Great Food, Fun atmosphere

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... read more

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.

Stay away. The fish tacos are a disgrace. The mojito tastes like sprite and service isn't great. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

Taco Diner is a great place to enjoy breakfast any day, but especially on a nice Dallas Sunday morning. You can sit inside or out and enjoy an interesting menu of Mexican food at a reasonable price.

After living in Spain for 8 months - I couldn't wait to get back to Dallas for some authentic Mexican food. What a let down. Had had very good experience here in 2012 and 2013 but now.... My tacos al pastor seemed to have extra grizzle and didn't pass the taste test. The music was extremely too loud - guess... More

We were looking for a spot to eat breakfast after a very disappointing breakfast the day before. We drove by but didn't think of stopping at a taco spot for breakfast until we saw the pancakes and different breakfast items. I have to say, it was a great decision. Our server was outstanding, he brought us 5 different types of... More

This Taco Diner is in a Great Location in the heart of West Village (Dallas Uptown). It is a very "hip" section for the young crowd. On the weekend, it is very crowed, but there is room at the bar for a leisurely drink. Unfortunately, it is very loud and is not good for casual conversation, but the people watching... More

Came to this place on a food tour and the tacos were amazing. Especially the fried avocado taco and the chicken taco was delicious as well.

Watched World Cup and had some great tacos and nachos. In the trendy part of town, the prices were very reasonable. Went through two bowls of salsa while a pair of Ferraris drove past. Great Margaritas.

I know it is a well know Mexican food diner, and I have been there several times for that. But last night I was just not feeling the Mexican food so I went the Burger Route. It is kinda an under the radar thing to know to order the burger. I had not until now and it was very very... More
