I decided to try out the place for brunch. The menu is fairly simple but they couldn't seem to get it right. I ordered breakfast tacos which was supposed to come with pico de gallo, guacamole, rice and beans and a side (I ordered home fries). When my order arrived, it was literally scrambled eggs and cheese in a flour tortilla and a side of box rice and beans from a can which weren't even warm. I was told there were no home fries and I would get a side salad. The salad never came, and neither did the pico de gallo. I had I ask for the guacamole. I've made better food at home. Save your time and money and go somewhere else.

I've tried the tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and all the other standard Tex-Mex fare here, but the mac 'n' cheese is by far the best thing on the menu. Everything else is so-s0 (although I do have a weakness for the margs and chips/salsa). If you get the mac, make sure to add jalapenos.

There are several good tex/mex places on 5th avenue but this isn't one of them. The fish tacos were just over-cooked catfish in a flour tortilla with a lump of refried beans. No nice lettuce, no avocado, no salsa, no delicious mayo sauce - nothing. Just fish. In a taco. Served by an utterly indifferent bartender. Go elsewhere.

We had a great night here recently. I was truly surprised, as I'd been to Lobo a couple of times two years ago and resolved never to go back due to lackluster, limp food and indifferent service. Maybe there's a new chef, a new waitstaff, a new owner? Don't know but we loved it. Friendliest, most helpful service ever (all the waiters were attentive to every table, not just to their own) the kitchen paid perfect attention to our various requests (one no dairy, one extra cheese, we're those kind of customers) everything came quickly, served hot, super generous portions, but not gloppy, really crisp and fresh. It's still more Tex than Mex - don't go for an authentic Mexican meal, but for satisfying amerimexican food in a welcoming setting, this was perfect. Will definitely go back, glad I gave it a second chance. Cheers, Lobo.

The first time I came to Lobo I was so excited to have a new mexican in the neighborhood... raised in LA, I am an addict. Well, I could have cried. A person could get better Mexican going to Key Food and buying the ingredients off the Ortega shelf and cooking taco meat from an envelope, shells from a box and refried beans from a can... The second time I went I was desperate for a snack and everything tasted much better after three of their not bad margaritas... The Mexicans out of the dining room and into the kitchen! I can't believe the ratings people are giving this place. Lobo is to Mexican what the shopping mall is to chinese.... pre-fab.

Kept meaning to post this -- went a few months ago with my boyfriend and had margaritas and 'ceviche tacos.' I obviously shouldn't have ordered those but hey, fool me once. The server didn't know what ceviche is -- what it was, Lobo-style, was overcooked (but not in lime juice or another acid) fish with cooking water in a limp, dissolving tortilla. The margaritas were weak. Absolutely terrible. You will do better at Calexico, Rachel's, Los Pollitos, etc. -- anywhere else. I think it's a place to drink by the bucket, and feel like you're partying or some such, not a place to actually eat food.
