Local restaurant just outside of downtown. Nothing fancy, but good Mexican food. Decor is colorful. Service is prompt. They craft a pretty good margarita.

Tacos Mexico used to have a great kitchen and some of the dishes were really good and well made. While still a good place for lunch, even dinner, I'd place it as the #2 in the Apex area.

I had the beef enchilada and my husband had the seafood soup, (forgot what it was called), but they were both great. Service was great as well!

Clean restaurant, good food, fast service and reasonably priced. It's not too busy there. The meals and salsa are home made and authentic Mexican cuisine. They have been in business for more than 10 years. My wife had the supreme Burrito and I had the Combo #5 with shredded beef. Had our meal brought to us in about 8 min.... More

Everyone searches for the hidden gems in restaurants. These places look scary from the outside, but are amazing on the inside. Tacos Mexico is one of these Gems. I have eaten at Tacos Mexico weekly for several years. The food is always good, the servers are nice and friendly, and they get to know you and treat you like family.... More

OMG! This place has the absolute BEST Mexican food in the area, hands down. If, you like real Mexican. If your tastes run more to Taco Bell, you may prefer someplace a bit more Americanized. My particular favorite is their chicken with Verde sauce (please don't ask me to spell it, I can barely pronounce it when ordering it, lol!)... More

The name of the place is Tacos Mexico, although their credit card receipts and this Trip Advisor listing show Taco Mexico. We had lunch on Easter Sunday since it was not busy. I had a fajita, my wife had spinach quesadilla. Both were good, though we've had better at other nearby Mexican restaurants. The decor was simple and tasteful, the... More

Great food downtown. Good Mexican food great service. The prices were so reasonable for dinner mid week. Service was attentive but not too chatty like some places. Plenty of good and just a great dinner out!

I know it doesn't look like much from the road but trust me, it's definitely worth it. The food is much more authentic than any other restaurant in the area. Delish!

Food had no flavor. Very disappointed, ordered two separate meals to go. Homemade chips were very fresh with salsa.
