Saw where this place was voted as a place to go, way better than Taco Bell. Sorry I dont see it. It wasnt bad and they are a bit different as when you order a combo you also get rice and beans more in a restaurant fashion. I got a taco and burrito plate and while it was ok, it... More

Recently voted best restaurant in t-town... I don't know about that but the sweet tea beats all! The food is awesome, and is better than any other fast food in town, but would I choose TC over sushi from Hokkaido? Not a chance.

This is a fast food restaurant with pretty good food. this was out first time eating there and we were pleasantly surprised. Would recommend for a quick meal, although the drive thru was a little slow.

Taco Casa has pretty good food. The food is better than taco bell for about the same price. While the service is friendly it is also slow.

If you are in Tuscaloosa, go to Taco Casa. Taco Casa is its own genre of food in my mind. While it is Mexican food, it somehow feels different, but that is a good thing. Whenever I leave Tuscaloosa for an extended period of time, Taco Casa is always on the list when I return. The only thing that keeps... More

I feel weird reviewing fast food, but we were impressed. We came here right before close (which is never a good time for fresh food) but still enjoyed our meal. Large slices of REAL, fresh tomato on tacos and the white cheese/beef dip that comes with the nachoes was super. My husband and I were stuffed for less than $10... More

I was in town on business and decided to try this local chain based on TA reviews. It is fast food but it was much better than Taco Bell. My lunch was pretty good and the prices very reasonable. I will definitely visit again when in the area.

Never heard of this place before, but I'm glad I stumbled upon it. Yes, this is a fast food place, but the Taco's taste as good as any I have ever had. Sweet Ice Tea was to die for! I will be back.

Alwaya great tacos. Love the enchiladas and taco salad. Rest of menu questionable. My kids ask for their sweet tea. Been out of town lately and came home craving it! Building on 15th street rebuilt after tornado 2011 and nice and clean.

Hey, it's a fast-food Mexican restaurant, but about as authentic as that allows. All items freshly made in-house, and that's a welcome contrast to the nearby Taco Bell places, with their microwaved frozen food items.
