I've never been disappointed at any of the area Taco Casa locations that I've been to. They have a decent variety of options on their menu to choose from. It's usually messe nachos and a chicken soft taco for me.

Taco case is the most awesome thing ever! I love the beefy nachos, enchiladas, messy nachos, and you cannot beat their tacos! Love!

I have tried several of the locations around town because people that are from Tuscaloosa thinks it is good. My experience is you pay a lot of money for small portions that are bland at best. At worse you walk away with Montezuma's revenge which has happened to me 2 times from 2 separate locations. Save your money and go... More

The food here was fantastic! It's really cheap and doesn't take too long to make it. It's definitely 10 levels above Taco Bell (which I find disgusting). Fairfax, Virginia needs to acquire one.

This place has good food but the items are so small it casts a fortune to get full or to take the whole family. If you aren't on a budget its a good place to eat

Pros: - The menu has an okay selection, though it's not well structured for ordering a sufficient meal. Most things are just a la carte. Cons: - The food was below average. I'd take a Taco Bell over this place as far as quality of food, and I'm not a Taco Bell fan by any means. - The service was... More

I lived off Taco Casa food when I was a student at the University of Alabama. I always visit every time I go to Tuscaloosa. My family hates it but I love it!

Wonderful tacos, enchiladas and taco salad and by all means, the sweet tea! Lots of T shirts and Alabama football items.

Well, first things first: I'm mexican and I don't have any problem with chain restaurants. I had to travel to Tuscaloosa for the first time so I didn't know the place. I had the chicken burrito with mild sauce and the nachos. Let me tell you that this is not mexican food, first because the burrito sauce was not natural... More

Absolutely amazing!! We love taco casa! Got hooked in college. Can't pass through Tuscaloosa or Bham without stopping in. It's amazing. I do realize you have to love it to love it! And if you don't "get it" and want to compare it to Taco Bell. MOVE ON! More for me!

Thank Jenna S
