Hailing from Mexico, Volcano Rabbit is one part mystery and two parts tequila. It doesn’t follow the rules. It doesn’t always play nice. Volcano Rabbit wants a thrill. It craves a good time. Volcano Rabbit is moving in, and it’s thirsty.

Happy Hour: half off ALL tequila & appetizers & $5 drink specials
Taco Tuesday: half off all a-la-carte tacos & $5 drink specials
Weekend Brunch: Celebrate the weekend with bottomless bloody marys & DIY mimosas. Full a-la-carte brunch menu coming soon.

Service was exceptional. Went for Taco Tuesday, their vegetarian tacos and margaritas were on point. I will definitely go back. Thank you!

I read that the food was just OKKKK but I am a simple eater and I thought it was great! So did my picky family. Only thing is that we came for the Sunday DIY Mimosa and Bloody Mary bar and they “didn’t have it today” so that was a huge let down because we cancelled reservations at another brunch place that had way better brunch options!

Was recommended this place for my birthday dinner. The only thing I want to mention in this review is the service. maybe it was an off day for them. Servers paid no attention to our table. Seated at a table with no menu or silverware/utensils. Not only did the server forget about us... they forgot that they forgot about us... brought our bill to us nearly 20-30 minutes after we had asked for it AND had forgotten that they had given us our bill by bringing it to us a SECOND time!... Spoke with the manager and he was amazing. I’ve nothing terrible to say about him or the food and drinks. Loved the food and margarita flight. Will give them another try in the near future.

Beginning of the night started great and sitting on the patio was perfect. However, it wasn't pleasant smelling all of the smokers walking by. Maybe I would sit inside the next time. For street tacos, beans and rice, thought it was a bit overpriced. Cocktails were fantastic. We did have to wait over 40 minutes after dinner for our server to bring us our check. Not sure why, we even had to ask twice for our check. So that is why we rated the service so low.

Great food, good service, great overall atmosphere.

Some of the seating options are a little strange however. That room at the far back with the curtains drawn in front of it, to be more specific. It is an odd space with the tables pushed to the walls with a large amount of open space in the middle.

Food looks nothing like on pictures. Ordered the $20 octopus tacos because they looked amazing on photos here and instead received gray-brownish looking plate of food with old and cheap-looking AND TASTING rice and a mush of beans. No flavor in octopus. Overall extremely overpriced, music was loud for a place where you come to eat. Extremely disappointed. I was embarrassed with my choice because I picked this place for a large group of friends and it was a disaster. Overall, the quality of food was just poor and did not hold up to the expectations by a long shot.

Food was good overall. The pork in the carnitas was a bit chewy, however, the appetizers (guacomole and my girlfriend isn't hungry) were very good. My spicy margarita was delicious. Fun atmosphere. Service was a tad slow

Put us in a room for some quiet and then seated people next to us that were foul mouthed and cussing and loud. We didn’t stay for dinner left after appetizer. No frozen margaritas told they had “no blender “. Very disappointing !

If you are a taco connoisseur, you won’t be disappointed! The tacos are extraordinary, the tequila and mezcal list is deep and the salsas are tasty. The venue is urban casual. The only detraction is the loud driving base of the otherwise unidentifiable music soundtrack...

We used to love Volcano Rabbit but the food has really gone downhill! The steak fajita that I ordered was salty, overcooked and over charred. Also had way more peppers and onions (also over charred) than steak. Wouldn't order that again! My friend had the burrito and enjoyed it but my other friend ordered the quesadilla and said it was "mushy". Disappointing, I must say!

Great experience. Food delicious. Try the tortilla wrapped grilled. Amazing. Service-our bartender, Eric, from Asbury Park, New Jersey, was highly talented. He gave terrific food suggestions and is a master-mixologist.

The food was terrific - eclectic tacos and solid quesadillas. Service was friendly and competent. Be advised this is essentially a tequila bar serving tacos - not a bad combination, mind you, but not a restaurant really either. Food was solid - I would return for a late night meal.

The restaurant is a fun space and we had good service. The Salsa flight was good and I'm told the margaritas were good. The food was pretty good. We ordered a Caesar salad without the chicken and what came was Romaine lettuce and some Parmesan....no anchovies (which they brought when asked), no croutons....not much of a Caesar, although the dressing was good. I had the octopus taco. I order octopus a lot, and this wasn't stellar. Others' food looked nice, but wasn't sparkling in terms of flavor. The service was good, though.

We had a terrible server(Anna). Our drinks were always empty, served my fajitas with no tortillas. It took 20 minutes to get them. We all had empty glass's and was looking for another drink but she never offered but just delivered the bill. Food was ok and drinks were great when we had them. If we had a better server, there would have been at least 12 more cocktails on my bill. Her tip at 7% was to much for her service.

The first time I visited Volcano Rabbit- was a fluke. Just walked passed it and saw the cozy patio. Ordered shrimp fajitas with my guy and even brought my small dog. service was great, ambiance was great and then I was floored by the taste of the shrimp fajitas. Not a fan of bell peppers I asked the server to replace them with mushrooms. The dish was to-die-for. I returned to Volcano Rabbit a week later ordered the same item audit was phenom. I since revisited two additional times and love the food.

Very fun place. We got the salmon poblano and the shrimp tacos plus chips, salsa, guac. The shrimp tacos were pretty standard for SD - no complaints there; but the salmon was super awesome - not at all what we were expecting! Very pretty presentation and an awesome assortment of flavors and textures.

I also love the "My girlfriend's not hungry" item on the menu. We got a lot of laughs out of that.

Servers were very sweet, attentive, helpful, and friendly.
