I have not had a burrito any better - OPEN BURRITO: No tortilla, lettuce, rice, cheese, pico de gallo, beans (black, pinto or mixed) and your choice of filling - it is that simple - you can eat-in but I don't recommend it unless you are there at a slow time - like 2pm on Wednesday :).

This hidden gem of a Mexican restaurant is outstanding. I ordered a chicken burrito, Pico de gallo and black beans. The meal comes tortilla chips. There is a salsa bar in which you choose from 10 different styles. Very tasty food; perhaps the best Mexican food that I've had. Not the best or inviting décor.

This small, crowded-at-lunchtime family-owned restaurant recently reopened. I had not been the first time around, mostly because I live without a car on Portland's peninsula and it takes some effort to get here. I see why people love it. The food comes up quick, it is authentic Mexican, and it's inexpensive. I like that they play traditional old-school Mexican music... More

I have never been to Mexico so can't compare Taco-Trio's food to the 'real deal' but suspect the food at Taco-Trio would compare very favorably (it is the real deal in my mind) - I have gotten hooked on their Burrito's and tried their New Fish Taco - now I have a problem - guess I will just have to...

I went one time with a friend. The food was somewhere better than average but short of very good. This is a small neighborhood restaurant so there isn't much authentic atmosphere at all. Prices were reasonable. Would I go back again? Possibly but probably not considering there are so many restaurants in the Greater Portland area to try.

Very good tacos, unique flavors and combinations. It's a very popular place, so sometimes there's a wait. I will definitely be going back for the tacos. The fish tacos and vegetarian ones are the best, according to me.

Good Mexican food and fast friendly service. What you would expect from a fast paced take out serve yourself restaurant.

When moving here from San Diego, California we were struggling trying to find decent Mexican food. We found this place and it's like being back home. This is the real deal, the food is great, and fresh, and the burritos are huge. it's a small place, but they do have seating inside. I would love to see outside seating. I... More

Mexican food and Maine is a contradiction in terms, but this place makes it great. Tacos, tamales, all the usual with a great salsa bar and an intimate, off the grid setting. We love it here!
