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.

As usual a great night at Urbano! The food is always fresh and delicious - make sure to get the guacamole. Taco Tuesdays are the BEST!

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!

I enjoy there food and there drinks a lot. But Saturday night was a different story. The tacos were just okay and they did not even mix the guac when we ordered it! The server was very pleasant and nice and thanked us for our patience on wait time from the host to getting our meals and drinks. We decided at the end to pay our tab and go to the bar for one last drink and the bartenders were extremely nice and they were quick in serving us as well. I am hoping the service was just because it was a Saturday night and will still give them another chance at some point.

This was my second time there. This second experience was awful. The service was slow. I asked for guac and chips and it never came, but my meal came way before I could get the guac. Every time we ordered drinks the service was slow. The waitress seemed a little too distracted and never really came to check up on us or if we needed anything.
