“Good Mexican Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2012

I appreciate having Taco Roco close by when I feel like eating Mexican food. I especially like their homemade soups. One of my favorite meals is their beef and vegetable soup. It's very tasty and nice with some warm corn tortillas. Another favorite is the menudo. I don't eat menudo very often, but when I feel like a hot soup on the weekends, I go to Taco Roco for their flavorful menudo. Their breakfast burritos are good too. The ambiance is not very interesting. It's crowded and a little sterile inside. However, you can sit outside on a warm day and enjoy your meal. The employees are usually nice and welcoming. You can call and have them deliver to your home. I haven't done that yet, but it's nice to have the option.

“Great breakfast for $3.99!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2011

I live in Buellton. This is a little restaurant. Seats 40. What a breakfast deal. Two eggs, bacon(thick & 3 pcs.) or sausage links (3) or ham slices. Hashbrowns, refries, and corn or flour tortillas. BAM! Homemade thick red sauce in a squeeze bottle at ea. table. Filler food. Constant business and lots of takeout. Full service Mexican food till 9pm. Or, go across the street and pay $9.95 and up for breakfast.
Taco Roco has been here over 8 years.
