This chain is trying to expand to new markets but their food quality is subpar. The food is not the quality of their main competitor and is very greasy. Unless this chain improves the healthiness of its offerings, I will not be back.

My first time to Taco Johns and I will back for lunch. Although it was $3 it was a large Sausage Burrito. A little kick to it but I would order it again after working all night.

The potato Oles are great....seasoned just right crisp on the outside and creamy in the middle....I can eat em till I can't breath... The sweet tea is good... Everything else is just average.. But hey it's worth going for the tea and potato oles....

Great prices, great service, great good. Very similar to Taco Bell, probably more selection and like the salsa bar to choose from.

Totally the only item we have ordered here for literally years. Every time we're close by we try stop in for the super potato ole dish. They've downsized the platter over the last few years. But tastes just as good as always.

Good food and good service. Meat and Potato Burrito is always my go to. It's very good. They have a salsa bar and their potato ole's are the bomb.

Taco John's! Just downloaded the app, tried to use a discount for free potato oles.. Totally locked up their cash register. To compensate for the wait, they gave us a more expensive item for free. The service is friendly and the food is super good!
