Pretty standard Tex-Mex, friendly service, value price. Pretty uncomplicated, casual, and unfussy. Lots of Spanish speakers on staff if looking for espanol.

Have been looking for awhile for a great Mexican place. The food here is very good, the service is excellent. Atmosphere is just OK. But I really come here for the food. Very reasonably priced.

Fortunately for Taco de Oro a neighboring, more upscale, restaurant went out of business and Taco De Oro moved into a much nicer, larger, facility. The food is every... More
