Good food

Best steak tacos In Phoenix!! Great menudo and chilequilles as well. They have a salsa bar all great and fresh and chips all fresh and taste great. Different Levels of spice to appeal to all. My 4 yr old son loves the chips and salsa.

Like many other reviews the food was terrific -- no complaints. My issue came when I didn't want rice and beans on my burrito. I was told that the burrito would be that big without these ingredients. Not sure what difference it makes if that's not the way I wanted it. I don't like Spanish rice but requested to have... More

We were thrilled to find this place to eat. We were not in our neighborhood and figured we would run into a Wendy's. This place had lots of patrons so we thought we would try it. Wow! Clean, handmade tortillas, yummy salsa bar. The grilled Mahi Tacos were amazing . The store manager is really committed to customer service.

We are local but live in another area of town and not familiar with the options. We noticed that this restaurant was busy and decided to give it a try. Lots of options for lunchtime. The manager recommended the special grilled mahi tacos. He offered to take them back if we didn't like them. They were delicious and a real... More

This has become one of my favorite places for great tacos and enchiladas. Love their salsa bar and unlimited self-serve chips.

This place offers excellent authentic tacos and the variety of salsas is just great. I recommend this place to anyone who is tired of restaurants that try to offer authentic Mexican food, but fail to meet the standards.

I have been here five maybe six times in the last three years and every time the place was a mess. The salsa station always looks destroyed and unattended. I waited over twenty minutes for this fast food which gave me enough time to look around. I sat there and watched a bug crawl across the blinds that haven't been... More

I was hungry....unfamiliar with Phoenix and decided to give Taco Tote a try. I expected typical Mexican fast food. I was very surprised. First the menu was varied and offered something for everyones taste and appetite. The pound of fajita with sides was perfect for two people. Self serve chips and salsa bar allowed you to find just what you... More

We've been asking around to find the most authentic Mexican Food in Phoenix. Most of what we have tried has been....well, not what we were looking for. We were in Mesa today, right by the El Taco Tote, which was between an Arby's and another Mexican Fast Food place. El Taco Tote was recommended by a friend, and he was... More

I've been to the location in Tucson and Mesa. Really good, cheap. You order at a counter and they bring it to you. Great place for very informal, family food.
