Fast, simple, Mexican food. Nothing extravagant but the food is great. Get your fix for tacos and other basic Mexican dishes here. I love the salsa and chips actually!

Decided to go for a late lunch on a busy holiday weekend. All the other restaurants in New Hope had lines out the door. This restaurant being off the beaten path had one table with people dining. As soon as we walked in the young man behind the counter greeted us with a "Have you been here before?" as we... More

We walked in and no smell of food, just cleaner. Our fond memories made us order anyway. We got an assortment of food, and our conclusion was either microwaved or cooked poorly. Not much flavor, food was unevenly heated. "Grilled" burrito was barely discolored. Cheese was cold even in chimichanga. Felt like we were interrupting the sole employee's smoke break.

I dropped in here for lunch and decided to try three of their tacos: The Pollo Asado, the Carnitas, and the fish taco. You order at the counter and pay and they bring your order out to you. Nothing fancy, and that is fine. They also have a salsa bar with three kinds of salsa (hot, mild, and salsa verde)... More

I had heard good things about this restaurant for years and decided to stop in and was not impressed. The food was ok but lacked the flavor I had hoped for. I had a carnitas and one pollo asado taco platter $11.00 which includes rice and beans. the soft corn tortilla's were doubled but the entire taco fell apart before... More

We were able to eat vegetarian food here. Order at the counter and food is brought to the table. Could have been cleaner and friendlier. Food was okay.

Used to be so much better. Today's for was so bland I had to add a quart of salsa and hot sauce to get any taste out of it! There was no seasoning! Plenty of food for the money but NOT tasty! Go back to doing it the way you did before! (Maybe new owners or perhaps the chef died).... More

Food is not very tasty. Even for Mexican. Restaurant could be cleaner. Nothing tasted like real Mexican food.

I rarely post bad reviews. I would prefer to just review things I find to be worthy of patronage. We tried this place once over a year ago and it was mediocre. Our last visit was so bad that my husband and I picked up our plates and threw the food away and left. The young man working behind the... More

There is one reason and one reason only to visit in my opinion. It's called the Ween nickel tour of New Hope, Pennsylvania. El Taco Loco is a strange place. It's California-style Mexican but without the California or the style part. I call it Vex-Mex. The food can actually be very tasty, but it's the service that leaves a bad... More
