Interesting menu with vegan options. You have to order corn on the cob with parmesan really excellent!! But note - Very noisy place not for intimate conversations. Definitely younger crowd. You can order tapas style and share ! Quite full so you might have to...More

A great spot for happy hour or late night food and drinks. Seating is communal and there is typically always a lengthy wait so come prepared. Get the house margarita!

Simple, great tasting food at affordable prices. I enjoyed a shrimp taco and a vegetarian smart dog. It was awesome. Full of flavor and fresh. Great waitress, quick, kind and efficient with our order. I will surely go again.

Service, spectacular! Drinks Devine! And the tacos at Imperial are all great! They are also accommodating if you ask for things like "Hold the onions" This was our second trip to Imperial and would easily recommend it for anyone that likes tacos or hot dogs.....More

Every time this restaurant name is brought up, everyone goes nuts for it. SO. MUCH. HYPE. I'm not saying it's bad, but from all the reviews and what people have told me, I was expecting better. First, we waited 55 minutes for our table. Fine....More

I don't know but I've been there a few times, even during some of the downtown fairs and such, and never have trouble. It's always just me and my hubs tho - not sure about their policy for larger parties.
