Very tasty, wide variety of tacos and love how the shells are slightly hardened in their cooking process. Kind of a cross between a soft taco and and a hard shell. Simple and clean sitting area. A little on the expensive side for what it is but worth it once in a while for a special treat!

This place is simply AMAZING. The staff is super friendly and the food was delicious! Great atmosphere that was very friendly and inviting; we could definitely find ourselves studying there for finals! Also the owner is very nice and donated gift cards for a fundraiser our a cappella group, Minor Adjustments, was hosting! He went above and beyond for our... More

Both locations are amazing. The food is delicious and quick, handmade in front of you. The salsa is also delicious. If I could live in their kitchen, I would.

We loved the table tops covered in games and the ingenious burrito wrap. The menu is interesting but with an average execution. $42 for a family of four at a local taco place, sans alcohol, is a bit steep but it's a big step up from the average local fast food options.

Cheechako Taco has a unique blend of classic Mexican food with a modern commitment to healthy living. The menu is detailed and divided into distinct food groups; even the pickiest eaters will find something that appeals to them. The food is all fresh, and the dishes are cooked from scratch every time. The restaurant also tries to obtain as many... More

We visited the Clinton Street location last weekend and the Cornelia Street location yesterday. Both venues were neat and clean, the atmosphere was pleasant and the staff were friendly and efficient. The menu consisted of variations of Mexican fare with a North Country twist. It should be noted that the ingredients are fresh, the portions generous and the meals were... More

I've only just had the chance to try Cheechako Taco for the first time the past weekend. Their food was affordable and delicious. The service was mellow and very helpful, especially when trying to figure out what delicious food I wanted to try. Will definitely be back again soon.

I'm very happy with Cheechako Taco! I can eat there without fear of getting exposed to gluten. They take food sensitivities seriously. The food is yummy and the salsa to die for!

Don't go here expecting a taco bell style taco. They have an incredible variety because everything can be customized - salads, tacos, burritos, eggs and more. They are a great choice if you are looking for a place that serves the needs of vegan, gluten-free, etc. They have great names for their items - for places (Plattsburgh natch, Amherst, Abequerque,...
