“Not a Taco Bell”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

This may be a chain . . . but it's no Taco Bell. Made to order from fresh ingredients, these Tacos are tasty, crispy, delicious delights. The service was friendly and cordial , no "canned routine" like Moe's. These people actually seem happy to see you! A Hot Sauce Bar dispenses whatever octane sauce you'd like. Beer and wine on the menu, too. What more can you ask for? A few bucks more than TB--but worth it.

“Love it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Love this place! Highly recommend. Good food - good value. Staff was helpful and friendly. We ate at another location last year in vacation, just as good. Steak is big chunks and the chicken tacos rock! My husband loves the fish tacos as well.

“Love this place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

I love the concept of going up and ordering - then sitting down and having your food brought to you. The staff at the Ocala location is amazing. They are some of the nicest people. The managers are all great. Brian, the GM of TF in Ocala is SO incredible. They make you WANT to come there and eat. Their food is great and their sauces are awesome.

“The best Tacos on Ocala”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Great Tacos, with a selection of dozens of pepper sauces, mild to very hot. Tuesdays is a 2 for 1 sale on Tacos, and the place is usually buzzing on that day.
