Taco Rico is in the strip mall at the corner of Greenbush and US 52 and I guarantee you've driven by it without even seeing it. It actually is one of the most visible places in this strip mall, but it's set off the road and with your eyes glued to the road here, you never noticed it. But you... More

We went here for dinner and the food was very good. They serve beer as well as food. The salsa they bring out with the chips has a little heat to it and I loved it. They have TVs going as well. They had a busy carryout service going while we dined in.

Great authentic Mexican food and at a cheap price. You can get a lunch for around $7. They have gorditas, flautas, tacos, ceviche, burritos, fajitas, enchiladas, y más.

The server brought my husband limes for his iced tea instead of lemons. The meal came out very quickly, we were hoping for more flavor. It was good but not hot enough flavor. The portions are very large.

I come here for the tacos. The carnitas tacos. Authentic. Seasoned well. Crunchy. Flavorful. Great texture. Simply dressed with onions and cilantro and not that uber-westernized version that's drowning in ingredients that overrun the deliciousness of the meat. I plow thru miles of construction to get here and it is always worth it. Service is always friendly! The flan is... More

THE place to get authentic Mexican food in Lafayette, Indiana. Large dinner portions as well as à la carte items, you can't miss with any of the selections here. Try the al pastor tacos and the ceviche tostada if you can't decide!

We were in town for a basketball tournament and looked for a place online with good reviews and cheap. This place wasn't too far from the gym we were at and everyone in the family likes Mexican, so we tried it. I have to admit it may have been a little different than my kids expected when we arrived as... More

Taco Rico reminds me of the food in Mexico. If you are someone that is looking for the most authentic Mexican food, than look no further. Taco Rico is it! This is not Don Pablo's or El Rodeo. Taco Rico is the real deal. It a little more pricier than the other so called Mexican restaurants but then again Taco... More

I've been here a few times and it never disappoints. It's the closest thing to real Mexican food in the area. The salsa is amazing and packs some heat.

Do not go with much expectations. Food is poor/ at best, average. First, the chips are not made in house, nor the salsa. Even the tortillas are not made fresh. All come from a packet and have the distinct taste of preservatives than the fresh taste. The same taste profile is with all menu items that they serve. You just... More
