I met a friend at Hugo's on a Thursday evening for dinner. I arrived about 15 minutes before my friend, and was seated without wait, even though there was already a crowd. The space was well-appointed, and a bit noisy, but overall ambient. When my...More

Had delicious Fried Chicken tacos and split the Guacamole and Salsa appetizer - a perfect lunch! Excellent service and would come back again to continue to try the menu.

Hugo's is supposed to represent creative gourmet Mexican cuisine plus a tequila bar with great margaritas. We found Hugo's a disappointment with at average food, very poor service, and a couple of below average margaritas. We actually compared their house margarita with their $29 "special"...More
