This little place, with limited seating is adjacent to the Jefferson Theater. In fact, you can enter the theater lobby directly from the restaurant-- Really convenient. The margaritas are very good and they can travel with you into the show. We have never been disappointed...More

Food was ok...not great, not bad. The gentleman doing the preparation was witty. Liked to see an old theater venue/lobby repatriated into something different. Don't know if i would return, but I wouldn't tell people not to try it.

Ok for cheap eats on the Downtown Mall and has outside seating. Unless you want cheap food fast, there are better Mexican choices

The woman at Cinema Taco was very nice and quick. This is not a sit-down restaurant so much as a grab-n-go sort or place. The beef was not ground finely, more chunky and tasted like steak. Very good for a speedy bite before my flight...More

Maybe it was because we were half starved when we got there. Maybe it was because hello, TACOs, how can you go wrong? Maybe it's because it was for real just delicious, but wow! my sweet potato and onion with rice and black bean burrito...More

Average food with set up like a cafeteria or a sandwich shop. In other words, you go down a line and they add ingredients. Nice kids working the place, but the nachos and the salads were ordinary overall. Given the number of restaurants in the...More
