“Taco Bar Terrific”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The Taco Bar located at 10003 Fields Road, Gathersburg, MD is a hidden treat for those willing to find it. Located in at a convience store/gas station/liquor store, the food here is authentic, good and cheap. The menu is extensive and much like those found at locals only taco joints in San Antonio, TX. Especially good is the Pastor or grilled marinated pork; the Chorizo, and the Bistec or grilled steak. When your order comes, help yourself to the fixin's on a nearby table. You can get side orders of beans, rice, guacamole which are very good. You get a nice portion of guacamole, not that little dab most places add to your plate as an afterthought. Want a full meal deal, go for the Carne Asada, steak with onions, beans rice, salad and five corn tortillas. I've eaten Mex everywhere, including Mexico and this stuff is the real deal, good and cheap.

“!Que Rico!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This place is unassuming and delicious. Everything is prepared fresh, to order. My favorite is the "pastor" taco - pork with pineapple on two tortillas, that actually makes 2 tacos and with the addition of some goodies from the salsa / condiments bar makes a meal on its own. We've also tried and like the nachos and the torta Mexicana.

“Good Mexican food for people who appreciate real Mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The title says it all. It's hidden by an Express gas station in a wine/beer shop but the food is plentiful and tasty. There are a few tables and chairs for people to sit down and eat but most people picked up a 6 pack and tacos to go. Everyone seemed to be ordering tacos, mostly the chicken but al pastor is tasty too. Prices are a lot more than you would expect say if you came from California and went to the neighborhood taco joint but for the DC area it's cheap. I'll be back.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food, this is the place to go! The prices are great and the food is always fresh! The place is small, but cozy. Certainly a place to visit!

“Surprisingly good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This place is actually great! Kind of hidden inside of a gas station/convenience store, so I overlooked this place for years until a friend mentioned how great it was so I gave it a whirl and the food is Wonderful, prices are very good, and the service is fast, albeit not particularly friendly.
Highly recommend checking this place out!
