Was looking for some decent street food when I came across the second location in Hsinchu of the Taco House. It is located a few blocks from the train station just down a side street from the General Hospital and the cross street is Datong Road. Could not resist giving it a try and was not disappointed. By far the... More

We just happened by the Taco House on our family trip and decided to drop in and boy are we glad we did. The owner lived in the California Bay Area for years and brought her love for these flavors back to Taiwan. We had burritos and tacos and loved them all. If you are missing some Tex-mex fast food,...

Recently went back to Taiwan for work and had to see if this was still open. Thankfully it was, I was craving something without noodles or rice. Still a great place for a little reminder of home. Great crispy tacos and love the tater tots with cheers and sour cream on them.

I was excited having driven past Taco House a few times (it's just down the road from me) and finally got up to trying it last week. Expecting a Mexican style restaurant/takeaway experience I brought down my wife and mother in law. We ordered chicken nachos, chicken taco, beef taco, beef burrito and a chicken *something with a long name*.... More

Nothing special about the food here at all. It's bland and pretty boring. A decent sauce is sorely needed, as is a genuinely spicy option.

I looked the Taco House up using tripadvisor and was impressed that it was rated the #4 place to eat in Hsinchu, so I walked to the shop from my hotel and tried it out. What a disappointment. I ordered a steak burrito as well as a chicken burrito to see if one was better than the other. They weren't... More

I ate lunch here last week and found it to be pretty good. The price was very reasonable for the amount you get. The tacos are a little small but they are so cheap you can just order more. I have been to Taiwan 8 times before this and wish I had tried this place before. Only downside is limited... More

Went by on a Sunday and not open. No hours posted outside but I did not see a for rent/for sale sign outside. Hope it is not a permanent thing.

My husband and I are here on business for about a month. After a few weeks, we were craving something that tasted more like what we would get back home. After reading the reviews, we decided to try Taco House. I like Taco Bell, so I figured it would hit the spot. After several attempts to find Taco House (bad... More

Before I went to Taco House, I had only had Mexican food once in the 8 months I've been in Taiwan, so I was really craving a burrito and the food here hit the spot! It's true what others have said, it tastes very similar to Taco Bell, but I think it is even better, and a bit heartier, with... More
