great gourmet mexican food, great fun place, mediocre snobby service, best chips, love ground beef tacos, great killer drinks, amazing harbenero salsa
Malo is a really fun place to meet with friends. They have a bar with delicious drinks and a very dimly lit patio area for restaurant service. Vegetarian options were very good.
A hidden gem in Silverlake. I had the carne asada plate and a side of the chips with haberno salsa. Everything was really good. Will be back to try some of the other menu items and also the bar crowd that shows up later in the night. Hopefully, the girls are as good as the food :)
Deep fried eggplant taco. I want it in my face. Right now. So good. Good drinks. Yuppie hipsters, but aren't we all?
Great Service. Great place for having special dishes. I just loved the place.
SUPER OVERPRICED FOR MEXICAN FOOD!. You have to pay for chips and salsa :( Which defeats the purpose of the whole Mexican hospitality!!! The drinks are good but way over priced!!!
DOLLAR TACO MONDAYS. Need I say More?
FANTASTICO. Great place! Love the decor, the music, the food, the bar. My only wish is for a few more items on the menu. I'd love to try their versions of some more Mexican dishes. But greta place to take a date.
Good Food, Good Atmosphere.
I have only been here once and would say my experience was good, not great. I have trouble trusting any mexican restaurant that does not have complimentary chips and salsa but I must say I really enjoyed the habanero one. It set my mouth on fire and had really great flavor with the creme. The margaritas were also excellent but a bit pricey. I also enjoyed the side order of plantains but wish they had a combo order of beans and rice instead of pricing them separately. All of these individual items add up and end up being way too much food unless you are sharing between 3 or more people.
The food overall was good but definitely not the best plate of mexican food I have ever had. The wait staff was friendly and we were served in a reasonable amount of time. I think this would be a good place to enjoy with a group of friends as the atmosphere is pretty lively and fun.
a moder silverlake institution. Always had a great time here over the years. Very tasty food and great service from a great looking staff! Watch out for the chips, though, they are tasty byt not free and the staff pushes them on ya. Other than that, enjoy. 2nd floor is cool too as is the patio.
A bit over rated.
A friend of ours choose this place for our monthly "get out of the house" dinner date.
1. I read the reviews and prepared the 6 of us that the service was sub-par...reviews were correct
2. One of the very few places were chips have to be purchased.
3. Drinks were delivered fast and tasty.
4. 3 inch diameter tacos...not so good.
5. Automatically charged 18% gratuity for a group of six. Correct me if I am wrong, but gratuity is for great service right....not mediocre service.
Good Brunch Deal. Malo has a really really good breakfast on the weekends. And they have a full bar, if you're in the mood for a Bloody Mary. They have Mexian specials and your standard bacon and eggs for around $7. Not good if you're looking for a busy spot, but really tasty and good service.
