Urban Taco Mockingbird Station
Red snapper & rock shrimp, pickled onion, pineapple, mango & lime on stone ground chips
The service was terrible and the noise was outrageous. You could not hear the person sitting next to you it was so loud
Great experience – we loved the personalized suggestions offered by our waiter. The most interesting item on the menu that we tried was the jalapeno peanut salsa. Definitely not something we would have ever ordered on our own but that we really enjoyed!
Love the food but really disappointed about differing responses to questions about food preparation. I was previously told the beans and rice did not contain any lard or meat products only to be told on a return visit that was not true--both the beans and rice contain meat products (lard and chicken stock).
The fish and veggie tacos remain tasty, but I am really irritated that I was served something I wouldn't otherwise had eaten.
I don't know what's going on with failing restaurants at Mockingbird Station, but this place should buck the trend. The food is delicious and the noise level is just about right. I was with a really picky eater and the waiter got the kitchen to re-make his entree (he can't eat onions, poor thing!) in about three minutes. I had the various taco plate along with wonderful black beans and those delicious cebollitas. Happy to go back anytime!
Went on a Friday night. We had reservations, and had to beg the hostess to seat us at an open table instead of the bar. She kept saying the table was for a reservation they had. We had reservations. My guess is she couldn't hear us over the noise of the restaurant. My husband had trouble hearing each other at our table, so much so, we resorted to texting each other. Our server also couldn't hear us, as was evident when our order was not correct. Food itself had good flavor. Might try once more on a less crowded night.
Wanted something for lunch within walking distance to the Angelika Theater and were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was and the service was friendly. My mom loved the ceviche and I liked my vegetarian tacos.
This place just isn’t what it used to be.
The food was devoid of flavor. I waited so long to get my main, which was a salad I almost canceled it.
There were 4 of us. We all agreed the place has gone down hill. We all used to love this place.
The drinks were also weak, we all ordered extra shots for our margaritas.
We won’t be back.
Excellent service from Patricio (waiter)
Excellent! Tried something new and loved it. Always like the whole experience so go back as often as we can.
We sat outside with our group of 6 and had a perfect dinner..
much quieter than inside. All the food items are good, and
it’s nice to have a big choice to mix and match,
The food and drinkss were amazing but the service was extremely slow and very inattentive.
The manchego cheese appetizer suggested by our server was very good. The chips were excellent and our entries were excellent. It's a bit loud but service and quality is excellent.
Fantastic food, creative drinks. Will definitely go back!
Quick service, authentic latino food, friendly staff, good seating indoor and outdoor.
If you want a different dining experience that's nothing but awesomeness, then this is it! And the dipping sauces are to die for.
Ceviche Avocado Tower and fried plantains was surprisingly delicious, not a fan avocado however this plate very pleasing. I love that the corn tortillas were homemade and made for a delectable bite. Fun place to hang with friends on the patio, btw drinks were awesome!
Great little place. Popped in here prior to visiting the meadows museum. Good food.
Fantastic food with smaller portions.
I have always liked Urban Taco, but their location-switch at Mockingbird Station did not result in even a push with the look and feel of the place. The old site was smaller, yes; but it had a cool, funky, and warm vibe to it. This new place seems to be trying to bring back the ambiance and decor of the Souper Salad reboots....and that is not a compliment. Sterile and bland, it definitely dinged my appreciation for the place. I’d rather it be a total dive than a hospital cafeteria. Maybe they don’t care because they’re going for the in-a-rush theatre crowd. Too bad.
Very different from the traditional Mexican food and very good!
Such friendly staff. Food was great.
The food is good, but that's about it. They need to do something about the multiple doors into the restaurant. Staff going in and out of the side door, causing cold winds to blow in makes for a not so great evening. Not many options other than sitting at the bar to avoid it.
Service and food were excellent!
Visited lately with my family and my best friend, as a suggestion from a good friend, pleasantly surprised by the great tasting food and beverages menu, sounds crazy but it is as authentic as it can be in such an urban setting and restaurant chain like environment, for causal dinning, I’ll suggested to every one!
Pineapple marg is amazing! Sitting on the patio is nice.
Easy quick dinner before seeing a movie at Anjelica.
Too long waiting time for the food
I've been dining at Urban Taco since I moved to Dallas almost 10 years ago. The food is always delicious and the savory drinks are the cherry on the top. My only gripe about this new location is that the service leaves a lot to be desired. I've dined at the new location a handful of times and each time there has been some issue we've had to deal with. The most glaring of them included waiting on food for more than 30-40 minutes and billing errors. They, of course, have been willing to take care of us when these things happen but they shouldn't be happening from the start.
Nice mexican food, with authentic ingredients. Very good food and service. Is casual and fun!
First time to Urban Taco....delicious food!! I will be back!!🙌🏻
The waiter we had was good. He had one issue with space and reaching over our plates. Other than that he was good.
The food was excellent. The service and staff were excellent as well. Would definitely go back again and recommend it to friends. Thanks for a great lunch.
The Yucca Fries and dipping sauces were interesting and yummy while the upscale “street” style tacos did not disappoint. Red snapper, carnitas (pork), and beef brisket tacos each came with a variety of perfectly complimentary toppings and sauces. The fun atmosphere and prompt service made for a nice experience overall.
Sercice and food were exceptionally good. A little warm on a 90 degree day for windows and doors to be open
Bright and happy spot with excellent food. Fresh, clean and delicious. I had the tacos in lettuce wraps, which were perfect. We did the salsa trio: all delicious. Healthy options for sure. The margaritas were also top shelf. The juices were fresh squeezed and high quality ingredients. Really, a bargain for the quality.
Awesome service Abraham was amazing!!
Everything was excellent. Excellent bartender and we loved the margaritas...
Very busy on a Fri night but we were seated quickly with a reservation. The combo tacos are always a good choice and LOVE the corn w/crema side. Margaritas are also great.
Great food--delicious! Ordered the tuna tower but was served a different appetizer. Waiter sort of disappeared and then firgot to make the switch back until we were leaving. No adjustment for the screw up.
Normally one of my favorites. Not that evening.
Very disappointed in the service. The table for my large group was not set to accommodate the reservation. I understand we had a large group but I had to request to have the drink order taken, the food order taken and had to inquire on the entrees too. To top it all off, the restaurant added an additional 10% to the gratuity over the one I left. The menu and receipt did not indicate automatic gratuities for large parties. Most of the food was good, albeit pricey, except for the pozole. It was clearly tortilla soup and had only three hominy in the entire bowl. I might return but definitely not with a large group.
