Unlike most restaurants in Tuscaloosa this family owned restaurant feels very authentic and the food tastes homemade. The portions are very plenty so you might want to share their meals with someone. The decorations are very nice and add to the atmosphere.

Found the restaurant via Trip Advisor while on a business trip to Tuscaloosa. The online menu was pretty extensive with a lot of selection, so I thought I would try it. Ordered the Burrito Charo with shredded beef. It came out very quickly and piping hot. The first bite told me I was set for a wonderful meal. Probably the... More

This is the family's go-to favorite Mexican restaurant -- excellent salsa and guacamole, and a lovely range of entrees with fast service. There are plenty of options for the vegetarian family members. Reasonable prices!

We have eaten here twice since moving to Tuscaloosa and the food was wonderful both times-fresh, flavorful, and well presented. I got a Georgia Peach mixed drink and it was amazing. The service was prompt and the server was friendly and he got our order correct both visits. When I want Mexican food this is where I'll go.

Excellent food and service. We go here 3-4 times per month and love everything about it. THE BEST SALSA in town. Drink cup never goes below half full and the food is always great.

Los Tarascos has the most consistent customer service when it comes to Tuscaloosa dining. You will never have to wait too long to be seated - even when it's crowded. And you will receive nachos and salsa the moment you sit down. The wait staff always knows what you want to drink if you are a regular. When they see... More
