I've been eating at the Taco Stand since they first opened! This isn't the original, that's the one at the corner of Milledge and Prince. But I like this one better. Easier to park here. And I think the food is more consistent here (it's...More

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!
