This is a good place to get a quick bite to eat if you're in a rush. I have gone through the drive-thru many times and the wait time was short. Wouldn't eat there every day. but the food as usually okay.

We decided on Taco Tico for a quick lunch while running errands as we hadn't been there in quite a while. I know this review goes against the grain as to the overall rating but it just wasn't a particularly pleasant experience. The place really...More

If your not from Dodge you might not understand the attraction but more people stop home and have Tico or have it shipped to them than any other place in town...its just part of being a native.

Catered my daughter's wedding. Food was plentiful and easy to put in my serving dishes. People were impressed with the food and condiments. Great price!

Having grown up on Tico, I had a twice in 3 days on my last visit. They have the best meat and my favorite is the classic Tico Dinner!

One of the locals favorite go to resturant. Clean, friendly staff, great selection of food. Not your typical mexican resturant

Another local favorite. This is Mexican fast food. Prices are very reasonable. You may add extras to your food such as different sauces, jalapeños, olives, and onions. I recommend the Texas burrito and their chips and salsa. Drive up is available too

So it's been over 20 years since I've seen a Taco-Tico. Glad that I stopped in to try it. The place has a SouthWest Tex-Mex atmosphere. Menu was extensive, but some pics on menu board are needed. Food was good, and the service was good.
