Taco Heaven.

You just tell them what you want and they make it happen. The taco sauce tastes home made to me. My Mom was a great cook and she would of loved this place.

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.
