My wife and I live 30 miles from Tuscaloosa. We make several trips there during a month and always eat here. The food and service is excellent. My wife loves Margaritas and has tried them all over the world ( US., Europe, Caribbean and South America). She say the ones here are her favorite. Also, ask for Charlie as your... More

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.

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
