I have always loved going to this Taco Villa whenever I could since I live out of town. I went there tonight and the tortilla on my burrito was crispy and not at all soft. The beans were lukewarm all of which made for a very undesirable meal. I threw the burrito away.

I had also gotten a Guadalajara which I thought would be fine. It was awful. The tostada was stale and the guacamole very undesirable. I also threw it away.

What a disappointment!  It has always been a favorite place. I don't know if I'll ever try it again.

I'm so sad.

We eat at taco vlla often but haven't been to this one in quite a few years. The taco salad was supposed to be shredded chicken but it was large chunks. The salad was also missing a few ingredients. The taco salad shell was stale and soft. We also got tacos and the shells were very stale and in appetizing. The ground beef didn't taste like taco villas ground beef either. They didn't make it the way all the others do. Very disappointing.

I'm a huge Taco Villa fan, but this location needs some attention. First I stopped at the speaker to place my order. There was one vehicle in front of me at the window. They never took my order after 4-5 minutes. I keep saying hello, with no response. When the car at the window pulled away, I pulled up to the window. I looked into the window with three people working and two of them saw me and keep moving about without responding to me after several minutes. Finally a girl with the headset came to the window, opened it and just stood there staring at me. She said nothing, then I said "do I need to come in to order, did you hear me at the speaker?" She said" like it doesn't hear big trucks". Big trucks? I'm driving a Chevy Silverado, I told her I'll just go somewhere else. I will never go there again, nor another Taco Villa.
