Food, service and atmosphere are all terrific. My group had the roast pork entree, the shrimp and the steak...and of course guac, margaritas and chips. Everyone loved what they ate! Can't wait to go back.

We are never disappointed when dining here. The food is consistently top notch! The tequila selections offer something for every palate and budget. Cocktails are well balanced and down right tasty.

The restaurant is hidden behind large bushes that help to isolate the restaurant from the surrounding neighborhood leading to an intimate ambiance perfect for dates and small parties. The patio is great but small and typically overcrowded with private parties that can be a little inconvenient for actually getting into the restaurant. Food is excellent, loved the free chips, the only thing that could improve is the service. The waiter was absent and would pop up at random expecting you to be prepared and would immediately leave if you didn't know exactly what you wanted on the spot.

What a great restaurant! We were in the area for something else and wanted some food first so a friend pointed us in their direction and I'm so glad she did. We made a reservation, were seated immediately, and the food came out very quickly, but not until we were done with each course. Absolutely fantastic. Thank you!

We sat outside on the patio for a business lunch on a perfect day in April. They took lunch reservations which seemed hard to find in this area. Valet parking made it easy to get a large group in and out quickly. The inside vibe is funky industrial, the cozy outdoor patio was an intimate escape from the nearby street and parking lot. The guacamole was suggested to us with the free chips and salsa. It was fresh and chunky and stick to the chips delicious. All of the entrees were fresh, colorful and with a thoughtful presentation. This was a great choice for our guests with gluten free needs. The only down side was that this was a business lunch so we could not try the Margaritas, but the mint lemonade was delicious. Next time we will try for Happy Hour. This place gets 4 pinatas for the colorful food and fun!

I cannot say enough good things about Yxta Cocina Mexicana. The food and service are consistently on point. If I lived closer and was not so busy I would dine there more often. Go for happy hour and order the tacos from the happy hr menu along with the duck taquitos. Don't forget to order the flan (leaving room for it is up to you), either way, order it and you won't regret it. Ask to sit in Juana's section. She's an absolute angel.

We sat outside which was fine. Inside noise level was too high for conversation. Chips for salsa were fresh home made and very tasty - probably ate too many - We all had taccos and enjoyed them though later felt rather "heavy". Freshly made fruit drinks were wonderful and the flan which 3 of us shared made a nice final touch. I will probably go again. Those chips were soooo good!
