Summer dining outdoors

Sabor is not your typical Mexican restaurant. The food especially the tacos is good but the main attraction here is dining outdoors and enjoying the ambience of the lake and music. We came here for my birthday last Friday and they had a band playing at the Lakes. A beautiful summer evening with... read more

My wife, son and I had a late lunch here, and found it to be delicious! I ordered the crab and shrimp enchilada, my wife had the chicken tacos and my son had the carne asada tacos. The ingredients were of the highest quality and the presentation was excellent. The chips were served warm with an excellent salsa. A bit... More

We've been here before for dinner with friends, and all the dishes were very good. The atmosphere and decor inside the restaurant is very nice. But this time we came for lunch on a weekday. We sat outside in the patio area which is in a great outdoor setting in the middle of the Lakes shopping mall, you're surrounded by... More

The food and atmosphere were excellent, but the margaritas aren't worth the money. We paid $15 each and there wasn't hardly any tequila in them.

The food is top-notch, and the margaritas are huge. This is high-end Mexican food without the high price tag. I've tried the Chile Relleno de Pollo, and the Cochinita Pibil (pork), and quite a few other dishes over the years. It's consistently tasty, and well presented. The place is impeccably decorated, and the booths are cozy. Worth a visit.

Fun place to go for drinks and hang in the bar. The decor is beautiful and the food is good. However, they seem to heat the PLATE but that does not equate to a hot meal. I have had a few times where they said "be careful the plate is hot' which makes you think you need to wait to... More

LOVE coming here whether for dinner or just drinks! Great food and even better Margaritas! The antojitos are the best! Food is flavorful without being super spicy! Love sitting outside on their patio. Wonderful way to end a day!

Not your usual Mexican cuisine! Healthier, artfully presented, Sabor's menu is gives you a rounded choice of meat, fish, vegan dishes that are so delicious! You've got your tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and plates sans the greasy goo. Don't forget the margaritas! Wow, what a selection they have--makes it a hard choice. Very friendly staff. We have a toddler with us... More

Tasted 3 meals here as the family shared with me and I could actually review more than one dish. The much anticipated fish tacos were the biggest disappointment. Very bland using the cod. They might want to switch to the mahi mahi. The chile rellano with seafood was decent but not good enough to justify the price. The simple chicken... More
