Tex-Mex
He’s a solid citizen with talent and charm. To our good fortune he just happens to hail from Texas and he can cook and he can sing. And he loves to do both. That’s how Tex Tubb’s Taco Palace came to be. It’s where his two worlds collide. It’s informal, friendly, casual, rustic, chaotic, comfortable, affordable, and fun. A joint, a bar with great food, authentic food. It’s his home away from home, it’s his palace.

The food and service were was fine. We were sad to see the menu had been downsized quite a bit. There are limited choices and faitas are no longer on the menu which is an item my family has loved in the past. Due to the limited menu we will most likely go elsewhere for Mexican where there is a full choice menu.

Stopped to have a flight of margaritas and food. Server was pleasant and attentive, and the service was quick. Would definitely recommend to stop for a visit.

I come to Tex Tubb's often for dinners and this time the service seemed sub par compared to other times eating here. Every time we interacted with someone, it was always a different person in the waitstaff. Took about 15-20 minutes just for someone to take our order. Overall, it was a good time like always. I assume that they were just really busy.

Always real good food. Taco, burritos, enchiladas are great. Touch pricy, but worth it. Kids loved it as well.

I order the smoked pork taco salad every time I come and this time it was all fat almost every piece of meat and it tasted as though it’s shelf life was overdue. The last who sat us was very friendly she said she would grab water and they were doing a shift change so we waited quite a while (understandable I work in industry), and then we received the new waiter for the night who seemed as though he either didn’t enjoy his job, didn’t want to be there, or our needs were annoying or too much for him. We love the food here so we will try again I know times are hard but eating out is what has been getting my family out of the house And sane and we would only hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Food was good, we were sad there was a reduced menu (due to covid) and we missed the usual hustle and bustle of Tex Tubbs. We can't wait for it to all be back like it used to be!

As a Texan who recently moved to the Midwest, this is the best food and most authentic Tex-Mex I’ve had in a long time! Great service and experience always, would recommend to anyone. Make sure you get a Shiner too!

Upon entering the restaurant we were not greeted very kindly. We were rushed to be sat and then had many interactions with people who were running food and beverages to our table that were not pleasant. People were unkind in their tone and body language. I know that COVID has made things different for us all, however you can still be friendly when providing service to the table. Our food was awful as well. The meat had a lot of gristle in the tacos and it did not taste fresh. We were very disappointed.

Great food! Made reservations to respect 25% capacity and then couldn't modify it to come earlier- and no one was in there. Small inconvenience for good food

Friendly staff and great food! They had safety precautions in place that made us feel very comfortable eating inside.
