This place is great for lunch or dinner. They tacos are greasy but they are fantastic. I like the fried mushrooms too. Been going to this place for long time and will just keep going.

Not your run of the mill taco place. Family owned and operated, people come home from where they've moved in different states just for a Tasty Taco original. I also love the original burrito. The lack of ambiance is more than made up for by the food. Other locations, like the one in Jordan Creek in West Des Moines have... More

I have been eating Tasty Tacos for over 10 years of my life and it's consistently good eatin'. However this visit could have been better if the place was a little bit cleaner.

When I was next door tanning the front desk clerk recommended Tasty Taco to me as I was looking for a nearby lunch spot. The taco was amazing, everything it was said to be and plenty of it. Order just one and you will be full!

Fast service but very casual atmosphere - booths are not real comfortable but okay. The deep fried taco is delicious.

If you come to visit in Des Moines Iowa then you must go to Tasty Taco. This is the local favorite. A must order is the original taco, with the flour tortilla. And don't forget the hot sauce. They make it fresh and its the best thing ever.

One does not simply come to Des Moines and NOT visit Tasty Taco's. It's an Iowa experience. Like the State Fair. Like RAGBRAI.

Tasty Tacos makes awesome flour tacos! The shells are hot & crispy. Must get them & eat them there, they're not nearly as good cold. Once you've had one you'll never want to go elsewhere.

While my niece was visiting from Colorado, I wanted to show her the food, sights and sounds of Des Moines. We had lunch at TASTY TACOS during the State Fair. We ordered, got our food right away and headed out to see more of Des Moines! It was a great lunch.
