Our first time here... and what a find. Drinks were creative and tasty. Food was really fresh and authentic. Service was friendly and accommodating. Casual, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Would definitely come back and hope to sit outside (when its not raining).

XOLO is our go to place to chill after "one of those days".
This most recent visit, I have to commend Sylvia (bartender)
Her service is outstanding and she can sure pour a great margarita!
Highly recommended - its our little Mexican vacation without the passport.

This is gem of a place! Authentic Mexican food, no fluff or extra things that don’t belong. The service was Fantastic. The food and drinks are Amazing! It’s not overpriced & the portions are big. Parking is limited in front of the restaurant but otherwise it’s perfect.

So glad that Xolo survived the pandemic. The food is as delicious as it was before and the watermelon margarita was delicious. Can't wait to come back to Xolo again.

It was very loud, service was so so. They took our entree before I could ask to box up leftovers and never asked out dessert before we were presented the bill

What’s good is the attentiveness and friendliness of the servers. And the prices seem reasonable for this type of place in a good neighborhood like this.
What’s not good is the food, other than the tacos.

Xolo Tacos is our go to place for our Friday nights out. Or whenever we want great Mexican food. The staff is friendly ready to tell us about any item on the menu. The service is quick, and the food is exceptional. As are their drinks. We feel welcome every time we go there.

The server was harried, yet pleasant. The food was great, but portions were small for the price. The servers didn’t ask if we wanted dessert and they presented us with a bill. It felt like they were rushing us out.

I went to Xolo with my elderly parent and asked for a table that would accommodate a person with limited mobility. They were very attentive and helpful in locating us at a table that was readily accessible. The service was very attentive. The indoor seating was very comfortable and the ambiance was pleasant. The food was very well prepared, tasty and abundant. Xolo is not a fast-food place; it is a real restaurant with an interesting menu. I look forward to going back soon.

Food and drinks were sooo good! Service was very slow as it took almost 15 mins before we got a server. It allowed us time to decide what we wanted but it would have been good to have a server greet us sooner than later. Besides that, all was good!

This was a horrible experience. I didn't even stay to eat. We were served water that was warm as if it were sitting out all day. The staff were all surrounded in the front and no one wanted to help. I have come here so many times and have never has such horrible service.

Service was really horrible and we had major issues with the food. I noted to the waitress I had celiac disease and needed corn tortillas. When the food runner brought out our food I asked her to confirm they were corn and she said no, they were flour and then walked away from the table before I could even ask for corn. I also asked for a salsa 2 times before it actually came to the table.

The rice was super overcooked, so badly that my husband needed to send back his burrito. The waitress admitted that the entire restaurant had bad rice that day.. but they weren't making any new rice. He then ordered tacos instead but when they came out they were not what he ordered.

The service was super slow, food was not good and staff was not super friendly or nice about the issues.

We sat outside under the tent in the parking lot. The restaurant seems to have done a nice job accommodating the Covid protocols.
The ceviche was fresh and excellent. The tacos and fajitas were also very good, as was the flan dessert.
I was disappointed that the churros and “chocolate“ did not involve real chocolate, but rather what seemed like a powdered Swiss Miss cocoa.

Sorry, wanted to love it, but was disappointed. Food was meh. Mole was less than something special. Guacamole was bland and boring, like grocery store bought. Service was good and decor/vibe had promise.

Overall, food was good, but I think they should add more items to the menu, as well as to include a kids menu (as we know, some kids can be picky eaters).
Also, I was a little disappointed on the torta I got (for take out), it wasn't what I'm used to of a Mexican torta (no queso fresco).
Their margaritas are good (I don't drink alcohol, so I got a virgen margarita).
I would go back, definitely.
