Our family of seven stopped here for lunch while shopping in downtown Scottsdale. Two of us got the award winning crispy tacos, which were excellent, and two got the Taco Salads. I don't recall what their other orders were, but they cleaned their plates. The Taco Salad could literally feed two to three people. They were huge!! A very friendly... More

My wife & I met friends here for Happy Hour and Taco Tuesday. The food was good and reasonably price. The waitress was helpful and efficient. We sat inside but the outside seating area looked great. The venue is a little loud. Our friends are regulars at Taco Tuesday at Loco Patron. We'll be back too.

Visited this place on NFL playoff Sunday. There was a big crowd of Steelers and Green Bay fans both inside and out. The atmosphere was awesome for sports fans. The margaritas, chips/salsa/queso was pretty average. This is definitely a cool hangout spot, cool wait staff, and the front patio is great.

Poor. Waitress got the order wrong. The cook refused to correct frying a shell verses the soft shell we did not order. Food was just ok.

From beef & chicken to mahi mahi & lobster, they are terrific. The presentation, in upright stainless taco holders, is beautiful making them easy to consume! The margaritas are good - even observed the Patron margarita being served in a reconstructed Patron bottle at the next table. The smashed potatoes were crisp on the outside, and delicately fluffy on the... More

This place is great. A good selection of all kinds of tacos. Prices are very reasonable, six of us ate lunch with drinks for less than $10.00 each. Very friendly service, not fast, but they were very busy with people in town for the bowl game.

We had a late dinner here New Years Day. I had the taco salad, delish. My son had the hangover burrito,he said it was the best he ever had. My husband had the smashed potato and loved it. Everyone was super nice here. We were glad they were open .
