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

Not your average Mexican restaurant. Upon walking in, you might think your at a chain by the way it looks. What a pleasant surprise to have authentic "street food" tacos, Our group tried several; shrimp, chorizo, asada, al pastor, pescado,lengua, barbacoa. Our favorites were barbacoa & pescado. The traditional cilantro/onion garnish made them perfect. They offered a kids menu with... More

We just moved here and have missed our favorite Mexican Resturant from "home". Just happen to drive by this place and saw all the cars. We made a quick turn in and what a surprise....we eat there at least once a week. IT is always busy and the food is always good.

I lived here for five years and loved going to Taco Rico. I have had the fajitas, the burritos, and the tacos. All were very good. My wife had the steak a la mexicana and it was excellent. All this said, the best meal is the chimichanga. My favorite meats tended to be either the carnitas or a combo of... More

The food is above average for Lafayette, but just barely. The service is always subpar, but today's was downright insulting. Waiter intentionally ignored my partner and me. We were given one refill, begrudgingly and after two requests. At one point the waiter walked past us as I was asking him for the refill and he didn't even acknowledge it. No... More

Service with a smile. Clean. Quaint. The salsas were fantastic, tacos were authentic, and beans and rice were good. Almost spot on to a true Mexican taqueria.

Taco Rico is a traditional Mexican restaurant in a strip mall at Greenbush and St Rd 52. I point that out because when I ask people if they've been there they don't even know where it is. It doesn't stand out visibly but is worth finding. This isn't Don Pablos or Pepes either. It's far more authentic. In fact they... More

I would pit Taco Rico's food against anywhere in the Southwest. We used to live in Southern Arizona and we miss the great food. This is Sonoran/northern Mexican food, not the greasy southern meat-centric food you might get elsewhere. Everything we've had here is delicious, but we're especially fond of the cheese enchiladas with red sauce and the chili rellenos.... More

First, the salsa was amazing. If I were basing this review on just that, I would give it a 5. The portions are large. I couldn't even finish my taco salad. The food was good, but not the best or second best Mexican place I've eaten. The service is what knocked this down from a 4 to a 3. We... More
