Taco Medic is an amazing authentic taste! What a worthwhile off the beaten path find. I’m so glad we didn’t miss this little gem. And the open kitchen is so lovely to talk with the staff.

Authentic and tasty! Really great if you can’t eat gluten because the entire menu is GF. We had tacos and they were made with home made wraps, so good.

Delicious, innovative and authentic flavours in perfectly made tortillas. This place does a roaring trade and it’s popularity is well deserved! Huge bonus that everything is gluten free. :)

Walked by joking that there was no way tacos in NZ could be any good. We were completely wrong. Homemade tortillas, authentic sauces and tacos that tasted straight from Mexico City or San Diego. Awesome staff as well. Probably our favorite meal in Queenstown, recommended

Tasty taco experience and friendly helpful team members. Pulled beef definitely the bomb, whilst prawn was probably a bit underwhelming. Great option for a free taco if you sign up to the mailing list. Searle lane is a bit hidden but worth finding. With Joes...garage nearby (great coffee), Taco Medic is the perfect light casual lunch spot in Queenstown.More

A great place to get some food to take away and eat on the lakefront. Fab menu with some really nice options for vegetarians. I chose 3 different tacos - all were delicious and all quite different from one another.

Cheers for the honest review and for sticking with us from the start! Making food fresh to order can be a bit tricky with timing but it's always something we're working to nail so you can eat your epic tacos with your mates.

Searle lane taco medic always have friendly happy staff and serve delicious tacos, such a nice grab n go snack. Weirdly their store in Frankton have the same menu yet their tacos and food is terrible, like awful. They have such an awesome set up...yet its always empty with no atmosphere and honestly terrible food. Don't let that fool you though, if you want good taco medic tacos Searle lane in queenstown town is where to find good tacos.More

The chicken and vegan taco were very good, however the other meat tacos were average and were slightly dry with too much salad and slaw. They also didn’t offer many drinks. Nice for one or two tacos but wouldn’t recommend for a proper dinner meal!

Loved our dinner here. Staff were super knowledgeable about the menu, and had great recommendations. Loved being safe to eat here, it’s a gluten free heaven! Try the chicken tenders with chipotle mayo. Yum!

Loved the tacos, nachos and chips/dip here. Service was really good and the staff were so friendly. Really enjoyed our meal and would definitely recommend it! Everything gluten free which is always nice for the coeliacs.

Hi - yes, the hot bit is the sauce on the top, so you just don't put it on! Just tell the guys you don't like hot and you'll be good.
