Came here early one morning and couldn't understand how I'd lived without Tio Dan's Puffy Tacos for so many years. They're amazing!

Oh my goodness - Tio Dan's Puffy Tacos are some of the best tacos around. Very fairly priced and prepared in a way very different from all others. Super crunchy and soft all at the same time! So good.

8 of us enjoyed a variety of meals from chimichangas to puffy tacos. The chips and sauce were hot and fresh. The queso was deliciously devoured by both tables. Nothing left on our plates. ****Juan was very kind to us.

After 35 years in Round Rock, I decided to try Mexican food near I-35/Mays. I have avoided Tio Dan's Puffy Taco because I assumed it was some "cut the corners" and Mexican Gringo place. What a fool am I. I had their famous Puffy Tacos...More

Was not a great experience. My wife ordered the Puffy Tacos and was mostly pleased with freshness and preparation. I order beef fajitas. It was 8pm and they were out of beef. My backup, chicken fajitas were "ok". Waitress was new, but obviously had little...More
