Love the art and atmosphere, as soon as we walked in we knew it was a good choice. The hand crafted cocktails were awesome, and the food was delicious. Our host and waiter were so nice and attentive. We will be coming back. Best experience ever

Not impressed. Very small and tables on top of each other. We had a reservation and still we were squished in between 2 couples. Drinks were ok. Guacamole was great as were the chips. Menu was small and very expensive. I got a taco salad that was more like chili instead of taco meat. It was very dark and smokey tasting. Not worth the money. The wait for food was very long. Even though we both ordered salads. Waitress was good, but service was just slow. I will not return.

This place is consistent every time! Their tacos are amazing and well priced. Loved that they stepped out of the box and elevated traditional Mexican cuisine.

The place is always full in the evenings. Service was a little slow the last visit but worth the wait.

Took the family to Truco for dinner and movie night. It’s next door to the AMC. We got there a little early and were seated immediately. The boys ordered off the kid’s menu and their food showed up in like 5 minutes. They worked fast and we appreciated it. The kids loved the beef tacos and the quesadilla with steak. We got the guacamole, and were really happy with it. Super tasty. Made right at the table. Great place to stop in for a well prepared Mexican meal and their drinks were awesome too. Would visit again

We were looking for something different and somewhat random; we live almost 30 minutes away. It was great! We all loved our meals and we WILL need back! It was also fun that it was next door to the AMC theater as we spontaneously caught a movie to round out our evening.

We have been to this restaurant before after a movie at AMC theaters. The food is great especially the margaritas. However, this time our waiter was really rushing us despite the fact that it wasn't that busy at the place. We told him we wanted to take our time, but he kept coming back after we got our appetizer and cocktails and asking us to order our entree. Later he placed the bill on our table after we took our last bites of food. Again, the place wasn't that busy.

We were pleasantly surprised by the delicious menu items and the availability of many vegetarian dishes. I loved the pre-made mango frozen margarita and enjoyed having it on the patio. The servers were all attentive and friendly.

I love having a great meal after a movie- to talk about the movie and catch up with friends- since you cannot do that in the theater! This is just feet from AMC Randhurst! And they had outdoor seating!!

Not enough items on the menu, tacos were extremely small. I heard every detail of the conversation between the 2 guys next to us, as the very small tables were way too close together.

Truco Taco is right next to the AMC in Randhurst Mall. Every time we go there we're treated like one of the family. Tasty food, different spice levels on some items.

This place never disappoints. Cocktails are great - traditional with a twist, but not in a gimmicky, Red Lobstery sort of way. The tacos are a-maz-ing. I've been here 3 times and I've not had the same tacos twice. I'd recommend it to anyone that enjoys real Mexican food.

Changed menu. Everything we liked before isn't available. Manager was very nice and said he would pass our opinions on to upper management. Good tacos. Chef is adorable. And offered different sauces for dishes we did order. They were great.
