Best sweet tea ever!

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.

It is truly fresh and very good. Every University of Alabama student that returns to Tuscaloosa goes there first thing when getting in town. It's a craving. I have seen pregnant girls buy a bag of sanchos or burritos to freeze if they live somewhere else- I did!!

Tacos were good and price was right . The only weird thing was the cheese. It's not shredded , it is similar to liquid Nacho cheese sauce, so the enchilada was drowning in liquid cheese.

Best in town if you're looking for fast mexican food! A good price for excellent food that never disappoints. I've never met anyone who has anything bad to say about it, it's a must if you're in Tuscaloosa. Roll tide!

Every time I go to Tuscaloosa, AL I stop at a Taco Casa. Their enchiladas are great, and my whole family loves it!

Please open a location in Mobile! I remember when there was one in Bel Air mall before the Target replaced the Food Court. I drive to T-town just for the tacos and usually bring home 15 or so burritos to go. Mobile and the Eastern Shore need you!!!

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

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
