Tacos and Burritos are easy to slap together - and most of the ones I buy taste slapped together. The Taco Stand, however, has the best I've ever come across. It's the little subtleties and perfected combinations of cheese/salsa/sauce/beans/beef that does it. The Taco Stand has been at it for over 30 years and they do it right! I love... More

The food here is really good and priced reasonably. The staff is low-key and friendly and the place is usually quiet and pleasant, for a somewhat spartan, eat in or take out counter service restaurant The only improvement I would suggest is that the corn chips that they use for the nachos are not very high quality. Just don't order... More

Best things are grilled chicken quesadilla with onions/peppers and a small cheese dip to dip it in, mexican pizza, fried/buffalo chicken tacos and burritos and some other things are good too.

Good fish taco that was full of flavor with bright red cabbage slaw. Warm, tasty chips. Black beans and rice as a side was yummy and hot (temperature). Friendly staff. The person who took our order was kind and asked great questions about what we wanted on our food (details not found on the menu).

Family visited for lunch. Business was good, but we did not have to wait for a table after placing our order at the counter. Food came out quickly. Combo with two tacos, chips and drink was about $6. Food was good. Salsa could be ordered in hot hot, hot or mild. Tacos came either crisp or soft in either beef... More

I was so happy to be able to get a Sancho. It's not on the posted menu and was always my favorite - like a Deluxe Burrito, but without sour cream. So good. Such a great place for lunch. Everyone is friend and the food is economical and delicious.

Fresh food made fast. Customized items with no complaints. Extra hot isn't all that hot and the mild sauce is the tastiest - I get both on my burritos. Lemonade is made in house from lemons!

The T Stand was a multi time per week visit when we were in college. Since we were in Athens for a visit, I had a hankering for Taco Stand. It was so good. The thing I always ordered was no longer on the menu by the same name. The guy behind the counter was very friendly and patient while... More

Loved eating here when I was in college. It was a regular stop.....just went back for the first time in years. The good news is - the inside looks much better and cleaner. The bad news - the food was absolutely terrible. I ordered a chicken burrito. It was gooey and cold on the inside. I couldn't even finish it.... More

Went here on a recommendation for dinner. Wow! This place is a wreck. The ONLY thing good was the white cheese dip. Seriously. It seemed that most of the staff cared more about the product they were smoking than the product they were serving. It's a shame the owner wouldn't care more about his reputation.
