Great place to enjoy some good, enjoyable Mexican food and your favorite beverage. The cheese sauce is good tasting but a little thin. Chips are fresh and crisp. Large selection of tacos and burritos will satisfy most palates. This was a good fun place to eat when we were in Athens but is probably very packed for UGA game days.

These days when I come to Athens I always stop here. Their cheese dip is so unique with such a depth of the perfect flavored with a tiny bit of spice. I always get the mega burrito and share. It's just a consistently great meal & service. Of all the amazing restaurants in Athens this is my current favorite spot.

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 the Milledge location, but I have to check... 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!!

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!
