It was a girls night out and this was the perfect spot. We shared a bunch of appetizers and a huge margarita. The queso was amazing and so was the octopus taco. We will definitely go back.
I really enjoyed my experience. I had the mole and it was delicious.
Great drinks, enjoyed the music and ambiance. Really good service.
Our second trip to Volcano Rabbit and it was just as fabulous as the first! Too often, you try a new restaurant and love it the first time, only to be sorely disappointed when you return a second. Not the case here! We were greeted by the super friendly hostess, Brandi, and shown to our table immediately upon our arrival. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about not only the food but also the drinks offered. We opted for a ginger margarita and a smokey sniffer of tequila - both delicious. The shrimp spring roll appetizer hit the spot. We shared a couple of different types of tacos - excellent! This is a great place and a huge improvement from the Don Chido's that was formerly in the building. The food is authentic Mexican, the drinks are fabulous and the staff is top notch!
Service was great and the drinks were amazing.... Food was really well done and the quality was perfect. I would go there again anytime!
What an amazing experience! We’ll definitely be back.
We started off ordering cocktails; I am a big fan of mezcal, so I had the The Smoking Jacket and my boyfriend had the Mint Ginger Margarita. Both cocktails were fantastic!
We then moved on to ordering food. We had stalked the menu before going in, so we had a plan in our heads as to what we wanted to order. We started off by saying that we wanted the Queso Fondido to start and our waitress was perplexed that we wanted to order that! She gave us a very strange look as if it was weird we said that and proceeded to say, "have you had queso fondido before? to be honest, I think that's the worst app on the menu." My boyfriend and I were pretty shocked by this and kind of taken aback. I get the waiting staff giving their opinions, we most of the time value them! However, the way this was said made us think.. is any of the food good?!
She gave us a few minutes to decide and my boyfriend and I then said we would order the Shrimp Taquitos (we took her advice and did NOT order the queso), the plate of Sticky Beef Short Rib, I ordered the Ahi Tuna and Fried Pork taco, and my boyfriend ordered the Traditional Lengua and Chili Rubbed Octopus.
A few minutes come by and what comes out.. an order of the queso. We were SO confused and finally flagged her down saying we did not order this based off of her reaction to it which is why we ordered the Shrimp Taquitos. She apologized and said that the queso was on the house. We couldn't complain and bonus.. THE QUESO WAS GOOD! To be honest, ALL of the food was good. The taquitos had a great pineapple and chipotle lime crema, the sticky beef short rib tacos were probably Top 5 of my favorite tacos EVER, the ahi tuna was fresh and delicious, the fried pork was crispy, the tongue was new and different and the octopus was definitely the best octopus I ever had as well. Hands down, great tacos.
We get the check and of course the queso was included on the bill, luckily the waitress realized it before swiping my card.
Dining on the patio, I enjoyed char grilled octopus tacos and a side Caesar salad.
They were superb!
Excellent choice before or after nearby theater at the Balboa or Lyceum Theater.
Wonderful wait staff and good people watching.
Next door to Rustic Root, another popular restaurant.
