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.

We arrived at 7.30 on a sat night, no reservation, promptly seated. Before we were settled, a server was there to take drink orders and leave menus. Within another minute, fresh chips and salsa arrived(complimentary). The salsa was very good, medium heat and a hint of cilantro. Drinks arrived and orders were taken only a minute after the chips &... More

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.
