The building is outdated but if you are looking for some... read more

We only ventured outside once during three days of 100-degree heat - we walked around the block to Jimboy's Taco place. It is authentic Mexican; you can always tell by the cilantro and lime and whatever other magic they put into it. They put grated parmesan on the outside of the freshly-fried taco shells - I have never seen that... More

The best fast food tacos you will ever have. I don't know what it is about them but they are off the hook good. We do not have Jimboy's where we live so anytime we travel past one we have to get some.

We love Jimboys but this spot was poorly maintained with one restroom for all staff and guests. The tacos were not quite up to Jimboys excellent standard. Wonder if this is one that keeps the name but is not part of the corporation.

We came to Reno for a family reunion and stopped by twice just for the Tacos. We all live in different states and have never had Tacos like these before. Sure the ground beef is a bit messy but the flavor was great. What makes these special are the shells... not oily and wonderfully crisp with cheese on the outside!

I went through the drive-thru, so the service was fine. The taco's oil had soaked through the crispy corn tortilla, and continued to drip as i ate it. What a mess.
