Not good. No one at our table could eat the food. Chicken flautas tasted like fish, shells on the shrimp, bad chips, guacamole was slimy, need I go on. Beware of you dare.

You can tell a lot regarding the quality of a Mexican restaurant by their margaritas, and they were very good at Taquilo's! I had delicious MahiMahi fish tacos and the wife had a taco and an enchilada... and 2 margaritas each! I highly recommend for...More

Every morsel of this meal was fabulous! The service was adequate - we had to ask about silverware when our food was brought to us.

Another restaurant couldn’t seat our large group, so we ended up here after a performance at the Grand. Heather was fantastic - seated us right away and we had excellent service. Food was fresh and served warm. Thank you for making our evening special!
