Popular, crowded mexican restaurant. Don't expect fine dining, just decent food at a good price in a very laid back atmosphere. This place really has the ambiance of a local hangout. Wait staff sometimes terse, but efficient and friendly.

The wait staff are very nice and inviting. Food portions are rather large for a good price. Salsa is super good. I highly recommend the fajitas. They are a very large portion for less then $10. Small dinning area but definitely worth it.

Always the same staff!!!! I have been going there for 2 years now and realised I have never said a thing about the place online. Consistent food at a decent price! Not a 5 star Mexican place but I like it. My mom was a 5 star cook to me.My Mexican friends moms were too. Not rich so if you... More

We love to eat at local places when we travel. And we love Mexican food. My daughter and I were traveling to Yellowstone and stopped near here for the night. We went and checked this place out. When we got out of the car and started toward the door I turned back and wanted to skip the place. My daughter... More

We have eaten there once a week for years, but no more! The food has always been great for the price, Geen chili is good. Depending on the night, everything is good. Some days are better than others. It has always looked like it could use a good cleaning or maybe just tear down the building and start over, but... More

Truly a unique restaurant that reminds me of Mexico. It is seldom that you get your food as good as you see in the menu's picture, and in Taco Loco, it is better than the picture! Service is very friendly, and fast. If you are there more than a couple of times, they'll greet you like family! Their Calamari appetizer... More

We were looking for a place to eat in Brighton on a Friday night and they were all packed. We hadn't tried Taco Loco but decided to stop in. The service was attentive considering it was really busy. The seating was limited and we ended up at a shared table with other guests. We ordered our food and surprisingly had... More

My husband and I have been there several times for a pretty authentic Mexican food meal. I loved their salsa, warm chips etc but we came in once and the salsa was watery and the food was tasteless. I asked the waitress what had changed and she insisted nothing had. The couple at the other table my use totally agreed.... More

My husband went here for breakfast on Sunday morning after Mass. The place was hopping. We had breakfast items and the food was tasty and plentiful.
