yuck tacos

The tacos were terrible, at least the meat ones. They tasted like a shoe. Years ago,it had another name and it was not bad. This version is horrible. The staff was wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable.

The Guaco Loco is a hard taco resting in guacamole inside a soft taco shell. They have options of ground beef, fish (chunks, fried) or chicken (my favorite - is shredded). I have been eating the Chicken Guaco Loco with hot sauce and jalapenos (they are pickled not fresh) at this place for more than a decade and I never... More

Normally, I would pay a mandatory 17% tip service charge on the bill only if I got that the equivalent in courteous and prompt service for which they didn't. Overall, the food is pretty good but I don't care how it's a law on that street that you're charged a 17% tip on top of subtotal and taxes... Not worth... More

Nothing fancy.. just the annoying thing is that regardless of whether or not they do anything, in addition to tax, they tack on an "18% gratuity". Certain establishments (like this one) do not earn that amount in tips, and if you saw the place, and the ambiance, you wouldn't tip either.

I found this place about 10 years ago on a visit and remembered it as a neighborhood take out hangout. I raved about it then. Same place but upon walking in this time the girl taking orders took a while to warm up to us. Took her ages to take her hand off her face and get up off the... More

Now called T-Mex and opposite Cafe Deuce on 14th. They make everything fresh to order. It is great value for money and damn tasty Mexican food with a couple of beers. A much better way to spend your money than on the strip. Check it out - also Lime is a good alternative over on Alton.

T-Mex. This place lives up to it's name. (Tyrannosaurus-Mex) I had a prehistoric fish taco. They said it was Cod but was some cold hard petrified breaded thing that was a fish in a former life. A chicken taco had some untastful White dinosaur meat in it. The guacamole I ordered had no taste either and was served in a... More

My husband and I went here on a recent visit to South Beach. I had the chicken nachos and he the chicken burrito. Nothing spectacular but quite edible. It was reasonably priced. The food was pretty basic, shredded chicken, jalapenos, etc. Its definitely a place to go when you don't want to spend much. I'd give it another try.
