While this restaurant use to be pretty good, it has changed the recipe for the taco meat and it is pretty greasy, Some of the people working there are not the most friendly, but it's pretty clean.

This small chain franchise is a favorite of our family and we always stop by on our way to Kansas City. Fresh tasting food at a budget price that has the big chain competition beaten hands down.

I would not recommend this restaurant. All menu items pretty much taste the same. The restaurant is not particularly clean and has a very greasy smell. I live in Odessa and will travel 20 miles for fast food Mexican before eating here.

we have eaten at this Taco John's in the past and stopped here again because it's good. I enjoyed the walking taco, which is a summer special menu item. It's tasty and a good deal for the money. It's also popular with the locals, so if you arrive during the lunch rush, it's going to be busy.

we always try to eat at Taco John's as we don't have them at home. Way better than Taco Bell. Menu seems to be more diverse too. Love the "meat and potatoes" burrito -- it's different and very tasty. Gotta have the potatoes!!

I stop here to and from Kansas City, MO. I love Taco John's food. It keeps getting better and better over the years. I have not been disappointed EVER in a meal there.
