Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

You have to know your way around Galesburg to find the restaurant, but they serve great Mexican food at low prices. Limited seating capacity due to Corona can make it a challenge, so arrive early. The staff is friendly, efficient and attentive. In the past,...they served salsa in plastic squeeze bottles. They currently bring it in small plastic cups. I had no trouble getting more.More

I think this place is really good because of their simplicity and the prices. You can get 5 tacos as a meal and it is a steal of a deal. The place was packed on a Friday night and they usually have ribs, but you...have to be there early because they run out fast.More

Just hands down perfection when you want a fresh bite to eat. Delicious tacos & enchiladas served in a perfect hidden away location. It is heaven for the locals.

Tasty food at a reasonable price. What more could one ask? You can have corn or flour shells cooked in several different ways. Quick and friendly service.

When the parking lot is full, the food must be good. Plenty to choose from, and all of it good. I ordered the hard shell tacos and a quesadilla and Jack himself delivered.

Jack and the crew have been feeding the locals for decades. It is one of the gems of Galesburg. It gets very busy sometimes so plan accordingly.

Situated in a house that was changed into the restaurant this Mexican place serves great food! If you get there when they first open at 5 you'll see most of the tables filled. They are only open for supper Wednesday-Sunday and lunch on Fridays. You...can't go wrong with anything on the menu!More

Nestled in a residential neighborhood surrounded by rails, Taco Hideout is a legendary family-owned restaurant with reasonably priced delicious Mexican fare, great Margaritas and waitresses who run their legs off, but still give personalized service. It's the type of place where you can go alone...or with a group and feel comfortable. You're bound to run into someone you know every time you visit, often someone who included it as a must-do on a trip back to his or her hometown. Don't be surprised if the waitresses call you by name and the owner drops by your table. One of our favorite hometown haunts.More

Love this hole in the wall, gem of a place. Prices are very reasonable. I love when I can make it to the Hide out. Their flour tacos, beans and chips and their homemade sauce are the best!!!

Since I moved 50 miles from Taco Hideout in Galesburg, I plan my visits to Galesburg around the opening hours of Taco Hideout. I like that there are several options on the type of taco shell to choose from. Where I live now the only...choice is the hard, preformed boxed store bought variety. Plus the price is great, $5.99 for 5 Tacos. This is my Taco go to place.More

If you only have time to eat at one restaurant, this is the place. They have the best tacos, enchiladas, and homemade hot sauce I've ever eaten--and yes I've eaten in Mexico. Don't let the location or outside deter you--it adds to the charm. Family...run and so many locals eat here once a week.More
