Parade food choice

Good food. Service was a little slow but worth the wait. It was a good choice for late evening after the State Fair parade.

These flour tortillas are fried up so that they are crispy and delicious. One is like a meal. Add the tots and you've got dinner. They don't use tomatoes, but otherwise the taco is perfect. Manna of the gods.

Been there several times, the first time I had no idea how large the tacos are so thinking it would be like Taco John or Taco Bell I ordered 3 because I was hungry. They are huge. I was pretty full after eating only one. Forced down a second one but had the third one for breakfast the next day...... More

We have been going to tasty tacos for years. Love their flour tacos. Fried shell with a meat and bean combo. And their sauce is to die for. Its spicy but we always say we like to drink it. Thats how good it is. They also have a great kids meal with chicken tenders for kids who wont eat tacos.... More

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 All food is prepared to order and delivered fast. My favorite location is the original store on E.... More

We came to Tasty Tacos per Tripadvisor suggestion and were very pleased. We got the original tacos and they were delish. Our food was made to order and ready very quickly. I should have only eaten one taco as they were very filling and they put a lot of cheese, unlike other places. The taco is not a regular shell,... More

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.
