After reading the reviews I had really high hopes. Unfortunately these high hopes weren't achieved. The rice and beans, salsa bar and chips were great but the proteins in the two dinners were bland and not all that cheap. Also the tacos didn't taste home...More

Best authentic Mexican right here in Winter Garden, we are so fortunate to have Taco Norteno as a local favorite! Make sure you try their chimichanga at least once, so light and delicious, and WOW they have the most amazing "homemade" salsas on their salsa...More

This place is now called Taco Norteno but has not changed its great commitment to value and quality. Amazing food. Worth the drive anywhere in Orlando.

Okay, this is by far THE BEST taco place in all of the Orlando metro area. I lived in Monterrey, Mexico for 11 years and spent countless meals in taco stands and restaurants. This place is legit. Authentic tacos just like south of the border....More

This little place, now called Taco Noteno, is a great hidden gem. They consistently have the freshest and tastiest, mexican food. The happy hour beer special is another attraction. Chicken tostadas are totally awesome, as is everything they serve.
