Awesome Mexican food!

I am very picky about my Mexican food, and no place in town has satisfied me like Taco Works has! I stop by all the time for their potato tacos, with their pico and guac. Simple yet flavorful and satisfying! We love their nachos too! Tons of food piled on the plate, full of good flavors, leaps and... read more

Being one of the top rated places to eat in CDA, I had to try it. Wish I would have gone to one of the other several taco places within a mile. I went around 2:30pm, so maybe the food wasn't fresh, but none of it was very good. The beans seemed old and reheated, rice was greasy, and the... More

Stopped here for lunch based on other TA reviews and glad we did!! Super delicious Mexican and great value for the amount of food. We ordered the Wet Burrito ($6.50) and the Taquitos Plate ($6.00). The burrito was full of flavorful beef. The taquitos were crisp, beans and rice were tasty as well. The only down side of the taquitos... More

The chicken tacos are one of those items that will cause foodies to travel long distances just to enjoy the simple yet complex culinary masterpieces. We travel from missoula Montana just to enjoy there tacos.

This is a food truck location that does a great job with Mexican food. I like that they use a little garlic in some of the fixings. Gives it a unique flare. This is the best Mexican for to-go food in CDA. Prices are reasonable. They have a couple picnic tables if you want to eat while there. Not uncommon... More

We are on the hunt for a good food truck. Taco Works is not it. We stopped by around 3ish. Not busy. A few people here and there who obviously called in. We ordered pork sopes and beef sopes. They both had good flavor but they are definitely not sopes. They should be called tostadas. No way you can cut... More

I have not been to the Taco Works for over a year. My wife loves their chicken hard tacos, so we ordered 4. We were very surprised when we opened the container. The tacos were smaller than they used to be and even the ratio of chicken to taco shell had diminished. The chicken was still tasty, but it was... More

I had heard it was good, so the other day we stopped so I could try it for myself, and yep, its good. My husband had a chicken quesadilla (excellent), I had 2 shred beef soft tacos. Very good!! Will definitely get those again, tons of flavor. Next time I need to try a platter because I love rice and... More

I read reviews before traveling to the area and decided to give it a try for lunch. I ordered a chicken chimi and subbed rice for beans. It was very flavorful with a hint of spice. My husband wanted a snack so got a steak street taco. He was also impressed with how flavorful the meat was. It's been a... More
