Small building, this is the meaning of hole in the wall. 8-9 booths to sit in, and great food. No nonsense menu with your basic of Mexican food that is quick and good. The crispy tacos are really good and the refried beans and rice sides are tasty. Prices are really reasonable too.

I've only had their been tostadas (I'm vegetarian) but I have to say they don't have a lot of flavor. The beans are right from a can, the tomatoes are washed out flavorless and that leaves iceberg lettuce, sigh. the salsa adds to the flavor of course and I use it quite liberally to get some type of taste. perhaps...

Just across the river, from downtown Saint Paul -- could be Nuevo Laredo. But just another cool aspect of the West Side. This restaurant at first blush, is very funky. The exterior has that mid-70's fast food design, but its authentic Mexican cook to order inside. Over the years, have tried almost everything on the menu, all muy bien! The... More

Best homemade taco`s in town. Golden fried flour tacos with the homemade salsa can`t be beat. The Taco house has fast friendly service. They get you in and out in no time.

A notch above Taco Bell, this place offers cheap tacos and fast food service. Located in the heart of the Sun District near Cesar Chavez St in Saint Paul, there are better Mexican style restaurants near by but if you are on the go and need fast food, you can satisfy your taco cravings here.

Wow, I see a lot of misplaced reviews for this fast food taco place. Note that anyone mentioning buffet or restaurant is talking about Boca Chica the sit down restaurant across the street, not the Boca Chica taco house. Boca Chica Taco House is/was our go-to taco place. Loved their tamales, sopes, fried flour tacos, bean tostadas, and papas burritos.... More

We eat at Taco House quite often. It's almost fast food with all of the flavors you want from a Mexican restaurant. The prices are excellent. Husband loves the homemade salsa which is too hot for me.

Food is ordered at the counter and then optional sit in dining or take out. The salsa bar with help yourself portions are the main appeal for spicing up your lunch or dinner!
