It is true this place has the best greasy tacos around and I love it. Where else can you go to get orange mystery powder on your tacos and have it taste so good. I am a huge critic of Mexican food but you dont...More

Look, these tacos are legend-wait for it-dary! Serious good grease food, quality ingredients and the powdered cheese makes you wanna Netflix and sleep! I dream of these tacos.

I don’t know how everyone likes these tacos!!! Born and raised in KC and always heard about how great they are. Finally got a chance to try them and I’m sorry I did. They are just soggy grease filled tacos. They come with lettuce and...More

Consistent. Reliable. Fried. Greasy. Powdery cheesy. Your fingers are curiously stained orange after washing. But these tacos are so good that you find yourself craving them every once in awhile. Good thing I don't live close because my guts couldn't handle them on a regular...More

It's as advertised, do not expect a gourmet meal. It's fried food at a reasonable price. A few times a year craving.

I have to do it at least once a year. Even though it's not the original location from high school, my order is always the same: 2 meat and cheese and veggie sticks. It's an addiction for sure.

I have eaten at in-a-tub for over 50 years. They still have the best tacos around. I stop by every time I'm within 5 miles of it I live 20 miles away but it's still worth the drive. It's always clean and friendly.

Well, the title says it all. Not really. It definitely should include the taco salads, I usually top it all off with one of their Milk Shakes. This place is so old school it brings me back to a time where we didn't care about...More

While the majority of reviews are positive, we have to vote thumbs down. My wife ordered refried beans that were sprinkled with powdered cheese....returned for real shredded cheese. She did say her taco salad was good. I ordered 2 soft shell tacos that were bland...More
