We always order the original tacos. They are generously portioned. The place is consistently busy, especially during lunch time. The service is fast. The Cobblestone Corner location is our favorite, but there is a bustling lunch crowd.

There's a reason why this place usually has a long line of locals at lunch time. Tacos with a flour shell that you won't find anywhere else. My teenaged son is a fan and asks to go here whenever we visit Des Moines.

Tasty Tacos is famous in Des Moines. I have been eating there since I was born, and it has always been a favorite. It is the first place many of our friends and family ask to go when they come to town. Think of it...More

The original flour tacos drip with grease and the enchiladas swim in grease, resulting in a gut ache. Flavorful, but take your tums!

This is where the name literally is correct. The right price, the easy menu, and those flour tortilla shell and their hot sauce is sooooo good.

Fantastic greasy tacos. When you go in, don't be on a diet. Just order an original taco beef or chicken. You won't regret it. You know it's good because you will be standing in line and waiting for your number to be called. Well worth...More

Read the trusted reviews. I've had worse. It was ok and cheap. Busy when we got there. Filled orders in no apparent order. Edible but boring. First and only time.
