork. I've no idea why it wasn't presented in a smaller, shallow bowl accompanied by a small spoon, was a big miss for getting at all that lovely creamy + tangy deliciousness. Seating a little cramped in this spot, as its a tight capacity restaurant. Quality and flavor are usual solid here, so we return periodically to see whats good. 7 of 10 stars
