We came here late in the evening. The place looked really dirty. Food on the floor and tables. Some people had food and it looked awfull. Waitress did not see us and after a few minutes we just left.
Please do not go here.

If you are looking for GREAT Mexican food, on South Beach, at GREAT prices....Look no further!
Located just off of the Western end of Lincoln Road, and the movie theatre, this "no nonsense, ambience" (no fuddy duddy decorations here) place is just right for taking a food break, while eating and (if you wish,) watching the Televisions overhead.. (The sounds are lowered so you can have a conversation..)
On my latest visit, I opted for the special of the day home made lentil soup... WOW Great taste and flavor... Had a taco supreme with it... The shell was good and fresh, and not too hard, and the beef and fillings were both tasty and made to order.. My wife had a "tri box" of a taco, burrito and what could only be described as a bean pie! This was served with rice and shredded lettuce and cut tomatoes. She usually "picks"at her for, but NOT here, she ate it all!
They also have the greatest "sauce bar" with many many freshly made flavors to add "just the right" zing to your food.. Add a Mexican beer on draft, and you're good to go!
If you are ever in South Beach and want a "non pretentious" food experience that leaves both your stomach and your wallet, happy, HERE IT IS!

Thought this looked like the real thing. Cold, dry and greasy. Never again. Like fast food Mexican, but not as good.

Staying in Miami Beach after a cruise, we were looking for a dinner that wouldn't be all fussy and "done up." Taco Rico fit the bill.

We started with their delicious chili con queso, which had a very nice flavor. The homemade chips were delicious.

For our main meals, we both had the taco salad. Just the right amount of lettuce, meats and cheeses, and just spicy enough.

The downside was the very loud Miami Heat game in the background. While I have nothing against the Heat, it was so loud we couldn't converse.
