“Taco Nirvana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

I can see why the Taco Bells close early here - for late night emergency meals, this is the place to go. And, believe it or not, tasty tacos in the daytime hours as well. This spot is super popular for a reason, and for once, I agree with the locals.

“THE REAL TACO DEAL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Don't confuse Nico's (all locations) in Tucson with any kind of healthy or philosophical hospitality. It's a taco house. Nico's tacos are legendary. Their supreme plate is borderline legal. Great portions. Great variety. Give a shot to Nico's and see what the folks in the barrio eat every day.

“Best Breakfast Burritos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The breakfast burritos are incredible. Large in size but small in price. With or without eggs and plenty of salsa available. Quick friendly service.

“best chimichanga under $6”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Always a great chicken chimi. Big, with lots of chicken. And you can get stuff from their salad bar, cucumbers, salsa, etc., in the true Mexican style. Can be the core of dinner for two; just cut in half, add beer and a little more salad maybe.
