Just happened to spot this charming place and decided to try it. Was not disappointed! Everything that we had was amazing! I think it was very worth the price of the individual tacos. The flavor combinations were outstanding! Everything tasted so fresh and the quality...of the food was exceptional! We will definitely be back! Great service too! ❤️More

Came in with a business associate and he recommended this place. Ordered 3 different tacos and they were quite tasty but expensive! $5.95 per taco! If you're on a budget, this is not the place for you. The food was good, but I don't think...that I would return as there are many taco options in the city.More

Thank you for coming in. Just want to clarify-our taco start at $3.25. The most expensive ones are $4.95 and those are either beef tenderloin, blackened Mahi or fried local shrimp. More than half of our tacos are $3.25

These tacos were only okay for both vegan and normal tacos with a choice of corn or flour tortillas. They were very simple and were not as good as many other tacos we have had, however it’s a nice place and the area it is...in a scenic area. Yucca fries are a must get! They are delicious and really the only thing we would have gotten again. The spicy sauce with it is delicious and they are the perfect balance of salt and lime on them. Plus they are vegan! They have 3 kinds of vegan tacos and many kinds of meat tacos. The vegan taco options included a 1) hummus/tabouli, 2) asparagus, and 3) tempeh with a choice between general tsos sauce or chili lime sauce. I tried all 3 and got the last one with general tsos sauce, but would recommend getting the chili lime sauce instead. The asparagus tacos were just asparagus in a tortilla - I would recommend the asparagus as a side instead of in taco form. I would not recommend the tabouli taco at all. It was too much hummus and really not that good. The tempeh taco was ok and probably the best taco of the 3, but the general tsos sauce was not good. My husband got blackened mahi, buttermilk fried chicken, and general tsos chicken. His favorite of the 3 was the fried chicken. He does not recommend the general tsos sauce and also thought it was not good. The atmosphere is good. There is indoor and outdoor seating and the inside seats have crayons where you can color on the paper placemats while you wait. Wait was probably 15 minutes for our food. Parking: there is a lot to the left side and street parking.More

This place is 10/10! The tacos are great and authentic street tacos. They have great flavor combinations and their specials are always interesting. The environment is laid back and the price is very reasonable. Definitely recommend!

Small restaurant just down the street from the Cummer Art Museum. This restaurant offers a variety of tacos and other items all made from fresh ingredients. My husband and I selected the brisket taco which was delicious and also a chicken taco which was fairly...good. Chips and salsa were good. However, neither me or my husband liked the fries. We would definitely dine there again. (Prices are very reasonable.)More

Located in the 5 Points area, this restaurant offers fresh food in a simple (but comfortable) setting. The menu has options for all (meat lovers, vegetarians, vegans) but isn’t too large. You order the taco(s) you sand along with sides and drinks and then customize...the flavor with various sauces. We tried 5 different tacos (meat, chicken, tempeh, vegan) with a side of beans. The only item we have to complain about was that the taco shells (we had corn) were cold with hot food in them. Had they been warmed on a griddle the meal would have been better. By the way, the service was very good and the staff friendly.More

Really amazing tacos, with unusual and highly appealing flavor combinations. I had the nachos, and was especially impressed with the complex pickling spice used for the jalepenos. The overall flavor combinations were incredibly good. Top notch food, pleasant, casual atmosphere.

We tried Corner Taco twice the first time the fried shrimp taco and the fried chicken (especially) was amazing!! I couldn’t stop thinking about the amazing fried chicken taco! We ended up trying the second time it must have been an off night it was...so strange the shrimp and chicken were way over fried the chicken had a weird black hue underneath the fried part and both had more batter it didn’t taste the same. My husband loves their burrito with the pineapple that was still great too the second time. The chips are really good too! I wish they would make a pico de gallo for the chips I’m not crazy about the chipolte kind. The veggies are so fresh too! We are gonna try again maybe the owner was there the night that it was amazing.More

Seriously amazing food! The Blackened Mahi Fillet is cooked to perfection and the sauce is insanely good. The Fried Yucca is perfectly crispy and the Sriracha sauce is so good. Can’t say enough good things! Allergy, vegan, vegetarian friendly.

“This is the best carnitas taco I’ve ever had” -Dad Corner Taco has seriously good food, and the entire menu is gluten free, even the desserts!! I highly recommend the shrimp, catfish, fried chicken, carnitas, and mahi tacos for an epic meal.

Good afternoon, I write today on relatively minor, unfortunate circumstances. Today my sister and spouse were visiting from Orlando and LOVE Corner Taco as much as we do. They stopped to pick up lunch for five and when they arrived at our home we found our order slightly wrong. The order was missing a corn quesadilla and the ordered tostada came as a taco. When my sister called to say we were missing part of someone's lunch the person answering the phone told us we had to bring our order back and that she had made the mistake so we weren't entitled to what we actually had ordered. If we wanted the quesadilla we would need to come up and buy one. $3.75 isn't a huge amount on either end, and the hostility received for asking about a mistake she made was off-putting and disappointing. Hopefully if this happens to customers in the future your staff will kindly apologize for their mistake and look to rectify the situation. The food is still amazing and we will be back :)
