Good, fresh and fast. Went an hour before closing on a rainy Sunday, so not too many people. Food was great and server was friendly and adept. Uncovered patio would be nice in better weather. Would definitely return!

I ordered the nachos, with the meat on the side since I'm vegetarian, and they were very good: The ranch/cheese sauce they use is unique and tasty. The rest of my table got tacos and we had a great time. There was a large selection...More

This is our kind of place. Casual vibe, friendly service, reasonable prices, and food that has benefited from innovation and care. All three of our tacos were prepared in the traditional style and served in a double layer of freshly made soft corn tortillas. And,...More

the service is always fast and the food is very tasty. I have tried many of the taco's and they are all pretty good with the Ahi tuna my favorite.

Tuco's is a great addition to the Downtown restaurant scene. It's a cool little restaurant in what used to be a garage. Food is great. The only thing I would improve is the service. It was a little inconsistent depending on who's helping you. The...More

First time here for me. Stopped here while in a visit to my daughter who lives in ROA. We wanted to have Mexican food before visiting Cancun so we stopped here.

Pitiful parking, finally inside the service was the only thing worse than the parking. The food was better than the other Mexican food I have had in Roanoke but I am afraid that just is not saying much. We are in desperate need of a...More
