Best Mexican in Lafayette

This is a must visit if you are looking for great Mexican in Lafayette. I was introduced by a friend 5 years ago, moved away 4 years ago, and travel back to eat it every 3 months. Try it, you'll thank me, and Taco Rico!

Good selection of menu items. Free chips and salsa. We just had tacos - and picked an assortment from chorizo, carnitas, chicken and al pastor. Tacos were inexpensive and very tasty. Food arrived quickly and service was attentive and friendly. Will definitely be back next time we are in town. Well done Taco Rico!

We were driving along interstate 65 thinking about stopping for dinner as we traveled thru and read the reviews. We were hungry for Mexican food and tight we would give it a try. Delicious! Very reasonable priced! Matter of fact we were driving thru the state a cope of weeks later and we are going back! Worth the drive in... More

... in an area where ethnic food is limited to chain restaurants. We stumbled on to Taco Rico a few years ago and it is our GO TO place in Lafayette. Authentic, fresh ingredients. Anything with chorizo is my favorite, especially the Tortas or Tostada. Good chips and salsa. They only offer beer, so if you're looking for margaritas, you're... More

I had been looking forward to sampling some of their "Authentic" Mexican food, looked at their hours of operation online, and they had it listed as closing at 10:00pm. Left and made it to Taco Rico at 9:32pm. The signs they have posted on the doors of their actual establishment also state their closing time to be 10:00pm, but despite... More

These were some of the best fish tacos I have ever had. They could easily charge three times the price and be justified. Service was excellent!

This is a real deal sort of a place with a huge menu including chicherone, menudo, tongue and some interesting beef stew. The food is wonderfully authentic and the attitude good and service oriented. Nice people and interesting Mexican food. The best Mexican food in town.

The chips and salsa are my favorite in Lafayette, they are always fresh and in abundant supply. I would consider myself an amateur Mexican cuisine connoisseur and I can't stay away from Taco Rico. If you enjoy an authentic Mexican experience this is the place, go in the afternoon to see some football.

We have been enjoying this Mexican fare for a while now. We think the word "authentic" is over done. Yes they have cactus on their menu. Yes we tried the cactus, not our favorite item of their offerings. We are certain this is a very good place to eat Mexican food. The tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and fajitas have all been... More
