    Don't know what all the fuss us about. I thought the service was pretty good. We pulled in the parking lot and asked if we had to valet and the guy said no and showed us what spot to park in.

    Poblano-pepita pesto and roasted peanut habanero salsas are clutch. My fav taco is the red snapper. I've always experienced good service at UT.

    Not tex-mex (ew) but actual Mexican food in a nice place. Also, the green tomatillo salsa is awesome and the service is great!

    There's this lovely salad I like to order at Urban Taco called the Romi. Just try to resist the cojito, Urban Taco's seductive coconut mojito.

    RIP-OFF!! They charge you for the tortillas and the parking sucks! Why pay $30 for valet parking? Service is terrible and the food portions are small.

    No...just no! Terrible service, food sucked and the chips were so thick I was worried about chipping a tooth! I'll never come back. Go to Velvet Taco instead!
