“Its good food but its still fast food”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Yes Tacilisa does great food but should it really be rated the 8th best restaurant in Croydon, will we be including Mcdonalds next?
Tacolisa is predominantly a take away and delivery food supplier with a few laminated tables to sit at, in no way would you go here for a sit down meal.
The food however is excellent limited as it is to four varieties of burritos (not tacos) and quesadillas although the nachos aren't as good as ones you can make yourself using an Old Paso kit from the supermarket.
Staff are friendly and accomodating and this venture deserves to succeed and flourish.

“Blazing a trail for decent Mexican style food in Croydon...”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Agree with many of the reviews here that the food is excellent value for money and so much better than the run of the mill fast food places. These guys really put their heart and soul into the food and it is a great place to visit. Just wish I was in the area more often! The food is not authentically Mexican but that doesn't matter. It is wholesome, filling and moreish! You really can't go wrong by dropping by and ordering a quesidilla or burrito.

“Amazing. The best place to eat in Croydon period.”
Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

I have never wanted a business to succeed so much then tacolisa. The owners are the nicest, friendliest people you will ever meet. I work nearby and there is no doubt that i'll be popping out on my lunch break every time to tacolisa. The quesadillas, the tacos are immense, perfectly made and to your liking as well. Unbelievably satisfying and the nachos are the best nachos I've ever had and I've eaten nachos everywhere. Huge plus that it's halal as well. Place is clean, immaculate and a fun care free atmosphere. The staff make you feel very welcome. Please just keep it up and I hope to see many more chains open. Best Mexican food ever! :)

“Quick lunch with Guacamole”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Great place for lunch. Remember - it is a bar kind of place, so everything is very informal, yet of a good standard.
Quick and helpful service
Good and tasty food, generous portions, affordable price
