I had lunch at the Taco Spot and it was edible, but that's about it. I had a 'fish taco' that I'm not even sure what it was. It was some sort of mushed up something covered in a massive amount of mayo. The menu...More

Best tacos in town, burritos beat any Moes/Chipotle/Mexican joint I've had. Taco Boy can't hold a candle to this place-- they have an awesome cheeseburger taco! The steak tacos/quesadillas, etc is amazing. Try the loaded queso, and go on Taco Night for some pretty sweet...More

We hadn't been to Taco Spot in several years, and since they expanded, we thought they must be making good food and thought we'd give it a shot before going to see a movie. We ordered 5 different items. Weren't impressed by any. Food was...More

The salsa was very bland, the blackened fish taco was plain, and the blackened steak taco was OK. Most certainly not the best taco in town. Will give it another shot to try the carnitas street taco.More
