Food is incredible, not to mention the excellent service! Did I mention the margaritas? Will have to here weekly!

My favorite Mexican place. Make sure you try the New Cut location. Staff is prompt and friendly and food better than most other places.

If you're expecting fine dining, this place is like going to someone's home. The Mexican food has such a very good different taste. It's home-cooking! The staff is always pleasant. I've been to many Mexican restaurants, this is very unique. Love the sauces for the chips too.

I have been coming here for years and have since moved to Mt. Washington and my fiancé and I continue to make the drive. No El Tarasco compares to this one!

The food is always good, and the staff is always friendly. I suggest this place over the nearby El Nopal.

A good, friendly neighborhood restaurant that provides consistently good food with quality service. We dine there often and have always been pleased. The atmosphere is quiet and friendly. The menu is pretty standard, but many of the dishes rise above the competition.

My booth seat was ripped and in need of repair. When you see this, you wonder about things that are not as visible!! My bill was $20 - $10 for the... More

My family loves Mexican food, and you get reasonable prices for the food here. We don't visit here as often as others ini town but when we do we have a enjoyable experience.

This place has the best chips & salsa and everything I've ever eaten there has been great. Service is good (feel free to speak Spanish) and the value is awesome. Get the frequent dining card. It is the best inexpensive Mexican food I have found in Louisville.
