I'm not sure what the bad reviews are about. This is a fast food taco place. No better no worse than the others. They offered a daily special For $7 it was the taco salad in a bowl. It looked good but j opted for the burrito as did my husband. He had the chicken and I had the meat.... More

The burritos are huge! Stuffed to the brim! Got the steak burrito. Mammoth. As good as Frijoles in Niagara Falls. Why anyone would choose subway (tasteless....) next door over this is insane. FAR cheaper too.

I went here so many times while I was at McMaster U. Loved the food - the taste and the selection for vegetarians. Miss being able to go there!

Taco del Mar = Taco of the Sea Likely because their food is soggy and wet, salty, and overall lacks flavour. Great potential, but just aren't hitting the mark.

Chicken quesadilla tasted and smelled like cheese whiz with hot wet cat food on top. Was not worth the price and if it was open, i would go back to get my money back. I feel bad for the university students who spend the little money they have here.

I still can't get the taste of feces out of my mouth twenty dollars later. Bland, disproportionate distribution of filling. Must be very drunk to consume.

I found this restaurant, across from McMaster university, to be quite buisy. My order consisted of 2 tacos. I thought the portions were good, and the taste was good. The only disappointment for me, was they didn't have habanero pepper sauce / puree. I have had tacos at Poco Loco, in the east end, Ole (Locke St), and Burrito Brothers... More

Excellent food, staff, music, value and location. Don't miss treating yourself to a Mexican treat! I drive from Burlington and its worth it! You do not even need to detour through downtown Hamilton. Support this small gem and maybe one day the will have a restaurant sized location, with a bar and dance floor!
