Huge servings, homemade sauces, friendly and delicious

Mad Taco where I want to go to have a local sourced taco or burrito that is yummy from the first bite. You get to self serve your choices of hot sauces that they make. There is a chalk board explaining the number on the container, what it is, and the heat index. So much fun. Vegans, vegetarians... read more

First of all food was amazing! They have a nice selection of smoked pork as well as other meats for tacos tostadas and whatever else! The pork bello tacos were amazing! What makes the trip even better was being able to drink Heady topper with my meal! It's an amazing beer that complements the food well! A must stop!

Mad Taco is just that - mad, quirky and awesome! Wonderful staff and amazing food, veg/vegan friendly as well. The tiny bar inside was the highlight, great collection of spirits and local brews. This is not a restaurant, its an experience :)

We have traveled in the U.S. Southwest and have found GREAT burrito places in several states there. While visiting family in Granville, Vermont, we ate dinner at The Mad Taco in Waitsfield (Vt). My sister had been raving about the food, and our visit proved her right! We found the burrito with carnitas and the fish tacos to be THE... More

The fish tacos were great, as were the enchiladas. Great beer selection. Margarita was a little lacking (too sweet/not mixed well). Loud bar area. A bit of a longer wait than one would expect, but worth it because the food was so good!

This is a nice fish taco with fresh Cilantro and Lime and good slaw! It is a nice local spot to have a beer, meet a friend after biking or skiing, or bring your family and sit at the picnic tables. It is ultra casual. Painting clothes and yard work clothes allowed.

Not a Mexican restaurant. All four of our meals were delicious! This is not your typical restaurant. Order your food at the counter to go or eat there and they will bring it out to you. I got the Cubano. A pork sandwich with pickles and cheese and special mayo. It came paninni style. The pork was soo tender and... More

$58 for 2 adults and 2 kids is pricey. Especially when the burrito feel apart b/c it wasn't wrapped right and my daughter's order was entirely wrong. We ordered 2 beers and go 10 oz glasses and minutes later others walked out with pint glasses for their beers? Food was ok, but not the best. Wouldn't go again, disappointed.

The Mad Taco has an easy-going, homegrown dive vibe going; it's a drop in, eat and go place rather than a dining restaurant. Delicious food. Did I say delicious? Double that. Plus a nice selection of housemade hot -- and very hot -- sauces. Kids had basic quesadillas; I savored the fish taco washed down with a VT brew hard... More
