The atmosphere was very fun. The server was very friendly, but was not attentive enough. The food was delicious. The value was good.

We just moved from California and were very worried about finding good Mexican. This place is a great find! We can stop looking and stick with Xolo.
It was safely gluten free for this celiac too! (Just needed to avoid the chips because they are fried in the same oil with gluten.)
Their spicy salsa is great. Loved the Tamarind margarita too.
Good service. Friendly people. Beautiful decor. Easy parking. Outdoor dining. This place has it all. I expect we will be regulars.

Delicious food and a great outdoor setup under an open tent. The many heaters kept us cozy even on a chilly fall night!

Food was great and so was the service. Orders a side of rice and bean and paid for them on the bill but order was never received. Other than the minor issue everything was excellent.

This place is having a real problem. Service was really, really bad. No one came to us to take our order. When our food came, it was lukewarm and not what we ordered.
Bill was incorrect. Waited a long time to order, get drinks and appetizers.
Going to try again in 6 months in the hopes that they can straighten out the issues with ordering etc but this was one of our worst dining experiences.

Our experience was less than positive. After making the reservation on OpenTable we were told we had to wait because no tables were actually ready. The wait wasn’t too long, but unexpected since we had a reservation. After waiting ~10min we were seated.

We ordered everything at once and subsisted on the chips and green sauce until everything came out all together. The food was pretty bland and didn’t have much flavor. Our waitress asked us if we wanted more “sauces” and we should’ve taken her up on it. Maybe that would’ve increased the flavor profile of our entrees.

We choose Xolo because of its vegan and vegetarian options. One of the vegan dishes was so unappealing it was almost inedible. While it was pretty busy which makes me think the locals must love this place I wouldn’t come back.

I took my seven year old daughter out for a mommy and me date. It was perfect! We were very full by the end of our meal. Our server was insanely busy but so kind and even complimented my daughter for being so sweet. A manager also approached our table at the end of the night to tell my daughter she was beautiful and that her mama loved her more than anything in the world (I had written on my reservation that I was excited for some one on one time with my mini). We sat outside and loved it!

I've been to Xolo before and enjoyed it - but on this most recent trip I was blown away. It seems as though they've kicked everything up a notch. It's no longer just a good local spot, it's an outstanding restaurant and worth a trip to visit if you're not in the area. From the homemade chips and salsa verde and the mango habanero margarita to start to the fish tacos and tres leches cake for our friend's birthday celebration - everything was fresh and delicious. The addition of a full and festive tent for enhanced outdoor seating was also appreciated. Well done Xolo! Keep up the great work!

We sat on the patio. patio is really just their parking lot that they put tables and a tent at. Service was horrible. Our original waiter took a long take to get to us, then never came back to check on us. We ordered the queso fundido which was very good but he only brought out 3 tortillas and there were 5 of us. Food was not hot. Enchiladas had very little sauce on top. Drinks were very good, but I would not go back.

As always, a wonderful time! Friendly, attentive service, delicious food, and great ambience. Lots of outdoor seating and tables are well spaced so you don’t feel crowded. Definitely try the mojitos- they’re the best I’ve ever had! We love coming to this place and look forward to coming back! (Get the Churros Y Chocolate for dessert - you won’t be sorry!)

I feel like something has changed - new ownership maybe? Food was different somehow - just not as good - and the waitress, while super nice and eager, was poorly trained. Too bad! I LOVED XOLO and hate to see this downward shift.

This is not a Mexican fast food restaurant like El Limon or Buena Vista. This is much more of a true restaurant, with pleasing decor, Mexican music, full bar with many varieties of tequila, etc. The service was very attentive. The menu was interesting and diverse. The food was hot, nicely seasoned and the plate was full. The prices were reasonable. The owner is clearly very hands-on and makes sure that things run smoothly. I look forward to going back.

Servers and food runners were great as far as professionalism and all of our food was delicious. Service was generally slow BUT we also understand that under current conditions, the restaurant industry is short staffed and it didn’t affect our enjoyment of our meal.

My coworkers and I met for what we thought was happy hour! On the website is says 4-6. When we got there at 5 the waiter told us that it was changed to 3-5! The waiter was nice! The food was great! It’s a perfect location for a quick weekend date! Seems a little under staffed! Our waiter was running all over the place! The dessert was also fantastic! I really enjoyed it and will return!

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.
