Reminder of taco johns

Taco time was average but a great quick fix for a hungry man. Reminds me of taco johns where I'm from but seems as if they use better ingredients so you get a bit better flavor. Being from an area filled with great Mexican restaurants I can't think of a fast food joint I can give more than 3... read more

When I went to give me tray back, instead of taking my tray, I was instructed to deposit it on my way out. I think they should have accepted it at the... More

This Taco Time was very good. Great food, as I loved the tacos as did my family. The service was great as they were nice and the place was pretty clean. We will return.

My daughter and I got a super bean and veggie wrap. The service was very good and the food was very good. The price was excellent and we would go there the next time we are in town no problem

Coming from the land of Taco Bell, Taco Time seemed a little pricey for the food. Taco Time has a more authentic mexican taste than Taco Bell, but it still kinda expensive. Was good food though and good service. The young lady that took my order seemed to be a teen, but was still kind enough to welcome me to... More
