Having heard about Yo Rita from my parents for years, finally made it down there with them for dinner. It was a Saturday night and the place is pretty small, but we were able to get a table with no wait around 6pm. Our server...More

This is a very good, but small taco place in PGH. NO reservations, but usually worth the wait with a margarita made to order. The true gems of the menu are the grits done with a Mexican flare and what is sometimes the special, soft...More

My husband and I were in Pittsburgh for a conference and we happened to wander in to Yo Rita. We were pleasantly surprised by the fried artichoke taco and mushroom taco they had on the menu, some of the best veggie tacos either one of...More

I thought the tacos were awesome -- and this place came highly recommended from a friend who is from Pittsburgh. The specials were good, the drinks were freshly made (I had the strawberry rhubarb margarita, yummmm), and these are definitely what I would consider to...More

What happens when you throw a lot of pretentious ingredients on a flour tortilla and charge $9 for it? You get Yo Butt Ripped Off. The $5 Mushroom Tostada, which my friend described as "gross," was an unidentifiable mass of ingredients that meshed into bland...More

Great combination of Asian/American/Caribbean dishes. Every day is a taco and ceviche du jour. Think duck breast with kim chi taco. They are small tacos so you don't feel overwhelmed. The place is small & comfortable with a friendly wait staff. My 17 year old...More

Mediocre at best... Some originality in taco creation but portions are small for the price... Expect to spend a lot for little... Food is decent though... Best part is the bottomless chips and salsa... Owner and host is an older lady with little personality and...More

I went in and was seated quickly. The server was good but not very personable. I had the chili with cornbread croutons...it was incredible. I also had the Cuban taco which was also very tasty. These tacos are not huge or giant like other reviews...More

I absolutely love this place. The menu is always changing, they do homemade soups everyday, and rarely repeat a recipe. These are gourmet tacos, so they might seem a bit expensive, but trust me, it's worth it. Also their Moscow mules are the best I've...More

Gourmet tacos come filled with anything but your typical toppings. The salmon and calamari were two of our favorites. It's a little pricey but no more than what you'd expect for a trendy place. Makes a great date!
