Stopped here on our way back to Oklahoma from visiting Yellowstone. Ordered chips and queso... got some funny looks. When the queso came out it was really cold and thick. Enchiladas were average. My husband had a combo platter that he wasn't expressed with. People were very very nice but service was not great for as slow as it was.

Nice people own this. They usually have it very clean. The food is ok but if you like spicier, more flavorful food, it probably isn't for you. The salsa is really plain, no chunks, not a lot of flavor. My husband loves their white sauce that we can't get anywhere else and he likes a milder spice so that is... More

We had a really good meal here. The service was fine. The menu offered many good choices I had a hard time deciding what to get but was very happy with my meal. Would definitely go back there

They have Pepsi products, not a fan. However the freshly brewed ice tea was delicious!!! The cheese dip was not like any we've had before (thick, white and bland). It was ok after we poured the salsa into the dip. Chips were fresh and crisp. Salsa was like picante sauce, ok. My husband got the beef chimi with red sauce.... More

Wife and I ate there for lunch. My wife is Mexican and you cannot get anything past her with hit come to making original Mexican food. This was very good food. The owners and cook are all Hispanic. So it is the real deal.......we did enjoy it, Went back a second time.

Late dinner after long day in Yellowstone and Grand Teton Natl Parks. Conveniently located in Cody on the Hwy to/from East Entrance Yellowstone (away from the busier downtown). Small, Traditional Mexican, family business. Very hard-working staff. Good food. Beer and tequila drinks, maybe wine? Downside: they close at 8:30 still light seems early for summertime.

Authentic home cooked Mexican food in Cody Wyoming! What a surprise! Family of seven and we all enjoyed our food. Small, family owned and operated. Service was very good. Food was hot, fresh and delicious.

We were skeptical about finding good Mexican food in Cody, but Taco El Taconazo was the real deal. It's super clean and cozy. It's legit Mexican food with affordable prices. We had the big burrito with the trio of salsas and it was delicious. The homemade guacamole was really tasty too! Great place for a family dinner!
