Mexican restaurant with good food. Very busy and sometimes hard to find a seat. Ladies work very hard at customer service. Good food for a good price.

It's a local favorite. It's not fancy but affordable and good. Staff is very friendly. We have never had to wait long to sit down or for our food.

The wait staff are very nice and inviting. Food portions are rather large for a good price. Salsa is super good. I highly recommend the fajitas. They are a very large portion for less then $10. Small dinning area but definitely worth it.

Truly a unique restaurant that reminds me of Mexico. It is seldom that you get your food as good as you see in the menu's picture, and in Taco Loco, it is better than the picture! Service is very friendly, and fast. If you are...More

We were looking for a place to eat in Brighton on a Friday night and they were all packed. We hadn't tried Taco Loco but decided to stop in. The service was attentive considering it was really busy. The seating was limited and we ended...More
