It had been a while since I had lunch at Taco Deli and went there yesterday. It was even better than I remembered. The pollo fantastico tacos are amazing and Taco Deli uses free range chicken and organic ingredients as much as possible. Also don't miss the carne asada tacos which are delicious. Go for the blue plate special which... More

Really nice cashiers who gave us a rundown of the menu since we were visiting and had never been. 2 tacos was the perfect sized breakfast for us to take on the road. The migas was tasty!

Morning or afternoon, Taco Deli provides amazing tacos, but be prepared to wait in long lines especially during lunch and dinner hours. I'm a big fan of its standard breakfast taco of bacon, eggs, and cheese, but it has other great varieties such as avocado and bean for those who sway toward vegetarian fare.

Taco Deli really is phenomenal. Some places specialize in breakfast tacos OR lunch/dinner tacos. Taco Deli does both of them incredibly well. The way they puree their potatoes is amazing and the eggs are always creamy not overcooked and dry like a lot of other places. Their lunch/dinner tacos are wide ranging and truly delicious. I love their shrimp taco... More

There are many good taco places in Austin and I am sure many of them are more "authentic" but Taco Deli is a good choice for a tasty taco. They have an excellent special called "blue plate" that includes two tacos, beans and rice (some choices in rice and beans like mexican or brown and pinto, black and refried)). I... More

Hate to say it cause I live in Mexico, but Taco Deli has the best tacos! I loved my mojo fish taco, and the brisket one was great, too. This is the best place to satisfy nearly any craving you might have, and have it in a taco. Friendliest staff, too. Great guacamole and chips. Try the steak and veggie... More

I love Taco Deli. If I am having a meatless day - they got it. If I am craving fish - they got it. If I want something sweet - they got it. They just plain got it going on. They have choices of tortillas and if you are feeling healthy you can even get whole wheat. They will substitute... More

I am a Mexican, I love tacos, but taco deli really has de best tacos ever. No tacos in Austin as taco deli. The sauces are incredible, the habanero is just expectacular. If you are in Austin don't forget to stop by, just remember it closes at 3:00

This is more of a gourmet taco place. You need to order at least 4 to be full because they are small, so it is not terribly cheap. Everything we ordered was great! Service was quick & friendly despite a busy restaurant. Impressed by the quality (re: some local, organic) ingredients. Definitely go if you are in the area. They... More

There's a pretty big debate among taco connoisseurs in Austin, and they usually boil down to Torchys or Taco Deli - which reigns supreme? I'll review Torchy's separately, because it's awesome in its own right. But, hands down, the best place to get a taco in Austin is Taco Deli. Why? Awesome servers and service, the best selection of tasty... More
