I have never been to Mexico so can't compare Taco-Trio's food to the 'real deal' but suspect the food at Taco-Trio would compare very favorably (it is the real deal in my mind) - I have gotten hooked on their Burrito's and tried their New Fish Taco - now I have a problem - guess I will just have to...

I went one time with a friend. The food was somewhere better than average but short of very good. This is a small neighborhood restaurant so there isn't much authentic atmosphere at all. Prices were reasonable. Would I go back again? Possibly but probably not considering there are so many restaurants in the Greater Portland area to try.

Very good tacos, unique flavors and combinations. It's a very popular place, so sometimes there's a wait. I will definitely be going back for the tacos. The fish tacos and vegetarian ones are the best, according to me.

Good Mexican food and fast friendly service. What you would expect from a fast paced take out serve yourself restaurant.

When moving here from San Diego, California we were struggling trying to find decent Mexican food. We found this place and it's like being back home. This is the real deal, the food is great, and fresh, and the burritos are huge. it's a small place, but they do have seating inside. I would love to see outside seating. I... More

Mexican food and Maine is a contradiction in terms, but this place makes it great. Tacos, tamales, all the usual with a great salsa bar and an intimate, off the grid setting. We love it here!

I ordered two fish tacos, at approx. $5 each. Each had a small strip of tasteless soggy fish, lettuce, and an excessive amount of mayonnaise-based "Mexican White Sauce". The tacos tested like a lot of mayonnaise in a soft taco shell. I tried to remove as much of the sauce as I could but it was mixed in with the... More

The restaurant is small, but did a lot of business while we were here for dinner. We had a vegetable burrito, chicken tacos, chicken burrito, and some assorted tacos. Service was very fast, and there was a lot of rice, beans and chicken in my burrito. The food was ok, but I've had better. Prices were reasonable.

Thank jerrys01
