We had tacos and a burrito - the Adovado. It was hot and tasty. The ground beef taco was greasy (but still tasty) and the fish taco was ok. The burrito was big. Good, filling meal.

From our previous experience - Night and day. Lots of seating. Area a little sketchy but not bad during middle of day. We went around 1:30pm. We ordered a smaller amount of food this time to make sure it was nice and hot. Ordered nachos...- excellent. I had 2 carne asada and 1 puffy adobe. Both were excellent but I think i prefer the carne asada one. Plenty of salsas available. The rest of the folks in the party also enjoyed their food. Definitely will be back.More

My friend and I ate at the location on Coors & Central. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Cindy answered our questions and made a couple of recommendations. The taco shells are like none I've had before. They're light and crispy. We each ate...3 tacos and didn't feel like we were stuffed. The guacamole is fresh and delicious. The queso is amazing! It's a must try! I can't wait to comeback and try their legendary puffy tacos!More

Small establishment with limited inside and outside seating. Friendly, quick service. Limited menu focusing on tacos, which are excellent. Quesadilla and burritos are also on the menu. I had the green chili brisket tacos with beans and rice. All were fabulous!

The food comes out quick, is tasty. The sauces a bit spicy. The atmosphere is nothing to write home about but for $10-12 you get a decent meal. Fast casual style.

Stopped in yesterday with another couple to try something different. Again - we sampled quite a bit. And shared a loaded nachos amongst the table. Ordered 4 tacos, 1 puffy taco, 1 burger, and 1 loaded nacho. Loaded nacho - most excellent. Table really enjoyed...but we had lots left over. Now the 4 single tacos - all were a fail due to all being cold. I think since we ordered so much and our order number got grouped with the other couple, these tacos sat and got cold. I should of taken back but I didn't. They were the ground beef, chicken, asada and green chile shredded beef. Maybe the singles should have been made last since they would be prone to getting cold. So we did not enjoy these. Burger - no more room so that had to go in a doggy bag for home that evening. Upon reheat, it wasn't the same. I even changed out the veggies since the original ones were sogged out. oh well. teach me to sample so much at one time. The puffy was really big and still hot. This was good but got a little soggy. The reheated nachos were good though. So ordering too much samples and letting us get grouped at the table made for a kind of a bad visit. Might try again. But nothing really screamed to come back. It's a maybe for now. If you haven't tried, you have to. Solely based on the other rave reviews it has. We just had a miss.More

Casa Taco turns out some very good street tacos, both in taste and variety, for a decent price and with exceptional service (for a walk up counter kind of place). I've had a variety of tacos and they're all great. The signature brisket tacos are...quite good, the Yucatan unique and very tasty, and the Carne Asada tacos flavorful. The service is always friendly. Atmosphere is a big fat zero.More

Order a to go order of Mama's Nachos Platter, and the Brisket Tacos to go. Order was freshly made, If your hungry order this plate. Plenty for two. Fresh salsa and pico de gallo was also good. Not hot, but with good flavor. They changed...their menu from time to time. Will go back again and try their shrimp and tilapia tacos. I do not recommend the drive through and do not order on the phone since your food may get cold. Order inside and waited was not long for them to make my order. Not to expensive spent $22.00 on my order, worth the price.More

I really like Casa Taco and I am a frequent customer; It reminds me of my favorite hole in the wall from El Paso, Little Shack. Recently I had a craving for Casa Taco and took my girl friend with me. There were just a...couple people in front of us but it took forever to get our order placed ( drive up window took priority over waiting customers), then after 15 minutes I queried about our order, simple fish tacos and a basket of tortilla chips. 30 minutes later our order came, it was cold and not what we ordered. I figured they were having a bad night and let it go at that. Went back a few days later; long wait to order, long time waiting only to recieve a cold order but hey it was right this time; hence two stars instead of one. I am not sure what is going on but I will spend my time and money elsewhere.More

This location is casual and family friendly. The tacos are delicious and the platter comes with rice and beans. The chips and queso are outstanding. Outdoor seating is available, but not very scenic. Friendly employees, comfortable atmosphere.
