Los Tarascos serves awesome margaritas and huge chille rellenos. You can have chicken, shrimp, ground beef, steak or cheese stuffed. They are large and delicious.

The steak and chicken are very good options. The beef is not as good. The seafood has a serious frozen taste. But the salsa is some of the best I have tasted. The service is ok. And the prices were average. Check out the authentic tacos! Very unique flavor.

Cheese dip was very thin and the salsa was not spicy at all like it should be at a Mexican restaurant. Back home in Florence we have a place called La Hacienda and it's way better.

My family and I ate lunch here on our way to Atlanta. We couldn't find Dreamland, so we got back on the interstate. Traffic was so terrible that we got off at the first exit we came to and we're so glad we did as we found this restaurant! Mexican is probably one of my favorite foods, so I've eaten... More

I loved the atmosphere and not to mention how great the food and service was. It was amazing. I had tacos and rice and beans. My friend had fajitas and they were delicious. Great authentic food. I'd go there over any other mexican restaurant in the area!

It is rare to find a jewel of a restaurant, hidden in a strip mall. But on occasion, you can stumble upon one by accident. My family and I found Los Tarascos about 6 years ago when we had taken a wrong turn. Now I am a sucker for Mexican food. I mean GOOD Mexican food!!! Not the type where... More

Everyone I knew said it was great but I thought it was average. I will go back and try again to be sure about this place.

Referred by front desk clerk at Candlewood Suites. Not disappointed AT ALL! Got a to-go order. While waiting I had chips & salsa with a margarita. Was hoping my order would be as good as what I had in the restaurant. It was great and everything I ordered was there. YUM! YUM!

Stopped there for lunch during a crazy busy day of car shopping on the Skyland Auto Mike strip... Service was fast. Prices were reasonable. Food was delicious. Portions were huge! I ordered beef but my vegetarian daughter found many non-meat options and was delighted since it is difficult to find vegetarian food in Tuscaloosa. We will Stop here again!
