I tried several mexican restaurants, but I love Fajitas from Taco Rico. It's a small and casual restaurant but the service and price is decent. Tacos, chimichangas, and salads are really good. I also like the chips and salsa.

About as close to Texas Tex Mex that you will get in South Florida. The food is reasonable and I find dependable. I am never disappointed. Make sure your burrito is severed wet. Good salads and plenty of iced tea. This is a dive and not a fancy place.

We really enjoy the food, service, and convenience of this fast-casual restaurant. From the simple Monday tacos specials to more elaborate and hearty Mexican fare, this place is fun and good value.

This was the place to go for years for the best beef burrito in town. Not anymore. Beef is small dried up pieces with no flavor at all. Sad because their burrito's were awesome in the past.

My guess is that this place got high reviews because it is very cheap. There were four of us and we managed to have a meal for under $40. However, the food was not that great. The tortilla soup tasted as if from a can. The burrito was OK and so were the tacos. This was not great food. We... More

While not being a Mexican food fanatic, I nevertheless recognize good Tex-Mex when I see it and eat it. I was invited to Taco Rico but wasn't excited at the prospect. I found it to be a hole in the wall kind of place at a non descript storefront. I immediately knew this was the real deal from the Bentley... More

Taco Rico Tex Mex Cafe and Gaudalajara's down the highway are the two best Tex Mex/Mex Mex restaurants I found in Miami ..I'm sure there are a few others undiscovered by me but these two are good enough. Taco Rico is small with only a half dozen or so tables and a lot of the business is take away. You... More

Small hole in the wall with great food ......never had anything that wasn't good. My current fave is the green chicken , but the tacos are always a good choice. Whenever I'm in this area I stop in. Parking is tight but there is a Starbucks next door.

Great Burritos at very reasonable prices; eat in or take out. Flavor exceeds your expectations and very reasonably priced for the large portion.
