Reliable Local Favorite for 30 years!

In my family, a trip back home to Jamestown isn't complete without at least one meal at Taco Hut. My brother and I have been eating here since it opened - more than 30 years - and that it is still there and thriving is a pretty good recommendation. Yes - its not Mexican, Mexican food - but most... read more

The service is good and the food is Mexican American. Overall a good value for the money. They have been downtown for a long time and that's because they offer value

Taco Hut is a downtown staple for what Jamestown calls 'Mexican' food. Location is good as there's usually plenty of street parking. They have daily specials which are very reasonable. The tacos are decent. The enchiladas are very salty. The queso/melted cheese is acceptable. The red sauce sits on the table in a plastic ketchup type dispenser. I had fajitas... More

I haven't been here for years because the food was mediocre, but the Cuban restaurant was closed today so figured we'd give it a try. The server was nice and the restaurant appeared to be clean. Weirdly, you have to pay for the mediocre chips and salsa ($3.60). I don't believe I've ever been in a Mexican restaurant where you... More

I love restaurants recommended by the locals - which is how my Mom and I found this lovely little spot for a "cheap n' cheerful" lunch. About a 5 min. walk from the Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz Comedy Centre, their photos and autographs grace the entrance. The portions are ample, the food so tasty! the service very fast n'... More

Came here for diner after a day of driving. The service was quick. We had gotten the sizzling fajita and a cheese quesadilla to share. It was plenty of food for two people. The chicken and beef in the fajita was cooked well with plenty of peppers and onions. Could have used a bit more cheese for them, but the... More

One of my favorite places in town. Consistently good food by a long-standing, locally owned business.

What can I say - it's our favorite local restaurant. I have basically been ordering the same meat & cheese burrito as long as I've been going there - because I love it! We go there at least once per month - sometimes more. The owner always visits with us when he's there. Friendly staff who have mostly been there... More
