Oh, where do I begin? I lived in the Des Moines metro area for almost 25 years,and this place is the best, by far, taco joint around. My dad worked for the dmpd back in the 70's when the little old lady opened up her taco shop. He said he and other patrolmen would go get 10 tacos for a dollar and they were sure something special. He recalls her rolling out the tortillas and frying then right there on the spot with a smile on her face.

Flash forward decades later, and its still a great place to go. They've since expanded and have multiple locations, but you will all find that fresh-made Mexican taste you crave. The Ankeny location isn't as authentic, but when you go down to the original, it's still just as original. My only qualm is that they are closed on Sundays. Whenever I visit from Denver, I make a point to get some tasty tacos!

Tasty Tacos never deviates from the way they prepare their dishes. The flavors are truly original. What sets them apart from other Mexican restaraunts has got to be the way they prepare their tacos. They use flour tortillas slightly fried enough to puff up, crisp on the outside and tender in the center and just enough fillings to satisfy even the most hungriest of appetites. A family owned business that seems to stay consistent with what works.

Best flour taco in the world. I have been eating these tacos since 1965. Tacos have not changed
taste just the same today as they did in 1965.

Might not be a fancy atmosphere, but the puffy tacos are addictive, not like you'd find anywhere else. Reasonable prices and great hot sauce too. Has a small town, family friendly feeling and a real tradition in Des Moines.

They have always been the best! Great service, value and food! They need to put a location in Altoona!
