They have a great buffet everyday and an even better one on Sundays. Their tostada chips are wonderful.

Taco Loco is a hometown favorite for Shelby Township. I visited this week with my husband and again we ran in to friends. I decided to write a positive review for them after our friend said to me "This plays never fails!" He's right. Good food every time. $3.00 margaritas and friendly service. (:

One of the best Mexican restaurants I've been to outside of Chicago. I fancy myself a tacos de carne asada aficionado, and I was rather impressed with this joint. A bit on the expensive side, but amazing food. Not quiiiiiite a true taqueria flavor, but very close! I had an older Mexican lady as a server and she was fantastic!!!

We go here every once in a while as a treat. For Mother's Day this was my choice. They had a mariachi band playing which my kids loved. And a real treat was a free fried ice cream for moms. I really had no room left but we all shared it. My husband is now hooked on that fried cinnamon... More

The food is okay and the atmosphere is a little loud. The service is usually substandard and the cost is appropriate for the meal.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is great, especially their enchiladas. For a very reasonable price you can enjoy the taco bar which is very good.

The food is pretty good, at reasonable prices. The restaurant is quite dark inside and without windows. The decor could be updated, but we go there for the food and have no problems getting in and out. It's not a place to "hang out" with friends.

This was a rec. from a co-worker. We live in Birmingham, our bf's live in Richmond so we look for spots mid-way. Our friends arrived first and called enroute ' have you actually BEEN in here'???? Daunting when you walk in-looks like something you'd find in the UP. But we had made a res, which was promptly honored despite the... More

Taco Loco used to be a favorite local place for mexican food and we went often. Prices were fair and food tasty and plentiful. The last two times we have gone the service was terrible, food tasteless (bland mexican food???) and we sat for long periods of time without our server coming anywhere near us. Restaurant appears dirty and shabby... More
