We've been to Taco multiple times over the last several years, and when we first started going, the food was excellent. The seating was a little dated, but the food more than made up for it. This brings me to our most recent visit. We...More

We went for a birthday dinner. The food was good. The margaritas were excellent. For even better food go to Los Rancheros in DeKalb.

This place has come a long way. Owners keep updating. The outdoor seating area looks fantastic and so festive! love the sliding front windows! Menu is pretty much authentic as possible for this midwest corn town.

We dropped in for lunch when another option had magically transformed into a bank (WTH?) This is on State Street, which is the main drag through Downtown Sycamore. It is a nice location - the can open doors in the front to the street, which...More
