Since I moved 50 miles from Taco Hideout in Galesburg, I plan my visits to Galesburg around the opening hours of Taco Hideout. I like that there are several options on the type of taco shell to choose from. Where I live now the only choice is the hard, preformed boxed store bought variety. Plus the price is great, $5.99...

If you only have time to eat at one restaurant, this is the place. They have the best tacos, enchiladas, and homemade hot sauce I've ever eaten--and yes I've eaten in Mexico. Don't let the location or outside deter you--it adds to the charm. Family run and so many locals eat here once a week.

Been eating her since the 60's. Left for 29 years and was grateful on my return that the Hideout survived. Same great Taste. Who wants Pizza anyway?

Although not like you get in Mexico, this restaurant has very good tacos and probably the best hot sauce this side of the Mississippi. Service is great and don't be fooled if the parking lot is full as there is plenty of places to sit inside.

This is a great little family resturant off the "beaten trail" but well worth finding...probably the reason it's known as the "Hideout". The food is great with nice portions with quick service. The Friday afternoon lunch is a weekly stop. The owner Jack does a helluva job in the kitchen and makes it a point even when busy to stop... More

If you aren't from Galesburg, it might be difficult to just happen upon Taco Hide Out, but you should seek it out. Great, inexpensive Mexican food. Just can't beat it.

The best Mexican restaurant in town! When my dad was living, we ate there at least once a week and I still make it out there often. It has the best hot sauce!!!

A little out of the way but worth getting to on a Friday for lunch, as I believe it is only open on the weekends. Enchiladas are very good as I get only them.
