This cash-only little restaurant in a strip mall is nothing fancy but serves first-rate New Mexican food. The little sopapillas are wonderful.

Good New Mexican food in a strip mall on San Antonio. Prices are competitive and the food is very good. Portions are plenty. Good, fairly quick place for lunch in comfort.

Taco Shel still has the best fresh authentic New Mexican food in Albuquerque. It's family owned and family operated and when you dine there, you become family. The red and green chile is wonderful and the portions are just right. Truly homemade with love!! The takeout service and food is great too.

My family has been dining at Taco Shel for years. It is one of those places where the locals eat. I decided to write this review since it is balloon fiesta time in Albuquerque. This restuarant is small- nothing fancy. BUT the food is always good and the service is always good. Teresa, the owner, is as nice as could... More

The food in the best homemade Mexican food in ALBUQUERQUE. We are regulars and feel like family. The food portions are just right and fresh. The flavors are truly New Mexican. The service is the best you will ever get. Try the takeout too!!

The food is good but I have a huge pet peeve of restaurants that only accept cash especially if they have been around for several years. But if you have cash in your pocket it's worth a try.

Small, quaint, cash only restaurant. Monday- Friday for lunch and dinner. You won't find any chicken here, but you will find the best beef enchiladas, red chile to die for, and the fluffiest sopapillas ever ! A fantastic value and the best service too. The kids loved the tacos, and the lollipop jar that was brought to the table afterward.

Local, family owned and run restaurant. The service was great an the food was very good as well. My only complaint was that it was kind of spicy for me. Also beware that it is cash only!

My wife and I have been eating at Taco Shel for more than ten years. The Ambiance is fantastic, the wait staff is fantastic, and the food is deliciously fantastic. I always order the Beef Burrito Platter, because it is sooooooooooo delicious. Their red chili is out of this world. The owner, Theresa, always comes around to our table to... More

Always a smile and a hot meal. One of the last places that makes you feel like a member of the family, and the food is always great quality. Just remember to bring cash.
