I chose the Cheese Enchilada plate for a quick lunch while running a couple of errands at lunch. I was NOT disappointed! Helen and Archie, the owners, are fabulous and Helen sent me back to my office with some tasty sopapillos, which I shared with my friends at the office. I beat the rush by getting there about 12:45 pm... More

It was a disappointment from my first visit several years ago when I was taken there by a local businessman. I couldn’t wait to take my wife when we were there is summer. I could have waited because waiting was the theme of the morning. No one seemed to notice that we were waiting to be seated and we finally... More

this place gives bad mexican restaurants a bad name if you can believe that! Their puffy tacos are not even TACOS! they are fried flatbread, not masa. Yuck. If you care about good food served fast by a competent staff, keep moving on down the street, Holmes - this place is NOT for you. I will literally NEVER recommend this... More

My wife and I came in on a Saturday afternoon and they weren't too busy. We were told where to sit but given no menus. We waited patiently for them to bring menus, chips/salsa, something for quite some time (try 10 minutes). Finally we asked the man working the cash register who our server was and notifying him that we... More

So that crazy white haired wanna-b chef has been here and left a poster on the wall...so I was a little disappointed to start. Had lunch there my first time and it was just ok, had salsa verde enchiladas with chicken...they had a good portion of chicken but the salsa verde was a bit bland. The flour tortillas are fresh...

We went to Taco Taco Café because it had been so well-reviewed. We stood in line outside for about 20 minutes in the drizzle, thinking it had to be worth the wait...but nope, it was not. The food was average at best, but then I found a ton of eggshells in my scrambled eggs! I don't mean a couple of... More

I want to say the breakfast tacos are great and the coffee is out of this world! However, I am a San Antonio native and had never come across an establishment that cannot accommodate a customer on what they're asking for. It was a simple request, one I honestly was only going to ask for once, and yes I had... More

I was in the neighborhood and heard raves about the "Puffy Tacos." There's usually a line to get in, small dining area and not much parking. The service is friendly and good. I ordered the Puffy Taco and also 2 Beef Enchiladas. The Puffy Taco was tasty but messy (split out the bottom). The Enchiladas were really better. Maybe its... More

This past Saturday my wife and I felt nostalgic and visited an old friend...taco taco restaurant. My how things have changed! First of all, asada tacos are not served during morning hours...???Ok, we understand.. Maybe the asada cook doesn't come in until noon.
