Food Review: Taco Loco


Photo Credit: Evan P. Cordes, Creative Commons 2.0 Generic

Taco Loco is a good restaurant for families or to go out at night with friends. The service is good and the atmosphere is appropriate.

When I first walked in, I noticed a bar with TV’s so it is more of an adult restaurant once happy hour on the weekend comes around but its never out of hand so any family could be there comfortably.

My waiter was very quick and always made sure my drink was filled.  They never forgot about my table and she was very friendly.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was relaxed and welcoming plus there were some Christmas decorations up.  I ordered the Carne Asada Burrito which came with beans and rice, and as we waited, we got chips and salsa.

Something to watch out for is the Habanero sauce.  It is very spicy so only use a little on chips and food because it goes a long way.  My food was made fairly fast and it came out hot and was very tasty and flavorful.

The meat was amazing and the ingredients were very fresh and sensational.  In my burrito, I had pork, salsa, rice and beans, guacamole, corn and a green sauce, most likely chili verde.  The sides of rice and beans reminded me of a homemade recipe and were perfectly paired with my main dish.

Their menu has lots of options to choose from such as salads, burritos, enchiladas and tacos plus many more.  Most everything on the menu comes with rice and beans or other sides that you can choose from.

Also, the kids menu is bigger than most places and has more options to pick from.  You can also do a plate with only one item, a la carte, which is nice if the main plates are too big.

Something interesting about this menu is that there is an option for party trays for big events.  So you could order a big tray and take it home to use for a football night or birthday.

Also, they provide a breakfast menu which is available only on weekends and holidays.  I have tried the Frank’s Special which has rice, bell peppers, onions, sausage, al pastor and shrimp and three eggs.

It’s a huge amount of food but all of the flavors together create a mouth watering taste that leaves you wanting more.

The other breakfast items are fairly common such as eggs with sausage and cheese. If  you just want a small snack they have a section on the menu called “tacos y minis” specifically for smaller options.

The pricing is reasonable for the amount of food they give. It is more expensive than chipotle and about the same as El Taqueria Sombrero.
