We chose this restaurant based on the great reviews it received on TripAdvisor. Our night did not go as well as we had hoped. I chalk it up to growing pains. They have grown more popular than their capacity in space and service. Despite having...More

Ate here with my boyfriend, their guacamole and chips were incredible. That was so filling alone. They have an awesome Mexican pizza too. Bartender was nice but he'd remove things and didn't ask first. Always ask before removing anyone's dish(es). Something for everyone on the...More

If you are a vegetarian yet love Mexican food this is the place to come. For your carnivore friends they do serve the best chicken enchilada I have ever had.

Alto Cinco is a great place for good food and drinks. It is still small even though they expanded, so sometimes you must stand and wait. Their selections of foods and wines are good and their beers are fair. While the foods and wines are...More

Catfish tacos are excellent. Several of my vegan friends also swear by this place. Order a margarita; They used fresh squeezed juices and you won't be disappointed.

Predominantly Tex/Mex with great service and varied menu. Great bar as well. Lobster Tacos TDF. Large seating and very popular

This is one of my favorite places ever! The catfish burrito 🌯 is just perfect. The salsa is super fresh. And the guacamole is out of this world. All in all I really love this place and go whenever I'm in Syracuse.

Very long wait, poor and slow service. Would never return. Food barely mediocre, if you have ever had real Mexican food, you will not find anything near it here.

Alto Cinco is a must go to place in Syracuse. It's not far from SU, downtown or suburbs of Syracuse. Great food of Mexican cuisine. Very quaint bar with trendy atmosphere for dinning. I also recommend Alto Cinco for takeout.
