“Really good, true Mexican Tacos”

Taco Mel TaqueriaReviewed Oct. 2, 2017, by Billy B.  
“If you want some real Mexican Tacos you need to go to this little restaurant. Nothing fancy but it does not have to be with food this good. I had not heard of this place and a friend I was visiting suggested it. My wife, I and our friend went at lunch time and she suggested the Grilled Chicken Taco. The tortillas are handmade fresh there. Everything is fresh and once you get your Tacos there is a small bar where all of the fixings are. It is so good I ate there twice in three days.”

Tasty! Loved It!

“A couple of tacos was the best lunch I’ve had in a while! Crunchy pork and regular taco did the trick for me. It was that simple! I've had other varieties as well and all equally as good! Great choice when you have that taco urge....Get Sloppy!”

Local Tip: Try the Oyster Tacos!

Best crispy tacos & chips

“This is a great place to eat. I live around the corner and can't get enough of their tacos. I like the Citrus chicken but it's all good. They make their own shells. They stay crisp. The food is clean and not greasy. They make their own chips too. This is good food that's reasonably priced.”
