If you've never been here before, you will be shocked and... read more

My daughter and I decided to stop in one afternoon/early evening to try this out. The food was OK. Nothing to brag about. the staff were very nice and timely with service, but this place could use a remodel. It just seems dirty and we weren't interested in going back.

We get seated and the place looks old and run down! We order our drinks and it takes about 25 minutes to just get our drinks! Then we ordered our food and it took a good 45 to an hour to get our food. And it was nothing too complicated. The food itself tasted fairly good. We were put under... More

This place has great Taco's and the chip and spicy salas is the best in town. Staff is friendly and the drinks are so good you'll need a cab when you leave !!!

I love going here. The staff makes an effort to learn the names of repeat customers and are very friendly. The food is very satisfying, with great flavor (especially the charro beans- - yum) and the prices are fantastic.

We have been eating at Taco Rico for about 18 years, and the food never disappoints ! It is just good Mexican style cooking. I have tried most things on the menu, and have never been disappointed. The 4 types of salsa are exceptional. They range from very mild, moderate, cilantro (very hot) and green. We love them all. They... More
