Not a restaurant in an old house, not a taqueria in a former gas station, not even a place on Third Street, Altiro Al Chulo, with a full bar, serves up tapas, spicy and otherwise. The combination of ingredients in some dishes sounded odd but tasted good, very good. Tired of Third Street's antique shops, Randall Road's big-box stores, and... More

Ordered the Shrimp Tacos...I was a little taken back that each Taco contained only 1 Shrimp. My wifes Steak Tacos contained an adequate amount of Steak. Service was prompt and courteous.

We've been coming here for some time, and the food and drinks are always amazing. We love the watermelon salad, the mussels with chorizo, the mouthwatering side corn side dish, and the tacos ( my favorite is the shrimp). All the tacos come with different gourmet sauces, and nothing is too spicy as someone said. The margaritas are amazing, and... More

We decided to stop here kind of last minute. Altiro is a cute little venue with inside seating as well as a nice outdoor terrace. We chose to sit inside as it was buggy and humid that night. We thought the menu was a slight bit confusing as to what things were but the food was excellent and the waitstaff... More

My daughter picked this place for her 21st birthday because the wait to get into Buen Trucha was too long. Should have waited at Buen Trucha. We were a party of 5, like I said, it was my daughter's 21st birthday dinner. They never offered her a free birthday drink or dessert. First "legal drink". LOL. Seated quickly, and the... More

My wife and I visited here for our anniversary and we live in the neighborhood so we took advantage of the nice weather and walked the few blocks to get dinner. The interior of the restaurant looked nice but we decided to eat on the patio which was also very nice. The atmosphere was elegant but relaxed. The food was... More

Most items are made with peppers. So if you don't like peppers you may not like the food here. But for the rest of us spicy lovers, this place is not only hot for its small plates, the drinks will knock your socks off! I really enjoy the cocktails here and all the work that's put into making them. Thank... More

We had a 7:00pm reservation. Our table wasn't ready & they made us wait outside on one of the hottest & humid summer nights, got seated @ 7:45. Server never went over any drink or entree specials. I know the menu well but the rest of my party was there for the first time.....food was very good except the carnitas... More
