“great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

great place for a quick breakfast. the food was delicious (I had the pancakes and my husband had the gallo pinto with eggs), the waitress was very friendly and helpful and we sat outside, just under a big old tree. really nice way to start the day!

“Taco bar done right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

My meal started with great friendly service and more importantly with great suggestions in the vast menu! I ordered the 3 taco combo. The first was a shrimp in coconut sauce taco, the shrimp was kind of small but the sauce was spectacular. The second taco was a Tuna spicy cooked right! Finally I saved the best for last Fried dorado cooked to perfection in an amazing batter. The portion was 3 large pieces of fresh fish! I washed this great meal with a ginger mint lemonade because they don't offer beer! I had several visits to the salad bar and loved the sides and all the fresh greens oh an the variety of sauces was a plus! My friend got the burrito and he said it was amazing and it was huge! Great location and awesome design, Great restaurant overall!

“Great Atmosphere. Good food reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I vsisted this place with some friends and have been back at least a 1/2 dozen times. nice little niche restaurant offering pretty much any kind of taco you could want. I hear from friend that breakfasts are really good and really cheap. The ironic thing is this place does not serve alcohol. Pretty funny since it has a"Bar" in its name. Also, the first time after hearing about it, i was expecting some kind of dive, i was very very pleasantly surprised

“Great atmosphere and pleasently decorated bars that doesnt match the poor service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Me and my friend showed up at the place without beign welcomed found a seat on our own. Then a while later we were told to go order at the cashier were the cashier girl looked like she was also the weitress there. Obviously theyre well under staffed. We recieved our order then i asked for some ranch which i found out they didnt have for the salad when i asked for it the second time. Real poor service but the swings at the bars and the stars on the floor were attractive.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry to hear your Tacobar experience wasn't 100% positive. We do have a sign indicating that ordering is to be done with the cashier which you may have missed. We will look into making it more visible. We hope you will give us another try. Kind regards, The Tacobar Team.

“Very good for a Taco Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We had very good fish tacos and salad for two for under $23, not bad for very fresh food. Salad bar could use some more additions like basic "salad" staples in case someone does not like the typical "pico de gallo" style but other than that you can make a meal in itself at the bar. No staff on site when we first walked in but once they knew we were there they stayed close by. Looking forward to returning often and to try the $3 breakfast special. Only thing missing, a nice cold beer or glass of wine!
