Can't get it right

The Taco Stand is an Athens tradition, making fast, comforting tacos, burritos, and quesadillas for the past 30 years. I love The Taco Stand for sentimental reasons (and the salty chips, yummy cheese dip, tofu tacos, and veggie chili.) But, here's the problem. I used to get a lot of takeout from... read more

Taco Stand is a regular staple for me! Prices are reasonable and the food is consistently good. It's not outstanding tex-mex food, but it's good and consistent and priced right, thus my rating. I love the #1 Black Beans and Rice burrito with hot sauce. Comes with drink and order of chips and salsa for under $5 (or at least... More

It won't be the best Mexican food or Mex-American food you've ever had, but it will be tasty and fast. We get a quick meal here about once a week and it is cheap, fast and easy, but made from real ingredients unlike your average fast food chain. Chips are freshly prepared and cooked, salsas are made in the kitchen... More

Bottom line. Get the margaritas!! Food was great to share with a group. Queso and guac are small servings and I would not suggest the nachos if you love them in sauce (like I do). The quesadilla was great

Back in town as the next generation embarks on the college experience. Having a ball exploring old haunts and The Taco Stand was on the list! SO glad it still has incredible food and service - just as it did in the early 80's!!

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy. For the last two years and after the GDay game, my wife and I have enjoyed both experiences. We plan to come here everyyear. Great food and a great price!

Great local place to stop that offers phenomenal tacos! We ate at the one downtown, and noticed there was another on the outskirts of town. I'm sure it's just as tasty!

IWas looking for a quick snack and a few beers. I had two beef tacos and a few dos equis. The price was less than $10 and the food was not bad. Health score could have been higher but took a chance.

I've been eating at the TStand for over twenty years now and it is a must-visit whenever I'm in Athens. The deluxe meat burrito and a quesdilla with onions and peppers is awesome. The one at the corner of Prince and Milledge is my all time favorite but the downtown location is the one I usually visit now. The ordering... More

I've been eating here for years--all the way back to high school. My favorite thing ever is their cheese dip, which is the best I've ever had at any Mexican Restaurant--it has spinach in it. I love their quesadilla with chicken and onions. Their regular beef taco is also excellent. Be sure to try their homemade lemonade as well. Both... More
