    Mother's Day Brunch and you might expect there would be kids at your restaurant, but instead Loco made the decision to not carry any chocolate milk and to remove the French toast from the menu that day? Interesting decision... Last time we went to brunch was a couple of years ago and really loved it. This time around it seemed the food was less impressive and the atmosphere didn't seem to care about whether we enjoyed ourselves. Nice waitress, uninterested hostess, 2 different types of music(from each room) battling it out in my head, sad looking fruit bowl, not crispy home fries, good omelette, sad kids, and disappointed wife. Happy Mother's Day!

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about Loco and I finally had the opportunity to try it for myself. It was excellent! The food was delicious and service was great! Our server, Emily, was very personable and attentive. I was very pleased!

    Probably won’t be back except to have a margarita. Went on a taco Tuesday and super glad we did because I would have been even more disappointed paying full price for these tacos. Got a mix of tacos and none of them were great, just ok. Our favorite was the short rib. The Al pastor was too spicy to finish, the crispy carnitas just tasted like char. We got the queso and it lacked in flavor and congealed pretty quickly. The service was quite terrible, we were waiting a long time for our waitress to take our order and then a long time for food. The place was pretty much empty. I know I love their coconut marg but didn’t drink this time so maybe the tequila usually hides the food experience?

    Drinks were good, the atmosphere was fun. Our server was slow to get drinks but then was pretty attentive. Chips and salsa were good. I ordered the ceviche and a taco for my meal. The Baja taco was delicious. The ceviche was horrible. It was like a seafood salad put into a fried plantain cup. The kale salad served with it was quite good though. My son ordered the short rib empanadas and he took two bites and had me try it because they tasted funny. They did in fact taste funny. The beef was turning bad and we sent them back. Our server did not handle us sounding it back very well. He was quite snarky. What a shame. I had read decent reviews about this place too.

    Becca C was our waitress & it was an awesome experience. Food was 10/10 - chips, guacamole & salsa were fantastic, taco salad & a quesadilla was the perfect combo!

    My wife and I had taken a weekend trip to Boston and stumbled upon this place. The word that comes to mind is outstanding. They had live music, oysters and Mexican/ Latin inspired food. Good drinks, and was reasonably priced. I highly recommend this place for a lunch/brunch time stop. Next time we’re back in town we’ll definitely stop in again, the nachos and the ceviche were on point.
