“Anyone can do better at home”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

3 of us went for dinner on a sunday night. We were the first ones there and no-one else but it was only 5pm

y the time our meals came out around 7.30 it was more than half full.

All our 3 meals came out at the same time, 3 different orders but they all looked the same!

The meals didnt inlcude guacamole or sour cream - we had to pay extra, BUT they were 3 plates of runny fatty brown stuff.

Im not sure how you can get a plate of brown gloop from burritos and cheese but they managed it.

Dont bother make your own at home and not pay $90 for it.

“Slow Service & Expensive for Microwaved Food”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We ate there with the family and they only had 1 staff working and had to call in back up when it got busy, our drinks took forever to arrive and food even took longer.
The price of $25 for a main Mexican is a bit high for microwaved food and rice.
They also played Australian hits of the 80’s in a Mexican restaurant.

“Nice environment, tasty food, but rather expensive.”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

No complaints about the food quality, or the service... but it is fairly expensive for what it is - $25 for fajitas?

“Best Mexican Ever!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

I have had the pleasure of frequenting this restaurant for nearly 15 years. It has changed hands a few times during that period, but obviouslt the receipes have been well docunmented as the level of food has never once changed, I've been living interstate for the last 10 years and every single trip home I have always made a point of visiting - sometimes twice if we can fit it in.
Being Mexican is one of my fav foods I've tried many restaurants throughout Australia but never have I found one that comes close to Taco Villa. It is an icon in Devonport and can't believe there aren't more rave reviews on here as I know they have a loyal customer base. If you are ever in town, do yourself a favour. Highly recommend their famous chicken fajitas!!
