Great food, good vibe, and top service. It is great value and every time I eat here it reminds all that is wrong with the big fast food chains. Here you can eat home cooked fresh food for the same price as Big Mac meal. Not sure how authentic it is because I'm not from Mexico but it tastes great.

We have been there before and it was great, tried it again yesterday, as good as ever! Living my entire life in Southern California, Arizona, and Mexico, I know Mexican - this is as good as it gets in Nuremberg! and it is probably better than most places in Germany! They made a pulled pork taco that was insanely delish... real, slow cooked for hours pulled pork... wow, was not expecting that in Germany. This is by far the best bet for Mexican in Nuremberg, this is coming from a Los Angeleno... And the staff is super friendly and of course speaks perfect English y Spanish! I would expect this place to be in LA, and it would be packed!

One word: dreadful.

I've never had good Mexican or Tex-Mex food in Germany but this was the worst of the worst. I ordered a chorizo burrito. It had a tortilla wrapper but every thing else was completely foreign to a burrito. It had a few little bits of Spanish chorizo (wrong country folks). Some kind of creamy mayo-like sauce. Vegetables that tasted liked pickles. No southwest spices. YUK. I think it should been listed as "german salad wrap with a sprinkling of Spanish chorizo."

I realize that every country interprets food a little but when it doesn't even remotely resemble the original you should warn those of us who know what the native version tastes like. I know Southwest/Tex Mex food and this is NOT Mexican, Tex-Mex or Southwest food.

Self service only so may not be great for a "date" and they were out of Corona the day we were there..... but overall, quite good. I do not believe I will ever find anything really like my Southern California Mexican food but this is the best we have found in Germany so far. It is like mexican, but a bit healthier, less frying and more grilling, the chili verde was surprisingly authentic. They close at 8 pm and are closed Sunday, they do have an attractive website: www.hottacos.de. Alas, still can not find the elusive carne asada here in Germany, but we are still looking...... Maybe in Berlin?
