We wanted Mexican food. I checked trip advisor and found good reviews for this place. The rice was dry. The chicken in all of our meals was unflavorful. It tasted like rotisserie chicken with no seasoning or peppers or onions or anything like what you expect Mexican food it taste like. The service was good however. When we left I... More

Ate lunch here with 3 others. I had #15 ground beef enchiladas with rice and beans with red sauce. My husband had a chicken fajita taco, another had #17 burrito, and lastly fajita lunch special. The chips and salsa are great. Also ordered small queso which was excellent but would need bigger size if others want to share. Everyone else... More

Fast service with great specials. I come often for early dinner to take advantage of their happy hour and quick delivery. The server always check back and workers friendly. The amount of food for the price and speed has been fair every time. It's your average Mexican food fare, but worth the drive for Tuscaloosa.

This was some of the quickest Mexican food to ever come out. Everything was made fresh and tasted delicious! Enchiladas are the way to go!!

We stop in each time we can. Being from Texas I eat a lot of Mexican food and I accept that away from home I am going to be often disappointed. Los Tarascos is as good as it gets. Great service and greater food. very casual hole in the wall location. Perfect.

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the best food is usually served in places like this. I had a shredded beef chimichanga and it was absolutely delicious, service was great and food served quickly. Would definitely recommend if you're passing by or even have to make the drive for it.
