Food was average and way overpriced. Margarita's were bottled and weak. No draft beer. The server's BO was horrible. I will not go back.

Delicious food & friendly staff! It might not look like your perfectly landscaped chain restaurant, but usually the best food is found in these "run down" looking places. And for the previous review, next time read your gift certificate - duh!

Don't be turned away by the outside appearance. It may look like a bit of a dive, but it is a quaint restaurant. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was good and the menu offered some different dishes than most "mass mexican" restaurants. If I were local, I'd eat here for my Mexican fix. Good find.

Ordered the enchiladas...bland sauce with flavorless rice. Chips were ok; crunchy, salty & hot. But that was the only good part of the meal. Atmosphere tired and tables/booths old & lighting drab. Had to ask for refills when there was only 2 other people in the place.

Great food, great value. If you are like me, you drive by Taco Mexico all the time, but don't even think about stopping. It's time to change that. Trust me, you will be so glad you did. The food is great, and value is amazing. This restaurant is family owned, so the turnover of staff is really low. I go... More

Went here for the beer thought why not do food. Well when the food arrived there was also a roach that had been smashed to the bottom of my plate. Then after I returned my plate there was another one running across the floor. Never go there again even if the beer is cheap.

I've had several great lunches at this place, but went with friends for dinner on Saturday night and we were mightily impressed. I had carnitas tacos... succulent, perfectly spiced pork in soft corn tortillas, and they were just lovely. Elsewhere at the table, the chicken mole was pronounced "among the best I've ever had," and enchiladas suizas were very good... More

Totally agree with other posters - this place looks TERRIBLE from outside, but is AMAZING inside. The first time we ever tried it, we almost turned around after pulling into parking lot, but luckily didn't. Like most Mexican, the service is extremely prompt. Everything we've ever ordered has been great and it is EXTREMELY affordable. Highly recommend.

The exterior looks weary and not well maintained but don't let that dissuade you from trying the place. When the restaurant is packed with Hispanics, you know it has to be good. We routinely eat at this restaurant. The staff is friendly, efficient and the food arrives rather quickly after ordering. The only negative I can write about are the... More

We have been living here for 4 years now, and we always ride pass this place. One night I was craving Mexican food, and we decided to stop in. I must say that the building is not appealing at all, but the food made up for it! It was absolutely the best food ever (and I am VERY picky). It... More
