We were traveling looking for a Mexican restaurant with good ratings. El Tarasco showed up on the radar and was close to where we were staying. The food was about average the waitstaff was a little on the unattentive side but very nice. The restaurant was clean. Just average

Some dishes are good but have had better Mexican food. Waiters very nice but not the cleanest restaurant don't go very often and go to El Nopal most of the time,

Friendly staff, but my dinner wasn't good . I got fish tacos and I couldn't even figure out what was in the filling... I thought I got someone else's order. Very greasy and full of burnt onions . Not good

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,...
