Excellent restaurant. You will not be disappointed. Huge, no make that gigantic portions. I had the chili rellanos, 2 huge peppers with rice, beans and salad and tortillas. It would feed a family of four! Everyone had something different, all enormous platters. Staff very attentive and friendly. Building on the smaller size, plan on waiting a few for a table.

Stopped in for dinner with my family and we were all pleasantly surprised at how good the meals were. Had a variety of foods. Just the right amount of spice. Service was good, fast and the waitress kept our drinks filled which we needed due to the spice.

I highly recommend giving this place a try. Prices were average. Don't let the location scare you away. Food was very good!

Best Mexican food in town! And reasonably priced as well! Haven’t ever had a bad meal there. Their tortas- burritos - tacos- taco salad and steaks are all wonderful! Also love the pina colada and horchata
Go hungry portions are big!

This is one of the best, most authentic of the MANY Mexican restaurants in Lafayette. I LOVE the food, especially the Red Snapper, which is just like the meal I had in Puerto Rico. Delicious.
Only 2 issues with this restaurant. DO NOT SIT BY THE DOOR if it's cold out. You'll freeze. Second, the menu is in Spanish and the servers don't speak English as well as you'd like. If you have questions, it's sometimes difficult.
Other than that, I will continue to come back often, because I love Taco Rico. DELICIOUS!!

My wife and I visited this place this past weekend. The food was phenomenal eats good. It is especially good if you don't handle the heat well. They give you sauce to heat it up if you so desire. The prices are very, very reasonable for the amount of food you get. The atmosphere is very Mexican. If you leave here hungry, it is your own fault!
