Reviewed 23 October 2017

I visited on a Monday afternoon for lunch. The weather was beautiful, so I wanted to sit outside. I stood at the "podium" and waited for someone to greet me. And I stood, and I stood. I saw several servers inside notice me, so I waited just a few minutes more before I gave up and went inside. There was no "seat yourself" signing outside, but when I opened the door, a server did acknowledge me right away and told me to sit anywhere. I decided to sit inside and things turned around quickly. My server acknowledged me immediately and brought water and chips/salsa quickly.

I was going to try the fajitas, but after seeing that they were almost $25, and most likely much more food than I could eat at lunch, I decided to try the chicken flauta appetizer instead. I'm so glad that I made that decision! The flautas came out quickly and the portion size was HUGE! They were delicious and I was barely able to finish them. I left stuffed and happy for just over $10. Once I went inside, the level of service was perfect! I will be back.

This place was just okay. We got a new waiter I think and he may have been overwhelmed with 7 people and other tables. Many items came out wrong and some appetizers never came at all. Portions are hardy so probably good to share unless you’re really hungry. Rice is great and so are the bacon wrapped chicken

We went in to Taquilo's on a double date and ordered the Family Fajitas. It was SO much food! We all ate at the table, and had left overs for each couple to take home! Happy Hour Margaritas were a great addition to a yummy, budget friendly night out!

Visited this place last night with 2 kids. We don't eat Mexican a lot so needed a bit of help ordering. Our waiter was super helpful and friendly and got the food made to suit us. Food was amazing and the frozen mango margarita was to die for!
