Went midweek about 6:30, so we were able to grab a table in this tiny restaurant. Order at one counter and wait to hear your name called for food pick up. Staff was friendly and patient with our questions. (If you hate cilantro, don't get the rice.) Enjoyed our vegetarian taco and burrito. Chips are good but quite salty. Guacamole... More

The food is so good, that the small eating area is a challenge worth undertaking. This is a KSU hot spot and from an alumni perspective I always feel right right at home.

Taco Tantos gives huge portions so don't order too much unless you want leftovers. Food was good but restaurant is small so be prepared to eat outside. The chips and salsa were yummy, I'd go back.

We went to the Venice to catch a local band. The band was good. Half the beers on their menu were "out of stock right now". The Mexican food from Taco Tonto's was Luke warm. Lots of rice and lettuce, with a little bit of what appeared to be boiled chicken in the two dishes my wife and I got.... More

Taco Tonto's is home to some of the best food that you will have and some of the best people that you will meet in Kent! If you have not tried their grub, you are missing out (I recommend the Chorizo Brunch Burrito--made with local ingredients)! You can also get their food at several other local venues: Zephyr, Venice, and... More

Taco Tanto's is not really authentic Mexican food, but they try to source local ingredients and they some amazing burrito combinations.You definitely get good value for the money because the portions are more than filling. Try some of their signature hot sauces too if you want something with heat and flavor.

A great competitor of chipotle and in many ways better, the chips are a bit salty but the burrito is banging! Just go easy on the chipotle mayo it's u can taste if they put to much. Very small sitting area so come hungry and EARLY you won't be disappointed with the food.

Visited after an evening movie. They offer a variety of burritos, tacos and beers along with soft drinks. I got a 'baby burrito' for $4.50 which was filling. Their food was fresh and everyone finished their meals.
