Haven't been here for a couple of years and glad I came back. Good service and food with quick kitchen times. Wish the smoking section would go away. I had the chicken nachos. Friendly staff.

This is a GREAT Mexican restaurant to eat at. The food is always good, hot, and fast. Service is great as well. I give it a tie with El Nopal. 2 GREAT Mexican restaurants in the same small town. Can't beat it!

Stopped by here while driving on business. A lucky stop for me. A fine seafood burrito. That is all I have to say but this requires me to write more letters on my submission

My husband and I usually eat here once a week. We love their hot salsa. Not only does the food taste great (especially the Fajita Grande) but it is served by the friendliest staff. We always have a great experience when dining here.

I'm not a huge Mexican food lover but I thought El tarasco was good. It was nice and clean and the food was good and reasonably priced.

We ate here last Tuesday (10/15) because it was close to our hotel, and we really like Mexican food...Where we live, Acapulcos is the best so we go there whenever we want Mexican food...El Tarascos is better than Acapulcos!...In fact, it was very much like the Cancun's that we had in Edgewood about 15-20 years ago...It was a pleasant surprise,...

We travel I-65 from Louisville to Mobile every year at least once if not multiple times. We're always looking for good places to eat. This restaurant is about one mile ( to the west) from the interstate Shepherdsville exit 117 They have a great menu with excellent service. I had the Pollo Loco, a delicious grilled chicken breast with peppers... More

It's no el nopal. 4.25 for guacamole is a bit much. Chicken tasted like it was old. Chicken nuggets & fries weren't good either.

Really great service. Clean restaurant. Food was great, and a great price! Found a coupon text number in the restroom, had the coupon within minutes, which made the price even better. We would go back if in the area again.

Been going there for years. It's a dirty run down spot, with the normal 30 Mexican combinations on the menu.
