I come from the Mexican food capital of Nebraska. After moving to southern Indiana and now Kentucky, I've been dying for some decent Mexican food. I've tried everything I could and tried to have an open mind. I always order the chimichanga just to be on the safe side. Kind of hard to mess that up. Today my husband and... More

We are from a city that doesn't allow smoking in restaurants at all, so we were taken aback when asked if we wanted "smoking" or "non-smoking" when we arrived. We should have just left, but we innocently asked for non-smoking. Well, the entire place reeks of cigarette smoke. There really is NO non-smoking area, just like there is no non-peeing... More

This small Mexican restaurant has been in Burnside/Somerset for many years now. The food is not fabulous, but it is very good. They are also very economical. However, the best thing I can say for El Taxco is how consistent it is, year after year. When you order a menu item, it is always the same as before. The staff... More

This is one Mexican restaurant that has not only good Mexican food but great ribs and seafood. The shrimp I had wre the best in Somerset. Good Marguiritas and selection of beers.

We got there late and were greeted warmly. We only had a couple of beers and tamales but you can tell by the tamales.

Food is great. Tables and Chairs are very colorful and become the topic of conversations while eating.

Ate there once and I disliked what I ordered and when I got it I wasn't sure what it was so I never returned. Service was very slow, too.

We always have a good experience at El Taxco. The service is spot on. The food is excellent, (try the Carne Asada tacos, outstanding), and the prices are very reasonable. Be warned, the large draft beer is really big. Probably about three normal sized beers. Can't wait until we go again.
