“Suiza Enchilada Goodness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

I was craving Mexican food and ended up going to Taco Rico today. I used to go there years ago but hadn't been back in at least 4 years. We ordered the Suiza Enchilada with green salsa (chicken), which is still very good and it's served with mexican rice and beans. And we also ordered the 3 Taco Platter (soft tacos with beef) served with Mexican rice and beans. The draft Dos Equis is only $2.99! Everything was very fresh, tasty and inexpensive. You will find a lot of UM students and locals in the place, don't expect nice decor but do expect freshness. Their salsas are amazing, try them all! You order and pay at the counter, and they bring your food to the table, it is cooked to order.

“GREAT Chips and salsa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012 via mobile

Taco Rico has great chips and salsas. When I mean salsas I mean they 8 different sauces for any pallet. They sauces range from mild to very hot. Which one is better I enjoyed them all. The ground beef tacos are excellent, the strip beef they are okay, chicken tacos very good.
The enchiladas were excellent, the service was good and prompt and all the food we ate was well priced

“Where Has This Gem Been Hiding???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Ate here ate the recommendation of our shuttle bus driver. This was the first meal we had upon landing and OMG did it ever deserve to be the first!
The restaurant doesn't look like much but lemme tell you: go in and order yourself a taco, burrito, enchilada...something! Out of our party of 4, everyone enjoyed their meal. Nothing but praises over here :)

“Unexpectedly Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

I've driven past many times but finally stopped because I had a coupon in a local coupon book and I'm glad I did. The place is not very nice but seems sufficient for its seating needs. The food was great, fresh and very flavorful. The prices are very good too. Definitely on my keeper list.

“Long Line, Lots of Locals Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

Passed by this restaurant several times and always saw a line of people (especially young people). Decided to try it since it seemed popular with the locals. Food was very good and servings were very large. Limited indoor seating, some outdoor seating that seemed popular.
