We sat down around 7:45 on a Saturday night; not too busy yet, but it started to get busy while we were eating. The food was great, but the service was a little slow. It took a few times asking for our waiter to bring us what we asked for. We ordered pitchers of margaritas which took a lot longer to get to our table than they should have. Great food and great patio space though; the fish tacos were great!
Primo's is still a great spot in Uptown.
Less than good food, horrible staff, NOT A FAMILY FRIENDLY PLACE!!!! – This is the one next to Bass Pro. This was our first trip to this location and we will not be back. The food was not good at all, the service was horrible, and the music was so loud the only thing you could hear over it, was the middle age drunks at the bar who should have been cut off many drinks ago. Apparently they charge a gratuity for parties of 6 or more even though the menu states in black and white 8 or more. By the way this includes children under one year of age. At least it did in our case. Four adults and two children both under the age of 5. A 20% gratuity was placed on our check. Typical for what is becoming normal service in the Dallas, Fort Worth area.
GREAT TIMES!!! – HOLY COW THIS PLACE WAS GREAT!!!! I think that about says it all...I heard about this place and decided to take a gander to see what the hype was all about. I went there on a Tuesday night, and man, was this place rocking! The night started off on a pretty good note, when I got there I found out that it was valet parking only, which made me kind of hesitant. But come to find out, valet was only $5 so that was a very pleasant surprise. I then proceeded to the entrance?but didn?t get very far because there was a nice long line to get in. While standing in line, I had a chat with a very nice fellow by the name of ?TINMAN?, he told me about the Tuesday $2 margarita specials and the ?to die for fajitas?. After about 5 minutes of standing in line and watching all of the ?eye candy? that occupied the place, I knew all of the hype was true. Needless to say, I enjoyed every bit of my fajita dinner and after a couple of margaritas, my girlfriend and I had a VERY ENTERTAINING night.
Again!! – Ok, we loved it so much, we had to go back! And let me say, yes it does get crowded, but to me it's worth the wait. I love the fajitas, and definitely the margaritas! Thanks again, Tinman for getting us a great seat!
The Place to be Seen on Tuesday Nights! – Primo's is the place to be Tuesday nights. If you want to just people watch while enjoying their delicious drinks or sample their tasty menu items, it is the ideal place to just sit back and relax. My husband and I really love the atmosphere there and the friendly staff makes the exprience all the more memorable.
Great Service – Tuesday nite is the place to be in Dallas. The wait is long but food and drinks are well worth the wait. I got great service from Tin. He made sure I got a table as soon as possible. He was very attentive. Thanks for a great time!
Dont be fooled by crowd, stay away! – This is the worst mexican food I have eaten, ever. The food tastes like reheated frozen food. The Margaritas are equally disappointing. My boyfriend and I just moved here and thought we would check it out because it is always so crowded. I really do not understand why anyone would go there more than once. I wouldn't eat there again if you paid me.
Primo's - I'm lovin' it! – I love this place, it's my favorite place to get away from real life and have a good meal with friends. Watch out for the jalape?o popper's, they're hot! Cheap drinks on Tues. nights and my main man Tinman keepin' an eye on things. Two thumbs up (your poo hole)! jk
Good place for bad drinks – yes, this place has cheap rita's, but they taste like bath water with some lime and salt added to it. Food is poor at best. I agree that Taco Bell has better food than this place. The patio is a good place to people watch, but there are too many mega-douches to make it worthwile. Get here early otherwise you'll be waiting for a long time to sit among the mega-douches.
Tuesdays nights! – If you can get past "Tinman," Primo's on Tuesday nights is the place to be! Their staff is awesome, and the crowd is easy on the eyes. What more could you ask for on a Tuesday night?
