Customer service and food is terrible

This is the absolute worst Taco Cabana I ever seen. First they are insisting I pay almost $19.00 for 2 plates that cost $7.09 each. The girl wouldn't accept the fact that doesn't equate. Then the place is filthy, chairs are all sticky ,tables not cleaned right. Floors etc. The parking lot looks like it hasn't been cleaned in weeks. What a joke this place is. I could only imagine how bad the kitchen really is and coolers etc. . The food was Luke warm at best. Awful horrible place.

Great food

My family and I love the food here, fajitas are soft and always cooked perfectly. The tortillas are also delicious. Restaurants always packed, so we never dine in. Always drive thru, there’s always a line, but it moves fast.
