I work down the street from Mrs. Taco. They have great Mexican food and great service. They are always busy during lunch but the turnover is pretty quick. The lines always go fast.

Their portions are big and their prices are reasonable. Their California burrito is way too big for lunch but it's sooo good. The shrimp burrito and carne asada burrito are also tasty. Their hot sauce could use a little more flavor. They have a more spicy sauce (habanero?) but you have to ask for that specifically. There's no salsa bar.

The only hang up I have about this place was the soda restriction - only 1 refill. I think it's petty when businesses do this. Usually, people aren't there for long to have 2-3 refills. There are also people who fill up once so it should all even out. But I digress...

The decor is much nicer compared to all the other Mexican food restaurants. You go in, order, get a number and have a seat. They bring the food over to you.

Stopped in on a recommendation from a family member. Nice to have a good Mexican restaurant in Vista to avoid a drive further south. Great, fresh food and decent prices, well worth a try!

Not your typical Mexican restaurant. You can order to go or eat-in. The decor is really nice with granite table tops, barstool seating, beautiful outdoor patio for dining - yet it's a really casual setting. The food is really good, and most things are $5-10. Employees are friendly, and the restaurant is always very clean.

Living in SoCal you get simple Mexican food anywhere anytime. Mrs Taco is not just another of these places, it has some special dishes that are worth a visit. First time I went it was under protest but had to admit it was better tan most second time I discovered Colorado Chili, been back 3 times since then, what more can I say. Other recomendation is the fish taco, very fresh
