I have to do it at least once a year. Even though it's not the original location from high school, my order is always the same: 2 meat and cheese and veggie sticks. It's an addiction for sure.

I have eaten at in-a-tub for over 50 years. They still have the best tacos around. I stop by every time I'm within 5 miles of it I live 20 miles away but it's still worth the drive. It's always clean and friendly.

Will go back very good tacos! The cheese is powder cheese, but very good but different. Doesn't look good from the outside. But don't let that make you not try it.

Taco Bell makes sadness where In a Tub makes joyful laughter and mad consumption. In a tub is hands down one of the best tacos in Kansas City! Meat and cheese lettuce and extra spicy salsa equals bliss that must be consumed immediately. Fresh meat,...More
