Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 August 2016

I dropped in here for lunch and decided to try three of their tacos: The Pollo Asado, the Carnitas, and the fish taco. You order at the counter and pay and they bring your order out to you. Nothing fancy, and that is fine. They also have a salsa bar with three kinds of salsa (hot, mild, and salsa verde) as well as pickled hot peppers. I tried all of them, and they are all very good.

My tacos arrived after maybe 10 minutes. El Taco Loco describes itself as a California-style Mexican restaurant and that is an accurate description. These are tacos with an American spin. The tacos are stuffed amply with lettuce and tomato and cheese, for example, just how many people prefer their tacos. Myself, I enjoyed them and was pleased with both the quality and the value on hand here. I would definitely stop in again.

I had heard good things about this restaurant for years and decided to stop in and was not impressed. The food was ok but lacked the flavor I had hoped for. I had a carnitas and one pollo asado taco platter $11.00 which includes rice and beans. the soft corn tortilla's were doubled but the entire taco fell apart before i could finish it. The chicken didn't taste of anything and the pork was a little better. The beans were again ok but the rice was dry. There is a salsa station and even that didn't really save the flavor. I also thought it was a bit pricey for 2 taco's, beans and rice. You order at the window and they deliver the food to your table and like other reviewers have stated not the happiest service.

We were able to eat vegetarian food here. Order at the counter and food is brought to the table. Could have been cleaner and friendlier. Food was okay.

Used to be so much better. Today's for was so bland I had to add a quart of salsa and hot sauce to get any taste out of it! There was no seasoning! Plenty of food for the money but NOT tasty! Go back to doing it the way you did before! (Maybe new owners or perhaps the chef died). Also; for God's sake please bring back the tortilla chips and salsa! ):
