One does not simply come to Des Moines and NOT visit Tasty Taco's. It's an Iowa experience. Like the State Fair. Like RAGBRAI.

Tasty Tacos makes awesome flour tacos! The shells are hot & crispy. Must get them & eat them there, they're not nearly as good cold. Once you've had one you'll never want to go elsewhere.

While my niece was visiting from Colorado, I wanted to show her the food, sights and sounds of Des Moines. We had lunch at TASTY TACOS during the State Fair. We ordered, got our food right away and headed out to see more of Des Moines! It was a great lunch.

Original flour taco. Nothing more needs to be said! Inexpensive, puffy shell, spiced meat, lots of cheese and lettuce. Of course they have lots of other menu items which are quite delicious also. You won't be sorry!

We visited there with friends who live in Des Moines, and we heard the story of this restaurant. We ordered the original, and the chicken tacos. They are expensive for what they serve, everything is a la carte, and a taco (it is a bit bigger than what you get at Taco Bell), but neither the chicken nor the beef... More

I live in Colorado now, but I haven't found anything that compares to the flour taco at Tasty Taco. It's the best. I've never seen a taco like it anywhere. And the taste is always great.

I have yet to find decent Mexican food in Des Moines. This is a fast food restaurant. Service was quick, although the counter person had an attitude. Food was served hot, the place is very clean. But the tacos were really bland, typical of Iowa Mexican food.

Absolutely delicious!! Fried flour tacos and sides! High high calories - but worth every bite!!! Not fancy - just walk up to the counter and order - seat yourself - super casual! So good!!

I love tge bean burrito and hard shell taco. I add taror tots with cheese sauce and mexican rice for a full meal. Their flour tacos are the most popular, but I dont care for them too much bread for me. It's a case where you either love the or hste them. Try one to see if you like them.... More
