Always a good experience! Love the pineapple margaritas.
Good food. Service was not the best. Very busy. Fish tacos and guacamole are recommended.
Food was not good at all, hair also found in tacos and server was HORRIBLE!!!!!
I love this place
Service is better every time!! Food is solid; pulpo today was better than expected.
Yet another great time at Tacuba. Araceli and her service is worth a million dollars, always ask for her.
She took us through an array of Margaritas; Frozen Tamarind Raspados, Pina Parra La Nina (the best), Grand Cadillac and Pepinada.
We started with Dos Empanadas (amazing) and Guacamole. Then on to Chicken Enchiladas and Carne Asada cooked perfectly. At this point there was no room for dessert.
But we can’t wait for our next visit at the end of March.

Cute spot. The drinks were good and food was delicious
Unbelievable food, especially if you ask them to make it super spicy, they can do it Caliente !
Drinks were exceptional, any margarita will please your palate.
It is good for large groups, birthdays and friendly to children.
But their best is service, service, service.
Ask for Araceli, she was the best. Always there to check on us, and explaining each dish and recommending the most delicious food in Queens.
We can’t wait for our next visit.

Great service, good food and drinks and atmosphere.
Good food as always. Drinks are good too. What I like about this place is very consistent. Food and drink have been the same any visit I have been. Which is kind of hard to keep consistency in big restaurant.
Ok...where do I start? Let me start with the good things: service, ambiance, and decoration are great. Big space. Beautiful bar. Great tequila selection. Food...I have to say it is mediocre and below my expectations. This place is owned by a very famous Mexican chef and I was expecting great Mexican food. Instead, I found a very regular “pollo con mole” , completely unsavory and bland. The worst was the “Mariscada en Molcajetes”. It was so bad you could taste the frozen seafood. And, it was swimming in a watery unimpressive sauce. The “tres leches” for dessert was acceptable. Another thing, where in any Mexican restaurant you have to ask for tortillas? I am sorry but I am not coming back.
Food is fantastic with refreshing twists on standard Mexican dishes. Drinks are tasty and well-balanced. Service is great, waitstaff and front of house staff were attentive and on top of things. They seemed to be one step ahead of our needs and not in a way that felt invasive or like they were trying to rush anyone out of there.
It's a lively, noisy restaurant but worth it for all the other superlatives. 8/10 food, 10/10 service.
Checks all the boxes. A great neighborhood spot.
Service was amazing! A must if you have never been.
This is my go to place for "Bottomless Brunch". Tacuba never fails!!
The food is good but the drinks are to "die" for.....and you do "die".
Always good quality. Try the mezcalita de elote
Fast, friendly, very good!
Tacuba never disappoints! Tried a steak special with 2 enormous shrimp, perfectly cooked and delicious. Great margaritas, guacamole and service as usual.
Wonderful as always
I will never go there. I had order a pina para mi nina, its basically a pina coloada in a pineapple, and it came super spicy and gave me and my heart burn. I asked to change it and they did but still charged me. I asked for a different drink, margarita. And it was horrible. Never again coming here and the service is horrible.
Food and service was outstanding!!
Awesome food and great management. Very attentive, highly recommended
This restaurant had great food and service. To top it off, it was extremely affordable! I will definitely be returning.
Good food and drinks, happy hour was only at the bar.
Love tacuba, best frozen margaritas, guacamole and Camarones para pelar. Service always super friendly and efficient. The room is loud, so not good for a quiet chat or for those with auditory issues.
As always Tacuba Cantina Mexicana was excellent!
We came in for brunch and had a great time. The drinks were perfect, La Pepinada was strong and refreshing. We had the steak Fajitas and Chilaquiles and everything was delicious. Everyone was very attentive from the moment we came in to the moment we left. Definitely going back!
Always a great time, best frozen margaritas. Loud but festive room. Great service. Recommend the guacamole, camarones para pelar, empanadas and elote.
Always great food and strong, tasty drinks. Never a complaint from here! Service is always good too even when it is jam packed... Brenda was our waitress 06/28/19 she was super nice and attentive.
The staff are super friendly and very welcoming.
Sunday Brunch is amazing. 1 1/2 hour of unlimited mimosa/margarita, sangria and something else of your choice. I love mimosa! The food is amazing!
The food is amazing with a lot of flavor. Our sangrias were not as good as PioPio so I will give 2 stars from 5 stars. My husband ask for Chilean Wine but he did not got that one is was a cheap wine, he can tell the difference. We got the chile relleno with quinoa and it was fantastic, I got Mejillones and it was spectacular, I also order aguachile en molcajete and it was good too very refreshing. We will comeback!!!Before I forgot I also order tres leches de Limon(Lemon) and it was really good too not too sweet.
This is my go to place for a great BRUNCH with great friends!!
I love this place very much... always and forever!
Mother’s Day dinner
The food tasted fantastic and the service was excellent. The food came a little fast and the table became a little crowded, but everything was great.
Server disputed what I ordered (claiming I requested something I didn’t), drink charges on menu were less than actual charges
Great date spot! Also seemed like an after work favorite in the neighborhood. I love their food and have ordered delivery many times, but hadn’t actually been there. I enjoyed the vibe and the service was great. They didn’t rush us but we’re quick to bring extra drinks. Nether food has always been stellar out of takeout containers. It’s even better on an actual plate!
Great Food, Service & Ambiance. Had the Mushroom Quesadilla to start & the Shrimp Tacos. Fun Place. Highly Recommend.
Food and service are great!!!
Good food and great service but extremely loud.
Our disappointment started when they went to sit us. The main seating area has a fun festive feel but they tried to sit us in a side room that had a totally different personality and was empty except for two other parties of two. It looked like they just knocked a wall down between the two places and put tables in there. Also, at this time the main seating area was half full so we asked to be sat in the main area which they did. Once we sat down our server came right over and we ordered several drinks. We then ordered some Guacamole and a Steak Quesadilla which came out about 5 mins after being ordered. The guacamole was good and the flavors of the Quesadilla were also good but it was luke warm and the steak was chewy and fatty. We should have sent it back but were to hungry so we pulled off the steak and ate the rest. For dinner we had Tacos. These also came out within 5 minutes and were good but but I basically just ate at a sit down Chipotle. Finally there was also a sense of being rushed. Our server and busser walked by several times staring at our plates and continually asking if we were done.
