Not really much from the outside and not much from the inside, but the food is surprisingly good! A bit pricey, but the portions are generous.

Once in a while I crave Taco Time so I go here. Food is always "fine" but always cold so I bring it home and warm in up. Service is always kinda unfriendly....like you are disturbing them, and everytime I order mexi fries, they are forgotten and I have to remind them when I pay.

If you feel like Mexican food and want it fast, go to Taco Time Cantina. Service was courteous, fast and the burritos we had (chicken and beef) was good.

We live several miles out of town. During our shopping days we have stopped here several times. As a fast food outlet that are tops. Always, courtesy is the best way to describe the staff. If your in a rush try this out. We'll prepared fast food and a quiet place to have a quick lunch

Now here is a fast food place that has an authentic flair to it. Good food, great price and they serve beer. Who knew.

Great place for your Mexi craving. Burritos are 50% off if you order 2 on Thursday. Mexi fries are great taters that are delicious when dipped in hot sauce. I do enjoy their crisp meat burrito. A strictly meat burrito deep fried to a crispy treat. This Taco Time has been in the same area for about 15 years.

Taco time is nothing to get too excited about...obviously...but the second we walked into this one, we knew something was different. They serve you nice cold cervezas to go along with the tasty taco treats! Deadly combo.
