“Cute place-bad food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

We liked the potato taco and the cocktails. The guacamole was terrible, how do you ruin guacamole?

“Trendy and Tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

This place is rather what I imagined LA to be all about.The restaurant had a trendy feel to it. The food and drink were delicious with a great range in both. The service was superior in every way. The cost was reasonable.

“Malo...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

They should really change the name of this restaurant. Came here expecting greatness and it was a big let down. Way overpriced for what it actually is. Food is kinda crummy...service was great though. Drinks were decent. I had some tequila pom blend. What is there so much hate on hipsters? Don't be mad because you're boring and go to Chili's all day every day. Anyways the food at Malo is MALO. If you want some good Mexican food in Silverlake you don't have to spend $80.00 for two people. Check out LAS GLORIAS on Silver Lake Blvd. and you will not be mad. Great food and price. $20.00 for two. I'd only come to this place on Taco Tuesday.

“Great find...innovative menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

My husband and I were driving along Sunset, starving and wanted some Mexican food. We passed Malo, so I looked at the past reviews and we decided to stop in. Loved the cool decor and the fun menu. There were so many taco choices - love that. I got the ground beef and pickle taco. It sounds strange, but it was so good - sort of like a hamburger in a fried taco shell. We didn't have any drinks, but their cocktail menu looked pretty amazing. If we had more time, we would have returned to happy hour. ...
