Good food and good atmosphere. The hostess was kind and the waitresses even more nice! The manager, however, was RUDE. I requested a manager to see if there was anyway to accommodate our party of 15 p...eople. I called the day before and we were encouraged to come by but nothing was guaranteed, understandably. We were told our party had to separate so I asked for a manger just to ask if there was any other options. Her attitude was unacceptable from the second she walked up. She didn't even introduce herself. I've worked in service for years and understand when there's nothing you can do to accommodate someone but in those situations it's most important to have a friendly and kind attitude toward the customer. On top of her rude approach, as we were walking back to sit down she told us, "If you don't like it then you can leave". A restaurant manager's priority should be GOOD customer service above all things. See More

My boyfriend and I go to Imperial at least once a week for over a year, food is always delicious, drinks are unbeatable. I’ve never had any issues in the years I’ve been going. Just be prepared to wai...t for a table; but it’s worth it. See More

Imperial is a tough one to review. On one hand you have 4 stars for the super friendly service, nice atmosphere, and location. On the other hand, you have a basic two star taco if you take the above a...way. The food, while fine enough, is overpriced, unpredictable in quality, and overthought for a hotdog and taco joint. Go for fun, go for convenience, don't go for the tacos. See More

I’ve been there numerous times but last night I decided to bring my boyfriend along and he instantly became just as obsessed as myself! The guacamole is to die for, the tacos are fantastic and the coc...ktails are always so good! We also decided to try the churros, please everyone do yourself a favor. The idea of Communial tables was honestly intimidating at first (I normally sit at the bar), but it ended up being a blast! I love Imperial. See More

Waited 3 hours for a table. Got table. Waited 45 mins for drinks. Then waited another 45 for food. Saturday night (obviously busy) finally got food. All the food was cold.... walked out. Manager was r...eally shifty with us too. Mind you, I was with a party of 12 See More

The salsas they bring out w chips are awesome! Any of the hot dogs (even veggie ones) are divine. Margarita was probably the best I have EVER had. My husband loved he carne asada tacos too! It was kin...da weird sitting at a table w others that you don’t know. But, the amazing food made up for feeling awkward! See More

My experience was good to begin with but I was amazed by the lack of vegetarian options for the tacos. One vegan taco? Definitely not enough to bring me back, hoping to see more options soon.

I was here for lunch to celebrate my niece’s 30th Bday. I have to say the taco’s & hotdogs were unique but tasted great. The picnic style seating was cool. You can sit as little or as many you have in... your group. It was very crowded which suggested good food & service. I totally agree & look forward to going back! See More

My friends and I have been going here for years. While the wait can be significant during peak times, I have never had a bad experience. The drink menu is vast, the staff is beyond friendly and the fo...od is fantastic. Particularly with the food, there are many vegetarian and vegan options which accommodate a lot of my friends. The salsa flight is a must. See More

Ok service (although they couldn’t tell me what the three sauces were that they brought to the table). Very good pastor taco. Uber-greasy chorizo taco. Grey looking pollo taco, that I was too afraid to try.

One of my favorite restaurants. I go here at least a couple times a month. I love showing friends this place and I constantly reccomend it to friends, family and coworkers.

First time here and it was incredible. The guacamole was good, but the al pastor tacos just blew me away. Best I’ve ever had. Thank you for the wonderful service and food.

I go to imperial way too much and really need to diversify my restaurant choices. But their tacos are amazing and their margaritas are on point so why stop?

We had amazing service! The bacon wrapped hotdogs and tacos were impeccable. I can’t wait to come back.

Good food, great drinks. I hate the seating and it's usually too busy to enjoy for more than a quick taco and shot. I don't like sitting with strangers?
