“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

I just had what could possibly be the worst meal of my life here. I am not a fussy eater by any stretch of the imagination. But this place was completely horrible. The place was almost unbearably hot, the waitress just lung our food at us and the tacos tasted like they been assembled from the compost. Montpelier is full of wonderful places to eat - don't waste your time or money here.

“Too much fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

On a quick trip though VT, we needed lunch in a big way.
A friend in the area recommended Mad Taco.
We're from the Pacific northwest and we take our fish tacos seriously!
The staff was fun,energetic and helpful.
Just what we needed!

Delicious food, generous portions, prices typical of the area. Very convenient to Vermont College and downtown shopping.

“Over Priced Muck”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Not much to recommend here. The food is way underseasoned and tasteless and what the heck is with all the cilantro? I've eaten at the MT twice and both times have had a meal that was best forgotten and incredibly expensive for bad tacos. THe best thing that can be said about it is that its better than Julios.

“Mad taco? More like sick taco..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

First let me say the positives, it was clean and the atmosphere and staff were very friendly.

However, I ordered the burrito and was severely disappointed when they informed me it was 14 dollars for a burrito and a small bottle drink. The burrito was a decent size, but the taste was something I could not have been more displeased by..

The meat and "sauce" was that of a beef stew or roast taste. It was unlike anything I have ever ate or tasted. I did not finish and will never be back to the "mad taco"

I was with a companion who was unhappy with the tacos he ordered and ended up getting sick that evening..yuck

I really do not recommend this place
