“Best Mexican in town!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Service was great. Food was very tasty ; good flavor. Beef brisket was tangy and the jalapeno corn bread made it. Fish taco was fresh and full of flavor.

“Mexico here I come”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Mexican experience in New England. Great atmosphere, large menu and range of spiciness. It is a fun family place and also great for work lunches or solo meals, Love the fresh salsa!

“Wonderful wings”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Have had a few great dinners here at east coast taco. Food is always good. Wings are wonderful. My wife loves the taco salad in the crispy crunchy bowl.
Always a good meal.

“Love Mexican!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

I love mexican food especially some yummy tasting fish tacos. I first discovered East Coast Taco over the summer when they had a food truck in Niantic and fell in love with it that day. I coudn't wait to try the actual restaurant. Its one of the best mexican food places around! And the homemade garlic salsa is awesome (but be aware it does have quite a bite to it!!) I do feel that the food fluctuates..one visit its good but the next time its amazing and so on. Definitely a must try! I also like its byob and its more casual then have an actual server.

“Control Your Kids”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

It was the day after Thanksgiving and I expected the place to be crowded, but the circus was not expected. There was a large family having a birthday party at of all places, East Coast Taco. Their two little ones kept running around the entire place and became very annoying. Kid will be kid, but their parents could care less if they were bothering the other dinners. I guess maybe they don't eat out much. The food was good, but the restaurant people didn't say a word to the party. It made for a very lousy eating event.
