“Best Mexican food in Taiwan!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

I was very shocked to find Mexican food in hualien. We shot a film there and for lunch I had the chicken burrito. Yum!!! Excellent service and cool owners! I loved the way they baked or fried (not sure) the burrito it made a crunch as I bit into it. Yum! I loved their fresh ingreidients and their salsa and hot sauce are divine. I would definitely recommend and go back!

“Great food, great service, great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

We are from San Antonio Texas, and we know Tex-Mex. Dos Tacos was a blast, the food was great (one of the best salsas we have ever had, and they refill it if you want) plus the atmosphere was really chill. If you are looking for a relaxed, low key, authentic people kind of restaurant, then this is your place. By the way, the owner (a gringo) really represents with an awesome, fresh mint mojito. When I say fresh mint, I mean he grows the mint on property in front of the restaurant on the deck and picks it just for your mojito. The only way a mojito should be made :) No hype, just great people and service. Completely recommend...

“Don't miss the opportunity to have the best Mexican food in Taiwan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Ther are a few Mexican restaurants in Taipei, but with Dos Tacos it's as good as it gets when it comes to Mexican food. Everything from the Sauce to the Burrito itself was just excellent and made with high end quality ingredients. The price seems maybe a bit high, but after you just have one bite you are certain that this is worth every single NT$.
But actually it's not just about the food. If you also want a heartwarming welcome, then you will be at the right address. You feel that they love their restaurants and are happy about you as a guest, so you will love it too. I will definitely go there again and again, and if it's just for a cold Stella to have a nice chat.
Highly recommended!

“Tex Mex in Taiwan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Only thing better than the food at Dos Tacos are the people that run it. We came back again the second time we were in Hualien purely to hang out with the crew. Legends.

The food is packed with flavour. If you're hungry, go with a chimichanga - a deep fried burrito with a side of rice, beans and
quac. It is a thing and it is as good as it sounds. On a side note, I didn't need to eat again after one of those.

We came to Taiwan not expecting to eat anything closely resembling Tex-Mex... But super glad that we stumbled across this place. Keep doing your thing Dos Tacos!
