“unauthentic, bland and overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

As an American very disappointed w/ the expensive but disgracefully bad Tex-Mex restaurants in Munich, I was encouraged to try out Escobar because of its good reviews. Yet another let-down. I ordered their signature item, steak fajitas. It had the typical wrong ingredients that Germans add and which don't belong (e.g. corn, zucchini), left out a bunch of critical ingredients (e.g. sauteed red peppers strips, shredded cheddar/jack cheese), and generally screwed things up (e.g. burrito-sized tortillas instead of fajita-sized tortillas, overcooked tough steak). And of course everything was bland as Bavarians like it.

“Great food and cocktails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

This restaurant is amazing value! The food is delicous, hearty mexican cuisine, which is great if you're in need of a good feed. The atmosphere is good, laid back but still reasonably lively, particularly considering we were there on a Sunday evening. The cocktails are brilliant and really good value - on Sundays and Mondays all cocktails are only 4.95.
Everyday there is a different offer making this a really good value restaurant in Haidhausen.
