Best Mexican Food in the Kansas City Metro Area

We have eaten here at least 10 times since it opened. It's fun to see how popular it has become. For nearly a year they were struggling, even though the food has always been great. They stuck with it through the hard times and now it has really paid off for them. Today I went for lunch and dinner... read more

Great food but the servings were small. It also wasn't very clean. The floor was dirty. Tables were not wiped off. Bathrooms were really bad. I was disappointed.

It doesn't look that nice. But don't let that fool you. We had the chicken taco, queen taco, chicken enchilada, and a shrimp taco. All of them were very good. The guacamole was one of the best we have eaten! Everything was just excellent. The service was pretty good too!

Deep Fried Tacos, FLAVORFUL beef and chicken, great authenticity! Rice and Beans are really good too! very authentic. Can't wait to go back and try the enchilladas and more! Don't let the surroundings fool you. It is a CLEAN restaurant. Unfortunately not in the best area.

My family and I went out to dinner on a friday night to Queen Taco. We had bought a coupon through Groupon, so at a discounted price we felt safe taking a chance. We should not have worried. The food overall is excellent. My only complaint is the rice and beans are not very flavorful. The tacos, burritos and enchiladas... More

I have been here several times now and the food is amazing. The Street Tacos are the best! Just like south Texas only closer and they have a salsa bar with fresh homemade sauce. Very friendly folks here, Mom & Pop operation. Heres to the little man.
