Although they serve brunch until 3:00 it seemed that they were shutting down the food line at 2:00. The trays were mostly empty.

Overall we had a great dinner. We were there early on a Saturday evening with our adult children. The food was fabulous and we really like the ambiance.
The $40 pitcher of on the rocks margaritas was weak. Like it had too much melted ice and very little tequila.
Initially the servers were very attentive but were rushing us a bit. They backed off but then we had trouble finding them especially to clear the empty plates between courses.
The food was wonderful. Especially loved the fish taco. One of us had the salmon which was very good too. Lots of creative menu options beyond enchiladas. However the enchiladas my son had were good too.
Bit pricey but worth it if you want an upscale Mexican dinner that is far better than the chain restaurants.

First time at XOC Tequila Grill. But it won’t be our last. Great food. Portions were huge.
The price was very affordable and we loved the atmosphere. We opted to sit outside and we weren’t disappointed. We even had our 14 month old son with us, so we can attest that this restaurant is family friendly.
The outdoor fire pits are a really cool feature as well. Can’t wait to go back.

It was ok. But the cost vs value is lacking. Drinks were ok. But not worth price. Same with the food.

It's a very good place for Mexican food. The room is attractive. I like eating outside there when the weather permits. Drinks are good. My only suggestion is to not give the feeling of being rushed to eat and go, I know restaurants like to get as many seatings as possible but this is a nicer restaurant, let people relax a bit.

Growing up in Mexico, with a mom who was the best cook in the world, I am extremely picky when it comes to Mexican food. The food here is authentic and exceptional.
The service is outstanding. I highly recommend this place.

From arrival they greeted us with a smile. We didn't have to wait till everyone was present to be seated which was very nice with a baby. The service was amazing and very attentive. Never had to wait for water refills, or chips. The food quality was amazing. I had the special Salmon and Spinach and it was fabulous. Highly recommend for any occasion.

On Thursdays they have unlimited Tacos until 3:00, so we got there and gorged ourselves on those delicious items, then stayed for happy hour which started at 3:00. We had alot of fun there.

$23 for sub-par (dry and bland) asada, lack-luster beans and rice, that I could have gotten better at 2/3 the price?
Was hoping for elevated mexican, but nothing was particularly interesting or innovative nor homemade and comforting.
The tamarind tasted like a plain margarita with too much slushed ice to make it easy to drink. The tamarind rim was the only thing that saved it. To top it off, while we ordered our food and drinks at the same time, we didn't get our drinks til AFTER we got our food, despite a number of inquiries.

Save your money and pass this place up. Hopefully, something better will take its place.

We went to this location on Thursday and enjoyed unlimited tacos; next time, we will go at a time closer to happy hour to enjoy those tacos and then reasonably priced drinks. I rated service down, although I think in fairness a server failed to show and the staff was overwhelmed.

It isn't inexpensive, but you get a lot of food for the money. And the food is REALLY tasty! The Chicken Mole was some of the best I've ever had. The service staff was very helpful and friendly and sensitive to some of my dietary constraints. Because it is pricey, it won't be something we go to for every day mexican fusion... but definately a special occassion place! Oh, and the Margaritas were AMAZING! Fresh, sprightly, zesty... generous!

I had never been to this restaurant before but passed by it numerous times and wanted to try it. It was not what I expected, it was pretty dead on a Saturday night. I made a reservation thinking that it was going to be very busy and there was literally all empty seats. The chairs were super uncomfortable too and the bus boy didn't speak english so switching chairs was a headache. The food was ok but nothing to write home about. I am sorry to say this but I definitely won't be back.

Not a good experience this time. Server didn't know what "ceviche" was, didn't get that it was an appetizer and brought it with the main meal. Service was really inattentive, pretty careless attitude. With so many other choices in that shopping center, won't do this again.

Food was pretty good and the area is great. But my waiter wasn't the greatest. He messed up the food and he messed up the bill, not once, not twice but 3 full times. Never gave my family and I any discounts with all his mess ups. Just keep apologizing but after 10 sorrys a few bucks off a meal would hurt.

Food is really good especially if you know which items to order and that tamarind margarita is super delish 😋 only thing is the service. Just make sure your not in a hurry when you go took her about 12 minutes to come get our drink order after we got our water.

Food and ambiance were very good but the service was very slow. our waiter was excellent and was almost running between tables etc. But they need to hire additional staff to assist. our waiter could not have been better but it seemed he and one other waitress were working the entire large restaurant, both indoor and outdoor.
It really was too bad.
