Great find. We were in the area and decided to try it for lunch. You order at the counter and they serve you at your booth. The food is made fresh so wait time is a little longer. They have a large menu at reasonable prices and give you a generous amount of food. If you're looking for the usual... More

They know how to make Mexican food. Tasted fresh, homemade. Good spicing. Lots of choices. Inexpensive. Tables and takeout.

Had a great kindness of that burrito with chips and salsa everything was fresh and nice college kids working behind the counter would definitely recommend stopping by whenever you're in the area if you want to some good Mexican food.

Stopped in to get a couple of tacos for lunch. Had the blacked shrimp taco. Spicy! But really good. And the cat fish taco special served wth a pineapple salsa. I think I ordered the same thing last time I was in...lol. The menu has something for everyone. I want to try everything!

Small venue in a strip mail. Nice variety of tacos and good value. You go to window and order and then they call your name. Very casual.

I wanted to order a bunch of wings for an small afternoon gathering. I called and inquired about their 50 wings for $39.99 special. I was told I need to pre-order a few hours ahead of time. SO I asked how many wings were in a large order and was told 12 for $9.00. I ordered 2 large orders for... More

I was there for dinner with my wife and another couple. This is not a fancy restaurant but completely enjoyable. You order the food at the counter and a waitress will bring it to your table. The food is plentiful and the cost is reasonable. It got quite busy at around 6 PM. No wonder. Very tasty and more laid... More

We love East Coast Taco. It is a quaint little restaurant. The people who man the counter are always friendly. And, most importantly, the food is fantastic. It's not what you'd expect tastewise from other Mexican restaurants. It's unique in the flavors they use in a way that works. Absolutely a must!

I've been here a few times and I never regret it! Always good and not everyone knows about this local joint either. Worth the try I promise.

This place is awesome. The food is great and the price is right. It is BYOB if you want to eat in. I prefer eat in as the food tastes better. It is a small place though. Everything on their menu is good. My family has tried most of the items. There is usually a line in front of the... More
