“3.5 Stars - The Tacos are indeed Tasty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Go to Tasty Tacos for the soft tacos.

Don't go for the ambience (there isn't any, its kinda cafeteria-like)

Don't go for the service (you order and pick up at the counter)

Don't go for great, authentic Mexican food - this is not a place that pretends to be a top Mexican restaurant with an extensive Rick Bayless approved menu.

Don't go for cutting edge/new wave tacos (that's not what they do)

Go for the tacos. The wonderfully delicous tacos. And makes sure they fry the tacos fresh. I've had three tacos there (one steak and two chicken), only the third was made fresh and it was really, really good.

So to recap, when a place is called Tasty Tacos, you should expect tasty tacos. Nothing more. Nothing less. And that's exactly what you get.

“The Mosqueda family runs a great restaurant chain!”

everything is great at Tasty's! Flour tacos are well known, but the chilli and chips, enchiladas, nachos, and poppers are great too!

“BEST TACOS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Super good tacos, you can eat one of them for a meal. I don't ever buy any of the burritos or other items since the tacos are so good.
