I give this place one star off because it's a little on the pricey side for what amounts to Mexican food. However, love their Coke carnitas and dill pickle/ground beef hardshell tacos. (Greasy, but oh-so good... I make my own tacos at home now with dill pickles because they got me hooked!) Nice patio on hot summer nights to chill on with a margarita or cerveza. Family-friendly, and they have surprisingly awesome brunch.


I'm hesitant to post this review lest other people catch on to this apparent secret - brunch at Malo. You can walk in at any time and score a table on the half full patio. It is fully shaded so comfortable on all but the hottest days. Be careful that oyu don't fill up on the fresh chips and homemade salsa because you want to save room for the carnitas and corn pancakes. Seriously, a corn pancake short stack with carnitas layered between topped with a gooey poached egg. That just happened.

Great Service

Great place for having special dishes. I just loved the place.

The trick with Mexican food in LA When you want the real deal, a hearty meal, with all the goodies and for a reasonable price, simply go to your favorite truck or hole in the wall.

However, when you are looking for a feast with drinks and friends and want to celebrate, dance and have more than just some food, go to Malo!

One star down for being overpriced nevertheless.



Tasty Mexican Food

While the patio is dark and it's hard to see what you are eating, the food tastes good. The chewy chips and salsa are great, as is the ceviche and the beef and pickle tacos.

Great place to hang and enjoy Mexican food, and while I have heard about their large Tequila collection, I have not indulged

You have to pay for chips and salsa :( Which defeats the purpose of the whole Mexican hospitality!!! The drinks are good but way over priced!!!

Great place! Love the decor, the music, the food, the bar. My only wish is for a few more items on the menu. I'd love to try their versions of some more Mexican dishes. But greta place to take a date.

Good Food, Good Atmosphere

I have only been here once and would say my experience was good, not great. I have trouble trusting any mexican restaurant that does not have complimentary chips and salsa but I must say I really enjoyed the habanero one. It set my mouth on fire and had really great flavor with the creme. The margaritas were also excellent but a bit pricey. I also enjoyed the side order of plantains but wish they had a combo order of beans and rice instead of pricing them separately. All of these individual items add up and end up being way too much food unless you are sharing between 3 or more people.

The food overall was good but definitely not the best plate of mexican food I have ever had. The wait staff was friendly and we were served in a reasonable amount of time. I think this would be a good place to enjoy with a group of friends as the atmosphere is pretty lively and fun.

Always had a great time here over the years. Very tasty food and great service from a great looking staff! Watch out for the chips, though, they are tasty byt not free and the staff pushes them on ya. Other than that, enjoy. 2nd floor is cool too as is the patio.
