If you like authentic Mexican food, this is the place. The azada tacos are amazing. Simple, no frills and delicious!

I've been looking for a good Mexican restaurant in Lafayette for a while now as I am frequently here for business. I'm glad to say I found it. The food has a more traditional flair to it as they even ask you if you'd like your tacos Mexican style or American style. There is plenty of variety, everything is good,... More

Fresh, traditional food served by a friendly staff. A full menu of well spiced choices to satisfy a wide variety of tastes. They bring three additional sauces with your meal. Clean comfortable and pleasant atmosphere make for a nice meal

Even though this place is located in an average looking strip mall, the Mexican cuisine is way above average. Roomy and very clean. Several tvs with Spanish stations on very low volume. The two servers were bilingual and ready to answer our numerous questions. Chips and salsa perfect start-with lines on the side. Hearty portions. Would be easy to share... More

Very good food at a very good price. I find the salsa to be a bit too marinara for my liking. Otherwise very good.

Taco Rico is in the strip mall at the corner of Greenbush and US 52 and I guarantee you've driven by it without even seeing it. It actually is one of the most visible places in this strip mall, but it's set off the road and with your eyes glued to the road here, you never noticed it. But you... More

We went here for dinner and the food was very good. They serve beer as well as food. The salsa they bring out with the chips has a little heat to it and I loved it. They have TVs going as well. They had a busy carryout service going while we dined in.

Great authentic Mexican food and at a cheap price. You can get a lunch for around $7. They have gorditas, flautas, tacos, ceviche, burritos, fajitas, enchiladas, y más.

The server brought my husband limes for his iced tea instead of lemons. The meal came out very quickly, we were hoping for more flavor. It was good but not hot enough flavor. The portions are very large.

I come here for the tacos. The carnitas tacos. Authentic. Seasoned well. Crunchy. Flavorful. Great texture. Simply dressed with onions and cilantro and not that uber-westernized version that's drowning in ingredients that overrun the deliciousness of the meat. I plow thru miles of construction to get here and it is always worth it. Service is always friendly! The flan is... More
