This restaurant is on the Ave of flags right off hwy 101. We stopped by on our way back home & were very surprised at how authentic it is! The cashier Sebastian was very friendly & helpful in recommending entrees. We had the chicken enchiladas & a taco salad & both were delicious! The prices are just right! This is... More

Right off, I'm not an authentic Mexican food fan! My friends and I stopped for an early lunch on a Saturday. I had two soft shell chicken tacos and was disappointed that the shells were not made fresh on-site. The tacos were ok. My friends ordered platters, beans and nachos and there were no complaints. There are a lot of... More

We were looking for a late night dinner (8:00 PM) and found this place while driving around Buellton. It seemed like a popular place among locals and the lady behind the cash register was very friendly. We had the chicken fajita and was served sizzling. It was delicious. Although the place was small and ordinary, it was clean and service... More

We just had lunch at this place. Really cheap. And DELICIOUS!!! It's a fast food style restaurant. So, don't expect to be served at the table. But the portions were generous and the flavor was real Mexican. Nothing to complain about.

The selections are extensive for this small walk-in/dine in location. The fish tacos and all burritos are filling and tasty

Basic mexican food. Seems good for breakfast or lunch at least. Had machaca and eggs and also a taco salad and cheese quesadilla for child. Very nice and friendly service. Not a fancy place but hits the spot.

Taco Roco was close to the RV park we were staying at. I had the fish taco's and the young man who took my order got my order wrong, fried fish instead of grilled for my taco's. I decided I was to tired to wait for my order to be corrected but they were tasty. My husband has the beef... More

The best tacos on the west coast. They also have potato tacos for sale which is usually not offered at other Mexican cafes.

We popped in for breakfast burritos while staying at the Flying Flags across the street. We ordered the chorizo burrito and the machaca burrito. They were huge, hot and very delicious! They also serve pancakes and "American" style breakfast. Super yummy!
