Passing through and stopped in for bite with wife and kids. I had a burrito with pulled pork, cilantro and guac and pico (I really liked it). Wife liked fish tacos and kids liked their meals. Not a typical taco/Mexican stop. I would eat here again.

I just had what could possibly be the worst meal of my life here. I am not a fussy eater by any stretch of the imagination. But this place was completely horrible. The place was almost unbearably hot, the waitress just lung our food at us and the tacos tasted like they been assembled from the compost. Montpelier is full... More

On a quick trip though VT, we needed lunch in a big way. A friend in the area recommended Mad Taco. We're from the Pacific northwest and we take our fish tacos seriously! The staff was fun,energetic and helpful. Just what we needed!

Stopped in after an exam at the Office of Professional Regs. I got straight up carnita tacos with crema, queso, and a healthy serving of fresh cilantro! Baaaam, they had Heady Topper to wash it down! Thanks guys :)

Delicious food, generous portions, prices typical of the area. Very convenient to Vermont College and downtown shopping.

Not much to recommend here. The food is way underseasoned and tasteless and what the heck is with all the cilantro? I've eaten at the MT twice and both times have had a meal that was best forgotten and incredibly expensive for bad tacos. THe best thing that can be said about it is that its better than Julios.

First let me say the positives, it was clean and the atmosphere and staff were very friendly. However, I ordered the burrito and was severely disappointed when they informed me it was 14 dollars for a burrito and a small bottle drink. The burrito was a decent size, but the taste was something I could not have been more displeased... More

This little spot right on the main drag in Montpelier may have the largest selection of really hot sauces I have ever found in a taco place. Food was average, and the price was high. Over $25 for a taco salad and a carnitas taco is a bit stiff. And the taco salad was vegetarian--another two dollars it you wanted... More

First time today based on a friend's recommendation. It was fantastic. The homemade lemonade is worth the trip alone. The tacos are a good size, so one order was plenty for lunch. The refried beans were also good - plus plenty of hot sauces to try.

I stopped here before an early dinner. They have great selection of food and options for a quick service place. The place was kind of divey to me but overall it had a good vibe and fresh food. For Montpelier, it suffices really well if you want something inexpensive, quick and tasty. I did like all the sauce options they... More
