We were visiting the University and this place was recommended. Very small, but the food is very big. Burritos were fantastic, although the price is a little high especially for a college town. We got basic burritos and a drink/beer and it was> $26 for...More

The menu is huge. So many great choices it’s hard to pick. Been there many times and have never had a bad meal or service. Sometimes the wait for your food is a bit long but it’s worth it!

I always get takeout but there seating where you can have a beer while eating. There are vegan and gluten free choices. I have never been disappointed.

I head to Taco Tonto's 15-20 times per year, usually on Fridays when they serve fish tacos! They're the best. I used to go with the El Biggo burritos. They're excellent, but they're simply too much food. Thus, the switch to hardshell fish tacos. Perfect!

I come to Kent to visit family and now I'm hooked on Taco Tonto's. Everything is delicious from entrees to sides. Love how they grill the burritos. Great hot sauces, queso, and guac.

Taco Tonto's fare is delicious and different than the "other Mexican" places in the area. Their burritos are grilled and really good- esp the chicken one. I think the last time I went I got a burrito with sweet potatoes. Very unique and definitely a...More

Honestly a great place for lunch. Great beer selections and you can modify your burrito how ever you want. They're quite massive though. No matter what size you get it'll be bigger than you are expecting.

This is a very trendy dive-like taco shop. Loud music, stickers on the walls, etc. It was pretty affordable and definitely tasty. We got the special tandoori burrito, which was baked, but we felt it was a bit heavy on the meat and thus hard...More
