“Best food ever. Consistent for at least 22 years.”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

It's difficult for a restaurant to keep their food consistent for a long period of time. Taco Stand has done just that. The nachos, cheese dip, and burritos are my favorite. The black bean and rice burrito extra hot is incredible and I can't find anything like it anywhere else. Great for lunch, dinner, or late night. Fun bar with GREAT bartenders. Love it.

“Tasty and Easy on the Wallet”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This place is pretty darn good for a cheapo taco place. The food cannot be good for you, but it was tasty. They were a little slow, but all in all pretty good!

“Average in a town with better options”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Simple, cheap, average. It's hard to come back here when I can get to Cali n Titos, Taqueria del Sol, and Sr. Sol in town. So it's not really about the quality of their food, which is cheap, simple, and what you'd expect for college town american-mexican, but why spend my calories here when it's competitors are better?

“Decent Food. Horrendous Environment.”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

My friends and I used to walk here to grab lunch at times when in college. The food is not bad and it's very budget friendly, which is always ideal for a college kid. Now that I've graduated, gotten a "real" job and can afford to eat at better restaurants in Athens, I have NO desire to eat at The Taco Stand on Milledge. I was honestly shocked at how dirty the place looked the first time I walked in. Usually when I walk in and am appalled at the filthiness of a restaurant, the first thing I look for is the infamous health inspection score. It was a "C". Need I say more about the cleanliness? Of all the times I visited this place, the staff behind the counter was less than friendly. Whoever does the hiring for this place must strictly do phone interviews. God forbid they hire people who own a razor and soap. I've eaten there enough times out of necessity to say this place gets a "D" rating from me at best.

“It has proved”
Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

I have been here a few times. It is reasonably priced Mexican fare. They only have counter service and the place is very uninteresting but clean. There is nothing special about it but if you want a college town Mexican food experience this is your place. We will be back because my son-in-law loves the place.
