The BEST chips I've ever tasted. They were delivered warm and fresh to our table with salsa. When we were ordering, they said they were out of chips, but then they made some fresh and wouldn't let us pay. That goes a very long way! Chimi and taco salad were fantastic, too. Everything made fresh .

I usually get take-out food here because I live close by. I've had several different kinds (pork,beef,fish) of tacos here and they are all great! The fry bread taco shells are fantastic and filling. I get a craving for these tacos! These tacos are not only delicious, but very reasonably priced. Very friendly staff.

Second time visiting Hughies. Tacos are different than traditional, but are delicious. We had the chixken taco with chipotle sour cream. Tortilla is deepfried and fluffy. So good. I see myself craving these in the future.

Not your padre's Mexican! Fried bread style "puffy" shell makes for an interesting and very tasty variation on the taco. Be aware that this is not at all a typical Mexican restaurant but a specialty taco shop. Their taco's are not merely the star on their menu, they basically ARE THE MENU. Offered with a variety of mostly traditional fillings... More

We all had the beef tacos with "everything" (chipotle sour cream, corn, and jalapenos). Delish! The fry bread was light and flaky and the stufff on the inside??? It just blended so well together! We did do the meal option with rice and beans, but in retrospect, we'd probably forgo those items in the future. The rice and beans were... More

Get the fish tacos. But again, its all about the taco shell. We make a point of stopping whenever we get up to this region. Another great dinning experience on good ole HWY 61.

$5 Tacos with many meat choices. It is for sale, but they serve good food and for great prices. I really enjoyed their beef tacos. They also have fish, chicken, and a few more. They serve it in a hand made bread that is great taste and a fluffy texture. It's pretty much the only Taco place north of Duluth,... More

Only our second time to Hughie's, had a great Taco Salad the first time, but now on our second visit, I tried one of their 'famous' tacos. Seriously good ! Not sure what the shell is .. its not a puff pastry, but something along those lines. Combine it with the very tasty components from Hughies, and its a winner.... More

I have never had a taco quite like this. The taco shell is almost like fry bread but much lighter and thoroughly delicious. Fans of traditional Tex-Mex corn or flour tacos might initially be disappointed, but trust me when I say that these are very, very tasty. One taco is quite filling by the way, and prices are very reasonable.... More
