Best steak flour tacos. Been eating them for years. Also the flour nachos are also great. The con queso to dip them in is good also. Always fast service. Nothing fancy but good food.

I have been going to Tasty Tacos for 4 decades, and they have been around for 6, I believe. The authentic fried flour tacos are to die for! We used to drive 2 hours from college to Des Moines to eat these treasures. The new pork flour tacos are awesome!! The Mosqueda family has expanded in the last few years... More

This restaurant is one of our family favorites. Keep in mind, this is not a fine dining experience, just good food fast. We have enjoyed going to all of their locations but the East Grand location, the original, is still our favorite. The flour tacos and enchilada's are the best in town.

Made for the mid west palate, flavorless and cheaply made. Sorry but true. I like to be fair on reviews but i can't here. Being rated so high on a Trip Advisor for the Des Moines area I had to try when I was in town. With all due respect it was absolutely aweful and expensive, trust me. Yet if... More

I always get two beef taco and eat them with lots of salsa. I sometimes get their homemade chips and guacamole when I splurge... More

Finally, finally ate at Tasty Tacos at their new location in Jordan Creek. I had the pork taco in a flour tortilla and a side of beans. Husband had the same along with an original enchilada. Absolutely delicious, fresh and well prepared. There are 5 other locations in the greater Des Moines area and this is the newest, all family... More

They have a large menu but I have never had anything other than the their original taco. Try one or two and you will be hooked!
