This place is apparently owned by Hook, Line and Sinker and brings a fresh take on tacos. The name would make you think it's a taqueria but it is a sit down restaurant. The tacos are small but so full of flavors. Pick three and two sides. It doesn't come with complementary chips but they do have five different salsas... More

Take everything you know about tacos and throw it out the window when you walk into this place. The menu, although somewhat limited, will take your pallet on an adventure. I suggest getting the combo, which allows you to pick three tacos of your choice to enjoy. The menu is chalked full of intriguing pairings that are worth a try.... More

A great spot for some truly authentic Mexican food. I had two tacos: al pastor & chicken al carbon. Both had great flavors and didn't leave me feeling too full. The salsas are out of this world - I highly recommend the three salsa sampler. A great casual lunch and easy on the pocket as well! My only complaint is... More

My wife and I stopped in for our second visit before taking in a movie at the Angelika. I am a big fan of Mexican food, especially authentic Mexican cuisine. I had the three taco plate. The carnitas, pollo en mole and taco al pastor were awesome! But the real star of dinner was the salsas you can choose from... More

Recently saw the movie "Chef' and went to Urban Taco afterwards - great choice! Mango margarita - one of the best ever! Tacos are small for the price but delicious - should have had the Cuban sandwich instead - a lot more food for the money!

Stopped by for breakfast and it was very good. Similar to the one in San Antonio in regards to quality and service. Overall, a good experience.

This restaurant I feel tries too hard and is just not good. The place does look amazing, but the food is too expensive and not worth it. The desserts are absolute carp. The dulce de leche tasted like it was store-bought and the churros are the worst I've ever had. This is really bad Mexican food. You're better off going... More

The best part has to be the chips. They are so unique from any other tortilla chip I have eaten before. I love the seasoning on them. Then you can order the salsa trio, and pick from their like 9 varieties of salsa. They are all delicious so you can't go wrong there. I got a taco too, which was... More
