So, we've been three times and have not had anything bad. Quite the contrary! Between us, we've sampled probably a total of at least a dozen different things, so hard to remember which was best. BUT, the guac is great. The chips are FRESH! The...More

Half way through our lunch, I became cognizant of the background music, "It's Raining Tacos." This was our second lunch at this Capital Taco, and have eaten at the store in Wesley Chapel. This round I had the "Texas Flood" and the "Longboard." Both were...More

After seeing the hype, I was really looking forward to trying them out. Mediocre at best, outrageously expensive for what you get, and possibly the worst margarita I’ve ever had. (I’ve had a LOT of margaritas in my day lol). Our order had 2 errors...More

Visited about eight times since their full opening to discover the many inconsistencies of this neighborhood “gourmet” taco place. The hit-or-miss prime time lunch and dinner crowds can be avoided by ordering ahead, although that can result in soggy food. Some of the counter attendants...More

Did not know a taco could be so bad. We tried 4 different tacos and all were sub-par. The pork and shrimp both had good flavor when eaten alone, but when cover by a handful of cilantro and cheese and sitting on a greasy, undercooked...More

Hi there! Assuming you actually did stop by, thanks for stopping by and trying us out. Since you took the time to leave a review that is quite at odds with other customer feedback, and one that speaks to the value we provide as well...More

Born from the burning desire for great food and an ongoing quest for unique and authentic ingredients, Capital Tacos is the culmination of traditional Mexican cooking and regional Tex-Mex flavors. Our award-winning menu is highlighted by 25 signature chef-created items that can be had one of five ways: as a taco, burrito, rice bowl, salad or nachos. Our home-cut chips and homemade guacamole, queso and desserts are also fan favorites. It all began, in late 2013, with a cozy corner store in Land O'Lakes. But it didn't take long for the local secret that is Capital Tacos to get out. By 2015, Capital Tacos was awarded as the 2nd Best Place To Eat in Tampa & St. Petersburg by Yelp! and as a Top 3 Taco Shop in the entire United States by Foursquare/Business Insider. Soon, by popular demand, came new stores. Capital Tacos food is freshly prepared and made-from-scratch, and served in a quick, affordable, friendly way. In other words, we like to #keepitcapital.
