    The food here was great! Fast service and attentive staff. My only concern is the booths. They are designed for smaller people. I was a party of 5 full figured women and they seated us in a booth. It wasn’t comfortable. We asked to be seated at a table but the tables were too small for five people.

    The salsa, chips, and guacamole here are fantastic as is the service. My only complaint in is that the serving size of the guacamole has been reduced. We had burritos as our entree. They were good, but not as good as the appetizers.

    Went for a 21st birthday celebration to enjoy the "one and only" 56 oz margarita. It was delicious. Great guacamole. Loved the chicken fajita salad. What could be better? Stronger chips and stronger a/c.

    I dine here often and have never been disappointed. During the warm months I come for the frozen margaritas and they are always fruity and refreshing. One of my faves is the elotes locos (corn on the cob). The service is always impeccable. Our waiter explained the food and even some ingredients for my friend who doesn’t eat Mexican food often. It’s a popular place so I always make a reservation.

    The server we had was very rude and was being smart with me when I made it aware to him about an allergy of mine. They over salt their margaritas and when I asked for a new one with just sugar the guy goes and pours it into a new glass and puts sugar around the rim. Instead making me a new drink since it tasted very salty. The food wasn’t good at all, maybe I came at a bad time but I wouldn’t recommend eating here! Other then that the atmosphere/vibe is good for a night spot.

    Made early reservations for a Saturday- 5:30pm - and we were sat right away before the crowd came in. Very popular place. Food was good, drinks even better. Had a really tasty passion fruit frozen margarita. Shared various apps, guacamole and queso. Service was excellent and happy to see prices weren’t astronomical. Will definitely return.

    Food was just okay. Came out cold and the eggs on top of the chiliquilles were fried hard, instead of soft, and looked as if the dishes were sitting out for a while before being delivered. Service was pretty slow, too.

    great margaritas!! queso tasted a bit like velveeta but it wasn’t horrible. the grilled shrimp & crispy fish tacos were amazing. also the fact that guacamole comes with the tacos and isn’t charged extra is awesome. if you haven’t tried this spot, it’s a must!

    The service was horrible. I think they were overrun with people. But it took forever to get our drinks. And for some reason they never brought one of us our water, despite asking several times for it. The drinks were so so. I had a mezcalrita (good) and a regular marg (undrinkable). The patatas bravos were the worst I’ve ever had and came out after we were almost done with dinner. The guacamole however is fabulous. I got two tacos. One of them was great, the other was dried and inedible. Overall I think it was so-so. Half the things are great, the other half horrible. This place used to be the best and has clearly gone downhill with covid. Hoping it reclaims it glory soon.

    We have been to Urbano Mosaic District many times and were excited to try this location with visiting family members. But it did not go well. We were seated outside (in the street in a tent straddling the sidewalk) and must have drawn the short straw in terms of our server. He got two of the five orders wrong, including one that involved a food allergy. Cannot recommend this location.

    this is not the Urbano I remember from pre-covid. Worst margarita I have had in a long time. It was watered down and literally no tequila. Very unfortunate as I would typically stay and have several drinks after dinner. Not this time. Will take my business elsewhere.
