Thanks for making our birthday night out with friends so fun! Excellent service, food and drinks. Hope brought out the birthday cake at the perfect time. Then she cut and served us slices - she went above and beyond with such delight to help us.

Loco is awesome! It was super packed even on a Monday night—the vibe is great for a neighborhood bar. I don’t think I’ve ever had anything like the coconut margarita, which was fantastic. We ordered oysters, queso, guac, and street corn for apps which were...More
