“Good and Cheap American Friendly Mexican Food”
Review of Taco Roco Mexican Restaurant - CLOSED

Taco Roco Mexican Restaurant

Restaurant details
Reviewed December 14, 2009

My wife grew up in San Luis Obispo and swears by their burritos. One of the restaurant locations is near where my Mother and Father Law live. On a recent visit, and on a very rainy night, we decided to dine there. The restaurant is situated in a strip mall and the inside looks like a glorified Taco Bell. Very Modern, and very plain. Like traditional fast food establishments, the menu is posted behind a counter, you place the order, pay, sit down, and then wait for them to bring your meal. The menu has the traditional variety of chicken, steak, or carnitas. There is no Al Pastor, spicy chicken, or other variations of meat you will find in a traditional Mexican restaurant. I ordered a cheese enchilada and chile relleno combination which came with the obligatory refried beans and rice. The highlight of the relleno was that it was made from a fresh Anaheim Chile as opposed to a can. Many of the seeds were still inside, and the cheese inside was gooey and tasty. The beans, however, tasted like they were from the can, but the rice was fresh and not too sticky. The best part of the restaurant were that the beers were only $2 and it was past happy hour. My thoughts on this place are that if you are looking for authenticity, go elsewhere but if you are looking a cheap standard mexican fair, you cannot go wrong.
