This is my second time ordering and I am in LOVE! The tacos are sooooo good! It says on their menu that the tortillas are handmade and you can definitely taste the difference. I usually order their food on Uber Eats and the have followed the order notes every time, so I love that too! Definitely would recommend ordering from the super good! I really hope they don't change!!


¡Esta es la segunda vez que ordeno y estoy ENCANTADA! ¡Los tacos son muy buenos! Dice en su menú que las tortillas son hechas a mano y definitivamente puedes saborear la diferencia. Por lo general, pido su comida en Uber Eats y siempre han seguido las notas de pedido, ¡así que eso también me encanta! ¡Definitivamente recomendaría ordenar desde el súper bueno! Espero que no cambien!!

Just like most restaurants anywhere, the food cannot stay consistently good.


Last time I had Taco Inn, the food was disgusting... I mean DISGUSTING! I ordered a carnitas quesadilla; the meat was nothing but fat pieces. I was spitting out every bite into a napkin since I could not even chew on the "meat."


I also ordered breaded chicken cutlets. The chicken was black and freezing; it smelled horrible. How do you serve freezing cold chicken cutlets on top of hot microwaved bland rice. You could just tell it was old chicken grabbed out of a refrigerator and thrown into my order. 


I called immediately to complain, and spoke to Anna. She said she would refund me or send me another replacement order. I did not take the offer, and just threw out all the food.


Maybe they had an off day, but I am not eating here again to find out if they have anymore.


** Due to Guillermo's comment::


The pictures that I have are from other/past visits; you can see how old they are. I was a returning customer. I have been to the actual restaurant and ordered multiple times. Should I have taken pictures of the food in the garbage? As I stated before your employee ANNA offered me a refund or the order to be sent out again... It was so NASTY that I said NO THANK YOU! -- Learn from Yelp reviews, instead of being so defensive.
