Busy, busy place - but good food!

This is a tiny place - seemed every time we were in the area, there was a sizable line. However, the line does move quickly. Seems locals like it as well. The food was good, but since we chose to take it out rather than wait for a table, it seemed to get smushed up a bit. Might help if... read more

Well I can’t believe it! I overlooked doing a review for Taco de Mexico in Morro Bay. I have been eating there for years, probably a decade if my memory is working. I really like their chili verde and it makes great tostadas and burritos. I just had a chili verde tostada, which is a bucket of lunch! The flour... More

Based on the long customer lines, my wife and I hoped this would be a good choice for Mexican food. Unfortunately, that was not the case. My chili relleno was a soggy, tasteless mess, and my wife's tacos had a distinct rancid overtone. Prices were reasonable, but perhaps you get (or less) than you pay for.

This is a small restaurant that works well for "Take-Out", but the crowded & limited seating should be considered at peak dining times. From my experience, the food is average, but the service is great and quick. There is ample parking, however, there is only one shared restroom that has to be accessed from outside at the rear of the... More

Amazing burritos! Quite a lot of people but fast service and since many brought their food to-go, there was no problem to get a place to sit.

We always eat at the Atascadero location which is good. But the Morro Bay location is 100 times better. I had a combo wet Chile Verde burrito. The meat was tender and had so much flavor. They also served this warm salsa which to my surprise was awesome. Good thing I got there when I did because there was a... More

Wanted a quick but filling breakfast before hitting the road, and found Taco de Mexico. I want one of these right next to my house. SO GOOD. We ordered chorizo breakfast burritos and struggled to eat the whole thing. At $6 a piece, they were a great value. Filled with egg and sausage. Lots of people got burritos to go,... More

I was craving good tacos since where I live isn't known for their Mexican food. The place came recommended and I would do the same. The guacamole was good and fresh chips along with a delish steak taco covered in my fav onions & cilantro with sour cream (because that's how I asked for it). You can even have a... More

This place is always a good stop for take out. The wet chile relleno burrito is huge, tasty and very inexpensive. The meat is always fresh and the food comes out piping hot. You can get breakfast burritos and platters all day and their choices are endless. Their salsa is very spicy and has a good kick. All in all... More
