We came there suggested by our host in Phx. Definitely one of the best Mexican ever tried. It’s not the usual Mexican restaurant: same ingredients but more refinement. Suggest to try ceviche and all different kind of meats they have for tacos. 5 star.

We had a group of five at a Friday night Diamondbacks game. Hungry after the game we decided to try the new Gallo. A unique environment and a very comfortable space. Great food and the kitchen was rocking at 9:30PM. Recommend.

Our first visit to this restaurant, mainly for the tacos but the outstanding item was the pie-banana cream with a caramel sauce, nuts and rich topping. We had a variety of the tacos which were all good but pretty small. The restaurant itself is rather...More

We're big fans of Otro Cafe, so we were looking forward to visiting. Overall, we enjoyed the stripped back menu and the laid back atmosphere.
