    Pros: Good, inexpensive food
    Cons: not a lot of locations

    Summary: My favorite type of food is Mexican. Any combination of tortilla chips or shells, lettuce, sour cream, cheese, and salsa with some meat or chicken will do. It doesnít matter to me if itís authentic or not. Unfortunately for me, my husband isnít real ... read more

    Pros: Quality food, great prices, very clean, and friendly staff.
    Cons: Not a lot of locations

    Summary: Taco John's is by far the best fast-food taco joint I have eaten at. I choose it above all others. I even drive 30 minutes out of my way to get their food every now and then. Granted I've had to cut back because of gas prices, but even now I try to do it ... read more

    Pros: Cheap. Probably won't kill you or require your stomach be pumped.
    Cons: Food. Tastes. Horrid.

    Summary: Maybe I'm a Mexican food snob because I live near San Francisco and frequently dine in hole-in-the-wall establishments of dubious cleanliness and no hablan englais, but truly: this was the worst "Mexican" food I've ever had, ever, ever, EVER. We were ... read more

    Pros: good food, great service
    Cons: a little on the high side for fast food

    Summary: I live in a town that has had the number 1 Taco Johns for several years. I love just about everything they have. The thing we like best is Taco Tuesdays when 2 Tacos are 99 cents. We probably go here about 3 times a month. They have ... read more

  • Taco John's vs. Taco Bell

    Nov 16, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Not bad prices
    Cons: Not as good as Taco Bell

    Summary: As a former employee of two separate restaurants in Iowa, I can honestly say that Taco John's is a direct rip-off of Taco Bell. The main difference would be names of items and prices. Taco Bell has a lot more to offer, along with a better price. After ... read more

    Cons: Not much variety for vegetarians (limited to beans, rice, potato oles or salads)

    Summary: I must tell you, before writing this review, that I work at Taco John's. Numerous people ask me if I hate the food after working there for over a year, and I always tell them that I still love it. Taco John's isn't your ordinary fast food ... read more

    Cons: A little more pricey than other fast food chains.

    Pros: Cheap and greasy
    Cons: Dirty facilities, low quality food

    Summary: Before really launching into this review, I have to say that I've only been to one Taco John's (in Golden, CO), so my opinion may not apply to Taco John's everywhere. However, I visited it at least annually (against my will) for over 8 years. It ... read more

    May 3, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: potatoes, large selection of dishes
    Cons: a tad greasy

    Summary: I don't know if I'd say Taco John's has "a whole lot of Mexican going on," but they do have a whole lot of variety for a fair price. Once you discover that Taco Bell has pretty much run the gambit on how many different ways they can ... read more

    Pros: Cheap, if you only like taco shells and lettuce, because thats all you get
    Cons: Absolutely flavorless, little product, unless your diet consists of taco shells and lettuce.

    Summary: Don't waste your time at Taco Johns. Their tacos have no flavor at all. That because you don't get anything. I remember when a taco was, a taco shell with meat, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. At Taco Johns you get the taco shell (smaller than before), a ... read more

    Cons: Taco fell apart.

    Summary: I have eaten at five different Taco Johns' and have never had a bad experience at one. The ones very nearby have closed, so now I have to go farther, which is disappointing. The tacos are probably better than Taco Bell, and I also like the Meat and ... read more

    Pros: Food tastes good, is relatively inexpensive.
    Cons: Lack of cleanliness, lack of concern by local and corporate.

    Summary: I used to dine at Taco John's frequently. I enjoyed the contrast between that restaurant and Taco Bell. It mainly came down to the sauce. I'd always DRINK a cup of the thick sauce to get my stomach working. Then, I noticed the fellow who took my order at ... read more
