Okay... Now that I've had time to sit on this and recover from the trauma, that was my delivery from Victor's Taco Shop on Tuesday, let's review! I had just made the 9 hour drive home from KC, I was tired, I was hungry, and...I didn't want to go back out. Delivery seemed easy enough. I don't know if the Dasher picked it up from the restaurant that way, if she dropped it after leaving the restaurant, or if she drove like a bat out of hell, but regardless of where the spillage actually happened, I can't believe that any sane-minded person would actually leave this food for someone. She knew exactly what she was doing by leaving the food and taking off, too, (see screenshot in the photos). 🙄 I had to grab a towel to place the bag on, and each box got put on a paper plate. It took me so long just to clean up the mess, that I didn't get to enjoy any of the food while it was hot. Everything was such a mess, so I didn't really take any photos of the actual food either. Ordered: Chips & Salsa, Chicken Supreme Fries, Big OH Burrito, and Grilled Chicken Bowl. I like my chips light and airy, and these chips were really thick and hard. Just not my preference when it comes to tortilla chips. The salsa was good. The chicken fries were really good! Even after delivery, and sitting while I cleaned the mess, they were still tasty. The shell for the taco bowl was nice and crisp. If they made their chips similarly to the bowl, I think the chips would be a lot better. I did ask for no avocado, and the salad was covered in guac. The big burrito is HUGE. That's going to be about 3 meals for me. It's difficult to judge that one, since all of my sauce was in the bag. 🤦‍♀️ It looked similar to @tacobell's Enchirito, and that idea was really exciting, but it wasn't actually similar at all. It's wrapped in two tortillas, and that alone makes it a lot. I probably wouldn't order the burrito again, because it was just so much. Not bad, just a lot. Definitely wouldn't order it for delivery again regardless! Most of it seems like it will probably reheat well for leftovers. The only exception maybe being the taco bowl, which is understandable. 🌮More

Enjoyed my taco and enchilada. Loved the fresh salsa. Very friendly staff. Was missing home and this helped : )

Really good food at a really good price. If you can't get two meal off of the one you order there's a problem. But, the food is not just big, its GOOD!

My first visit here wasn't that great, but this one was better. Had a chicken chimichanga with rice and beans. The chimi came with guac and sour cream and was tasty. The beans and rice were good, too. A huge portion (will make at least...two meals) with a drink for a little over $9. Can't beat that price. This is a drive thru, so no place to sit. Brought mine home and ate in front of the TV.More

Yikes! Something has really changed in the last several months at this local. My crispy taco shells were so badly over cooked to a dark brown and greasy because they were fried way too long! Disgusting actually. The beans for a second recent visit were...dry and seemed old & under proper food temperature. IDK...getting disappointing here. 😢More

I’ve had food from another Victors so decided to try this one down from the base and I was not impressed at all, the young lady at the window was nice but the food was not good at all, first of all I ordered chips...and salsa, the salsa looked like it was in jello form so I couldn’t even eat it. I ordered 3 small tacos which the meat was cold even though it had ok flavor. The side of beans had no flavor so needless to say I won’t be visiting there again.More

If you drive by too fast, you might miss these tiny treasures. Hot, fresh, made to order, take out food is always good. Portions are huge!

I had the taco and enchilada combo. The beef taco was really good, but the cheese enchilada was pretty ordinary. (I was actually surprised it was a cheese enchilada and had no meat.) The rice and beans were good, but no salsa was provided and...I had to add some of my own. Will go back and try again soon.More

The wife heard about this place from friends and since we've lived here have wanted to find a good representation of taco stands like we used to frequent when we lived in the Southwest...so we decided to give it a try. My wife had her...'go-to' taco stand choice which is Carne Asada fries and I tried a sampling of tacos (chicken and beef). Her fries were nice and crispy with the right amount of Carne Asada and the usual toppings. My tacos were just how I like them...nice and crunchy shells but slightly soaked with grease/oil, enough meat to taste it and plenty of lettuce tomatoes etc. Their sauces are very good too with a nice amount of spice. One parting suggestion, they have great Horchatas (think milk + cinnamon + rice + ice)...best I've had around here. Do give them a try, I don't think you'll be disappointed...good prices / reasonable, too.More

This is the most Mexican Mom and Pop restaurant I have found in this area. It's typical of the small shops you find in Mexico and the southwestern USA. It's small, and was crowded. There are three tables and a narrow bar along one wall...for inside seating and two tables outside. Service was quick and the meals very good. The restaurant was clean and presented a friendly atmosphere.More

I went here with a friend after hearing some good things about it. This restaurant doesn't have an inside, so you either take it with you, sit in the parking lot and eat, or eat on one of the two tables they have outside. My...friend and I both got the Big Ohio burrito, and it was definitely big! It was the first time in a while I was unsure of if I could finish my meal! It was absolutely very, very delicious, and pretty cheap as well! I will definitely be coming back often! Drive through service was pretty friendly as well.More

We visited the Fairborn location; it hasn't been open too long. We thought the food was pretty good. Tacos and enchiladas were great; especially steak adobado. The rice and beans were really good, too. Their cheese for the nachos is fantastic; had to buy one...to go! There is no inside seating; just some tables outside. Location is mostly for drive-thru or carry out. The young man helping us was extremely nice and helpful. We'll be back!More

This is strictly a drive thru, but their food is great! I grew up in California & it's the best Mexican food, especially tacos, I've found! Please expand to the south Dayton area too!! Good stuff!

Really good bacon fries, you get more food then you expect I can tell you that. They seem to be super busy in the afternoon. There is a drive through and I they give you extra napkins.
