My son is a very picky eater. He would not try a taco anywhere - either home or at a restaurant. Then I thought of Taco John's. Bingo! He loves it and we love it. Try the mexi rolls - addicting!

This is the best fast food restaurant in Appleton. The menu offers many choices and the food is very good.

It’s fast food, but a lot of variety. Friendly staff, free refills on beverages. Kids live the cheese quesadillas.

Always seems to me like they are a step up from the others. Fast food but with a kick. Always quick and the food is hot. This location is really clean.

Mexican on a budget at TJ's. I enjoy it better then the other fast food Mexican in the valley, Taco Hell. Pick your own hot sauce or salsa, no little packets here. A good variety of dishes. Friendly service, brought the food out to my...More

I have been to many Mexican restaurants, including fast food Mexican, and this does not rate well when compared to may fast food Mexican restaurants and taquerias elsewhere in the country and in Mexico. Taco was too greasy and not a really good taste
