I was recently visiting Dallas for a conference. A few friends and I decided to try Urban Taco! We were pleasantly surprised by the menu, aesthetics of the place, cleanliness, and service. We asked to sit outside and were accommodated. Christopher was our serve. He was very friendly, attentive, and fun! We ordered dinner and margaritas, which were fantastic! It was windy, and we asked our server to bring one of the propane heaters over. He brought one over, but it was out of propane. He went back and got another propane tank out, switched them, and was able to get the heater going! Dinner came out, and everything looked great! I had the 7 layer salad with steak and greatly recommend it! I also ordered the tres leches cake...and it was so good and authentic! Dinner was so good, we decided to go back the next day for lunch. We told Christopher we would be back, and we all (5 people) wanted the 7 layer salad with steak, to have it ready around 12:15 pm. We called to verify lunch plans, and everything was a go! When we showed up, Christopher had a table ready to go for us with waters! Just a few minutes later, our salads came out, and were fantastic! I ordered another piece of the tres leches cake! Christopher was amazing and the food was amazing!!
I ordered through ubereats and everything was sooooo good! It’s authentic Mexican food, not Tex-Mex.
3 tacos: arrachera, pollo con mole and Al pastor a la Tuma.
Roasted corn con lime crema
Poblano green rice
Loved that the portions are not big so you can have a taste of everything and don’t end up with a food coma.
Great price! I absolutely LOVED this place. Wasn’t expecting it to be so good.
Came here randomly to burn some time before my movie started. From the start was intrigued by the menu.
AMAZING SALSA! Grab a Salsa Trio for $4. Over ten different flavor profiles to choose from. I opted for a green salsa platter and was surprised at just how different the kitchen was able to spin the same ingredients into three totally separate sauces. For my entree I had the Portobello and the Red Snapper Tacos. The Portobello Taco had a subtle heat to it. The texture of the mushrooms was comparable to an animal protein but the taste was earthy. A little slice of mango tamed the heat and added a sweet finish.
THE RED SNAPPER.. Flakey. Blackened. Flavorful. The slaw was crunchy. The dressing was garlicky. It was amazing.
I paired the food with a mango Agua Fresca and a dressed Topo-Chico.
The limes were juicy.
The corn tortillas were the perfect consistency.
Server was well informed and offered the lunch special to save me a few bucks.
I'll be back!
I forgot about this place! Their drinks are so good!!! Their chips are yummy and so is their guacamole. I wish they had some vegan options besides the obvious... The service there was awesome as well!!!
