Historically I ALWAYS get bad service from TC. Seems to be consistent with any location, except this one. I drive in from out of town 2 to 3 times a week and almost always go thru their drive thru. Service is always great. No matter how long the line is they are very friendly and fast. This location obviously has... More

I like going here when I want to just sit and eat a good meal. I like to go during the week mid-evening on a Wed. Not a lot of people and noise. Like the atmosphere.

Can't beat this place for breakfast tacos. For lunch or dinner, order off-menu: build your own chalupas. Reasonable prices. Fresh salsa bar complete with cilantro and lime. We eat here about 3 times a month, and really miss it when we head east to visit family.

Can't even get a hot sauce order right much less your food they don't care to refund your money because they don't give a crap how many times you drive back there. Don't leave without receipt.

The restaurant was clean and the food was good. The salsa bar was kept clean and the salsa was great. I had fajita tacos with charro beens and rice. It was all very good. I am always surprised at the quality of food at Taco Cabana.

We visit TC locations for a quick meal when were on the road and food is usually good for fast food but we found this location to be very slow, food was not up to par and dining area was very dirty. We thought about asking for a refund and leaving before food came out but stuck it out since... More

Pros: -Open until late at night -Big portions Cons: -Cold staff with a tendency of not being friendly. -Food is not Mexican but Tex-Mex so the favors change a bit. We wanted to have some Mexican food so we ended up here. They do serve the typical fried beans and rice plus your fajitas, tacos or enchiladas. However, the flavor... More

It's a good place to eat but it is very loud and they just slop the food together and your portions are small. But it's good food I guess there's better taco cabanas out there
