`If you have never tried the Potato Ole's here at Taco John's, YOU are missing out!! Crispy, hot and flavorful -- a shake of the secret topping -- will make you want to frequent this restaurant. This is one of the first stops of anyone who has been without a Taco John fix because of moving or just traveling. The... More

Place is clean was pretty busy when I was there. I like the taste of Taco bell better. I found here I only tasted the spices not the neat. People that worked here seamed not happy. Will I go back? NO!

Taco Bell may be Mexican-ish, but this place is more so, definitely for the better. The side order of potatoes is a delicious one. Right by the drink machine, there's a small area with grab-what-you-want cheese, salsa, and pico de gallo.

Average fast food restaurant. I happen to like Mexican a lot, so I go there often. I like it and they also have a drive through.

I've eaten at a lot of Taco Johns over the years, but this one just doesn't measure up. Often times the potato ole's are over-salted. The tacos have a less than desirable taste. I can't put my finger on it, but go across town to the competitor this time.

For a fast food mexican restaurant they have fresh ingredients that taste great. Potato oleos are delicious as well as the new street tacos. Their fish tacos (during Lent) were the best! Wish they would have those all the time! Their food is sooooo much better than Taco Bell where everything tastes the same, from the ground meat that is... More

The potato olés are delicious here. The tacos, however, are not as good as at Taco Bell--they just don't taste as good although obviously some other diners think otherwise. Service was good but not extraordinary.
