They are expanding!!!! Love this family owned place. Always a good meal. At times it can be quite busy. Very popular. If you're in the area you must stop by. They have many of your favorite Mexican dishes/plates and a la cart items. Prices are very reasonable. It's tucked away in a shopping center/strip mall. Well worth your visit, you... More

The charbroiled carne asada is a favorite as are the special skirt steak tacos. Taco Tuesday is always a hit. They will serve you crispy or soft tortillas on request. The tostada with black beans...

Our friends introduced us to TM and we LOVE their food. They serve great Mexican cuisine and it's a casual place to relax and have lunch or dinner. Sometimes we order take out for family get togethers. It's hard to name my fave dish because all tastes great! Can't wait to be soon! Keep up the great work and take... More

Just had breakfast / lunch here and everything was excellent. I had the machaca breakfast burrito. They suggested a mild red sauce on top with some grated cheese and so glad I followed their recommendation. Delicious! It had eggs, machaca, beans, rice, grilled onions and peppers and cheese. What a great combo and breakfast is served all day. My husband... More

My husband and I each ordered two, but my husband thought they were so good he ordered two more and he NEVER does that! Don't even get me started on the salsa... More

Taco Mesa is our go to place when we want great healthy Mexican food. Besides their regular menu they always have daily specials. They also have fresh juices made daily. Our favorite is the watermelon juice!

Consistently delicious. Best shrimp tacos in town. They have a really good fresh fruit salad that you can put honey over to pump it up. Big menu, and friendly help. Not a fancy place, but so good.

This isn't a typical Mexican food restaurant. It is more of a healthy American style Mexican food. I have been there a few times and some of there food is really good and some isn't really what I like. My favorite item is the Carnitas Torta, it is one of the best Tortas I have ever had. But there chicken... More
