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!

Nice menu of the typical tex-mex items, along with some higher end entrees. Decent drink menu. Fair value. Great service.

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!

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.
