    It's basically Taco Bell at three times the price, but they serve frozen margaritas and chances are it'll be there when you need it

    If it's late enough and you're hungry enough it may make sense to eat here. If you can get a 50% discount

    I got carnitas and chipotle chicken soft tacos... They were horrible. The meat was bland and their toppings tasted like they came from a horrible college dining hall. Do not get their tacos.

    I met a man who used to go by San Loco on the outskirts of Puerto Vallarta all the time. Because that was his name.

    One of the best late night eats in the East Village is the macho nachos with chipotle chicken from San Loco. #nyceats

    No reason to subject yourself to their mediocrity when you have better (and cheaper!) options right around the corner (Tacos Morelos) and across the street (Otto's Tacos).

    The cashier was a little too sassy for how expensive the food is here. Not bad, guaco taco was yummy, not sure if worth the $$$$ I've had better.

    Probably only good when you're drunk - otherwise it's just your normal taco. Nothing special in my opinion, and not as cheap as you'd expect.

    San Loco happy hour is every day, Monday – Friday, all day. Tacos are cheap, tasty and the food is served late, which is perfect after your happy hour isn’t so happy and you’re craving food like woah.
