Great tacos

The only thing I dislike about this place is the parking situation- basically anytime during peak hours you have to get your car parked for you. Other than that I am sold. They have a bar area where you can hang out while waiting for your table (which you almost always will be). The standard... read more

I came in to have a cool one and watch a little basketball, so I never made it into the restaurant. The bar service was excellent and hard working. I had a special request for my Margarita which prepared to my liking. The cheeseburger quesadilla was a treat. Will come back again to check out more of the food variety.

I had a brisket taco, a scallops taco and one with carnitas. I highly recommend the carnitas. The scallops were my second favorite. The brisket is typically a favorite, but mine was a little tough. The sangrias were $4 at happy hour and they were good. I recommend getting there at 6, which we did and had no wait. 30... More

It's a very popular place with locals so have to get there just right time to avoid long wait but even the wait can be fun to explore the rooms and try one of their many unique tequila cocktails. Been here few times for work and finally in on a Saturday night before the rush. Tacos are great and can't... More

We arrived right around 430 so we missed the crowd, and were seated right away. We tried a lot if the tacos a LA carte, and they were ok. Not fabulous or amazing or holy cow....that's mind blowing. But I think the biggest disappointment was the guacamole... In today's day and age if fresh guac, I was very disappointed to... More

Reasonably priced. Best tacos ever!! Really great fillings like blackened salmon, brisket, vegetable, etc. The bangin' shrimp tacos and guacamole are our favorite along with the street corn. Go for happy hour 4-7 and the margaritas are delicious and reduced in price- not the ones with the gross sweeteners here! Friendly staff and quick service. Valet parking if the lot... More

Taco Lu is phenomenal! The only gripe I ever have is waiting to get in due to its popularity! Great menu and staff... Drinks can be pricey, but not too bad... Get there early or get reservations!

Like I said above, the atmosphere is awesome. It's a young clean crowd that's looking to grab a few Mexican drinks and food with friends. Sangria are amazing and cheap. Food is also fab and cheap. I'm a local and this is one of my "go to" places.
