During this first trip to San Antonio, looking for something economical, I saw these Taco Cabanas around town and wanted to try it. It's kind of fast food, they have a drive thru, but they are much fresher and so much better than some taco Bell. If you go inside to order, you pick what you want from the menu bar, then they give you a table number to take wherever you're sitting, they bring the food to you. A soft or crunchy taco plate with rice and beans, plus a drink is only 8-10 dollars. You don't even have to ask for guacamole or sour cream as it is already included with the meal. It is fresh and they make the soft taco shells themselves. The chicken tacos are well seasoned and alot of flavor. The re fried beans so good they almost melt in your mouth, so creamy. The rice has great flavor and not too spicy. Next to their registered when you order, if you don't want a soda, there is cold beer on ice the Corona's, you can pluck right there to add to your meal. And with the hot Texas sun, they top off the meal. Taco Cabana was becoming my favorite take out spot while in Texas. I'd you're traveling it is a good cost saver also.

Not your mamas cooking but better than taco bell. I would say the cashier was too hyper and rushed people ordering but the rest of the staff was great. Ordered the shrimp quesadilla but when I got it, it had half the filling of the pic. A little pricey for what we got but tasty.

The food is inexpensive, but really good. We filled up, and took some with us for later. The staff was friendly. Our meal was prepared quickly. The salsa bar was fresh. Enjoyable for the price. Try the street tacos.

TC has been our choice for breakfast tacos for well over 30 years.
The service at the counter can vary according to the experience of the employee and level of traffic.
Also, the taco makers vary considerably in the amount of ingredients they add to the taco. Last week the chorizo and egg wound up with almost no sausage.
Some locations are always cutting back on ingredients.
Several years ago, TC decided not to put bacon strips in in the bacon and egg taco. They put bacon bits instead. The taste suffered.
The add-on salsas and toppings are great and make this a good way to flavor up the taco.
Prices have been rising and the egg shortage caused a permanently higher price.
They are still a good stop for the dozen tacos to go if you have visitors.

Drive thru Open 24 hours which is a plus for those of us that work close by on the night shift. Food was good and reasonably priced.
