Have been there 3 times and will no more. I have found each time the food at best just so-so, and often they 'run-out', that the buffet is more like a snack bar. I know there are others who have sworn how good it is. But, the location is a strike against it, as is the environs, and too what... More

At Lake Taco the food is always good, the staff are attentive and the prices are very reasonable. The setting is nice with a good view and a pleasant breeze off the lake. A bonus is getting your car washed next door while you eat.

This place is behind a gas station in Ajijic but there food and service is spot on. We have had both fish and shrimp tacos and salads and burritos and I loved the chimichanga. Not a fancy spot but you should try it!

A place to eat that is never disappointing. Always delicious, fresh and tasty! The service is excellent and if you're lucky, you might get a kitty to nap in one of your chairs. It's lovely and I highly recommend it!!

I find the service here attentive but totally void of any personability. Kinda feel like I''m bothering them if I ask for something. Not good...trey should anticipate your needs but I've always thought that this is just a joint to hang while I get my car washed. I would never come here on my own need to eat their menu.... More

I must say that I gave Lake Taco a 3 rating only because of past years when it was wonderful. It was my go to place with friends and my little dog. Today was a huge disappointment and this was my second visit this time down here. My disappointment and criticism lies with the shrimp tacos which they no longer... More

Nice place to stop for a cold beer and tacos. We had the fish and the shrimp tacos, which are served with nice condiments. Nothing fancy but good food and a pleasant atmosphere on the deck.

I have eaten here countless times and always had the same thing - fish tacos. The ingredients are always fresh and made to order. You can have the fish fried or grilled and you can choose mahi mahi or sea bass. I always take sea bass and always fried. Good friendly efficient service and you can't beat the price. Friends...

As we continue to explore Lakeside, we happened upon Lake Taco. Authentic Mexican cuisine freshly prepared. Breakfast and lunch served. We will return to try breakfast.
