It was OK but was nothing like authentic mexican food. More like american food with a mexican flare. Seems popular with other local folks but if you really like Mexican food and you have been outside of Jamestown, you will be disappointed.

We ordered the two for one special and it was great. The mango margarita was incredible . All topped off with the fried ice cream.

While we like to visit this restaurant every so often as a change of pace for the local offering I always feel Nickel and Dimed when I leave the place. Most Mexican restaurants, I have been to dozens across the country, serve tortilla chips with some salsa as a light snack to tide you over till food comes. Be careful,... More

Taco Hut one of those local restaurants that you grow up with. Even though it's not really authentic Mexican food people still seem to keep going back to it. I've been going to it for over 30 years and my friends all enjoyed it also. It's a good budget-minded food and you will walk away full.

We stop here every other time we are in town from Cleveland. I swear the food has been the same for 25 years and maybe even more! If you do not know what you want, just ask a few questions and they'll help you out. The service is prompt, portions are large (including the drinks) and they do a good... More

In my family, a trip back home to Jamestown isn't complete without at least one meal at Taco Hut. My brother and I have been eating here since it opened - more than 30 years - and that it is still there and thriving is a pretty good recommendation. Yes - its not Mexican, Mexican food - but most of... More

The service is good and the food is Mexican American. Overall a good value for the money. They have been downtown for a long time and that's because they offer value

Taco Hut is a downtown staple for what Jamestown calls 'Mexican' food. Location is good as there's usually plenty of street parking. They have daily specials which are very reasonable. The tacos are decent. The enchiladas are very salty. The queso/melted cheese is acceptable. The red sauce sits on the table in a plastic ketchup type dispenser. I had fajitas... More

I haven't been here for years because the food was mediocre, but the Cuban restaurant was closed today so figured we'd give it a try. The server was nice and the restaurant appeared to be clean. Weirdly, you have to pay for the mediocre chips and salsa ($3.60). I don't believe I've ever been in a Mexican restaurant where you... More
