“GREAT PLACE TO EAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Four of us recently ate here in December 2012 for 3 days in a row. I think we tried every item on the Breakfast menu and every item was a winner. According to one of the group, he felt the Breakfast Burrito was the big winner, however others in the group thought maybe it was the French toast, or wait, was it the Breakfast Pizza. Needless to say, we all enjoyed our breakfast, the coffee is great, service is good, and the place has a nice atmosphere. The Breakfast Special changes every day, and they have one of those digital photo albums by the cash register which shows the daily special. If you don't see it, make sure that you ask. For $3 it is a good deal.

great place for a quick breakfast. the food was delicious (I had the pancakes and my husband had the gallo pinto with eggs), the waitress was very friendly and helpful and we sat outside, just under a big old tree. really nice way to start the day!

“Taco bar done right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

My meal started with great friendly service and more importantly with great suggestions in the vast menu! I ordered the 3 taco combo. The first was a shrimp in coconut sauce taco, the shrimp was kind of small but the sauce was spectacular. The second taco was a Tuna spicy cooked right! Finally I saved the best for last Fried dorado cooked to perfection in an amazing batter. The portion was 3 large pieces of fresh fish! I washed this great meal with a ginger mint lemonade because they don't offer beer! I had several visits to the salad bar and loved the sides and all the fresh greens oh an the variety of sauces was a plus! My friend got the burrito and he said it was amazing and it was huge! Great location and awesome design, Great restaurant overall!

“Great Atmosphere. Good food reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I vsisted this place with some friends and have been back at least a 1/2 dozen times. nice little niche restaurant offering pretty much any kind of taco you could want. I hear from friend that breakfasts are really good and really cheap. The ironic thing is this place does not serve alcohol. Pretty funny since it has a"Bar" in its name. Also, the first time after hearing about it, i was expecting some kind of dive, i was very very pleasantly surprised

“Great atmosphere and pleasently decorated bars that doesnt match the poor service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

Me and my friend showed up at the place without beign welcomed found a seat on our own. Then a while later we were told to go order at the cashier were the cashier girl looked like she was also the weitress there. Obviously theyre well under staffed. We recieved our order then i asked for some ranch which i found out they didnt have for the salad when i asked for it the second time. Real poor service but the swings at the bars and the stars on the floor were attractive.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry to hear your Tacobar experience wasn't 100% positive. We do have a sign indicating that ordering is to be done with the cashier which you may have missed. We will look into making it more visible. We hope you will give us another try. Kind regards, The Tacobar Team.
