“Awesome modern Mexican food”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Taco Fresco provides something you don't find that often with traditional Mexican restaurants - bright, bold flavors from fresh ingredients. It's nice to have a restaurant that puts a new spin on a cuisine that tends to be the almost exactly the same, no matter what community you're in (not that that's always a bad thing). We'll be coming back here a lot!

“Authentic gem in a small town”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Have eaten here 3 times and the food is consistently excellent. I've had fish tacos in San Diego and Hawaii and these are as good or better - and with fresh mango! Not fast food - you order at the counter and may have to wait a bit - but the food is made from scratch. They even make their own tortillas! Guacamole is to die for. Try the aqua fresco of the day - water blended with fresh fruit - delicious. Fresh salsa bar. Run by a local family from Mexico - owner has been a chef in different areas of the U.S. and came back to Whitewater. Servings aren't huge but prices are inexpensive and quality is excellent. I love this little restaurant!

“Great New Restaurant in Whitewater”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Taco Fresco is a new bright and airy restaurant in downtown Whitewater. Their fresh and innovative approaches to traditional Mexican fare were very well received by our group of five. After a delicious quacamole appetizer ( it was the best I've had since a trip to Mexico!), all of our entrees were freshly prepared and served with a smile.

Thoroughly good Mexican fare at very reasonable prices and a great addition to downtown Whitewater growing stable of good restaurants!

“Fresh, tasty, modern”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Taco Fresco is a new restaurant in Whitewater and joins several other Mexican restaurants, but with a decidedly unique menu and atmosphere. We keep coming back for the fresh fish tacos which are enhanced with fresh mango slices and a tasty sauce and served on homemade corn tortillas. We enjoy various of the sauces for chips as we await our entrees. Today we indulged ourselves with a terrific piece of tres leches cake, moist and light, served with fresh strawberries. The atmosphere is modern, with some high tables with high stools and some regualr tables with chrome chairs, all very cmfortable. The whole place is light and airy. There is a bit of a noise level when several tables are filled nearby, but that did not interrupt our conversations. One orders at the counter at the mid-point of the restaurant, pays and then enjoys chips and awaits a great taste treat!
