El Caballito Tequila Bar Ratings and Reviews
Food was great, would definitely recommend coming on a Tuesday for Tacos. Mariachi band was a little annoying and music was too loud and could not conversation at times as they would come table side, but good place for food and drinks, would still go back.
El Caballito seems un poco loco, or maybe I should say schizophrenic. Does it want to be a dive bar? Does it want to be a high end tequila bar? Does it want to be a casual, but high end restaurant?
I don't know. I did have a good meal and drinks at El Caballito, and may have even given it 4 stars if the menus were not disturbingly greasy/dirty along with greasy silverware....
And if you are going to brag about your extensive list of Tequila's and Mezcal then maybe you should actually have the ones on your menu in stock. Or if not in stock then the wait staff should know that in advance.
All in all El Caballito was just a little short on being a well run establishment.
Me and a couple of friends went for brunch. Ordered the egg bennys and the braised beef, with the churros pancake to share.
Entrees were great. We had the hot chocolates.
General impression is that it's a great place to grab a casual and fun drink with friends, go for some tapas, however the dishes are packed with lots of calories. So one experience for me was enough.
Had the most amazing time at El Cabilito this past weekend. Very friendly staff who were all very attentive to the needs of our big group. We had a problem with our table as it had a pole in the middle dividing our party of 8 in half and the manger was very great dealing with the issue. Food is great and the atmosphere is so fun. The guac is a must get and the tacos were great too. Thanks for a great evening and we can't wait to come back!
We went on a Tuesday not realizing it was Taco Tuesday's. Any taco on the menu for $3.50. They're small, but are they ever tasty. We started with guac and chips, had 10 tacos between the two of us, a beer and a margarita and the bill was approx $70. Not bad, but the margarita was nothing special and full of ice - next time I'll skip it and spend the same amount of money on a few more tacos!
We went on a Tuesday, which is Taco Tuesday. All the tacos on menu were only $3.50!!! It was the first time for 3 of my guests. They really enjoyed themselves. There was also a mariachi band playing at around 6/7pm. I love this place. I always recommend it.
I was not expecting the food to be this fantastic - it was great. The tacos and margharitas were excellent. The service was terrific too. I'd go back in a heartbeat for the food but not if "talking" were important :) It was really loud but still a great vibe for after work drinks and food.
Recommended by a friend. Went for a get together with my girlfriends. Shared a pitcher or margarita and ordered a bunch of tacos and dessert. Loved the food. Super delicious and a good variety of tacos. Reasonably priced. The vibe was wonderful. Music wasn't too loud and the type we like. Definitely will be back and recommend to family and friends!! Thanks
Bday celebration - no attention to special occasion, even though confirmed on day prior to visit. Noise was terrible, TV Sportschannel was running all visit long at very high volume over sound system, including commercials. Long wait time/tough to get waiter attention. The volume of TV channel did not allow regular conversation across the table, waitress stated she could barely understand her guests. Disappoing experience. Food was good.
My wife and I went there last week for dinner. We were going to a performance at a nearby venue so we chose El Caballito because it was recommended to us by a friend.
The service was very nice and the ambience is great; however, the highlight of the evening was the rajas poblanas tacos. Don;t get me wrong, everything was delicious but the rajas poblanas tacos were out of this world.
Great place overall for casual dinning. Also, get the Pink Margarita!
Came here for date night with my boyfriend on Saturday- around 10pm. We sat on the patio. The bartenders/servers were super friendly and helpful. Margaritas were awesome. Great ambiance on the patio and they were playing great throwback 2000s/90s music (think Usher) that everyone was singing to!
Would 1000% come back- I didn't know this patio existed. Think Hacienda but king west..awesome.
I found this place online by fluke. The website made the place look very intriguing. I went with my girlfriends for a long overdue girls night. The atmosphere was lively the dj was fantastic! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was very delicious. I am a fan of tequila, I appreciate that they Cazadores to mix their drinks!
El Caballito seems to have strongly declined compared the memories I have of it from 2 and 3 years ago. The service was poor (it was extremely hard to find or flag down a waitress, meaning we would have to wait extra long to get additional drinks and that really killed the vibe).
The music was also not Latin AT ALL and the DJ played Justin Bieber songs 4 times (this is NOT what I go to a Tequila bar for)
Tacos was great. It was a bit chilly outside and didn’t know that it was self serve although I made reservations ahead of time with a pretty big group (it ended up being quite convenient because it was a big group after all)
This place needs to fix their phone situation. I had multiple call backs from the voicemail I left weeks ago and when I called for modification their voice mail was full and kept calling during work hours but no one answered. Someone should be always available to answer calls.
Inside is way to dark. Was hoping for a fun colourful atmosphere. Patio was nice but not much sunlight and is like a wind tunnel.
Highly suggest coming here for birthday for free tacos and yummy dessert!
The back patio does not take reservations, but we managed to find a spot nonetheless. Great atmosphere and very energetic. You feel like you're a part of something exciting. My only complaint is that the margaritas were somewhat overpriced. I am not sure what sorts of ingredients were being used, so excuse my ignorance, but $11 for half a wine glass of margarita topped with ice is pretty steep. Besides that we had a great time.
If the drinks were cheaper, I'd be a regular here. But then again it is King West so what do you expect.
Fabulous restaurant to eat chips and freshly made guacamole, and drink yummy margaritas with friends and/or family. Friendly bartenders and servers, as well as a great place to meet new people. Perfect place to go for a drink after work, and dance if you're feeling frisky for a Thursday or Friday evening!
Food was a bit disappointing and the plating was especially sloppy. They called it 'family style' but I call it lazy. All the tacos come out on a big platter and you have to remember which flavours you ordered and grab yours from the main platter. Not fun when you're already very hungry and it's hard to distinguish the different flavours because it looks like one big mess.
We attended for a bachelor party, Not everyone wanted to stay inside, so we went outside. The patio was great, but we had two groups divided and a minumium inside which wasn't considered with the outside party. I would recommend for groups of 10 or less to attend.
We had the absolute best service at El Caballito and that really made the experience. My friend really enjoyed her margarita and the food was a little too spicy for me, but I am not the biggest fan of spice. The atmosphere was great and it was the perfect spot for the two of us to catch up. Again, our server really made the experience. He was so kind, made us laugh and checked in frequently (but not too frequently) to make sure that we were comfortable and enjoying our food and drinks.
