We are from Texas now living in Cotacachi. So the search for good Tex Mex is always on our radar screen. We love Taco Bello and it is the best we have found. Small little restaurant that offers the best margarita's ! The owner Carlos prepares a wonderful little salad for us that helps us get our Tex Mex fix!

The owner is extremely friendly and his food is REALLY tasty (coming from someone born and raised in New Mexico)! The margs are good, the burritos and nachos are great... the salsa has quite a kick to... More

Clean, small, and very tasty Mexican food! A full menu of your favorite Mexican dishes, giant portions, just like the US.

After three weeks of Ecuadorian food the Taco Bello was a great change of venue. Two of us we're welcomed with salsa, guacamole and chips and seated in a very casual setting. We had daily specials, one fajitas with beans and rice, the other was two tacos, two enchiladas and a burrito. Guacamole was refilled without requesting. Two of their... More

Great little place that allows your taste buds to travel north to the Rio Grande Valley while keeping your body in South America. Abundant, tasty food that is prefaced by home-made chips and great guacamole... the basket and bowl appearing without cost onto your table. The only restaurant I've been in that has posters of JLo, Beyonce y Angelina Jolie... More

Food was very very good. Price was great and the quantity was excellent. Was impressed with it all! Not only was food good service was extremely friendly. Place was hopping too! A good sign. A little north of square but well worth your time.

Growing up near the border this place is the best for Tex-Mex. The service was also wonderful. Not the norm for living in Ecuador. Salsa that was hot and guacamole that rocked. We will definitely be returning. I don't know how long I can wait to come back.

We had heard from others this place was great. But it's way better than that. The guac and salsa are fresh and homemade. All the food is cooked right in front of you. Amazing value and the tastiest Mexican we've had! Yummy yummy
