“Unique Flour Tacos”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We were visiting Des Moines and looking for a no-chain fast food restaurant and found it. We ordered a flour taco for $3 and it was very unique and so was the sauce that came with it. The corn taco was $2 and was also very good, but not as big as the flour taco. We also ordered flour nachos for $3 which were good, but overpriced. At that price, get another flour taco, which we did, twice.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

I was scepital at first, but was very happy with it. The rice is excellent never had rice this good. The flour tacos were also very good. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area that is looking for some good Mexican fairly quickly.

“A Must in Des Moines!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

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!

“Tacos Family Style”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

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.

“Tacos”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

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.
