Taco House is a simple place and they have an inside dining room and a drive through. Be aware that they accept CASH ONLY so that I don't see you washing dishes for your food next time I am there. Everything I have ever eaten there tastes like it was made by your best cook family member to impress at... More

This place came highly recommended from a local who usually dines at very high end places. The fact that he had been going there for so many years was reassuring because a lot of these local places usually have sub-par quality or lack in cleanliness. Definitely not the case here. I had the puffy tacos and my wife had the... More

Went there yesterday for some breakfast tacos. Very old fashioned mom and pop place. Had several items on the table, tacos, enchiladas, carne guisada, and bacon and egg breakfast tacos. Everyone loved them all. Mir been around as long my family can remember. It's cash only and not fancy, but good!

Very clean and constantly giving high quality food.Everything is fresh.Very few restaurants can do the the tortilla like they do/hand made.Hugh menu,yet everything I order is great.Even the meat they use is a higher grade than most restaurants of this style.Just remember that it is an all cash restaurant.👍👍👍👀

I came here on my trip to San Antonio because I found some good reviews on Yelp, and they all said to try to puffy tacos, so my mom, boyfriend, and I all got an order of puffy tacos and they were delicious! I wish the ground beef was a little more flavorful, but the shells were great and the... More

Went in with a large order of puffy tacos. They were very accommodating. The tacos were great. Small no frills with good food. Cash only. Closed at 3pm so check hours.

This hole in the wall is known for its homemade "puffy" tacos. That's a cooked corn tortilla, hot and delicious. I finally had a ground beef taco as good as the ones I first had in the Southwest 40 years ago. So satisfying! No table service, leave your order with one of the mamas at the counter and they will...

Well I first must start with that it is a dinky looking place. None of the furnishings match but the food is good. If you want a good size taco this is the place to have one. They have a salsa bar where you serve yourself. Although, to eat here you are only allowed CASH; you leave very satisfied. I... More

This hole in the wall has tasty reasonable breakfast. They make fresh corn and flour tortillas. I give it the authentic Mexican stamp. So far I don't like the chicharones because they are soggy and look like chitterlings, everything else is yummy.
