I loved it. Hector, my server, was friendly and attentive. My chicken burrito bowl was perfect to the last bite. Nachos were hot and fresh, salsa was incredible and the salsa verde just hit enough. I'll be back next time I'm in town.

I previously posted of a not so pleasant experience. The owner contacted me. He asked us to try again and gave us a gift card so that we had nothing to lose. Everyone can have a bad day so fair is fair. Well, Mildred was our server and she was excellent. It was only her third shift and she was... More

Mike, usually I appreciate customer feedback and input. However, you are completely wrong and out of line. We buy, cook, and serve the freshest and best seafood. I inspected your shrimp and it was not raw or purple as you claim. I really think you came into my restaurant with the objective to get a free meal and cause a... More

The interior of the restaurant is nice and you can opt to sit outside. We stayed inside. Every employee greets you and is friendly. The food arrived as described and hot. It was a good value for the price, but nothing special. Although the waiter was friendly, he did not check on us as often as he should have and... More

We like this second to Acapulco's in Stratford. Good fajitas Salsa is a little bit pinchy, but good if you like it hot.

Did you go someplace that you've been and it just doesn't feel right? Well tonight Taco Loco had that feeling. We were seated and we waited about 20 minutes before someone even asked if we wanted a drink. So we got up and left. As we were leaving I saw the owner who I've met before and said they really...

Had the opportunity to dine at Taco Loco recently. The food selections were plentiful. We ordered a variety of entrees. They were very fresh with lots of flavor. The portions are generous. There is indoor and outdoor seating. It can be noisy outside due to the fact that the restaurant is on a busy street. The service was adequate. Servers... More

Taco Loco used to be good . The service was horrible. The waitstaff was nonexistent. Ordered shrimp tacos . They where the smallest portion I have ever seen. Extremely bland . Only flavor was the lime I squeezed on them . So sad it used to be good.

We have been a fan for 20+ years - love the relaxed ambiance and patio when open for outside dining. The margaritas and mojitos are the best - although we miss the former prettier margarita glasses which were replaced with low ball glasses. Menu keeps changing - were surprised some of our faves were missing - but still love the... More

The food is always made with fresh ingredients that are truly flavorful. Their drink specials are always the highlight of my visit as well as the great service.
