Dirty plates, old food crud Servers eating on the job, putting their fingers in their mouth to pick food. Did I say dirty!!! Last time dining there, NEVER again.

Took a friend to Lalo's for dinner and it was everything I remembered. Though they were very busy (it was a Saturday night) and we waited about 20 minutes for our table, it was definitely worth the wait. The service was excellent (Christian was our server) and our food was delivered rather quickly considering how busy they were. All dinners... More

Great food, and atmosphere. The weekends have a mariachi band and makes the dinner experience very authentic.

Will definitely return. Staff was over the top with service. Food was good. Nothing to brag about but was tasty. Margarita was very good. Had frozen raspberry. Had trio entree option of soft beef taco, enchilada beef and Sope with beef. Wife had chicken burrito and she really liked it's taste.

OMG if you have not been here put this one on your list it is the best Great Service and the fish taco's (which I don't even eat, I ate them and LOVED them) They will work with you on whatever you want to eat and the size of the meal, and GREAT drinks as well.

Went to the Schaumburg location for a work farewell party. We were able to easily make a reservation for a group of approximately 20 people. The staff was attentive to our needs, they even placed our cake in their fridge for keeping until after dinner. The waitstaff was great in managing all the orders for food and drinks. A few... More

Stopped for lunch with the wife. They would not let us use a discount card on the buffet which does not make any sense. Had items from the menu and thought it to be average at best. Chips were stale although the service was very good.

Friends &I have been coming here for years. Never left without enjoying a Medium frozen mango margarita. Always get the ceviche with fresh sliced avacado followed by a Saturday karaoke session and again...more margaritas!!...Bartender always made sure we were enjoying our cocktails and that they were never empty:))

While the interior and patio dining areas are quite nice, our party was not pleased with the food nor the wait staff

This was an interesting experience. You walk in and it looks like a Mexican restaurant, sounds like one, with a mariachi band but the food had no flavor. I frequent Mexican restaurants and this one was average at best. It seemed like everything we asked for was an extra charge. The wait staff is friendly I'll give it that.
