The lovely host was able to accommodate our party by sitting us at two tables, then Janie was our server and she was super on top of everything!

We made a reservation, as required due to Covid guidelines, and were seated at a table away from others. We had great service and the food was really good!! This was our first time eating here and love the new menu items. I had the shrimp po boy and my husband had the cheeseburger. Both were delicious!!

Staff was helpful food was in need of some help. Price was fair for a casino, in light of the times we are in it was a marginal experience.

Food was great. Nachos and asada tacos had good flavor but service was horrible. Took 20 minutes to get our drinks and food order. Then waited almost 15 minutes for our two beers...beers not mixed drinks. We got our beers literally 5 minutes before our food came out. I asked for a lime with my modelo since there wasn’t one in it and had to eventually go to the bar myself to get it along with plates to share our nachos. It was not that busy for service to be that bad. When our waiter finally came back to our table to acknowledge us I mentioned I ended up getting my own lime and side plates. I was very tempted to not leave a tip and he ended up bringing us two beers “on the house”.

Gaby was the best server. Attentive, fun, and positive. If I went again - I would sit in her section. Ps - the taco salad is great!

Loved the tuna lettuce wraps- this is what I come there for. The chicken tacos and shrimp tacos are fabulous as well. The margaritas- top shelf,blended Strawberry and house are great too. Service is always great.

The Salsa was like tomato sauce and the food was bland. In addition, the food was served barely warm. The service was not up to par either. In short, it was a bad experience.

Went on New Year’s Eve because it’s near impossible to get a reservation anywhere in Tahoe right now. Service was okay, but food and drinks were awful. Had fajitas with rice and beans and all was bland. Ordered a cosmo to drink (basic) and it was awful. Not sure what they put in it, but it tasted nothing like a cosmo. They also charge for chips and salsa.

We went to TaCo because frankly that was the only place that was available. The top shelf margarita was your basic margarita. Ok for the price. We ordered the nachos cottage fries which were good not great. My husband liked his pork belly tacos but said it wasn’t something he would order again. The service was good. Overall the entire experience was just ok.

I was skeptical to book a reservation here because it only got 3 stars on open table. But, the food was AMAZING! We got shrimp fajitas and the midnight breakfast tacos. Just delicious! It did, however, take our waitress about 25 minutes to even get over to our table. She stated she didn’t see us sitting there, but, overall, a good dining experience.

They were a bit disorganized due to Covid compliance, but staff was trying hard.
