That was NOT a $6 taco. The menu is confusing, making it sound as though the portions are just astounding. THEY. ARE. NOT. I can easily see spend $50 just to get enough to eat. Flavors really no better than taco bell. Very disappointed.

If you want service then post items you are open. I would have loved to support a local business, but not one that going to make me waste my time without even posting updated hours of operations.

I am originally from New Mexico, so being in Missouri I really missed the Tex-Mex food style. I first went to taco three weeks ago, I have been back roughly 7 times since to try out all of their different delicious tacos. On top of...an amazing staff that has always been super friendly, kind, and professional, the food itself is outstanding. I have not visited the Republic location, but this location on Battlefield is my new favorite restaurant in Springfield. And did I mention amazing prices??More

Was very impressed with the food, the atmosphere, and the service! My waiter, Anthony, was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped us pick out the perfect salsa! I will definitely be dining in again soon. Thank you, Anthony, for your great service :)

I came in today unexpectedly after a bad day at work and was greeted by the kindest worker I’ve encountered in a long time! With COVID still around I was unsure about even entering, but the manager Anthony ensured everything was disinfected and even re-cleaned...a table for me! He was so friendly while assisting me and suggested the most delicious Buffalo Shrimp Taco *drool*! I just want to thank Anthony for his kind service & for turning my bad day around with his jokes!More

Grew up in central California, lived as young adult in central Texas, so I have experienced great and less desirable Mexican foods. Very overpriced food, tortilla chips much like bagged from supermarket Big variety of salas but not tasty to my palette. Table service acceptable

Great food, good prices, with a drive-thu, even! I love the vegan on an avocado half. Select one of their many salas’s and it’s thrown in with chips for free. The ultimate salsa is our fave ... love that there’s a drive-thru option.

Had heard people rave about this place so decided to try - big mistake Only 2 tables when we came in, took over five minutes to be greeted and another 5-10 to get drinks. Chips and salsa were ok, but nothing to write home about....I ordered steak tacos - one bite of steak - that was all gristle (had to spit it out). The side of rice i ordered tasted soured - I could not eat it. My husbands dinner while edible was a burrito that was supposed to be served on a bed of rice (less than a tablespoon of rice on plate) and the burrito was the size of something I would expect to see on a kids menu (a joke). I did not eat any of my meal, my husband at a couple of bites, but again his rice was soured. When I finally flagged down a server there was no apology or offer to fix simply and oh. I went up to pay, the gentleman ran my card, slammed receipt for me to sign down on counter and walked off. I had to flag someone else down as I was not going to just leave credit card receipt laying, still no apology, offer to fix, nothing. I understand that things happen with food, but there is no excuse for horrible service! Avoid this place like the plague!More

They fry only corn items in the dryer. For those with celiac this is a blessing.

Yes, we do offer many gluten free options. The chips are corn tortillas fried in our gluten free frier, and the corn hard shell is the same. You can also order any taco on a stuffed avocado, or a lettuce wrap, or just get... More
