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

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.

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
