“great value and quick”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Not gourmet, but fast and economical lunch. The servings are large and the quality is as good or better than many other Mexican restaurants charging considerably more money.

“OK if you like NORTHWEST style Mexican food- no spice, bland”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

People I know that grew up away from good Mexican food love it. I grew up banging around Mexico in the back of a pickup, and in Vegas, So Cal, Arizona, etc... For me, it is waaaaay too bland and totally not authentic. Perpetually underspiced.

“Quick, good, low-key . . .”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

They call it the Taco Stand for a reason. It is small and lacks any ambiance whatsoever. It makes up for all of this by being reasonably priced with very good quality food. The menu is modest and caters to a well established local clientele who adore the food and the owner Gene. If you are looking for a lunch spot for a quick and very good meal this is the place for you. If you want a waitress, comfortable seating and nice artwork go somewhere else. (Amalias?) If you venture in I recommend the Mole de Pollo which is the Monday special. It is exceptional!! Furthermore, the red sauce is quite possibly the best I have ever had. I seriously get withdrawels if I don't have any for an extended period of time. Go and enjoy, you won't be disappointed.

“Taco Stand is a hidden gem.”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

Only one review for Taco Stand & it's negative! No way! I love the Stand, and so do most local Bend folks. It's located in a weird residential spot, and takes cash only, but as long as you can get past both of those things, it's well worth it! The nachos are delicious, with or without meat. Some of the burritos are a bit boring, but if you're the kind of person who orders a BRC & expects something phenomenal, maybe Mexican food isn't for you.
