We stopped in to Tafolino's on the spur of the moment last week. The place was packed, but we were seated immediately. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable. We were all very pleased with the food. It's a warm, friendly restaurant, and it's great to have it in the neighborhood.

So tasty. Popular place, always slammed for lunch. Quick and fast and really good. One of my favorite Mexican joints.

I used to eat here at least once a week until I moved from the area. Now its a treat to visit. The food and great service have not changed. Jose takes great care of us whenever we are there and I highly recommend the poblano burrito with chicken! Definitely worth the drive

Best Mexican Restaurant, Friendly Staff, great food and fast. Jose is usually our waiter but who ever it is always friendly and will sit and talk with you.

Food was okay, but a bit pricey. The kid's chicken strips were $7.00 each. Service was painfully slow, even for a glass of water. My meal was cold. I doubt we'll go back.

Our family loves this place! It is one of out favorite restaurants to go to. The waitstaff always goes out of their way to provide good service. We love the green chili and poblano burrito. I would highly recommend tafolinos for a casual place to take the family.

This family owned restaurant has tasty food at a good price. The service and atmosphere is average. The food is fresh with generous portions and the sauces are excellent. The margaritas are excellent, but the beers on tap are limited. I live nearby and it is nice to be able to walk to a decent restaurant.

Keep in mind that there are two locations for this restaurant. The one across the street to the south does take-out only. This place has been in its present location for years, and this venue is definitely sit down. Inside, I liked this place. I liked the decorations, I liked the authentic music, and I liked the atmosphere - kind... More

Food is good but the service is usually bad. We had not been here for awhile and went the other day for lunch. Food was out quick and was good but when we asked for a togo box we were snubbed by the waiter and never give one even when the table right next to us received theirs. The waiter... More

We ended up here after a long day of hiking and rock climbing. I was starved for a true mexican meal and this was just what I needed! True authentic tacos on homemade flour tortillas with perfect steak pieces, I had to ask for my limes, but it's okay! My meal was perfect and had large portions, enough to share... More
