We were looking for Mexican and wanted away from the strip after seeing how full and loud it was there. We found this place close to the many fast food places and hotels. They look like they were a steak place or the such with wagon wheels on the bottom of their booths, had only changed the tops of the... More

The food was not what we're used to for TexMex. The fajitas were good, but both servings of enchiladas were boring, plain... Neither of us ate more than a couple bites. None of us ate our beans or rice. Didn't have a pleasant flavor. The server did his best to be a great server and we tipped well. Wish we... More

After living in Tuscaloosa for 17 years, I'd kind of accepted there was no good place to eat Mexican food. Los Tarascos has filled that gap. This new location has great ambiance, great service, and excellent food. I went recently and had the chicken mole enchiladas, which were fantastic and plentiful. The wine is cheap and good, the margaritas wonderful,... More

Went for lunch on Sunday when thy opened. By the time we left, the parking lot was almost full. Enjoyed cheese chili rellenos along with steak fajitas and a beef taco. Cheese sauce for dipping was runny, but had a peppery kick. The complimentary red salsa was very good. All of the food was good quality, and the service was... More

I wish I could take this restaurant back home to Missouri with me. It was awesome. The food was so so good I had trouble not eating it all even after I was full. The staff was very friend also. It was such a great find in Alabama which I don't think is known for their Mexican food.

This is our regular go-to spot in Tuscaloosa. I love the chicken soup. Tonight, it was especially tasty. The chopped jalapeños, tomatoes, onions and cilantro on the side were especially fresh. My husband had the chihuahua enchilada. But best of all for me is always the frozen margarita. It is simply the best. PS They are soon moving a few... More

We go at least 3 or 4 times a month. It's always great food. If it were up to me I would go once a week!
