I have to say the food was very delicious. The tacos were 5 stars and one has to try the fried avocado here!! The margaritas were amazing! Full of flavor and unique flavors. The only thing that was bad was the attitude of the bartender serving us. Each time we requested a drink he made a face like he was doing us a favor. He was very grumpy, that sort of ruined our experience that day. Besides that we had a good time there.

Our tour group went there for lunch on Good Friday.a. It was very busy there. We were a group of 15 people. We ordered as a group and within 10 minutes our food was coming out. It was delicious. The service was excellent.

My wife and I stopped in just before our journey out of town to San Jose. Taco Taco had a friendly Bilingual staff that was quick to bring our delicious food. What a great way to say goodbye to the town. The nachos, the tacos, the views! I believe there are two taco taco locations in town and we ate on the one on the south side near to road out.

Live music & atmosphere was nice, and fried avocado tacos were good. If garlic isn't your absolute favorite food, though, maybe stay away from the guacamole (mouth still tasted like garlic after brushing our teeth). Also not sure why all these reviews say the prices are good -- it's not $$$$, but it's also definitely not cheap (we ended up paying $20 a person). If you're looking for good cheap food, try a local "soda" instead!

We went into taco taco with a group of 14 and were served our food within minutes. Some of the best tacos and salsas I experienced in Costa Rica. Highly recommended!
