Seems like Food and Atmosphere Going Downhill

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... read 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

I had one of the best salads that I have ever had at a Mexican spot. It was healthy, fresh and well presented. The portions and overall choices here tend towards the healthy and not the classic.

My husband had been here several time for business and wanted to share this treasurer with me when visiting Dallas for the first time. The sangria was refreshing and the food was fresh. The decor was upscale for a diner. we would definitely go back.

Taco Diner (not Diner Taco as listed in TripAdvisor), has been a favorite of ours since it opened about 10 years ago. Manuel the manager treats you right and the food is very good. Watch out for the margaritas - they are strong!

This place is great. It is very casual, yet the food is fresh and the service is great. The Arnold Palmer is very good and so are the margaritas. The chips and two types of sauce are a great prelude to the meal. I have always ordered the chicken tacos, but my husband and children have tried the queso, the... More
