Mexican Yummy

I guess Mexican food is all the same - or is it? This food is very good but when you live in California and go to the Mexican hole in the walls where no one speaks English - well that food is not Americanized. Example: in Lompoc there is a hole in the wall with El Pastor. It was made... read more

The premium Margareta was so sweet I had to ask for 7 up to mix in it. It was still nasty and sweet. The steak, chicken and shrimp fajitas wasn't seasoned with anything, was so blah that I used salt and I don't salt anything! The servers were nice but not worth going bk when we have better, closer to... More

Everyone in town loves this place! The food, prices and service are all great. They make their own torillas right in the window and you can have them come to your table to make fresh guacamole.

I ordered Papas Don Rajas as it is vegan. Potatoes sautéed with onions and jalapeños. Good flavor, however it could have used some more spice as the jalapeños were not spicy. Evidently no seeds. The Negra Modelo beer is my favorite Mexican beer. There were other vegan options which will entice me back. The table was inside the building but... More

Authentic Mexican cuisine. Awesome margaritas-try the pineapple jalapeno. I love the salsa. If you like guacamole, you'll love theirs-they make it tableside!

If you like authentic Mexican food, this is a must-stop! One of the best restaurants in the area! Ownership and staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. Great margaritas and beer selection.

The food at Taxco is authentic Mexican cuisine like you can find easily in a big city like Chicago, but seldom find in rural areas where ethnic restaurants tend to be very Americanized. This restaurant has grown over the years due to its popularity and now has banquet accommodations. The food, however, has maintained its quality and the service is... More

Great food a family business. Known for their margaritas so make sure to try one. Great place to sit and enjoy dinner with a group of friends or just a dinner for two. Jesus the owners mother makes flour tortillas at the window in the evening. Great people who run this location. The business has a large Cinco De Mayo... More
