“Mexican isn't supposed to be tasteless”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

A previous review described the place as a great little dive. Take out the word great and that describes it perfectly. The restaurant itself is in great need of an update. There are inside booths or outside tables for smoking. I ordered the Supreme Quesadilla with chicken. The chicken was absolutely tasteless. Looked like it was the shredded chicken from a can. Even if it wasn't, it still lacked any flavor whatsoever. My dining partner ordered Combo #4, Beef taco and Cheese Enchilada. The taco was OK, the enchilada was tasteless. The salsa you get with your meal had a very distinct tomato paste taste to it. Not at all enjoyable. The guacamole is guac mixed with (possibly) sour cream--different. We'd heard good things about Taco City and had to try it for ourselves. Sadly, we won't be back...

“Below average food and service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Food quality not up to par. Better Mexican alternatives available with better surrounding and service.

“Not tex-mex but ok. Cold beer for $1 off from 3-5.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

Not tex-mex but ok for the money. Cold beer for $1 off from 3-5. Veggie tostados were good but beans were heavy. Cheese dip was just ok. Chips were great. Owner was very nice and friendly.

Not much more to say, it's excellent. Has that dive bar feel, with a HUGE following. EVERYONE loves this place. If you want a taco, go here.

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

If you are in Cocoa Beach and in the mood for some great casual Tex-Mex, go to Taco City.
I'm a fan of Tex-Mex and a resident of Cocoa Beach so I've pretty much tried all the local Tex-Mex. Taco City is the best of all of them and not just because their food is better... The owner is a dynamic, positive person and it's rubbed off on the staff. They seem to enjoy what they do and they surely do it well.
