“Southern Twin Cities Authentic Mexican”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Located in Shakopee, this place has some delicious pastor and the pork is pretty tasty too. We also had a beef taco, but like most beef taco's, there usually isn't a lot of flavor. Don't get me wrong, it was still good and the taco was devoured. This is also the place where we had a chance to try Lengua. What's that you ask? It's beef tongue! Like most things this exotic, texture and what it actually is plays with your mind. For me, I just dug right in, never though about it and it was actually pretty darn good. For my wife, she had to get past the mind thing, but she too though it was pretty good.

“Best Taco in Minnesota per WCCO TV”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Went after seeing the above award on TV. An informal eat in/takeout spot offering primarily tacos and burritos. I tried the 2 taco (gound beef in one and spicy pork in the other), spanish rice, and beans combo. Everything was excellent. The Spicy pork taco was absolutely great. In a hard to find location off the beaten path but well worth it

“LOVE Taco Loco”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

The food at Taco Loco is excellent - a lot of value for the money. Service is fast & friendly, the food is fresh and well-made. I highly recommend Taco Loco instead of the other "fast food" places in the neighborhood!

“Nice local place.”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

Although I miss the old place across from the grain elevator, it is nice that his one has seating. The five for five deal is outstanding. Taco Loco isn't quite a fast food place but isn't quite a sit down place. Go when you want simple, but excellent Mexican food.
