Ate here for lunch. Place was packed, however, line goes smooth and fast. They are the best flour tacos around. Cheap and filling.

I visit here often! We all like it so it is one place we can all get what we want which saves on the arguing. I get the original tacos either Flour or Corn which are both very good. I also like the Jalapeno poppers....More

Overall great local tacos with unique fried slightly puffy shell which was different but good. The tacos are large and two of them is a good meal. The workers were very friendly and the place was clean.

We always order the original tacos. They are generously portioned. The place is consistently busy, especially during lunch time. The service is fast. The Cobblestone Corner location is our favorite, but there is a bustling lunch crowd.

There's a reason why this place usually has a long line of locals at lunch time. Tacos with a flour shell that you won't find anywhere else. My teenaged son is a fan and asks to go here whenever we visit Des Moines.

Tasty Tacos is famous in Des Moines. I have been eating there since I was born, and it has always been a favorite. It is the first place many of our friends and family ask to go when they come to town. Think of it...More
