I REALLY wanted to like this place as I LOVE a good taco. But these were just not good. They were bland and about 50% overpriced. I am not sure that anyone in my group of 4 liked anything that they ate. Place it took a long time to get our food making the disappointment even more palpable. Staff was... More

Thought it was a good idea after class. Food wasn't good and the service was very slow. 3-4 hrs later I started throwing up and had diarrhea. Worst experience ever and never going back. Worst 21$ I have ever spent.

Mad Taco is a glorified burrito/taco establishment in montpelier. At a first glance it seems really nice. But then you dine here a few times and realize all they really have going for them is their incredible lack of customer service and consistently unorganized staff. After this last dining experience I will never return. We walked in before a large... More

The place is trying to be lose and hip with beer served in recycled glass jars and a lot of handwritten posters and it apparently has it's customer base because every time I was walking by, I saw it was fairly busy. But the food is really not that good. I ordered fish tacos. The fish didn't taste that fresh.... More

Yummy tacos- everything here is good, and the hot sauce selection is worth a visit all by itself! Prices are a bit steep for 2 tacos, but they're stuffed- plenty of food for a relatively light meal! Local beer, often served in mason jars, and quick, friendly service. Check it out for lunch or a light dinner!

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.
