Stopped in Lamesa on our way to Lubbock and our burritos were horrible. I grew up with Taco Villa in Odessa and this is NOT a good one. For some reason the meat tasted different at this location. This was the second time I've been duped and there will not be a third!!! Corporate needs to check on this franchise because they are damaging the Taco Villa brand.

NASTY..  Started with the lady at the drive thru with her neck covered in hickies - she was about 30 years old!  We ordered a bean burrito and combo burrito.  Inedible.  Refried beans were nasty - like wipe that taste off your tongue nasty. And I love Taco Villa. But not this one.

I'm a huge fan of Taco Villa but not this location. It hasn't been very good for awhile now. But this is thinly one in Lamesa.

So I have another try. It has gotten better than it was before. Maybe that's because Taco Bell is coming soon. I'm assuming they will get better so they don't get put out of business.

On another note they are remodeling the inside so you can only drive thru. By the way, the speaker doesn't work either.

Taco Villa in Topeka turns into good experience: A customer shared his experience

“Taco Villa restaurant in Topeka was a good experience for one of the customers as she returned satisfied from the place,” reported by CJonline.

You can read her experience below:

Recently, I decided to buy lunch for a couple of people and deliver it. I decided to stop at Taco Villa and order two taco salads. I was on a time crunch and I hurried inside to place my order when I realized I did not have my car keys and had locked the car.

Frustration and anxiety wanted to set in. I told the cashier what had happened and if I could use a phone to call AAA. She dialed the phone number for me and I gave AAA information. Without hesitation, she asked me if I would like a glass of water, which I needed by that time and glad she offered and told me I could sit anywhere I wanted to and wait.

As I was waiting she came up to me and asked if I would like a cookie since it was lunchtime and I said yes, a cookie sounds nice. Then a few minutes later she returned to tell me AAA was on their way. She turned lemons into lemonade for me. You can be sure I will return.
