Great all the time, even better for happy hour

Bacaro is one of my favorite restaurants around the USC area. It's a great place to come with some friends. I like the atmosphere, their prices are amazing (especially during happy hour), and the food is delicious. They serve tapas-style dishes which are $7 each if you get 3, or $5 each during... read more

Had to wait soo long on a Tuesday night approx 1.5hours to get seated. The servers messed up the orders as well so we got some free food. Extremely expensive for very small portions of food. The in house sangria is great! They should expand to cater to the vast population of USC.

I eat/drink here with friends all the time. Almost on the food on the menu is great, especially the grilled chicken breast. They've also recently opened up for brunch. Yummy food and great prices on drinks. The $20 all-you-drink deal is awesome.

Tasty dishes but not brilliant and unless you hit a special price it is not reasonable Wine offerings are unusual but the bartender is very stingy Atmosphere dorm room special

All the wine selections are written on the walls. Cute, but cramped space. Street parking (it can be a bit frustrating to find space near here). BUT!!! The food... oh, so so tasty. Their burger (must have it with the fried egg) is perfection. Their spiced cauliflower, another excellent dish. Everything I've had there is delish!!! Please note that the... More

Good prices, unique tapas. desserts, wines, and beer close to the USC campus. Crowd of mixed ages, but mostly young twenties. Friendly, helpful staff. Parking was scarce.

This place is amazing, though the wait is often ridiculous and making a reservation only helps cut the time a little it is well worth the wait if you have the time. The food comes in small tapas plate form with each dish a crowd-pleaser. Try the Bacaro Burger and Cauliflower! The place just expanded but it can still get... More

We organized an after-graduation party at Bacaro for our USC daughter, her roommates, and their families - nearly 60 people in all. They gave us the use of the entire restaurant from 5 - 7pm, and it was the perfect place for a casual celebration. We pre-ordered 4 items from their menu - had a very hard time deciding because...
