This place is terrible. The food is average and meager. The waitstaff are blasé and pretentious. I really don't know what else to say. The worst Mexican in the area.

We have tried it a few times. Unfortunately we were not happy with the food. Tacos are really small and no special taste/sauce. We love the decor but won’t be returning.

A friend and I visited last month after this spot landed on a Montclair 'best of' list. The design of the restaurant is ok - kind of industrial with the kitchen in full view of the diners which was fine. It wasn't too loud or...More

Went to Villalobos for daughters birthday dinner - tacos were delicious, loved the selection. Guacamole was maybe the best I'd ever had (good thing at $15). Definitely not classic traditional mexican but high quality food with attentive service.

The taco shells are home made and delicious. There were some good creative tacos like a cheeseburger taco and one with potato chips crushed on the top. The guacamole is just OK though.
