We used to drive by this place and it was always crazy busy. My husband and I decided to go the other night. It should've been a clue when there were no cars in the parking lot. The place inside Is really big but looked dirty. We walked up to the counter and waited and waited. No one came to... More

I tried the enchiladas they were average, everyone else tried the bar b q ribs they are good. Value is good for what you get. The tortillas taste homemade and fresh. I think it is a good value to take families as you can purchase a family meal. If you don't eat meat not the place for you.

Short Version: Good food especially their beef (and reasonable lunch specials), friendly staff and a laid back atmosphere (with a host of Tejano and regional bands several times a month). The building might be a turn off for some, but if you get can past that, it's definitely worth a taste...or two or three. Longer Version: Taste of Texas has... More

Fun atmosphere, good food. It's a big cavernous building, but it works just fine for finger-lickin' good food

Their staff was great. Got our seats right away as well as food/drinks. And as a smoker, thanks for having a place for... More

My menudo took more then 30 mins. Nick’s Taste of Texas restaurant the workers don’t care of the service... More

I was pretty unimpressed with the food and ambiance at Nick's Taste of Texas. My partner and I ordered a couple of dinner's there and were disappointed with the bbq sauce and dessert. I am from the South and I definitely did NOT find this to be close to anything that tastes like Texas. The meat itself was reasonably good... More
