“Best Mexican Food I've had in London”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Awesome food, service, and people! Since living away from the US, I've craved proper Mexican food and this spot definitely does it with a twist.

Don't expect homestyle So Cal Mexican, but do expect something comparable, or better. Their tacos are basically burritos, and the flavor is rich and awesome. It's not really a sit down (there are two tables for seating), but the people working there make you feel right at home, and their rewards card definitely makes you come back for more.

I'd recommend anything with chicken and going for their deal if you're not going by yourself.

“It's good but not that good!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Based on the many enthusiastic reviews here we went to eat at Tacolisa. The menu is limited to a few tacos and quesadillas. The food was tasty. But it's a fast food joint rather than a restaurant. As long as you bear that in mind you won't be disappointed.

“Best food in Croydon.....by a mile.”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Have been to tacolisa ALOT since finally discovering it at the end of last year, best thing I've ever done. They are open all day and until very late at the weekends. 10000% better than a dodgy kebab or some chicken cottage. The food is always fresh and tasty, you can have everything made to your exact specifications and nothing is too much trouble for the great staff. Ive converted alot of my mates from doner & chips on the way home, and tacolisa is a guarenteed good way to end the evening. You could pop in for lunch and still want to come in later. They are great value for money, and always playing great music. Defo recommend this place.

“Good for Croydon and friendly service but have visited better Mexican restaurants”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

It's good to see a place like this in Croydon so I don't really want to knock it, The food is average quality, would be good if there were a bigger variety and the meat had more of a depth of flavour in it's seasoning and the way it is cooked as it is a bit on the bland side. They have got the right idea on the delivery front, definitely, just wish the food were tastier.
