In Seoul, On the Border, Julio, and Elpino323 are three famous Mexican restaurants. But for Chicken Enchilada con Mole Sauce, this place is the best. Because Elpino323 only provide Verde Sauce Enchilada. They don’t have Mole sauce anymore. The Enchilada chicken quality of Julio is...low. On the Border Enchilada with Ranchero sauce was also unsatisfiable. From now on I will only go to Taco Amigo to have Enchilada. Chicken Quesadilla was also good.More

As a Texan and one who loves proper Mexican food I can say this place is the real deal. This isn't TexMex or fastfood. This is authentic Mexican food with all the flavor you expect. Very reasonably priced and certainly different than what one is...accustomed to when travelling in Seoul. One of my favorite place in Itaewon.More

Last weekend I went to Itaewon but I made a mistake, I went too early and found out that most of the places open after 5 or p pm, I was on my way back to the subway station when I saw that Taco's was...open and decided to give them a try. Order some Guacamole and chips and it was good, real guacamole, then a chicken quesadilla and it was even better,.. yes I know but I wasn't in the mood for tacos or flautas or chimichangas. Started talking to one of the waitress and she is a girl from Venezuela who's going to college here in Korea, she spoke very good english. It was a good experience for a change from noodles or kimchi. Good service, good food and not expensive, not cheap but it's ok.More

This is the first time I go to a Mexico restaurant in Seoul. I try buroti with beef and chicken and I love this taste. They have some kinds of vegetable inside mix with the source like yaourt.

Took my daughter here for dinner. It was early and on a Tuesday night so it was very slow. The food was ok, nothing to get excited about. The restaurant was clean and the service was good for a slow night. I would repeat.

I enjoyed a double meat carnitas burrito here. They put a lot of sauce on it and I was satisfied with the amount of meat in it. I ordered the meal so rice, beans, and chips came with it although the servings of all three...were not that generous. With a coke, it was about ₩20,000.More

I wish this was not the first time I felt compelled to write a negative review for Taco Amigo. There aren't many vegetarian Mexican options for delivery and you guys have had the widest variety. This is the only reason we continued to order from...you despite numerous disappointments and inappropriate behaviour. However, today is the day you lost loyal customers. We ordered with shuttle delivery, and when looking at our order realized that half of the order was incorrect. Instead of apologizing and sending us the correct food, you made shuttle call us to ensure that we had not eaten the food we hadn't ordered (you seemed to think this was the way out of fixing the problem?) and then insisted that we send the order back (to resell? I hope not). When we asked if we could get a fresh order sent to us, as half our food was sitting here getting cold, you refused, saying that you did not make a mistake on that part of the order. How does this benefit you at all? This seems like it's out of spite. You made a mistake and we are the ones that have to wait an extra hour to get our food (and eat it cold) with no compensation at all. We will be sure to order somewhere else from now on and recommend other Mexican restaurants to all our friends and acquaintances. Honestly, what are you thinking? Such disregard for customer service is truly appalling.More

We went here for good burritos. The staff was kind and the fruity sparkling soda was nice. The food I don't remember the name were also nice. Would recommend!

It was a hot day, and I was glad for the place to be open at the odd hour of 1:30. Many places in Seoul close during non-meal hours. When I walked in, there was one other customer, and an hour later, all tables were...almost full. I was impressed with the menu selection. After much explanation, I ordered the chicken enchiladas and two steak tacos. I also ordered the mango margarita which was tasty and refreshing on a hot day. The food and drink came out in minutes, which seemed unusual. The enchiladas tasted good but not great. I liken the experience to eating health food instead of something more decadent or savory. The steak tacos contained a saucy beef -- something you would expect in carnitas, not tacos. Overall not bad tasting but also not what you would expect. I plan to visit again to try other menu items in hopes of getting something a little more authentic.More
