Awesome food. Limited variety, but all of it is fresh and delicious. Love the wet burritos and tostadas.

The food is terrific! Combo plate #8 rice instead of salad is what I get and it's delicious. Very friendly staff and top quality food.

Taco House is our go to restaurant for more years than I care to remember. It's simple Tex-Mex fast food. It is always good and always consistent. You're not going to get short rib tacos with house pickled red onions on a hand patted tortilla here. I don't think the menu has changed in 30 years. The combinations are served... More

The best time to visit is for Taco Tuesday. Great food set in a fast-food setting. Always busy and easy access. People here enjoy their jobs and pleasing their customers.

When we got in the door, was greated right away. Server was very friendly, polite, and professional. Prices very reasonable. Served within a few minutes. Food beyond tasty. Portions large. We drove a few hours to eat. Returned a few different times. I even brought burritos home to freeze. I would recommend to a single diner or a family.

Great local gem. Excellent quality of food. My fussy kid was all over the tacos and wet burrito. Menu is limited compared to some other places, but they have enough variety to suit most tastes. Loved everything and will be returning for sure.

Very good food served in a very utilitarian way.. Paper plates are the norm, the food is the attraction not the presentation.

Wonderful ''Local'' Mexican food. Very tasty ''Cheap'' eats!! .. Always a favorite of ours when we are on the east side of town! The Wet Burrito is very good and is $5.00 bux or less? Lots of very cute girls work here! LOL..

OK, I really don't get the bad ratings on here at all. This is a fast food taco place, not meant to be an authentic, sit-down, Mexican Restaurant. Honestly, once you have been to the Southwest of this country, you realize that all the "Authentic" Mexican places in Michigan pale by comparison anyway. Taco House is a local favorite of... More

So this is in no way even close to authentic Mexican cuisine, but I don't believe that's what they were going for. This food is awesome, the staff is amazing. And they must get treated well as most of them have been there for years! great food and value.
