I used to eat at Taco Tico in Richmond back in the 70s, long before there was any other Mexican restaurants around, grate tasking food, love their flavors. Hard to find these anymore, one on Broadway clean and very busy.

I received a gift card for taco tico. The last time I ate it was terrible and I didn't see any improvement this time. I ordered beef enchilada and got it to go. It was crammed into a hamburger size box. The sauce pour out...More
