The food, service, and atmosphere is wonderful. The owner is always on site and visits each table, when possible. The table side making of the guacamole is nice. The new outdoor seating is small but offers another options for dining.

I love going to Taxco. My favorite thing is their salsa. It is spicy, definitely not a sweet Americanized salsa. They will even let you purchase some to take home for later! The people that work here are very friendly. I definitely will be eating here more often.

The service was good, there were several large parties dining while we were their so a few times it did feel... More

Upon entrance you can watch the tortillas being made. Though the food is still geared "mild" for most, I like mine hot and spicy but the menu offers a variety of choices. The guacamole was made fresh at our table. We tried fajitas, chile relleno, taco salad and some other items all were served hot, fresh and delicious. Service was... More

Taxco is an upper-level Mexican restaurant with a great many menu items. Good and service are both excellent. Prices a bit high. We like this place, and we go for special occasions.

Taxco has yummy food! The freshly made to order guacamole is the best. The tacos and the fajitas all great. All the orders include chips and salsa. They also deliver.

The food and atmosphere at Taxco is wonderful. A variety of traditional entrees as well as some unique recipes. Have to have their guacamole which is made right at your table. Margaritas to die for.

We decided to bypass some Mexican restaurants in the Fox River Valley, to eat at Taxco. We know the food is always consistent and good. We had ordered the Nacho Grande with chicken, to share. In addition we had their table side prepped guacamole. (She accepts tips). Their house margaritas are very good. We the order is placed, we always... More

We always enjoy Taxco. Love the "pimp" my margarita option. It is so much fun creating your own flavors. The chicken tacos are great and I love this dish with steak, peppers, onions and cheese. Sorry I can't remember the name of it. Every time we are in Sycamore visiting family, we try to make the time to stop by... More

This place was fun and affordable, and I really liked the open windows! Being from San Diego, I have been in search of a place that had authentic Mexican cuisine, and I think I've found it! The chips were good and salty, and the soup was so authentic I had to cut the chicken on a plate and put it... More
