Our family is new to the NSB area & we were starting to get frustrated at how expensive Mexican food can be here vs where we moved from! I found this location through Trip Advisor & am so happy we did! Quick service, even though the line was long! The food was awesome! I love the chipotle dressing they used... More

In the area for 10 days, ate at the Taco Shack three times! One day I had the Shack-a-ladas. Delish! The next trip I had the Phatty Pastelon that is described as Puerto Rican lasagna. Again, Delish! So good I looked up a recipe and am going to try and make it when I am suffering in the cold winter... More

We ate here for the first time last night. We have been wanting to try it and glad we did. As luck would have it, it was dollar taco night. So we had tacos and a chimichanga. Everything tasted great. This is an open air establishment with limited seating so be prepared to take your food with you. They are... More

Although we're from out of state this is our 6th visit. Never disappoints. Highly recommend. Everything is good and the prices are ridiculously low.

Very chill atmosphere! The only thing is that they need to expand... they were packed each time we went, but that's because the food is amazing! And gets to your table extremely quick!

Relaxed, outdoor atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and always remembers us. The food is great and they don't hold back on the meat. I love the Sunset Quesadilla!

Crazy busy with locals - tasty Mexican food and inexpensive prices. Worth the wait in line and you can get a table once you have ordered. Don't be afraid of the lines!

Stumbled upon this place and it's fairly popular with the locals. Cheap prices, decent portion size for the money. Maybe a little better than a Tijuana Flats? Not many mexican places in the area and this fit our need for a Mexican fix but it's not the best we've ever had...a solid 4 star rating, but shy of a 5.

I wish I could go there now right now! We tried the pork burrito, empanadas, cheese dip & chips. I wish I coul try more . Everything was wonderful . That pulled pork was as good as I have ever had. There service was perfect. The price cheap. VERY casual place that I wish I could visit once a week... More
