My wife and I stayed just outside of town and based on reviews, we had dinner at the Loop. I had an unbelievable veggie burrito and my wife had an excellent salmon dinner. Our waitress was really good and very pleasant. The next evening we decided to try the restaurant again and ordered completely different meals. Again, the meal was... More

Good food and service. Drinks could be a little better. Nice place to enjoy a meal with friends or family.

First time I have ever seen Lobster Enchiladas. They were very good. All 12 of us enjoyed the food. They also have a nice kids menu.

We were down in town and decided to eat a late lunch. Found this place off the main drag. Good food and been told the BEST margaritas. The shrimp fajitas and nachos with chicken and sheaded beef were both really good. I didn't find the price too far out of range for the location. The staff were all friendly and... More

The meal was ok. The salsa and white queso were too hot for us to eat. Probably would not eat there again. A little pricey also.

Ok, first the margaritas: many custom options and they are huge (and not weak). If you have a large, you will only have one. Good , reliable Mexican food with some options that are interesting. My daughter had the lobster enchiladas - very good. They also have a Pacific salmon entree (not the farmed Atlantic variety that is common in... More

Every time we go to The Loop we are reminded of the truly excellent (birdbath sized) margaritas & friendly service. Standard American Mexican fare made easy on folks unused to heat (but they will amp it up if you ask). Good enchiladas & fajitas, but we go there for their award winning margaritas.

You'd never know from the name that this is a Mexican restaurant. The atmosphere was vibrant and we were greeted warmly. I appreciate restaurants that pay attention to detail and this one did. My glass was never empty. I ordered a combo with a chicken tostada and a chicken enchilada. I substituted black beans for the normal re-fried beans and... More

Just an OK restaurant. Even for a Tuesday night the restaurant was pretty busy. Having said that we thought it would be great, but disappointed it was not because we were all hungry. Our server was sweet and very quick. Never had to ask for anything.
