“Delicious, good value and great service!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

I love a restaurant with a short menu. You feel like within that short selection, you know what they're doing. That is true about the Taco Corner.

Everything is fresh, made to order, and delicious. The staff are friendly and accommodating, having no problems giving you some extra rice or beans if you've had a big day in the surf. They have delicious home made sauces: chipotle mayo and garlic jalapeno. Slather your tacos and burrito in this stuff. I recommend the fish tacos. My boyfriend recommends the chimichanga - a deep-fried burrito.

We were in ST for one month and we had 4 meals at Taco Corner. Each was better than the last. Great value, too.

“Above & beyond service!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This place was awesome, we were told they have great burgers and my husband loves a good burger, but he always wants it to have a fried egg on it... it's just his thing! When placing the order he asked if they could add an egg on top of his burger, he said that he didn't have any eggs, but he'd get one. So he jops on his motorcycle after getting the cook to start on our order, runs to the market and comes back with a carton of eggs. They fried it up and voila... one very happy customer! That was way above and beyond service right there. Very cool, just a small outside restaurant, super great service and very friendly employees.

“Lovely taco's, lovely owner”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

Very nice little taco bar along the main strip of Santa Teresa. The owner makes everything from scratch, including her own sauces. The vegetarian option had just run out when we dropped by, but an alternative vegetarian filling was made in seconds. Delicious taco!! The place has a nice vibe as well. Highly recommended.
