So-So
Went here with my daughter and a friend mid-week afternoon. The place is small and could use an interior update. We ordered fish tacos,beef tacos and arroz con pollo. Fish tacos I've had much better elsewhere, beef tacos were dry, friend that had the arroz con pollo said it was pretty good. The prices are very good but service is slow and food just okay. Probably would not try again.

“Magnifico!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Looks like a hole-in-the-wall fast food Mexican place, but it is AWESOME! Food is tremendous - fresh, excellently prepared, delicious and plentiful. No fillers or Tex-Mex shortcuts here (no lard! Hallelujah!) just well prepared, delicious food. Hubby and I stopped in about 2:30 one afternoon, and ordered different chimichangas: they arrived each on a tray laden with very decent, flavoful rice and excellent beans.. The chimis were packed full of stuffing (chicken in one, beef in the other), and were delicately fried -- crisp and hot without being soggy with fat. Price was amazingly low, service was helpful, warm and speedy. Wow! Will return -- over and over if I can get there!

“Food yay, service, nay!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

While the staff was lovely and tried to please, the understaffing was so obvious for a Saturday night-
It should never take over an hour to receive fish tacos, and why would each table have 10 minutes between each diners entree presented- especially if we all got the same thing? Too bad, because the good was good!

“Worth the hour drive to New Hope”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

We tried El Taco Loco because we had a Groupon, but we were happy that we did. The food is good and hearty, if not quite as flavorful as we are used to expect from Mexican food. They do have a salsa bar where you can get some toppings to spice things up, if you prefer. This is definitely not a fancy restaurant. Patrons seat themselves at the indoor cafe tables and go up to the counter to place their food orders. They offer a good variety of menu options, and they even serve sodas bottled in Mexico. I tried the lime flavor, and it was very nice. The decor is simple, with Aztec type symbols painted on the walls. Another patron complained about the food being over-priced. It is more expensive than fast food, but definitely not overpriced for a non-chain restaurant.

“Overpriced, average”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

Extremely overpriced, like many things in New Hope. Food was...meh. To be blunt, Taco Bell is better. If you're going to pay the kinds of prices El Taco Loco charges, the food should be more memorable than a chalupa.
