A no frills place. Food is very good as are the prices. If your main concern is just getting a good meal this is a place to go. They also have a number of house made hot sauces to try.

The place have limited seating with a different approach to the taco cousine. We had a carnitas sandwich which was good, a quesadilla with beans and a cubano carnitas sandwich which was also good.

I love eating in Montpelier. You almost can't go wrong but The Mad Taco is by far my favorite food. Simple atmosphere and fabulous food. Vermont beer, too. Eat here and you will be happy.

Although it was a little hot in here, service was good. The food was typical of a taco/burrito place but with local food made it better. Worth a stop if you are driving through

The burrito is a full meal and should be shared but so far I've been able to eat the whole thing. Great food every visit!

Quirky and budget friendly. This mod mex is fine for a quick snack or informal meal. Try the hot sauces.
