Over time, this location has proven itself worthy of the 4 stars. Clean, friendly, and prompt. Salsa bar is always kept full, and the food is consistent.


**original review below:


I for one have always been a fan of local dining so I would pick this over a taco bell any day! The service here is always spot on, and the people are really nice. The menu has all your ameri-mexican favorites, burrito, taco, enchiladas, nachos...etc. None of the menu items have failed me yet.


They have a fresh salsa bar which is rare for fast food and they also have hash browns or as they call "potato things" which totally completes any order. The meat in the tacos are generous.


Don't expect the real authentic mexican deal here (there are a good few in town if you prefer that experience), but Taco inn is dependable and yummy, perfect for a snack or meal, this american-mexican favorite will have you happy you stopped by

A Lincoln tradition is right.  I lived off taco in in college as cheap eats but great taste.   I do not live in Lincoln anymore as I am 52 and on east coast. But every time I come to Lincoln as well as my sis from Albuquerque it's the first thing we have.  It's still great with that vinegary mild sauce and something about that cheese.   I ALWAYS get a bean burrito and bean enchiladas MILD with no onion.  The owner on 48th told me he started at the one across from Unl bookstore back in late 80s that was my late night and lunch place.   He liked it so much he bought and started one on 48th by union college.  My family loves the taco salad and my mom the tator tots and cheese.   A MUST when you come to Lincoln.  I wish it was served at stadium like Val's.

 Sep 9, 2020 Updated Oct 22, 2020: A Coors Light delivery truck crashed into the front of the Taco Inn at 48th Street and Lowell Avenue on Wednesday, reported by Lincoln Journal Star

Abeer truck caused an estimated $100,000 of damage to a College View restaurant when it drove into the front of the building.

Shortly after noon Wednesday, a Coors Light truck operated by State Distributing crashed into the Taco Inn at 48th Street and Lowell Avenue, just southwest of the Union College campus. 

The truck was heading north on 48th Street when a car heading east on Lowell Avenue failed to stop at a stop sign, according to Lincoln Police Department Capt. Todd Kocian. The truck swerved to try to avoid the car and lost control, crashing into the restaurant. 

Both drivers were transported to Bryan West with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The building's exterior was damaged by the crash. The incident report estimated $100,000 in damage, but that could change with further evaluation, Kocian said.

City staffs were on the scene throughout the afternoon, evaluating the stability of the restaurant.

An employee who answered the phone at the restaurant declined to comment when reached by the Journal Star. No one inside the restaurant was injured.
