I ordered the American hamburger and it was blah. Poor in salt and seasoning. I can cook a better hamburger at home.More

Hmm. That is interesting. We do season our patties when we cook them so I am not sure what we did wrong. Can you please give me more details? Time? Date? Our policy is to not over-season, as we want the flavors to be enhanced,...More

“Fast” food with a better than fast food quality! Fresh and flavorful and a large number of menu choices. Our relatives in the area love it, and now I know why. Skip the chain competitor for Mexican, you’ll be glad!

We wanted something different as we passed through Portals to Ruidoso. Decided on Taco Box. So glad we did. The staff were great and friendly, helped us decide on our order and even gave us a sample of chicken. We decided on quesadillas, Baja burritos,...and combo burritos. The Baja burrito was enough for me, but my teenage son and husband needed 2 things to fill them up. Price was great and service quick to get us back on the road.More

I love Taco Box. Their meat burritos are hot but good. I really like their taquitos. My husband likes the Spanish Fries Tator Tots but they are too expensive for their size. I also wish that they had put the salt in that I requested...on my last visit.More

Thanks for the great review. Sorry we did not get your salt. I will certainly let the crew know that we need to grant all reasonable requests.

Food is good, nothing too exciting, but you get what you pay for. Inexpensive, small portions. Nice friendly staff.More

I have a restricted diet, so there are few places that the kids want to eat at that I can eat at. I saw the taco box on my way through Portales, so decided to go there. I got the nachos, but when I received...them I thought they were too small. I decided to go back through the drive through to get some more but I realized that some things were wrong with my food. The [manager/owner?] was doing landscaping with another employee and came rushing over as we were backing out to see if everything was okay, so I told him what was up. He apologized profusely, took my food and said that he would come back with a large which he did really quickly. He also gave us some jars of salsa to show that he appreciated our business. Overwell I felt extremely respected and understood. Great customer service!!!More

Thanks for the review. First, I am sorry that you had to return for our mistake. I am glad that I was there to assist, but I am sure that the crew would have handled the correction in a similar manner. I hope your trip...More

This little drive-through apparently has been around forever. My wife bought food here since she was a kid. Anyway, we bought some tacos and burritos. All were fresh and tasty. The sauce is a little spicy but not too bad. Definitely lived up to its...name.More

Excellent hot sauce. Good variety on the menu- lots of different combos available. Across the street from ENMU - convenient with fast and cheerful service.

Taco Box does a good job for all meals including breakfast lunch. Nice selection of burritos and other Mexican type food. Everything seems to always be fresh and tasty. My favorite is the steak and potato burrito with an order of tater tots on the...side.More

My grand-daughter and I stopped in for a snack. She had the monkey bites and a malt, and I went for the chicken chimi. Very good and fresh.
