The more I stop the more I realize how important and cool the family element is at Taco King...they LOVE what they do and it shows in their food. It's always a great experience at Taco King, with authentic Mexican food and a great menu variety, including daily specials (which I like when I can't make up my mind!)

Daughter had the pita taco with nachos. She loved it the chips were nacho cheese doritos with nacho cheese, her favorite new combo! Boyfriend had the California burrito with rice and beans. He said it was great. I had the Fiesta nachos, they were ok. This is not gourmet Mexican food but more like fast food. We enjoyed our quick... More

We visited The Taco King on our way home back to Minneapolis after camping for the weekend. The restaurant is decorated cleverly and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Each of the 6 of us ordered a different entree (from $7-$12) which was a great portion size without any leftovers. The chips were crisp and the salsa was fresh... More

Read the reviews for the Taco King and decided to give it a try since there are a limited choice of restaurants. This is nothing more than a fast food joint. The food was only okay. Had the Taco salad and it was nothing special. Taco shell was small. No chips and salsa like you get at a Mexican restaurant.... More

We traveled through this town, so decided to stop for a quick lunch. The ground beef was delicious. The workers were nice. The restaurant was very clean.
