The potato Oles are great....seasoned just right crisp on the outside and creamy in the middle....I can eat em till I can't breath... The sweet tea is good... Everything else is just average.. But hey it's worth going for the tea and potato oles....

Great prices, great service, great good. Very similar to Taco Bell, probably more selection and like the salsa bar to choose from.

Totally the only item we have ordered here for literally years. Every time we're close by we try stop in for the super potato ole dish. They've downsized the platter over the last few years. But tastes just as good as always.

Taco John's! Just downloaded the app, tried to use a discount for free potato oles.. Totally locked up their cash register. To compensate for the wait, they gave us a more expensive item for free. The service is friendly and the food is super good!

We ate there twice while on vacation. The food was great and not pricey. The service was good for a fast food joint and the woman that took our order told us a couple great places to visit in the area. She even wrote out the directions for us. I would definitely go back.

I love Taco johns growing up in Wyoming and SD this is is a favorite . Tacos delicious with lots of cheesy real cheddar cheese , I love potatoe oles with cheese sauce. Husband enjoyed the burrito and my kids ate it up . I will miss you until my next time. Puts Taco Bell vomit to Shame.
