Taco Rico Tex Mex Cafe and Gaudalajara's down the highway are the two best Tex Mex/Mex Mex restaurants I found in Miami ..I'm sure there are a few others undiscovered by me but these two are good enough. Taco Rico is small with only a half dozen or so tables and a lot of the business is take away. You... More

Small hole in the wall with great food ......never had anything that wasn't good. My current fave is the green chicken , but the tacos are always a good choice. Whenever I'm in this area I stop in. Parking is tight but there is a Starbucks next door.

Great Burritos at very reasonable prices; eat in or take out. Flavor exceeds your expectations and very reasonably priced for the large portion.

This is a UM student's mecca. Although I am no longer a student I still come here monthly for my fix of great chips & salsa and tex mex style Mexican food. You can get it authentico or more Tex-Mex. They can do both. The fish tacos, fajitas, street tacos all can't be beat. And you won't spend more than... More

I stopped in with my son for a quick lunch and the food was pretty gross. We ordered the lunch special which included a chimichanga and burrito - the chimichanga might as well just have been a burrito, a stale one at that. The chicken in both tasted old and was hard to chew. The whole experience was pretty disgusting.... More

We found Taco Rico by accident while enroute from Miami Airport to the Keys. It turned out to be one of the best Tex/Mex meals we've had in years. The place is not impressive in appearance, but the food is excellent, service is fast and good and the prices are reasonable. We will certainly return there the next time we're... More

I really like Taco Rico. I go there all the time. Their food is very good, filling, and decently priced. If you go there on Mondays they have really cheap tacos $0.89 I think. They are so good and It's fun to sit outside and chow down on some yummy tacos. Who doesn't love that!

Guaco Taco and you can not go wrong. This is a staple on south beach. If you know good food you know about this spot, or you should!

No atmosphere but great food and a great price. Service is fast, food is hot, and the salsa bar is not bad either.

The Churrasco was excellent as was the friendly service! The Chimichuri sauce was good but not the best. The steak didnt need it, though.
