Best homemade taco`s in town. Golden fried flour tacos with the homemade salsa can`t be beat. The Taco house has fast friendly service. They get you in and out in no time.

A notch above Taco Bell, this place offers cheap tacos and fast food service. Located in the heart of the Sun District near Cesar Chavez St in Saint Paul, there are better Mexican style restaurants near by but if you are on the go and need fast food, you can satisfy your taco cravings here.

Wow, I see a lot of misplaced reviews for this fast food taco place. Note that anyone mentioning buffet or restaurant is talking about Boca Chica the sit down restaurant across the street, not the Boca Chica taco house. Boca Chica Taco House is/was our go-to taco place. Loved their tamales, sopes, fried flour tacos, bean tostadas, and papas burritos.... More

We eat at Taco House quite often. It's almost fast food with all of the flavors you want from a Mexican restaurant. The prices are excellent. Husband loves the homemade salsa which is too hot for me.

Food is ordered at the counter and then optional sit in dining or take out. The salsa bar with help yourself portions are the main appeal for spicing up your lunch or dinner!

My favorite place for take out tacos and burritos. I always get the crunchy chicken tacos and the hubby gets a bean and cheese burrito enchilada style. The Enchilada sauce is amazing. The chicken tacos come with lettuce, cheese, sour cream and cilantro. Great flavor.

The place is not fancy, but the food is really good. My favorite is the tamale but everything is very tasty. The staff are nice but are very hesitant to give you a cup to hold any extra salsa, which always seems a bit strange to me. You go to their restaurant, order several meals, and then they won't give... More

We went there for team lunch but none of us liked the buffet then some of us ordered tacos. Buffet was below average and so didn't like it.

Nice atmosphere for Lunch or Dinner. Drinks from the bar can not be recommended, but the meal was very nice. We shared the Carnitas and with the side dishes of rice and nicely prepared black beans made for a great lunch.
