The loaded nachos with chorizo is a meal for two. Get it from the take out window at the Zephyr patio, and enjoy one of the only outdoor dining areas in Kent. The burritos are also huge, just be ready to take some home.

I go to Taco Tontos at least twice a month. They have tons of options on their menu- burritos, tacos, taco salad, quesadillas, and 2 layer tacos (hard shell taco inside a soft shell with cheese, queso, guac, or sour cream as the "glue"). They have lots of options for filling including vegetarian choices like potato, sweet potato, and beans.... More

I stopped at this popular Kent eatery with my family. There was a line which made me think that we were about to have something really tasty. I ordered the steak burrito bowl. It was incredibly salty. I could only eat half of it because the saltiness was off putting. There was too much cheese as well for my taste.... More

Went midweek about 6:30, so we were able to grab a table in this tiny restaurant. Order at one counter and wait to hear your name called for food pick up. Staff was friendly and patient with our questions. (If you hate cilantro, don't get the rice.) Enjoyed our vegetarian taco and burrito. Chips are good but quite salty. Guacamole... More

The food is so good, that the small eating area is a challenge worth undertaking. This is a KSU hot spot and from an alumni perspective I always feel right right at home.

Taco Tantos gives huge portions so don't order too much unless you want leftovers. Food was good but restaurant is small so be prepared to eat outside. The chips and salsa were yummy, I'd go back.

We went to the Venice to catch a local band. The band was good. Half the beers on their menu were "out of stock right now". The Mexican food from Taco Tonto's was Luke warm. Lots of rice and lettuce, with a little bit of what appeared to be boiled chicken in the two dishes my wife and I got.... More
