The food was great with perfect portions. Their margaritas are strong, and delicious. Would definitely come back again to try even more.

After a full day of Skiing at Sugarbush definitely stop by Mad Taco to refuel. Delicious Beer, tried the Lagunitas Dark Swan and if you enjoy a great sour this one is a must have. The pork belly taco was cooked to perfection with the perfect amount of seasoning and accompaniments. The Carnitas sandwich was delicious and certainly large enough... More

This is a great restaurant for what it's trying to do. An enjoyable experience with good and simple food, a rustic atmosphere and a great place to hang around with ya boys. I could say how the food is just ok, but it doesn't matter, becuase they are not trying to win a Michelin star. This place succeeds in what... More

Very informal dining. Order your tacos at the window, find a table, tacos are brought out to your table. My only complaint is that the dining area was quite cold.

Such a great spot to have a laid back dinner with friends and family! The staff and food were wonderful! We will be back soon! For anyone in need of a bed and breakfast or other sleeping accommodations, do not stay at the Mad River Barn, Heather, the owner, is a horror to deal with.. Look for another place.

Fun hole-in-the-wall mexican joint. We stopped by with a group of friends after skiing. The Big Daddy Fatty was great! Reasonable priced and good variety. A must try.

Got the smoked pork tacos with kimchi and cilantro. Very good. There's a self-service area to get your own sauces, but could only try 2 hot ones cause the rest of the squeeze bottles were all plugged up. Margarita was good. Jerk wings were tiny and way over cooked. Had to clean off our own picnic table. Place was filled... More
