In town on business and walked across the street to check this place out. It was almost empty which doesn't look good at first. I ordered one of the specials and the food was very good.

We've eaten at Taco Loco many times and had our granddaughter's graduation celebration here. They have great margaritas and a variety of beer. Their food is authentic and very good. The service is always fast and friendly.

The food is good but the seating is limited. The Posole on Fridays is great but you have to get there early because they run out fast. The prices are very reasonable.

#18, shrimp tacos, FRIED! One of the classic dishes that keeps me coming back. Carnitas is good, el Pastor is excellent. The breakfast plate with bacon, scrambled eggs, beans rice and corn tortillas is one of my fave breakfasts anywhere. Try a #1, cheese enchilada with a crispy taco. Yum! No chips and salsa and only decent guac is my... More

We go to Taco Loco all the time, really embarrassingly often. More specifically, TL #6. Their cook has my vote for the best in Lompoc...so, so good! Huevos rancheros with hash browns, chile relleño burrito are favorite comfort foods. Very nice environment, lovely people, five stars all the way. Love this place.

I really enjoyed the tacos here and the chef offered to make my husband Huevos Racheros at night after my husband had mentioned he would like to come back to try them. He loved them! Great place to enjoy!

Taco Loco is the place to go for really authentic home style Mexican food. Don't even bother eating at the fast food places-for pretty much the same price you can have really a delicious Mexican meal. No need to call in if you want to bring it home and enjoy it with a good beer, they never keep you waiting... More
