The Taco stand has been around for as long as I can remember. Great tacos, inexpensive. You order at the counter and pick up your food

If you normally eat at the most popular Mexican fast food place, then you must not have tried the Taco Stand. Real food, real fast, real tasty with a funky college vibe. I sure wish they would open one in my home town in North Carolina!! Tacos, quesadillas, salsa -- so good -- not HUGE but not expensive either... so... More

Economical and tasty, the T stand delivers a kind of Tex Mex in an informal dining room with ample sheltered space outside, too. Enjoy black beans or refried beans in your burrito, or with carne in a combo. Chalupas and chips are must haves. Mexican rice is good, too. Must stop for Athens tourists.

On the way to most anywhere in Athens. Ok food, fast service. Many people walk, as it is in a neighborhood.

I came to Athens in the 70's . I think the Taco Stand on Milledge has been there from the early 80's?? Can't really remember. When I was poor student I loved this place. I have a funny story... Once we were outside eating a d there was a huge rat in the corner, for kicks we threw a part... More

Great place to enjoy some good, enjoyable Mexican food and your favorite beverage. The cheese sauce is good tasting but a little thin. Chips are fresh and crisp. Large selection of tacos and burritos will satisfy most palates. This was a good fun place to eat when we were in Athens but is probably very packed for UGA game days.

These days when I come to Athens I always stop here. Their cheese dip is so unique with such a depth of the perfect flavored with a tiny bit of spice. I always get the mega burrito and share. It's just a consistently great meal & service. Of all the amazing restaurants in Athens this is my current favorite spot.

The Taco Stand is an Athens tradition, making fast, comforting tacos, burritos, and quesadillas for the past 30 years. I love The Taco Stand for sentimental reasons (and the salty chips, yummy cheese dip, tofu tacos, and veggie chili.) But, here's the problem. I used to get a lot of takeout from the Milledge location, but I have to check... More

Taco Stand is a regular staple for me! Prices are reasonable and the food is consistently good. It's not outstanding tex-mex food, but it's good and consistent and priced right, thus my rating. I love the #1 Black Beans and Rice burrito with hot sauce. Comes with drink and order of chips and salsa for under $5 (or at least... More

It won't be the best Mexican food or Mex-American food you've ever had, but it will be tasty and fast. We get a quick meal here about once a week and it is cheap, fast and easy, but made from real ingredients unlike your average fast food chain. Chips are freshly prepared and cooked, salsas are made in the kitchen... More
