We decided to stay in for the night with our whole family! Really excited and thought one of Taco Loco's family meals was the best bet. Called to order and must have gotten on the other end of someone's terrible day...or this is the way they treat all of their customers? Hopefully not, it would be a shame to see... More

I didn't even think it was possible to have bad Mexican food until I visited this place. When we walked in the gentleman who took our order made us feel like we were bothering him by being there. He did not say Hello or explain anything. When we said we would have pork he kind of looked at us like... More

This used to be the best taco joint in Shakopee. It just hasn't got what it had when it was on the west end of town. Whatever you need to do Taco Loco, do it soon, you've alienated the Taco Loco crowd of Shakopee

I know this place has gotten lots of good reviews and I'm not usually one to rip on businesses - especially local ones - but we got sick after eating here so I felt a duty to report it. Not a fan of the food in general and after spending just 5 minutes in the restaurant our clothes and hair... More

Went here for the first time last weekend and we really enjoyed the food. It's cheaper than most of the Mexican restaurants out there like Loro / Acapulco / etc., but much better than any fast food place - a nice 'tween' place to be. We ordered a steak quesadilla, basket of tacos, and a carnitas chimichanga. I don't have... More

We've ate here several times and keep asking ourselves why?? The food is just ok, the service is horrible(don't ask questions since you'll be lucky to get an answer) and either they don't have A/C or it wasn't working since we sweated through our entire lunch. There are much better options in the area, we're throwing in the towel and... More

Taco Loco is AUTHENTIC. The Mendez family opened up Taco Loco #1 at the edge of town in Shakopee several years ago. It was an old Dairy Queen or Taco Johns before that. They did not have a dine-in area, we would walk up to the window and order our food. In the summertime, we would wait near the building... More

Taco Loco served the Grooms dinner in our back yard! Quality and Quantity was more than anticipated. All guests young and old were accommodated with the choices. We have returned over and over again for this food, whether it be a quick lunch or dinner or to entertain others. This is one of Shakopee's little hidden secrets. Check it out!!!

Don't bother. There is nothing exciting about this place, unless you hv little kids and you don't care about our dining experience.
