My wife and I stopped at Tasty Taco near Jordan Creek. My wife had been there before, but it was my first time. While there was a line to order of 10-15 customers we didn't wait more than 5 minutes. The wait for food wasn't much longer. My wife and I each had an original taco and we split the... More

I purchased tacos for my team - 18+. We got a ton of sides and beans. The food was awesome and large scale ordering was super easy. This is a great place to cater a fun function.

My husband had been introduced to Tasty Tacos on a business trip and when we were going to Des Moines for a family trip, he said we had to go. I was thinking, how good can a taco be? These tacos are the best I've ever had! The homemade shell is a cross between Indian Fry Bread and a gordita.... More

When we were transferred to Des Moines for my husband's work, we were told you have to have Tasty Tacos! So we made it a priority and were very surprised. We had never had a deep fried flour tortilla, but kept an open mind. This taco is simple & addicting!!! I am generally someone who tries everthing on the menu,... More

My husband and I were in downtown Des Moines for a tour of the beautiful state capital building. Before the tour we were looking for a place within walking distance of the capital. Tasty Taco is just a couple of blocks away. It's always a good sign when you enter a restaurant that is packed with locals. Even though there... More

Their original tacos are made fresh with quality ingredients while you wait. The line usually moves quickly so doesn't take long to get your food. The original tacos are served on tortillas that more closely resemble fry bread, thick and tasty. Delicious, but not low carb! For your first visit definitely try the tacos - it's what their business is... More

Was looking for some place different then the "normal" fast food places. So I looked up this place on trip advisor and the reviews were pretty good. I had the steak flour soft taco and pork enchilada. The steak is a chopped style steak, and it was seasoned right for me. The pork enchilada was like the way I like... More
