Taco Diner has been expanded to twice its size with a very inviting atmosphere and environment. What’s better than this very clean restaurant is the expanded menu, great food and new ice cream parlor. The owner is hands-on and visits each table to make sure...all is good - it’s great! Try it, you’ll be hooked.More

Casual diner with authentic Mexican food. Combination enchilada plate was delicious! Scraped my plate.

The take out from Taco Diner is pretty decent. They recently remodeled and expanded with a Mexican ice cream/paleteria sharing the space next door. The traditional Mexican nachos are excellent as are any of the Mexican food like tacos, burritos, chile rellenos, tamales (pork and...chicken are awesome). There are a few disappointments lately though. The kitchen really needs to work out their operations. We called for a take out order of two enchilada dinners and two burritos (nothing too daunting) and the nice lady taking our order said "about 25 minutes". On timely arrival, our total wait time was 1 hour and the food was cold and limp when we got it home which was five minutes away. Another patron waiting at the take out window simply had to leave as he was waiting so long and they had other commitments. This wasn't the first time we waited a long time for simple tacos before a movie across the street. We did appreciate the complimentary warm chips&salsa and fast service on drinks when dining in that evening. We would give this five stars except the kitchen line really needs to be more efficient and keep up with the orders. This popular place will lose loyal customers if something simple like enchiladas, burritos and sides of rice and beans take an hour. Missing from the menu is dark, Oaxaca Mole. Would love mole sauce that over their enchiladas or tamales if the kitchen works out their issues!More

My second time here, and the food selection is varied and the servings are large. Authentic Mexican selection is delicious and varied; one can order meals or a la carte. Staff is very friendly and the prep time is fast. You'll find this place jumping...at lunch time, but the food is quickly prepared and delivered to your table or packaged for take out. Recently the "diner" was enlarged to include ice cream and other frozen desserts, which looked tempting, but I was to full to indulge in the frozen options. Very clean and comfortable location in a centrally located small shopping area.More

This place is serving up solid Mexican food, great salsa and guac. El pastor tacos were great, Mexican omelet was ok, they also have homemade ice cream and some very unique flavors.

Bottom line: these are the best steak tacos in Bolingbrook. Details: I go to this place on the regularamd have the same thing every time. The steak tacos are superb. I'm sure the other food is just as good because the place is often busy....But the wait is never long and it is worth it even if it were.More

Salsa and chips are delish. (I think they make them on premise) Tacos, torres and platters are also great. Place gets crazy. Yay at lunchtime but it’s worth it. They just expands the floor plan as well. Need a better system for ordering in-house but...those are process kinks that should eventually get worked out. No need to go anywhere else for Mexican food!More

Kids love it here. Never too busy. TV's are new, and salsas are fresh and service table side to pickup dishes. Good for handicap parking, and wheelchair accessible.

Been here a few times and the food is always really good. It's a small local place that's good for dine in or take out. Has all your typical Mexican dishes. The prices are good. The service is friendly, you can't go wrong. If you're...thinking of going to Taco Bell or Chipotle give this a try instead.More
