Nothing to be said for atmosphere but great authentic tacos, cheap cold beer and absolutely awesome salsa, especially the tomatillo. Service was attentive and prompt.

Recently moved in to the neighborhood very close to Taqueria Fast, and a friend said she used to go occasionally. Went for supper on a Wednesday. Service was fair, food was okay, but lived up to it's name - was on the table minutes after ordering. Atmosphere was okay. There's lots of other places around that are better, but if... More

I went for the first time in years and the food was as amazing as I remembered but the service was awful. After being ignored for a few minutes, we were told to seat ourselves and sat there for a really long time before our 16 year old, rude and unenthusiastic server came and took our drink order. No smiles,... More

We eat here regularly - it's the most authentic casual Mexican food we've found in Asheville. The tacos are typical, classic taco stand tacos, much like what I grew up on in Southern California.

The food was great! You get a lot for your money. The environment was nice but the service was kind of crappy. They took our order, brought it out and never checked on us again. We had to flag somebody down to get the check after sitting there for a half hour just waiting.

This is not a restaurant most people would find on its own. It is located in a small strip shopping center that is a little elevated from the road. However, it is worth the effort to find it since it serves some of the most authentic and cheapest Mexican food in the area. For example they serve two types of... More
