My favorite Mexican food in Lafayette!

I haven't had Taco Rico in a while, and I was craving a taco salad. I'm 5 months pregnant and I remembered eating this delicious salad from a restaurant a couple years ago. I didn't know the name, just the location. Made the trip into town and ordered myself a shrimp fajita taco salad and... read more

We were in town to visit Purdue University campus and wanted a bite to eat before leaving. We chose this restaurant based on the other reviews. We were very disappointed. The salsa, cheese dip and guacamole were very good. We all had various quesadillas (cheese, chicken, shrimp) and they were nothing special. They weren't bad, but I was expecting them... More

I adore this place. They have the best steak burritos I've ever had and the queso dip is incredible. Furthermore, the price is right. I can eat for less than $10 and am guaranteed to be full and still have half my plate to take home with me for later. Our waitress was fantastic, and the overall environment was great.... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Lafayette area. The food is so fresh. Try the tacos and the guacamole (the guac is amazing). Or for a meal that will last you for 2-3 lunches, get the nachos appetizer. It is HUGE.

This is a must visit if you are looking for great Mexican in Lafayette. I was introduced by a friend 5 years ago, moved away 4 years ago, and travel back to eat it every 3 months. Try it, you'll thank me, and Taco Rico!

Good selection of menu items. Free chips and salsa. We just had tacos - and picked an assortment from chorizo, carnitas, chicken and al pastor. Tacos were inexpensive and very tasty. Food arrived quickly and service was attentive and friendly. Will definitely be back next time we are in town. Well done Taco Rico!

... in an area where ethnic food is limited to chain restaurants. We stumbled on to Taco Rico a few years ago and it is our GO TO place in Lafayette. Authentic, fresh ingredients. Anything with chorizo is my favorite, especially the Tortas or Tostada. Good chips and salsa. They only offer beer, so if you're looking for margaritas, you're... More

I had been looking forward to sampling some of their "Authentic" Mexican food, looked at their hours of operation online, and they had it listed as closing at 10:00pm. Left and made it to Taco Rico at 9:32pm. The signs they have posted on the doors of their actual establishment also state their closing time to be 10:00pm, but despite... More
