Good food, friendly service

It is in the historic district so it's a nice break from walking through the shops. The food was good. The salsa was a little odd but overall we enjoyed the experience. The plantains were amazing as well as the cilantro rice and beans. I would definitely get them again.

Me and my friend drove around for hours trying to taste the legendary Virginia Peanut Soups. We got to this is place and it was worth it. The place is tiny. Nothing fancy. But the service was great and the good really good. Clean and friendly. And veeeeery affordable! Awesome!

On the recommendation of friends, we stopped at this small restaurant in the heart of downtown Fredericksburg, and we were treated by a very good meal. The salsa is home made and the corn chips are thin and crispy. Everything we ordered was quite good. This restaurant is quite small with take out as an option if you don't have... More

What a fun, casual place this is! The close quarters, lively chatter and terrific food take us back when we want a lift!

Love Soup and Taco! Grab a quick bite of rich, tasty authentic Latino food cooked just the way you like it. Hot or cold weather, carnivore or herbivore, there is something yummy here for you. One of my favorite places.

This was a spur of the moment decision, one that turned out to be very nice! The menu was right-sized for the restaurant. Anyone who watches Gordon Ramsey knows what I mean - that any item on the menu could conceivably be prepared fresh by the employees on hand. And, the items we ordered were very freshly prepared and very... More

I have been going to Soup and Taco on and off since they opened. The food flavor has seemed to vary through the years. The interior is small and gets a little congested when busy. Service is usually fine yet not too friendly. I do like the tacos.

We were traveling, and wanted a lighter meal with no leftovers. Soup and Taco fit the bill! Yum! The food was delicious. We weren't overly full, but definitely sufficient. And the price was reasonable. ***My friend wanted it noted that the atmosphere is cozy and cheerful***

stopped in about 15 minutes before closing, so i was glad they seated us - service was great - fish tacos tasted good but were a bit skimpy on the fish (2 small pieces in each taco, took 3 bites before i hit the fish - but it was good) - mango chicken salad was good, but i think they... More

Food and service used to be good. But the last 3 times we have been, the service was terrible and rude while the food has been barely edible. Seems like they lost their desire to be a good restaurant or appreciate their customers. We won't go back. Its happened too many times to just be an off night.
