We come to this place on a regular basis, we love everything in here. Service is outstanding! Our most favorite is honey habanero Baja boneless chicken, Oreo and regular churros, my new fave is sweet sopapillas, and our last, but not least fave is their raspberry iced tea.

I love Taco John's food. I have tried everything on their menu and all I can say it was delicious. They have daily specials one can't complain about. The SWEET TEA the best in town. It alone will make you toes curl it's that GOOD! You will have to try it yourself.. but I am positive you will love it.

They updated the outside signs but did not correct the greasy food. They have busy drive thru but my order is always incorrect. Also ambient music inside is too loud. I have asked them to turn it down but they don't. I have fish allergy and can't eat there when busy, because they fry fish in all vats

obviously the food is all processed and taste like it, lets just say the family made a lot of visits to the bathroom after eating there. Then heard from locals they call the place sh#t taco for a reason.

Yep my husband and I ate there for the first time on Saturday evening and my poor husband has been throwing up every few hours. Not to mention the hershey squirts, more like blowouts. So sad because we were excited to eat there. Told the ER that as well and they will be contacting the state for them to be... More

I have to start by saying I love Taco John's, but this had the nicest workers. They went way above the call of duty and the to top that the owner was working just as hard with her team. Now the decor may be on the older side, but this place was spotless. Their were employee on their hands and... More

The Taco Bravo and the Taco Burger are amazing. You can order Nacho Cheese Sauce with your Potato Ole's and you can't beat them. I always stop at this location when I am traveling through the area. The service is always very good.

Of course, it cannot be compared to a sit down restaurant. However, it is on par with a restaurant like Taco Time. The employees try very hard to accommodate guests. We usually eat their crunchy corn shell tacos, which contain much more food than a Taco Bell, at a comparable cost. We eat here about 3 times a month as... More
