Would give it a 0 if possible. Have visited this restaurant several times in the past. Wife and I visited yesterday, placed our order and handed them a local flavor coupon. Only valued a 10 dollars. Was rudely told that they no longer accept coupons....More

When this first opened, it was our favorite lunch spot. Then gradually over time, the quality of the food lessened. At first, the tacos were too soft, not grilled as on our first several visits. Next, the menu was taken down from behind the register....More

We stopped here for lunch and our waiter immediately met us and indicated they had no rice due to equipment failure. What is a taco place with no rice? Well anyway, we ordered quesadillas and tacos. Their replacement was lettuce for rice! Wow!! Anyway, the...More

Stopped in for a quick bite after a game. Many choices, and salsa bar was good. You’d have trouble not finding something that suits your taste here.

Kind of like Moe's but the tacos have a good bit of meat and the quesadillas had plenty of meat and cheese unlike taco bell where you don't get much in your quesadilla. Don't get a beer here - they are $5 for just one!...More

Sure Fire Tacos and Tortilla Grill is Tex-Mex with a twist. All of our recipes and ingredients are prepared fresh daily, from our five signature salsas to our scratch-made tortillas. Our restaurant offers a casual, inviting atmosphere with an open bar and outdoor patio seating (bring Fido along to enjoy our outdoor area!). With a menu inspired by our Texas roots, we traveled the world to find unique and interesting flavors. From our sweet and spicy mango-habanero salad and al Pastor pork, marinated in fresh pineapple juice and spicy chorizo seasonings, we're bringing a little of the Lone Star state to the Columbia community. Our three favorite things? Fresh ingredients, fun atmosphere, and unique experiences. From hand-rolling our tortillas to preparing each dish made-to-order, we ensure each and every detail in order to bring out the most flavor in each offering. We've created a fun and inviting atmosphere for our team members and neighbors to enjoy -- we aim to be more than just a restaurant, we want to be a destination!
