    You need to correct Urban Taco's hours in your system. They apparently close at 6 p.m. on Sunday. However, we were able to make reservations for 7:30. Obviously, that didn't work out so well.

    The only portion of this restaurant with any semblance of ambiance is the crowded patio. And that’s because at least you can get some air. The interior is claustrophobic and encourages you to eat and get out. Servers are fairly friendly but are no help, and are incredibly slow. Don’t come if you are trying to make a movie on time. The food is absolutely incredible but it’s served in small quantities and are extremely pricey. I’ve been here on three different occasions and could slap myself for trying to like it. I don’t. You have been warned.

    Three of us had a great lunch. The salsa trio was wonderful. Their chips are so much better than the usual tortilla chip basket. Had chicken empanadas and ordered another salsa trio with avocado crema for each of us. Delicious. Great service and a fun atmosphere. Thanks to Urban Taco for a wonderful lunch!

    Food and drinks are great. However, the service was horrible. It took 20 min just to get water abs another twenty to have someone take our drink order. My husband had to go to bar to get someone’s attention. Manager/bar person did try and make it right gave us free chips and guacamole to make up for inconvenience but, whoever our server was supposed to be never came by our table. Ruined our evening we were planning on having good food and drinks before going for a laugh at comedy club but we weren’t able to really enjoy like we wanted to.

    Urban Taco closed at 6:00pm and was not open for this reservation. The staff didn't seem to care that they were still taking reservations on Open Table, even though they were not open.

    This is a very popular hangout and can get tough finding a table without reservations. The service is great but you will have a long wait on busy evenings. Everything on the menus is fantastic. However, the food is very expensive and you definitely will pay more here than anywhere else. Again, no better tacos, though a bit small, but be prepared to shell out the bucks. The decor is mundane and nothing to look at. It’s all about the tacos.

    Our server was the bartender. He was very good but very overwhelmed. I think he was the only one there. Because of that we only ordered 1 round of drinks and an appetizer before we had to leave. We didn't have time to eat dinner.

    Love the food but really disappointed about differing responses to questions about food preparation. I was previously told the beans and rice did not contain any lard or meat products only to be told on a return visit that was not true--both the beans and rice contain meat products (lard and chicken stock). The fish and veggie tacos remain tasty, but I am really irritated that I was served something I wouldn't otherwise had eaten.

    I don't know what's going on with failing restaurants at Mockingbird Station, but this place should buck the trend. The food is delicious and the noise level is just about right. I was with a really picky eater and the waiter got the kitchen to re-make his entree (he can't eat onions, poor thing!) in about three minutes. I had the various taco plate along with wonderful black beans and those delicious cebollitas. Happy to go back anytime!

    Went on a Friday night. We had reservations, and had to beg the hostess to seat us at an open table instead of the bar. She kept saying the table was for a reservation they had. We had reservations. My guess is she couldn't hear us over the noise of the restaurant. My husband had trouble hearing each other at our table, so much so, we resorted to texting each other. Our server also couldn't hear us, as was evident when our order was not correct. Food itself had good flavor. Might try once more on a less crowded night.

    This place just isn’t what it used to be. The food was devoid of flavor. I waited so long to get my main, which was a salad I almost canceled it. There were 4 of us. We all agreed the place has gone down hill. We all used to love this place. The drinks were also weak, we all ordered extra shots for our margaritas. We won’t be back.

    I have always liked Urban Taco, but their location-switch at Mockingbird Station did not result in even a push with the look and feel of the place. The old site was smaller, yes; but it had a cool, funky, and warm vibe to it. This new place seems to be trying to bring back the ambiance and decor of the Souper Salad reboots....and that is not a compliment. Sterile and bland, it definitely dinged my appreciation for the place. I’d rather it be a total dive than a hospital cafeteria. Maybe they don’t care because they’re going for the in-a-rush theatre crowd. Too bad.
