LOVE Alto Cinco! It is a little place, but either you will have to wait, or go early! Prices are good. They have a small bar too. The food is absolutely delicious. Remember: They have a take out OR they deliver. So if you can't get in - just take out. Or plan ahead a little and have them deliver.... More

This is not my favorite place to go to to eat-in because the place is teeny tiny. However, the food is good and take out is recommended.

when you can eat at a local place like this? Very nice Mexican food in a unique location. Seriously, why go to a mall restaurant that is the same as in Florida or California when you can go to a place like this?

While one of the few restaurants that deliver to hotels, its food is excellent and delivered timely--even in a winter blizzard!

Alto Cinco has some of the largest Burritos I've seen. A nice variety of entrees. They have so many dishes to choose from and all taste good. Love it.

Food is fantastic. Love the specials. Wine selection is great. The decor is very appealing. The place is just so darn small.

I love Alto Cinco. I always alternate between two dishes but I know everything on menu must be good. My go to is the chicken enchilada with mole or the bbq tofu burrito(ask for mango salsa) My husband loves the jerk chicken tostada. It's a small restaurant so we always go at early dinner late lunch time to guarantee a... More

You need to dine here. Positively delicious and remarkably consistent. Brace yourself. Perpetually crowded. Squeeze in. You won't want to leave. Great professional service, warm and no attitude.

Small, intimate (though soon to be expanding in size), unique eatery. Very friendly staff who appear to enjoy their job. Great selection of food options for both the carnivore and vegan/vegetarian followers. Have eaten here numerous times and the food has been consistently top notch. Love their Frisco burrito and black bean soup. My wife loves their chicken tostadas. Warning... More
