Went for taco Tuesday and was not disappointed. All four diners found our choices delicious. Drinks were very good and the prices were excellent. Will definitely be back and I highly recommend this restaurant.

I've had the Ahi Tuna tacos 5 or 6 times. This past time is the last time I will try them. The recipe has changed countless times over the past couple of years. Unfortunately, each change is for the worse...

Urbano is a very nice restaurant for Mexican food, but this time, we specifically asked the waitress to make sure our Guac did not have cilantro and knowing it was freshly made we did not think this was a problem. Well once she mixed it up it had cilantro in it. Also, it seemed that the platings were very underwhelming. Urbmno just wasn't s good as our last visit.

We absolutely loved Urbano! The streak rice bowl was amazing! We could not have been more pleased with our server! The only reason I am giving 4 stars was due to a disliked cocktail, it was just to strong. Perfect place for a date night! We will be back!

Go to Urbano a lot for taco Tuesday. Two weeks ago we had an extremely inattentive waitress who quite simply ruined our experience. We had to ask several different waiters/waitresses for simple requests that she should be completing such as getting another drink. Also when it was time to leave, we waited for around 40 minutes just for the check. This week, we had the same waitress and it was the same story. I might have to switch tables next time we are seated at one of her tables.

First time visit . My friend and I were disappointed with the portion of food for the money. We both ordered the chicken tacos. After we were finished eating it seemed like we had appetizers not a meal. We were surprised nothing else was offered with our meal, salsa and chips, or perhaps a side of rice. For our budget, everything was extra.

classic margaritas were too strong - too much salt on the rim
guac had too much lime
disappointed by pollo de limon salad - first bite of "chicken" required me to spit it out in a napkin, barely any meat in the salad, mostly scraps and cartilage, I pulled it all out to the side and only ate the lettuce for fear of making my husband more upset with our anniversary dinner

I really like it there but I do remember the Tuna Bowl having a lot more tuna in it. The waiter was very nice and all but I had to ask several times for more water.

We looked forward to this meal; we’d eaten at Tapas on Main previously and loved it. We anticipated the same experience here. Not so much. The entree the my husband ordered was not available, so he was disappointed. I didn’t care much for mine. The dessert that I wanted was also unavailable. However, our server was great and did her best under the circumstances. And the sangria was fantastic. Kudos to our server and the sangria maker! Oh- and it was LOUD in there. Maybe we’re just too old and grumpy. More sangria, please.

I got to Urbano all the time, multiple times a week. The food and service has gone down hill and last night was especially bad. I understand it was taco Tuesday and a bit hectic but I waited over an hour for my 4 tacos that were all over salted to an unbearable level. Not only that; but the size of the salsa is now three 1oz small containers when it used to be a bowl. It’s ridiculous to even have to pay for chips and salsa when I can go to Mesa and get them for free. I asked if we could have more since we were waiting so long and I was informed they no longer give free refills on the chips and salsa. I was also charged for sour cream that I never received. I couldn’t find the waiter to tell him to take it off. It was all around a terrible experience and I am extremely disappointed in the direction Urbano is going.

The waiter was extremely unprofessional. He was standing and speaking so relaxed like he was talking to his friends. When he took out order he was tried to memorize it instead of writing it out on a paper. Then he came back like 3 times asking what was the thing that we ordered. And he also did that with the table right next to us. Then the food was really bad. The rice was soggy and tasteless the same with the beens. I was expecting good quality food for the price. The waiter also asked if we wanted chips and salsa but never told us ahead we were gonna get charged for it. When we were done with our food and payed he never came back to pick up our plates. The manager had to do it for him and as we walked out, the waiter was at the door just chatting with the host.

Overall great experience. Food was fantastic. We were seated near a large group so the noise level was a bit high. Had two margaritas. The mango was decent. The original was better. Guacamole was amazing and the cod tacos were very good also. Ambience was very nice with the dim lighting. Will definitely return.

Server was generally inattentive, maybe had too many tables to cover. Entree order took over 35 minutes to arrive, they apologized twice but of course I had to pay full price. Good guacamole, but I thought small amount for the price. My wife’s plate was served 7 mins prior to mine, a huge pet peeve of mine to not be both served at the same time. 1st visit here, won’t be back.

Food was mediocre. Dined with Urbano Mex a few months ago had the same exact meal. Guacamole carne asada tacos organic margarita. Although the tacos were cold last time they had flavor. This meal was a disappointment. Service was also poor. I had to track down the waitress to order.

Our food was absolutely delicious! My only complaint is that they no longer muddle the cucumber basil margarita that they offer. I asked the server to have the bartender muddle it more and he came back a minute later and nothing more was done. I then flagged down the manager and asked him and he did it right at the table for us!

We LOVE Urbano! Food is fresh and delicious. Order the tableside Guac - you won't regret it. If you are a meat eater - the short rib taco is a MUST TRY! Does get busy so order a cocktail and be patient - it's worth it!

Urbano is a great casual place to go with friends, family, or event on an intimate date. Taco Tuesday is definitely worth the price and there is a very good variety of types of tacos. Their margaritias are amazing, especially if you like them a little on the stronger side! I would definitely recommend giving this place a try!

Ambiance was nice but food left something to be desired for the price. Guacamole was good but severely lacking in quantity. Tacos were okay but chicken in them was like something you'd get from a can. Service was kind but we waited too long for a reserved table because of a "glasses shortage." Waiter was nice enough but not on the ball.

Wonderful service in great dark sultry ambiance room. Nice bar. Food was good we had carnitas tacos and the rice bowl. Dessert was yummy as well. Sweet corn could use some work. It had nothing on awshucks...or even Chili's corn. Needs more, perhaps lime cheese or spices or all three. I love you Margarita was delicious!

Atmosphere is top on the list for this restaurant.

Food and Drink: Guacomole is crushed tableside if you're into that kind of thing. A nice selection of Tequilas makes the drinks you order even better.

Service is friendly and accomodating.

I have been to Urbano a few times and have enjoyed it very much. I was there Saturday evening with my husband and the service was poor. The margaritas were also not as good as when the place opened. They were very syrupy. The queso was gritty and not smooth. Im disappointed that it isnt as good as it was just a few months ago!
