Great for a quick brunch - the value of the drinks is very good. Also nice that the menu is a la carte.

My daughter and I went to have lunch there. The ambien was very nice quiet and the right temperature.
We order QUESO which it was not very impressive, I had tried other much better. The food otherwise was so good, I had the eggs benedicto and were cooked right and my daughter 3 tacos and she really enjoyed them. I definitely will recommend Don Taco.

We enjoyed a great brunch. This was our first time at this restaurant which was recommended by a few friends. I had the breakfast tacos and enjoyed the bacon one the least. Overall, the tacos were solid and I couldn’t help but get the pomegranate skirt steak — DELICIOUS!! My wife had the breakfast burrito and the crepe desert. Solid stuff. First time having a MANMOsa too, it was decent.

We will return during regular doing and see if it joyous consumption continues.

Don Taco never disappoints. It’s a favorite place to take friends and family that are visiting. The service is always excellent and the food/drink is outstanding.

We were seated in the upstairs dining area, which was nice. We had the $5 margarita special, and ordered a bunch of tacos. The food was brought out remarkably quickly. We loved the Bubba Gump and the Dilly Dilly and the Bulgogi although a little salty for us. Other favorites include the fried avocado and the cauliflower tempura. We didn't care for the Al Pastor at all, and the spicy 'shroom was just okay as was the pomegranate skirt steak. The corn on the cob was tasty but should have had grill marks. All in all, we can recommend it. Did I mention the $5 margaritas?

Loved the tacos and guacamole was good. I feel like chips and salsa should be brought to the table for free, not an extra charge. 2 margaritas, couple tacos, and 1 order of guacamole was like $65!

Between 3 of us we had 7 different types of tacos + a rice bowl. No complaints an any of the food! We had several food allergies/sensitivity and the server ensured nothing had these items. Server was on top of refills and asked how our food was when food wasn’t shoved in our mouths so We could actually answer :)

Thanks!!!

Food is great - I love all the different taco varieties. And because they're small, I don't feel guilty about trying a couple of them. One member of our party is a vegetarian and she was happy with the options. The atmosphere is fun. The restrooms are always kind of gross. On this particular visit, they weren't very busy but we felt like they were trying to rush us out the door, which was kind of annoying.

Amazing, as always! We love the food here and come here at least 1x/month - food is always fresh and delicious! Tacos are awesome - our favorites are "The Cluck, Dilly Dilly, and Blue Fin". We also love the Mexican Corn. Waiter very friendly. Kid friendly.

Great place to eat at. We went for brunch on Father’s Day and it was perfect for the whole family. There is a brunch menu and a lunch menu you can order from and the Bloody Marys are great.

Overall good experience! Only recommendation would be better understanding in when to hand out the check and present it to the customer. We felt awkwardly rushed out, but I'm sure that wasn't the intention. Just a suggestion!

The tacos were amazing! However since they are small the ‘low price’ creeps up on you. $3/$4 for a taco adds up. But I will say it is worth it. The staff is friendly too.
