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!

Their food is not like your typical mexican restaurant and not like chipotle. I love chipolte, but I wouldn't say this is a direct comparison. Taco Tonto's put their own twist on things. They warm up the burrito at the end and makes everything taste...More

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.

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

The loaded nachos with chorizo is a meal for two. Get it from the take out window at the Zephyr patio, and enjoy one of the only outdoor dining areas in Kent. The burritos are also huge, just be ready to take some home.

I go to Taco Tontos at least twice a month. They have tons of options on their menu- burritos, tacos, taco salad, quesadillas, and 2 layer tacos (hard shell taco inside a soft shell with cheese, queso, guac, or sour cream as the "glue"). They...More
