... 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

My mom's side of the family is from Guadalajara Mexico. I can remember a distinct taste in my grandmother's cooking. A taste that I can never find in any of the Mexican restaurants I visit today (and I've been to a lot of them in many states). But today taco Rico impressed me. The food was fabulous. It reminded me... More

The salsa is house made and for the most part is a bit on the spicy side. My husband also likes the red and green sauce to make it even more spicy. They make their own pico salsa too. It is amazing. Top dishes there are the combination platter and the carne asada. Prices are very reasonable. Their chorizo is... More
