Very clean and welcoming place. They provide big meals and for affordable rates. We loved the meals very much and the waiters were very personal and informative. I recommend this place.
The best burrito ever but they're closed and our fear is that they won't reopen after the lock-down
Came here in the evening (~ 9PM). Seating was readily available and service was fast and attentive. Atmosphere has a dim and modern feel. What was ordered: Platanos ($5): it was a solid appetizer. Nothing amazing. Sweet and soft. I think I'm more of a plantain chips person. Potato Crispy Tacos ($10.6): 5 mini tacos filled with potatoes topped with cabbage, salsa and sour cream. I'm sad to say I didn't like this dish - it was lacking flavor. I had crispy tacos before and it was definitely not the same experience. I think the salsa wasn't flavorful enough and the overall dish might have needed more salt. I didn't really care for the side of bean. Overall, it was a bit disappointing and bland.
Super dope place to grab cocktails and appetizers!!!! Its trendy on the inside, cute. i went on a Saturday afternoon and it wasnt crowded at all. It has a small bar area. With a couple of TV your folks were sitting and watching one soccer game and one basketball game.
I came in for happy hour on Superbowl Sunday. The menu says that margaritas and watermelon margaritas are half off. Regular prices $10 and $12. But they wanted to charge us full price!
Another Fantastic meal at La Calle 10, the food is always seasoned to perfection, always temperature correct. Their blend of spices are always on point. The bar has never let us down. This evening we were surprised to have one of our waiters, Jose, from another restaurant we frequented . He was and is one of the Best around. What a Great additional assest to your already great Staff. We noticed Oscar showing Jose the ins and outs, but I know Jose will definitely bring his A Game every night. Thanks again , the food, Mini Nachos, Plantains, Smoked Chicken Drummettes, Vegetarian Enchiladas Verde, Fish Tacos, and Roasted Brussels sprouts with honey drizzle and Pepito's and of course the Margaritas.... Everything was Fabulous !!!
This place has THE mose delicious food. We had a serious problem, we ran out of room in our stomachs.
I'm going to tell you that this place is 100% going to go out of business. The location and rent are not cheap and the space is huge so in my opinion if you don't have a universal theme / easy vibe you're going to not do good. I went in the other day and they basically took the entire bar away. Very poor design & business decision. Is this place a BBQ place? Mexican? BBQ Mexican? Anyway, it's too expensive for Mexican food and they ruined any chance of somebody wanting to come for happy hour at the bar because they pretty much removed the whole thing. Now there's this huge empty space where the register was. Not quite sure if they have table service now you use to have to walk up and pay for each thing you needed and got a number. Man this place needs to be sold to someone who's got a good concept, make this place a sports bar! Too easy! But seriously please find somebody to make this a sports bar. I beg the whole internet to come together and make this a sports bar. As a designer I'll re-tool the whole place for free no joke. The neighborhood deserves it. Love all of you who read this but we need to let someone else pay the 25k a month rent and monetize it to profitability while giving the community something they deserve Love you
I went here for lunch and was very underwhelmed, mostly by the service, but also by the food. All workers are young men who don't seem to have much energy towards customer service. Customers are barely greeted, and it took them a long time to assist even though the place was empty and there were 4 guys on staff. Not even a "hello" -- just left my party standing by the door for ages. The food was underwhelming. Nothing was great. I've included a photo of the desert I ordered, which came in a plastic to-go cup, even though we were sitting inside and eating. The presentation of the desert was pretty gross, as you can see. Why even bother having a restaurant if you are going to serve dine-in customers glop in a plastic cup? The whole experience was weird. Won't be going back.
Miss T-Rex but this place is helping.
Ended up going for Saturday brunch. Good food, brisket tacos were tender and tasty, and the drinks are well made. Quick and friendly service. Nice restaurant with a relaxing place to sit upstairs
Went here with my husband. Greeted with a sign ( no people inside maybe 3), had to pay $9 for a basket of chips and some kind of salsa (was ok), no bottled beer just tap--who drinks tap Corona? Food was delivered cold. Spent almost $80-husband had to leave tip. No restaurant should be greeted with a sign! Oh the waiter was so slow and the kitchen especially. We're restaurant people so service should be greeted with a warm Hello, seated with menus and utensils not ask...anyways, not a place to visit for us. The food wasn't good just greasy and cold.
I really wanted to like this place. I visited several months ago when it was empty, I think during the morning or afternoon. I ordered two tacos. The meat was tough and the flavor was just okay. Location, ambience, and service were good.
LATIN AMERICAN OR BBQ? Sometimes when you go to a restaurant you expect one thing then something surprises you that you don't expect. Well that's what happen when I ate at this restaurant. About a month and a half ago I ate here for dinner. I expected this place to be another Latin American-influenced eatery. There's nothing wrong about that. I ordered the chips and guacamole on the side. Brussels sprouts was a starter dish I ordered. For the main course I ordered 3 tacos. I initially thought about ordering 3 brisket tacos as I never expected to see brisket in a taco. However I decided to diversify by having 3 different types of meat tacos: brisket, pulled pork, and cod. The best meat taco was the brisket as it was moist and smoky. I regret not ordering all brisket tacos instead of selecting different meat tacos. One other dish that was surprising were the brussels spouts. Growing up I hated brussels sprouts due to its taste. I think people now know how to cook brussels sprouts. The brussels sprouts were leafy and crispy. They didn't have that aftertaste associated with brussels sprouts. Another dish I liked was the jalapeno cornbread. It wasn't spicy but had that sweet taste. After dinner one thing I noticed was the stacks of wood at the restaurant. When you see wood you think of BBQ. Since the brisket really stood out I wanted to come back here again to try the BBQ items. Several weeks later on a Saturday brunch I went here again to eat. The brunch menu included eggs with brisket. However I was determined to order mainly BBQ items. I ordered 3 BBQ meats: baby back ribs, burnt ends, and brisket. When I ordered the baby back ribs I thought I would get a portion slab however each rib was individually cut. The ribs looked enticing with the grill marks but the ribs were dry. I think since they were individually cut they might have been individually cooked. The burnt ends were flavorful yet I expected more fat. The main attraction was the brisket. The brisket at La Calle 10 were some of the best I've had at any BBQ joint. After eating I was stuffed. Initially due to the brisket I was going to give this eatery four stars however I began to think if I had not ordered the brisket what would be the best item I had during my two meals at La Calle 10. The best item I had were the brussels sprouts. The one item I was disappointed were the baby back ribs as they were dry. Overall La Calle 10 is a nice eatery to have lunch or dinner. Even though the dishes were tasty nothing really stood out besides the brisket.
This is a GREAT happy hour! Starts at three for those of us with alternative schedules. Brisket tacos! Potato tacos! Taco Tuesday! Wings! I take it back, I want the place to myself. ;). Enjoy.
