So the building needs work, but let's pretend that it adds to the charm. You can't go wrong with any steak dish here. It's fresh steak cooked to order, not like the typical Mexican restaurant fajita steak. My favorite is the steak rice bowl, topped with half queso and half sour cream sauce.

Went here several times, at times the best place ever, at worst mediocre. Oddly enough had the best times here on weekends when it was just a few friends and the place was empty. The staff are super laid back and the food is good. The margaritas are meh, but they will put vodka in them. Which always wins in... More

Had their chicken fajita nachos and my husband had pork nachos. The food was very good and let's not forget the hot sauce was great. Service was just like food. Great place!

The price is a little high, although the lunch specials are well priced each day, but you get a lot of food and their take on the different tacos is just darn good. Plus, I love their salsa as well. They have nice outdoor covered seating with a bar area, or indoors. We have never sat indoors though. Decent beer... More

Personally, I go to Jaco's Tacos very often. The best thing to ever happen to this place is the former waiter, Dustin. Since he's been gone, the service has been subpar at best. Nevertheless, my coworkers and I like to visit regularly. My last visit was awful and even that is an understatement. I have never been so disrespected in... More

Good food, not $15-18 for 3 tacos good, though. I had the fajita combo tacos and the shrimp one was very good. The others just good. Wife had the shrimp enchiladas and they were pretty good as well. Booths are nice and spacious than most restaurants. Our waiter was way less than good. No salt or pepper on tables. No... More

I always like Jaco's. The food has always been very good and plenty of it. I took a friend there recently who was eating healthy and he was able to get tuna tacos and grilled vegetables. He as impressed with the food and atmosphere. I like sitting outside, inside is a little noisy for me. The only compliant I have... More

If you are looking for white table cloths and candles with waiters in tuxes, drive on by, you won't find it here! If you want some good tex mex food with ample portions then this is the place for you. The salsa is about the best in the area and it's free! I had the tacos, three of them that... More
