“Fantastic Wine & Tapas Bar”
Reviewed October 20, 2008

We ran across this little gem of a wine & tapas bar while window shopping in Olde Englewood Village. Thought we'd stop in for just one glass of wine and a tapas dish, but it was so good that we ended up staying for the afternoon and sampling most of the other dishes as well!

Everything is made onsite with fresh organic ingredients and, boy oh boy, what a difference that makes... who knew! Even some of the wine they offer is organic.

It's a nice intimate, casual setting on the main strip, with parking, and offers both inside and outside seating. I think they sum it up best on their website, so here's some information I've cut and pasted (hope I'm permitted to do so)

" Vino Loco is both a wine bar and a bottle shop featuring a comfortable, casual atmosphere. We offer authentic Spanish tapas and in our Bottle Shop carry wine featuring varietals that are growing in popularity among winemakers and wine lovers alike! We have over 300+ hand selected fine wines for your tasting and buying pleasure!"

Yes, that's right, a bottle shop as well! Of course we loaded up (no pun intended)

For Dog Lovers: outside seating is DOG FRIENDLY!! They even brought out a little water dish for our "kids".

One last note; everyone was really friendly, including the owner who helped us pick out some bottles to take home with us. Not the typical snotty wine expert, but very helpful and knowledgeable.

If in the area, check it out!!
