Our family has been going to Tacos El Norte for over 20 years. The food is good and the price is fair. On Fridays you get a two piece serenade. Good local place not fancy with decent Mexico food and friendly service. Now a tradition...More

food is not as good as it use to be. Doesn't seem as clean and quality of food has lost something. Need to ask for things that should be on table.

My favorite Mexican eatery anywhere. The chicken coca-cola is fabulous. Great food, very friendly staff, and affordable prices. With the recent venue expansion, securing a seat in a timely manner is much easier.

The food was decent but the service was extremely slow. My husband and I ordered a margarita and it was like drinking straight lime juice so I would not recommend those at all. Took about 15 minutes just to get our check!
