The local "go-to" place for Mexican fast food

A lot of times when I travel, I run into former members of our community, and one of the things that they miss most about Hays, is Taco Shop. They tell me that every time they come back to visit they always have to stop in for a "fix". I do understand others comments that the food is somewhat... read more

This is one of my favorite places to eat!! They have the best queso anywhere. We eat here whenever we can. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

The meat is not seasoned and the food is very simplistic. The recipes remind me of the day we made Mexican food in middle school home economics. I understand they are a locally owned business but I wish that wasn't all they had to stand on. Why does use of flavor and texture allude them? Might as well eat at... More

This place is what it is... A cheap, low-end, taco joint. The food is never good but always edible and very cheap. If you go in with these expectations then you won't be disappointed. I have had the taco salad which was edible. Nice freshly made taco shell with fresh lettuce, dodgy (?canned) chicken and somewhat inexplicably sliced olives on... More

This place has been around in Hays for quite some time and still continues to be great! I would consider this more Americanized Mexican food but still great! Staff was friendly, food was great, and the restaurant was clean. Only complaint was the time it took to get our food but that still wasn't a big deal. Highly recommend!

Nothing really special about this place for people who are not from the Hays area but those of you have spent time in Hays can also testify...good comfort food. Cheese and more cheese on the dishes. Since I have moved away from Hays I do miss having Taco Shop food. Whenver I do go through Hays I stop. Honestly I... More
