Traveling from Chicago, to WI, we decided to visit an old favorite, Taco Nano. We ordered our usual, but it quickly became obvious that it was not the same. If you want standard tacos, you'll probably be satisfied. If you're used to what made this...More

I had been meaning to try this little hole-in-the-wall taqueria, which is under the same ownership as the Happ Inn across the street, for quite some time. I did so while awaiting my pup's visit at the doggie dentist. I was delighted. They serve nothing...More

Tacos, only tacos. This means that the kitchen is uncomplicated and your orders are ready quickly. Place your order at the counter (credit cards accepted), and then find a table. Your tacos will be delivered to you by your order number. Prices are not bad...More

Just had Taco Nano's Taco Truck out to our family reunion party. Great selection, delicious food, great value. The new and improved recipes are the best tacos on the North Shore!

Taco Nano is the type of place I might have expected to find somewhere like Austin. Unusual tacos with fresh ingredients and great salsas... I always try something different. You order at the counter, then can sit in the small, cute dining area or outside....More

We love Taco Nano. My husband and I bring anyone from out of town here and we even travel from the city to have dinner here. It has become one of our favorite dinner spots. The guacamole is one of the best I've ever had-...More

Very popular spot for best tacos on North Shore... you know it's popular when high school teenagers patiently stand in line for their food.. Very casual, but small with very limited seating. It's not a "date night" or formal dinner pick, but very good for...More

Yes, but they are very small with about only six tables. On the other hand, the tables turn over quickly, as it doesn't take long to eat a taco. Enjoy!
