Maybe I got my hopes up too high. I like the puffy shell, but my chicken taco was the most tasteless I've ever had, even after adding guacamole and red sauce. And they don't even have fish tacos or even soft corn tacos available. Guess I've been spoiled by the other guys.

This family owned restaurant is simply the best kept secret in Des Moines. Everything on the menu is exceptional. The flour tacos are my favorite and I usually eat too many. I should probably stop at two but usually get three and an enchilada as well. The food is prepared to order and delivered fast. My favorite location is the... More

I always hesitate on ratings of fast food restaurants, finding it hard to believe some of the ratings. However, I always lean towards local and non franchise (large) and decided to try this. I questioned my decision at first, but the food sealed the deal. We had taco salads and the original flour tacos. They were very tasty and worth... More

Love the original flour taco! We have eaten in and taken out, and there is never a bad taco, enchilada, or tots! They have great salsa to. Every time my family visits from Oklahoma we always make a trip to Tasty Tacos, as this is their favorite. Always a smile at the cash register, and never a very long wait.... More

Tasty tacos is a delicious fast food taco restaurant. Stick to the classics- tacos! The flour tortilla is fried, for a special, delicious unexpected, if not so healthy treat. Expect a counter where you get a number after ordering, and you come collect your meal when it's ready. Cleanliness and ambiance are comparable to a McDonalds, but the food is... More

I've eaten and loved Tasty Tacos for as long as I can remember. I love how their taco meat has beans in it, and the way it is seasoned. It is juicy, and the fried tortilla catches and abosrbs the juice perfectly. I love their finely shredded cheese. And their special taco sauce. Stick with the tacos if you are... More

We've visited several of the Tasty Tacos locations throughout Des Moines! Their food is all very consistent which I appreciate! We fell in love with Tasty Tacos when we lived in Ames and used to visit there often! Now we just get to catch a taste while we're stopping through DSM but it's always on the top of our list!...

We were visiting Des Moines and looking for a no-chain fast food restaurant and found it. We ordered a flour taco for $3 and it was very unique and so was the sauce that came with it. The corn taco was $2 and was also very good, but not as big as the flour taco. We also ordered flour nachos... More

I was scepital at first, but was very happy with it. The rice is excellent never had rice this good. The flour tacos were also very good. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area that is looking for some good Mexican fairly quickly.
