Creative Mexican dishes in sprawling, lavish space with vaulted ceilings, plus a huge tequila list.- Google
"Small portions of food, but a creative menu and very delicious."

It's a little crazy, but I think that's part of the charm.Also, unlimited free salsa. I had a burrito, it was amazing, and so cheap.Keep in mind that it is cash only. Saying this place is no frills is an understatement, and it's a little dirty...but honestly, it really was maybe the best burrito I have ever had. We were there late on a week night and it was still busy but we got a table. I'm super jealous of anyone that lives close enough to go here often. I'm still thinking about it!

I actually went to Mas Malo ready to not like the place. I looked through the menu online and options on the menu like kale or vegan menudo made me assume this was going to be a painful dining experience. But then, we arrived. What a beautiful space, it is gorgeous, I could've stared at the ceiling all night, but then my food arrived. My chile relleno, rice, and beans were as authentic as those from my grandmother's kitchen, although I can't really remember her ever making chile relleno, but you get what I'm saying. And if you're into the alcoholic libations, you've got plenty of options, I personally had La Guera, horchata and rum, which was AMAZING!

My only complaint about Mas Malo on a recent visit is the guacamole. Don't order it! It was bland and pasty, no zip or flavor at all. I left it alone. The irony is that the Kroger nearby has excellent guacamole. The tables can be a bit sticky also, but I love the photos on the wall and the dark, grotto like interior.

Went there for a nice Saturday brunch and couldn't have been more delighted. Reasonably priced fare with some very creative Mexican dishes. Honey carintas, pancakes with an egg on top. I highly recommend

Eaten here so many times I can't count now but the food is always amazing. Carne asada & eggs for breakfast or the Honey carnitas & short stack of pancakes is life changing!

Bar is cool, food is pretty good. Seating area is interesting. Fairly friendly staff here as well.

Mas Malo can be summed up with two words (even though I'll take more): chewy chips. You might not see them listed on the menu, but you should always ask for a basket, and then get ready to order a second one. The salsas that accompany them are tasty, even if the rest of the food disappoints. The space is cavernous, and it's a good meeting spot for friends. Once you're finished, it's just a quick stroll up the stairs to Seven Grand.

Good looking restaurant in DTLA. Food isn't why you'd show up there but the bar is their strong suit. Try the upstairs bar for a less crowded experience.
