This has been an old family favorite for years. It's a true Mexican slop shop with pretty good Mexican food. Big menu with lots of favorites and at a reasonable price. Good for the whole family.

Taco Shop offers an excellent menu with lots of options. The burritos are huge and they offer regular burritos as well as breakfast burritos. The breakfast burritos include eggs, cheese, potatoes, meat and salsa. One burrito makes a meal that will keep you going for a few hours. There are a lot of other items on the menu, so it... More

Took my cousins from New Hampshire here and they were impressed at the quality and quantity of the food. My favorites are the rolled tacos (a bargain!) and the chicken torta. Our daughter favors the burritos-no matter which kind, they are all good. The hot sauces are labeled so you can't go wrong with burning your mouth on the hottest... More

We eat here alot, and the food is great. Tried other shops in Alpine and always end up back here, so learned our lesson, no other shop for us.

Alpine Taco Shop offers a great menu with fair prices. The 5 rolled tacos with guacamole and cheese is a particular favorite. Our grandson loves the Chimichanga with rice and bean. I prefer the carne asada burrito or the quesadilla supreme. The tiny restaurant is often very busy with customers demonstrating their popularity.

I have heard good things about this Taco shop but had never stopped by. Today I was in the area and gave it a try. The building seems a little run down and may cause some people not to stop. The inside could use some cleaning up too. There were several people ahead of me waiting on their orders and... More
