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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Food & drink were great as always.
One thing that bugs me though is when the place has lots of tables open and the servers try to seat us right next to someone when there are plenty of other options. I'll ask for another spot and I've heard others do the same, but sometimes they seem a bit put out.
We really enjoy this place. Please come to Tarrant County!

Don't bother making a reservation at this place. They won't honor it. Why is Urban Taco even on Open Table? We made a reservation last week because we were on a tight schedule and had tickets to see a movie at the nearby Angelika theater. We were stunned when we arrived at Urban Taco -- only to be told that our reservation didn't mean anything, and that we'd have to wait in line (about 15 - 20 minutes) behind all the other people waiting. With only 1 hour before the movie was scheduled to start, we left and found another place nearby (Smash Burger) where we could grab a bite to eat. Urban Taco really screwed up our plans for the evening. Beware when making a reservation here -- it doesn't mean anything. Open Table should have some way to police its restaurants to see if they will honor reservations made through its web site. Shame on Urban Taco.

If you like different gourmet style tacos, quality drinks and and a different twist on classic appetizer at cheap price Urban Taco is the place. You get a high new age experience at very reasonable prices and quality food. The place is a bit small but the service is good as well as food. Definitely recommend this place for my "Ballers On a Budget"
