The staff was so attentive and helpful when I was placing my order, and the space was really pleasing for an evening tapas vibe. The food was actually delicious, but part of me is disappointed that you only get one taco for $6.50. The taco is stuffed and tastes amazing, you can tell they really tried with the cooking and ingredients here. Only reason I took a star off is because it feels a bit overpriced.

Loved trying Uptown Taco for the first and definitely not the last time. My order was to takeout but the atmosphere seems friendly. I tried 4 different tacos, Korean Short Rib, Chicharron and Mediterranean Shrimp. Every ingredient and sauce was fresh and delicious. I'll be back soon!!

With both of us craving tacos and thinking of places on our wish list that we haven’t tried yet, we went to Uptown Tacos in Floral Park. And it was a great choice! From the yummy chips to the excellent drinks (Spicy Margarita and Mezcal Mule) to the fantastic tacos to the cool atmosphere, everything was simply great! We tried five different tacos from the versatile menu and each one was so good we forgot to take pics lol. Joe also loved the sweet plantains side and ended up saving some for tomorrow. We will absolutely be back, highly recommended!!

I'm happy my fiancé chose this spot. He says he comes here often. I plan on returning. The staff were super nice and helpful. The place was cool - not too intimate just a cool taco spot with many to choose from. The drinks were on point!


Delicious and unique tacos that suite a wide variety of cravings. Waitstaff are always friendly and attentive.Vegetarian options: Sweet plantains, chips & guac, and brussel sprout tacos are delicious and vegetarian friendly!

My friend & I was in search of tacos & margaritas on Cinco de Mayo. Uptown delivered just that. The tacos and margaritas were very affordable as well. My friend & I had like this stuffed plantain dish as an appetizer. We also had two tacos each. I had the Nashville Hot Chicken taco & the like a cheeseburger taco. The appetizer dish was DELICIOUS-the fillings were so flavorful. As for the tacos, I really enjoyed both. Once again the flavor was not lacking and I just loved the creative take on tacos. Now for drinks-I had a strawberry margarita. It was good but I thought it was too sweet for me. The customer service was good but one thing I didn't appreciate was having to like get up and give another party our table just because the host told them we were leaving soon. We were only there for like an hour the most. I will say they did give us a free drink for being kind about it but still not a fan of that.

I have never seen a place with such a HIGH RATING and REVIEW ratio it's almost a perfect 5 STARS! Anyways I came here for dinner with my cousin and his friends. They ordered quesadillas and tacos, that's what's it's all about right!? I had the Moscow Mule very good mix served in the beautiful bronze cup. My choice of 3 tacos were the Chicharrones, BBQ chicken and Mexican Cheesesteak. I liked them all, so much variety and different kinds of meats! The owner a tall guy was a gentle giant, so welcoming friendly conversation and explained the different heat levels in the sauces. I will come back here to try more on the menu! Great place, vibes and food!

Had a hankering for some Mexican food after the long drive into Long Island from Buffalo, and found Uptown Taco through Yelp, and I must say I really enjoyed the experience.The inside seating arra and bar were all taken, but there were tables open outside... considering how hungry I was, I had no issue eating outside. Thursdays are 6 dollar margaritas, and the other party that was outside apparently each enjoyed quite a few to say the least... their boisterous conversation added some unexpected entertainment to my meal.The complimentary chips were really fresh and served with a very tasty salsa and a Mexican ranch type thing, which was very good as well. I ate these too quick to remember to take a picture. For my meal I had the Al Pastor Burrito Bowl, and the portion was huge, and the flavors of the meat, pico, lettuce, cheese, rice, and beans was extremely pleasing to the palate. I don't drink much, but as It's vacation, wound up having a margarita, which was perfectly mixed... not too weak, not too strong, and the salt rim on a Mason jar was fun and helped relax me from the road weariness.

I give a one after, Mike, I think, it is whoever takes orders on a Sunday night, 8/21/[email protected]:45pm. left me on hold for 20 minutes listening to the bar noise. I then hung up as I figured he forgot about me. Now I cannot get through as he has not hung up the phone which means I would have been listening to him talking to customers at the bar for 30 minutes. Not a good way to do business.

Uptown taco is a gem. They have so many different tacos to choose from! My favorite is the Mexican cheese stake, it was very flavorful!! The drinks are also good, especially their spicy pineapple jalapeño marg. This place is great for lunch/dinner. The service was also 10/10. They also have outdoor seating in the back by the parking lot as well as indoor seating (bar & tables). Great vibes overall. Def recommend! 10/10 food10/10 drinks10/10 service 10/10 ambiance A must try!

All in all, delicious Mexican food with great portions and delicious flavors. We were seated outside, and the service wasn't great - it took a long time to have our order taken, water refills just weren't happening, and no one was really around for us to order another round of drinks when we wanted to. Five stars for the food, for sure, but the service prevents this rating from receiving a five star glowing endorsement.

Gf took me to this spot over the weekend and I was hesitant because I'm very particular about who makes my tacos. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was and how nice and cozy the locale was. It almost has that hipster vibe to it or a millennial recruitment center but I found it really pleasant and most importantly...clean. Service was pretty good as well and everything came out in a timely fashion. Didn't have to wait long at all for the food and everything was hot. I had the Mexican cheesesteak taco which was really tasty and the nashville taco which had some heat to it, but really good. Will definitely comeback to try other items on the menu.

Very popular spot! It helps to make reservations. Tight dining room area but they do have a tented outdoor patio. Plenty of friendly staff/managers around, checking in. The food comes out fast! The quesadillas are huge and a crowd pleaser. Its a tough decision when picking out tacos, it's a diverse menu. The Mediterranean shrimp taco was a top pick. Their Buffalo chicken/Cauliflower tacos are spicy! Big fan of their (strong!) margaritas, good balance of sweet/citrus.
