We have lived in Buenos Aires for a year and eaten at the Taco Box several times. When we first arrived, it was a decent restaurant and the food was good though not the Mexican food of either California or Texas. But, as the months have passed, we feel like the owners must be skimping on the quality of ingredients to save money. Simple dishes, like guacamole, just aren't of the same quality as when we first went. This last visit, we even returned our mixed drinks. Whether they had a new bartender or just changed ingredients, we don't know.

Hopefully the owners read the reviews and step back up to the plate as this was a nice place to take the family for a good meal. It's time to start going back to what they were doing before!

We didn't delve much into Mexican food in BA, but out of all the places we tried (even Lupita, which is super expensive), Taco Box had the best food for a decent price. Plus you can get actual spicy sauce along with humongous pitchers of Margaritas.

The food is decent, but if you're used to Tex-Mex or true mexican food, you'll be disappointed in any Mexican restaurant in Buenos Aires.

The aversion to spice that the entire city has here in Buenos Aires makes most mexican food bland.

The service was slow on the night we went, which made it very difficult to resolve the major problems we had with our drinks (the margarita was made with rum and the mojito was made with tequila).

The food might be good, at least it was years ago when I first met this place
The last time I went there (and there will be no other time, believe me) they had us waiting seated at the table for 1 hour and 15 minutes....we saw all the rest of the people arriving after us, eating, except us. After asking them and having as an answer: your dishes will be here any minute now, they told us that the thing they use to make the quesadillas was broke, so they had to call a guy to repair it....we just left to search a place in which they care about their customers....not this
