I ordered basic nachos with extra cheese. Their idea of extra cheese is apparently enough cheese to cover 5-10% of the chips. I asked for more cheese and they refused. I asked for a refund for the extra cheese and they refused. The bearded guy...More

I and two other groups received refunds today before we received our food because there were two huge live roaches on the floor.

The Taco stand has been around for as long as I can remember. Great tacos, inexpensive. You order at the counter and pick up your food

If you normally eat at the most popular Mexican fast food place, then you must not have tried the Taco Stand. Real food, real fast, real tasty with a funky college vibe. I sure wish they would open one in my home town in North...More

These days when I come to Athens I always stop here. Their cheese dip is so unique with such a depth of the perfect flavored with a tiny bit of spice. I always get the mega burrito and share. It's just a consistently great meal...More

The Taco Stand is an Athens tradition, making fast, comforting tacos, burritos, and quesadillas for the past 30 years. I love The Taco Stand for sentimental reasons (and the salty chips, yummy cheese dip, tofu tacos, and veggie chili.) But, here's the problem. I used...More
