These are three dollar tacos for only 99 cents. Soft corn tortillas or crispy. I ordered soft shell traditional style. One shredded chicken, one carnitas, and one pastor. At the self-serve fresh salsa bar I got a ramekin of salsa colorado and extra chopped cilantro. This is good Mexican groceries.

Food is always good and authentic here. Look for the backyard area, there are tables and lots of shade and grass.

We have used this restaurant primarily as a fast food place. I usually order the grilled shrimp taco. It used to be great, but now the shrimp are chewy, like they aren't very fresh or are overcooked. I don't plan on going back anytime soon. I've chanced ordering this several times hoping it would get better. They do serve other... More

But I love the crispy chicken tacos. I don't even like tacos in other places, but these are so fresh that I couldn't resist. It isn't dirt cheap, but it is... More

Stopped in to Taco Roco in Buellton on my to San Luis Obispo. It's small place with walk-up counter service. I ordered the Machaca and Eggs, which came with beans, flour tortillas and hash browns. Very good food and plenty of it for under six bucks.
