Mostly drive-thru,but good eat-in too! Same family owned, and taco meat recipe is guarded for over 40 yrs.! No other places come close! Have even added in other towns over the years,even Evansville location! Nacho cheese sauce actually is very flavor able and spiced! This place is tops!! Sauces are great-hot is not killer hot. Actually put quite a bit... More

My wife and I went to Princeton, IN for a reunion and she kept on saying that we had to go and get a Sancho. I had not idea what she was talking about, but went along with it. I am glad that I did! It was amazing! If you are ever in Princeton, IN, you must stop in and... More

When my children come back home for a visit, they always make at least one trip to Taco T. Usually it's in the car for the trip home also. My grandchildren love it too. We highly recommend for casual dining.

Not that their menu items aren't perfectly delicious, but I brought my own doritos and just asked for three scoops of beef and four scoops of nacho cheese and they gave it to me. Greatest customer service ever! Where else can you get just an ingredient served by itself?

Taco Tierra's unique seasonings and their signature Sanchos have made this place one of the most popular in the area. The Sanchos are a soft tortilla wrapped around seasoned ground beef or chicken smothered in a sauce available in varying degrees of hotness from "fairly mild" to "Hot,hot, hot". My only complaint would be that sometimes the meat filling could... More

We crave this food when we are not in Indiana. My in laws know that I will stop here on our way into town before going anywhere. They have changed their food a bit over the years but we still enjoy the food. We never dine in because the seating and bathrooms are not good at all. But we just... More

We love our local Taco Tierra restaurants! We usually get a combo meal which is a lot of food! I am a sancho lover, husband more of a burrito guy. Great Apple cinnamon strips for our sweet tooth!

There is a reason they had to expand their drive thru line and add seating in the restaurant part. It's fast food American Mexican food. Inexpensive greasy spoon version of a local's take on Mexican. I love it and my favorite is the beef taco with extra hot sauce. It really is my favorite taco I have had anywhere but... More

Always busy. Ate here for lunch. Nice clean building. Staff very friendly. The folks really love the 'fish tacos' when they have them. I found the food to be very average in taste. Portions are good, just very average meal.
