“GREAT Chips and salsa”
Reviewed May 29, 2012 via mobile

Taco Rico has great chips and salsas. When I mean salsas I mean they 8 different sauces for any pallet. They sauces range from mild to very hot. Which one is better I enjoyed them all. The ground beef tacos are excellent, the strip beef they are okay, chicken tacos very good.
The enchiladas were excellent, the service was good and prompt and all the food we ate was well priced

“Where Has This Gem Been Hiding???”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

Ate here ate the recommendation of our shuttle bus driver. This was the first meal we had upon landing and OMG did it ever deserve to be the first!
The restaurant doesn't look like much but lemme tell you: go in and order yourself a taco, burrito, enchilada...something! Out of our party of 4, everyone enjoyed their meal. Nothing but praises over here :)

“Unexpectedly Good”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

I've driven past many times but finally stopped because I had a coupon in a local coupon book and I'm glad I did. The place is not very nice but seems sufficient for its seating needs. The food was great, fresh and very flavorful. The prices are very good too. Definitely on my keeper list.

“Long Line, Lots of Locals Here”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

Passed by this restaurant several times and always saw a line of people (especially young people). Decided to try it since it seemed popular with the locals. Food was very good and servings were very large. Limited indoor seating, some outdoor seating that seemed popular.

“Good Mexican Food.”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Your typical 'hole in the wall,' but the food is very good. The inside is not fancy at all, so don't go expecting nice ambiance. In fact you may be disappointed by the looks. Just concentrate on the good tasting food and it's worth it.
