Good for a fast meal on the Square

If you like Chipotle, you'll enjoy this knock-off just off the square on Van Buren. Sometimes you just want a quick, tasty meal instead of waiting an hour for a table at one of the finer places on the Square. South Depot fills the bill. The food is tasty, and you design your own dish as you... read more

We had lunch here and enjoyed it. The tacos were great (great options to chose from or make your own) and the chips, salsa and guacamole were good too. We enjoyed our meal and would go back.

I have eaten here a few times and asked about tips. I was told that the workers don't get to keep the tips, that they go to the owner. I thought maybe the employee was mistaken so I asked 3 other employees on different occasions and was told the same. I enjoyed the food and service was fine but I... More

Honestly, I love the food here. But seriously.. I cannot stand the incompetencies behind the taco bar. With four people back there idly standing while I wait for the one person who's working to make my food, you'd at least thing someone would hand me some silverware when I payed... If you don't expect that, you might at least expect... More

Fresh meats, fish, produce and cheeses make this a fun place to eat. You can order straight from the menu or create your own masterpiece. Great frozen Margaritas.

Nice little burrito/taco shop similar to Chipotle,Qdoba, and Moes. Food was very good and fresh; however, the portion size seems to be slightly smaller than Chipotle but the cost is about the same. Overall good food and would definitely go back.

Don't worry if the line stretches to the door, the efficient staff gets you taken care of quickly. The guacamole is a favorite, but I recommend the "Trio" of dips. The tacos are made to order from a huge variety of options much like an omelet station. It's a clean, casual atmosphere that is a good family option and the... More

Think of a Subway like taco shop and you're pretty much there. Good tacos, made quick. Can't complain. Have eaten there three times now and will do so again. Parking is a bit of an issue because of where its located on the Square but other than that, good!

Taco depot has a west coast beach feel. The decor of the restaurant is nice. It has plenty of seating. I can image this place gets packed during weekday lunch. I ordered the buffalo chicken taco and the pulled pork taco. Both were superb. This restaurant is very similar to chipotle or qdoba. It may be better, I have to... More
