I ordered the spinach quesadilla and a side of rice and beans. I never got the side and the quesadilla was tasteless and so was the guacamole. The chips seemed more like crackers and the salsa was fat too hot for my tastes. I wouldn't go back.

Tried this with a couple of guys earlier today after finding it on Groupon. (By the way, just because it made Groupon doesn't mean it's good. I checked the reviews on TripAdvisor before buying the Groupon.) Like every other Mexican restaurant, they have enchiladas, burritos, etc. What I hadn't see before is the molcajete. A collection of meat, cactus leaf,... More

This is an average Mexican food restaurant. Salsa is good. Good drink menu. Service was good. I was not impressed with my steak tacos. They were very bland. My husbands shrimp tacos were fine and dressed out nicely.

I don't live in Brighton, but anytime I am in the neighborhood I am always sure to eat at Spicy Tacos. Amazing selection on their menu and the food is always to notch. Well worth checking out. Margaritas are delicious too!!

My husband and I have visited this restaurant twice in the past couple of months. Overall we were pretty happy with our visit. Their presentation of the food is great. I would describe the food as "americanized". We were happy with our visits however we probably won't be returning. We prefer more authentic mexican food that is spicier.

...and sooo glad I did. Food was really really good, restaurant was clean, service was fast, friendly and attentive. definitely a new go to spot for me when I'm visiting Brighton. Food tasted super fresh, not deep fried fat laden cheese smothered mystery dinners like at some spots. I'll be back again when I return to Brighton for Thanksgiving holiday... More

Even with a new name, the restaurant's food remains mild. The service was good and the food alright, our only complain is that the seasoning was very mild. Portions were generous. The restaurant is hard to find, being a good block off Route 85 and tucked in a corner of a small mall. The dining area is small and we... More
