You go here for the loose meat taco burgers. By the bag. Eaten in the car. The flavor is old school "mom used to make at home" style Americano Mexican; complete with shredded lettuce and shredded cheese. It's a terrific local place and get a...More

I really wanted to give this place a good review because it's a mom and pop place. I ordered the deluxe burrito for 2.99 and I expected lots of cheese and sour cream but it was just ground beef and lettuce. That's my fault because...More

Taco Town has been a part of Carthage for many years. It is a hometown style of food that many Carthaginians have grown up loving. Be sure to try the cheese dip and chips!

Carthage is a town with a sizeable Mexican population and multiple Mexican restaurants - which is why my first visit to Taco Town was such a surprise. It did not compare favorably to Taco Bell. Taco shells and chips were freshly made and quite good,...More

Never again.... just say no. Meat resembled dog food & cheese sauce was like baby food. Service was nice, but thats where the "good" stopped.
