“Excellent Fast Food”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

There are two Mexican places in town. One is gourmet, the other fast food. Taco Shack is fast food, but it is delicious fast food and the burritos are HUGE. When I moved out of New Paltz for a few years, I definitely missed Taco Shack.

“Mexicali blue instead..”
Reviewed 21 September 2011

we keep coming back despite the bad experiences, but no more. The salsa is off half the time, the fat dude is rude (the others are fine), the portions have progressively gotten smaller, and definitely go in and order or they'll screw it up. Mexicali blue or even ::shudder:: any taco bell would be a better choice.

“great, cheap food”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

The Taco Shack from all appearances is a dive, but serves incredibly good food. And at a reasonable cost. Servings are generous, and an interesting variety of imported sodas are available to accompany your meal. Be sure to get some guacamole to top whatever you are selecting. A good place to go for a tasty lunch - and while you can select vegetarian options, don't try to fool yourself into thinking you are making a healthy food choice. Enjoy, and eat in moderation, or share your choice with a friend. You may want to take your meal to go, the inside seating area is adequate but not overly appealing.

“Great Food, Giganto Burrittos, Great Nachos”
Reviewed 5 June 2011

It's a small, hole in the wall, but the food is great and their burritos are enourmous in size. When you first enter the place, you wonder if you should stay. We took the chance and never looked back. There is no table service here. Food is served on paper plates with plastic utensils. Self serve all the way. There are only 5 tables or so in this tiny place. Which is ok if you like little places with great food. If you are looking for great food in a very casual environment. Check this place out.

My family frequents this little dive as often as we can. My kids (10 & 11) love it too.

Food for college kids and adults alike. If you want mexican food that is not taco bell this is the place for you. All fresh produce and meat. Made right in front of you. Good prices. Small sit down area. Free Delivery.
