First time here and totally loved it. Great flavor choices for wings and they were just perfect. They knew how to do hot wings! Crunch wrap was great too. Price was reasonable. Portion was good. Service was quick. Definitely a winner!

Make no mistake: this is NOT Authentic TexMex. What it IS: excellent Mexican styled food. The Wings are truly the best in town, the pulled pork crunch wrap is Delicious! Heat seekers will not be disappointed. Reasonable prices for the area.

Maybe best chicken wings on the planet! So so great. Thai chili is my fave. Many other flavors. Hot is hot.

On vacation and passing through town with a lunchtime appetite that couldn't wait to be satisfied. Walked in with no recommendation or expectation and this place served the purpose well. Service was quick and food was tasty. What more can you ask for?

Was told this was decent Mexican. I live in the southwest. This was a poor imitation and maybe a step above Taco Bell. Would not go back.

We had some Mexican standards like burritos and quesadillas, but the nachos knocked us out. Everything seemed very fresh and tasty. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

I really like Borracho Taco, but the calling the food "Mexican" is more related to inspiration than real connection to traditional Mexican cooking techniques. It is a lot of fun to eat here, and if I had a large group with some picky eaters, this would be an idea place to come--it has both meat and vegi options, hot and... More

The food is made fresh and one can order from mild to spicy; so it is great for the entire family. I trust that I will always get a great meal at a good price and will never worry about how the food is handled. Can I say it again it is clean and I trust the staff who are... More
