We went for a late lunch. There were only one or two other tables. The owner/server was very personable and attentive. The drinks were ice cold and delicious! My pineapple strawberry water was so yummy! The salsa and queso weren’t what we were expecting, but...the tacos were delicious! They aren’t anything like American or Mexican tacos, but delicious all the same. Glad we stopped in at this spot!!More

Food was not great, as we expected given the favourable reviews. Place was deserted and not inviting. Wish we went somewhere else.

We went there because I had read a lot of great reviews and it seemed like a cool place. We went around 6 PM. One other table of people in whole place- that should have been first clue. We sat at the bar right in...front of young bartender. Had to get her attention even though she was mixing drinks in front of us. We ordered strawberry Margaritas as that was the special. Well they weren't frozen and they used strawberry syrup- no strawberries, and orange juice and tequila. We ordered nachos and tacos. Waited about an hour and finally decided we weren't getting food. We watched her write the order down and watched her wait on and serve another table that had come since we had been there. not once did she ask if we wanted more to drink or mention our food. When we said we wanted to pay, she didn't even mention our order. Didn't put it on the bill, but all kind of strange that we were sitting at the bar right in front of her, so it wan't like she could forget about us. Can't say how the food was cause it never came. No one else really came into restaurant while we were there which is really unusual for a Saturday night at 7 PM in Samara.More

The food is absolutely delicious! Margaritas were good too. The ping pong table, foosball and pool table were a hit with my kids. This is almost 5 stars but the service is average and they do things like bring drinks out after you are done...with your food. If they brought everyone water before you order then I could give it 5 stars. But I had to ask for water twice and we literally ate our entire meal before 1 beverage came out. Otherwise ...5 stars!More

We arrived Friday, November 22 a few hours earlier than we normally would for our annual Thanksgiving trip to Samara. We have a normal routine, check in to our Villa, unpack and head down to the Pali. Purchase a few things mainly what we need...for Breakfast go back to the Villa drop off our perishables and head down the Flying Taco. When we arrived at the Flying Taco there were two women who appeared to be working there sitting down on their Mobile devices. Don't think it matter where we sat my large party of 2 were the only people in the place so we seated our selfs. Finally one of the two Women came over with Menus to ask what we would like to have. We ordered two regular Margaritas, Chips and Salsa to start. Our Waitress appeared to have an attitude as if we were disturbing her Mobile Device time. Margaritas, Chips and Salsa came. We also ordered Casado and Aroz Con Pollo. The food was fantastic and by the our third Margarita our Waitress who was also the Bartender appeared to have Mastered how to make a regular Margarita. A great place to go to get good food and drinks and not have to blow your budget.More

I have had Mexican food all over the world, including Mexico. The Flying Taco is the worst of any food that I have had, let alone Mexican.

Great tacos, salsa and drinks. Very quiet the night we were there but looks like a fun spot with table tennis, pool table and craft beer. Plan to go back while we are in town.

My family and I enjoyed some food and reasonably priced Mexican food. Location is walking distance to the beach. Decent cocktails and nice service.
