Love me some Taco John's

So much better than the possibly better-known fast food taco chains! I love TJ's (crunchy) Potato Ole's particularly well and think they are made even better with their cheese.

So much better than the possibly better-known fast food taco chains! I love TJ's (crunchy) Potato Ole's particularly well and think they are made even better with their cheese. Visited here recently with two of the grandkids and they ordered seconds of their softshell tacos. I do wish they would bring back their Sierra Chicken of years past.

Stopped on our way to Denver, great service! It's fast food but we were treated like family! Definitely stop again! After being seated and eating for a bit , a lady came out and asked how we liked our meals and if we needed anything! You never get that with fast food!

I ate here several times while working in the area . Everything that I had taste great and they have a salsa bar to spice up your meal .The service was fast and friendly , and the prices were inexpensive . Great place to stop.

the tacos are great !!! The potato oles are much too salty which is sad because who doesn't like potatoes with cheese ! This much salt is killing us and it ruins the taste and I wont ever order potato oles again. We got a nice senior discount here

Below average fast food. Always busy with the local customers. The potatoes Ole, tater tot like fried potatoes are off putting. Open late and that is a plus.

Friendly folks but food was typical fast food. If you like tater tots you will love this place. I found the prices to be a little high but it is fairly remote and not too many options in Colby.

On a vacation to CO, we stopped on the way out and the way back. The Potato Ole's were great. Also loved the Taco Burger. Get the 6 pack and a pound and you won't be disappointed.

In a hurry to get back on the road we stopped at Taco John's. To try something new I ordered (2) walking tacos. They were very tasty especially by having the opportunity to add jalapeños, salsa, etc at the condiment bar. They were very busy but our order was delivered to our table quickly. Good place to stop for a... More

Taco John's here in Colby, Kansas is right off I-70 which makes it quite convenient for travelers passing through town. The food is typical of Taco John's, which means that it is different than Taco Bell but not necessarily better. The potato oles are, however, much better than any other place I know. The service was friendly and overall this... More

We stopped along the way back to St. Louis and wanted to try something we do not have where we live and were very glad we did! YUM! It was delicious! Especially love the Salsa bar! I gotta find one of these close to my home!
