Good

The restaurant was clean and the food was good. The salsa bar was kept clean and the salsa was great. I had fajita tacos with charro beens and rice. It was all very good. I am always surprised at the quality of food at Taco Cabana.

Can't even get a hot sauce order right much less your food they don't care to refund your money because they don't give a crap how many times you drive back there. Don't leave without receipt.

We visit TC locations for a quick meal when were on the road and food is usually good for fast food but we found this location to be very slow, food was not up to par and dining area was very dirty. We thought about asking for a refund and leaving before food came out but stuck it out since... More

I brought 3 of my male co-workers here today and we were very happy with our meals. All 4 meals for less than $30 and very yummy. Nice and clean and great service. I can't understand the bad reviews - it was just perfect. This group eats out alot here in San Marcos and this is one of our favorites.... More

Pros: -Open until late at night -Big portions Cons: -Cold staff with a tendency of not being friendly. -Food is not Mexican but Tex-Mex so the favors change a bit. We wanted to have some Mexican food so we ended up here. They do serve the typical fried beans and rice plus your fajitas, tacos or enchiladas. However, the flavor... More

It's a good place to eat but it is very loud and they just slop the food together and your portions are small. But it's good food I guess there's better taco cabanas out there

Tacos were really small and food made me sick. Workers were offish and rude. Nothing like other Taco Cabanas I've been to.

There is a variety of choices, from small tastes to big-pig proportions. The codiments bar offers a few nice choices, but when a large number of customers have taken items from it, it is often not as well kept as should be (because some inconsiderate patrons reach across rather than going to the other side, and stuff falls into the...

I always go inside to get the little plastic containers of their pico de gallo, green/red salsa, jalepenos, etc. These are on a buffet where you can help yourself while the food is being prepared. Great food choices and really good food for a fast-food joint! Breakfast tacos are muy bueno - especially the barbacoa.
