Lazy Sunday dinner

We had dinner at the Taco Diner after watching a movie at the Magnolia Theatre, across the street. The service was great despite the fact that the place was busy. The food came out in record time and our water and tea were filled up constantly. The vibe was good and it was great to sit outside, eat... read more

This place was delicious! We especially loved the queso and the margaritas! You also can't go wrong with the fajitas. We will definitely be coming back!

For those of you who like to go to a Mexican-style restaurant and fill up munching chips and salsa non-stop, this is NOT the place to go! It was hard to rank which was worse - the chips or the dips (and I tried all the dips). The chips are certainly a no-go as they were thick and greasy. This... More

My friends and I decided to forgo the long wait at Mi Cocina and walked across the street to Taco Diner, the sister restaurant. We sat on the patio, which is great for people-watching on a hot summer evening. Fans were blowing, which kept us cool. The cocktails were good, but the tacos weren't. I ordered tilapia fish tacos which... More

I love going to Taco Diner for the drinks and the fun atmosphere. I've always had a wonderful experience with the staff and I would recommend this restaurant to almost anyone. The nachos and quesadillas are my go to (always delicious), but I am not a fan of the salsa.

I used to be a very frequent visitor and I loved Taco Diner but since I have moved out of the area, I haven't gone very often. My husband and I made the trek to Taco Diner on Sunday for their breakfast/brunch because it's BACK on the menu! The brunch menu has terrific options. The coffee isn't bad. You have... More

The tacos here were not normal. I ordered the shrimp tacos. The soft tortilla had a plastic taste that took over the taste of the taco and the ingredients inside the taco were huge and the tortilla was tiny filled with one large shrimp, one large avocado and some veggies. I thought it was the worst taco I ever had... More

What a great place. A friend recommended this to me and I'm so glad. Our server, Jerome, was awesome. The food was superb. We tried a drink not on the menu called the Dilemma, and oh my goodness was it tasty. I wouldn't recommend more than two unless you're trying to have a 'great' night out. I will definitely return.

Stopped in here for a quick bite while in Dallas. I tried a couple different tacos. The carne asada and the al Pastore were both good. I had a margarita which was tasty.

Taco Diner has great food and friendly staff. I normally get the chicken tacos with pineapple. My husband gets the short rib tacos and they are great. Beware of the Mambo Taxi drink, it tastes fruity and smooth. It is delicious, but is very very strong. I would NEVER recommend getting more than one. The chips and queso are just... More
