    Vatos is not an authentic mexican food restaurant... It is a korean american mexican style. I dont understand the popularity of nutella nachos or kimchi tacos wtf

    Tacos are small and flavorful. Service is fast, kind, and attentive. Highly recommend going on Wednesdays for the all-day 5,000₩ margaritas.

    Kimchi pork fries and craft beers from US and Korea. Magpie IPA. Good size restaurant and ambience is oddly western - feels like a place in a US metro area. Highly recommend it. 60,000₩ for a family5

    small portions and expensive. It's nice they have chips and salsa but the tomato salsa tastes bad and the burritos aren't anything special. They need to stop using iceberg lettuce in Burritos.

    기대 엄청하고 갔지만 요리사 친구가 미리다녀와서 해준 이 있기에 마음에 준비는 했다. 그런대 역시나 ㅜ_ㅜ.. 친구가 머라했냐면 '향신료, 조미료 듬뿍..' ㅡ_ㅡ.. 내가 느끼기에 이건 김치 참치 볶음에 감자 튀김 얹어서 먹는 느낌이였다. 그나마 타코와 퀘사디아는 나았다.
