Food is nice quick and not greasy. Taco Tuesdays are great for anyone on a budget. upper chicken burrito is a great healthy filling choice

The food is decent but it is definitely overpriced and the portion sizes are relatively small. If you are looking for a good deal or great value, do NOT go to Taco Time in Thunder Bay.

Ate at Taco Time for the first time in my life. Was very surprised how good the food was. Had taco salad with chicken on more than one occasion and it was good every time. Inexpensive, clean and good food.

I usually make one stop here when I visit Thunder Bay. Usually it's pretty good with little to complain about. This time the soft taco meat was almost cold. It still tasted good and in the past it's always been warm, and customer service was so so... hoping it's not going to start slipping. I'll still be back.

I was looking for a quick snack, so I decided to hit up this Taco Time. I haven't had Taco Time in probably about 5 years if not more (last time I was in Calgary), so I though it would be nice to revisit their food. Mistake. As my title says, the customer service was great. I was greeted warmly... More

I usually go every 6 months for a soft taco or two. I ordered a side of mexi fries. The girl gave and charged me for two orders. I said, ya, whatever and went to get some hot sauce for my soft taco. I tried a mexifry and it was as cold as ice. I brought them up to the... More

Taco time was average but a great quick fix for a hungry man. Reminds me of taco johns where I'm from but seems as if they use better ingredients so you get a bit better flavor. Being from an area filled with great Mexican restaurants I can't think of a fast food joint I can give more than 3*. Good... More

Swore id never eat at Taco time again after 1 of the most disgusting meals of my life in Calgary AB.. Started dating a chick from Tbay and apparently this city has a deep love of the Time, I was persuaded to try it again. This time my meal was prepared artisticly with love and was absolutely prymo. This location... More

If you are into an alternative, Taco Time is a great alternative. The counter staff are not the most helpful in making choices but the food is good. When I went to give me tray back, instead of taking my tray, I was instructed to deposit it on my way out. I think they should have accepted it at the... More
