Mexican is not my favorite food, but I suggested this place to please my husband. Even the complimentary salsa and chips were good ~ the chips were perfectly not greasy!. The ceviche was fabulous, and the carnitas a total surprise.The pork was braised and so soft and tender. I would (and already have ) recommend this place . Excited to... More

My wife and I ate here last night. The interior is decorated quite nicely; lots of Mexican decor, a beautiful curved ceiling and the seating was comfortable. Our waiter was very good with a nice sense of humor. The dinner was served in short order and we liked the presentation. We shared the beef tacos with a side corn dish... More

We like to go to Sabor in the early evenings and sit outside sipping margaritas with friends. The food is unique, colorful and delicious. We will definitely be back soon. Aside from the ridiculous parking situation there, it's great.

I don't know who those people are that say the food is good...it wasn't. We ordered the guacamole, ceviche, pork belly tacos, mole, chicken burrito, steak tacos, and nutella churros. All of the dishes needed extra flavor and more kick. When we asked for a spicy salsa (because the complimentary one was like watered down ketchup) the waiter informed us... More

I've eaten at this restaurant often and has consistently been excellent. Try the Jicama organic tacos or the Filet tacos.

Visiting Thousand Oaks and saw this place. My husband and I decided to try it and it was very good. Great tasty food, I had the Crepas Mexicanas and he had the Red Chile Enchiladas. We enjoyed the food, drinks and the ambience. Great friendly staff too.

Sabor has a fantastic outdoor patio and the weekday happy hour (ending at 6pm) is really great. This is one of my go-to restaurants and the kids love going too because they can play on the playground while the adults converse. Absolute favorite meals include the jicama chicken tacos and the stuffed poblano peppers (especially the Fall version with butternut... More

The food here is not the typical rice and beans with lots of cheese, which I very much appreciate. Service is very good and the restaurant is in a great location. I've been here a few times with friends and family and always enjoyed it.

The entire restaurant we full but we were able to grab a high table in the bar. Other reviews about the large Margi's are right BUT I think its cause they glasses are big and filled with... More

The atmosphere in this restaurant is teriffic and I wish that I could say something good about the food! Poorly conceived and even more poorly prepared. I ordered a Chili Relellno stuffed with shredded chicken. The chicken was so dry that it had no resemblance to chicken and the prices are excessive at best. These nice folks need to take... More
