Whenever we come here for lunch we know we are in for a treat. The hard shells taco are great and only .99. The Sancho's are even better. Chips are ok but the crusto's are to die for.

Taco Tico is one of our favorite stops in Mason City when we want something quick. The food is excellent for the price and the selections are filling.

Taco Tico is a repeat favorite. The best deal is tge Texas Burrito. Always good quality. The owners are always there working no side by side with the employees. Never had a bad dining experience.

Taco Tico is my comfort food. The food is great and it is always fresh. My personal favorite is getting the Crustos to go with the meal. I am not a big dessert fan but these are the best!!
