My family and I have been going to Taco Bar for 6 months now and they never disappoint. Ramon is always very friendly and the food tastes very good. We have taken our Hispanic friends there as well and they have all said the food is very authentic and delicious. I highly recommend eating at The Taco Bar.

Was just here yesterday for lunch. Great food and good value. Twin Oaks location or Mission are both excellent.

The best posole I have ever eaten, better than my wife's abuella. The other foods are fresh and generous servings. Good selection of cerveza's.

We prefer the original Mr. Taco on Mission Rd. Love their street tacos. For some reason, we don't like Mr. Taco #2 up at the Ralph's shopping center as much, but it's still good.
