Tacolicious - Palo Alto
Great food .. great service .. great value .. can’t go wrong with that :)
It was freezing cold the night we were there because the restaurant kept the door open. Everyone was wearing their coats!
The service was erratic. Even though people ordered tacos separately, they all arrived in a family style and it was difficult to figure out whose tacos were whose. We have been there previously with a group and this wasn’t the case.
It is also very noisy for conversation.
We would like to recognize Maria C for her excellent service & the food are Delicious. Will come again.
Way way over priced !!! Especially drink prices from the bar
Food is good, service is not. It had been a few years since our last visit to Tacolicious because they last time we dined here, the service was so bad. Not much has changed...oh, except now they charge a 4% “mandate fee” on your subtotal (before tax!) because (as it was explained to us when we asked), even though we were at the Palo Alto location, it is a SF based company, so...? Also, the server uses a handheld device to run your credit card at the table, then presents the device to you to add a tip then and there. I really despise this type of pressure it puts upon the diner, who has received sub-par service. Finally, to add insult to injury, even though I told the host we had a reservation upon check-in at the host stand, the restaurant ended up canceling our OpenTable reservation post-dining! Luckily, OpenTable does have great customer service and did honor the reservation. Tacolicious has delicious food, but not so much anything else. Bummer because I do like their chips and salsa, but oh well! Glad there are so many other restaurant options in the area.
Great location, great staff, great menu
Drinks were great. Food very good. Friendly & accommodating staff exceptional.
I love Tacolicious; great food and friendly service!
Excellent service. Both the Manager Victor and server Christian took amazing care of my wife and I as we met with our real estate agent.
Fun place but felt very rushed, food is super good.
Thank you for choosing to dine in with us and I'm glad you had a great time! Hope to see you again!
I think Tacolicious is okay if you order tacos although overpriced they are good tacos. I had a salad with shrimp and it cost $18.00. Seriously $18.00 for a small salad. Not worth it and definitely not good value for money.
We go here quite a lot for office outings but probably time to find a new place.
Love the food & drinks. It's just really loud inside and hard to have a conversation. But we are still big fans.
Hi Joradana! Thank you so much for joining us here at Tacolicious! Sorry to hear that it was a little too loud for your liking--next time, let your server know and we'd be more than happy to adjust it for you!! Hope to see you soon!
Food was delicious, especially the sopa de limón which was one of the tastiest soups I have EVER had! The albacore tuna tostada contramar-style was also fantastic.
I will definitely be back for more of that soup.
They were short-staffed in the kitchen, so it took 35 minutes to deliver the half of our meal, another 10 for the other half. The manager was super apologetic and didn't charge us for our drinks which I thought was more than fair.
Thank you so much for stopping by Tacolicious! I have to agree--the sopa de limon is probably one of my favorite soups I've ever had! (Not being biased!) We hope to see you soon!
Excellent Service, food is good. We dined during happy hour and the place is packed. Margarita is great, tacos for me are good but not great.
The service was great (i.e. prompt and friendly), the food was healthy and delicious, and the value was appropriate, given Bay Area prices. Highly recommend!
Thank you so much for the kind words and the 5 star rating! We really appreciate you and we hope to see you again soon!!! =)
We often go to Tacolicous Despite the cheesy name this is a terrific place. The food is good- not just the tacos. And their tacos are different from most you have had in that they are much more than some cooked beef in a taco shell. Margaritas are as good as anywhere including down the street at Reposado.
Service is really good. Ambience is fine just a bit of noise. It’s clean and nicely decorated.
Happy hour is a real deal on drinks and food. But hurry- it ends at 6pm. Lots of choices on the happy hour menu.
We ordered the kale salad which is big enough to share for 2 or 3 people. It was delicious and we also ordered several different tacos, the carnitas, fried avocado, fish and chicken, they were very tasty
I've been to Tacolicious many times. I love it every time. I'm over the moon that you are finally accepting reservations. It was such a pain before.
I miss the Filet Mignon with sauteed onions taco, very much. Today, I brought my 21 year old nephew with me, having introduced him when he was 15. Of course, that was probably a bad idea because he can eat A LOT!! Hehe! Food, and service were top-notch. But, are you saving money and not running the a/c? On a hot or, even, warm day, it's not a pleasant lunch atmosphere.
The food and service were disappointing. I've eaten at the Tacolicious in the Marina (SF) and the tacos were delicious. This location, the chips were not fresh, I'm pretty sure they forgot the potato and asparagus in my potato and asparagus taco, and I was not a fan of the fried avocado taco. I can't speak to the other tacos (we ordered multiple of each) since others in my party consumed those items. However, our overall dining experience was less than satisfying.
Kristina, First and foremost, thank you so much for giving us honest feedback. I am so sorry to hear that you did not have the best experience with us. Know that we take pride in our service and food quality and we clearly fell short. I hope you give us a chance to win you back!
The service was extremely slow, they were not friendly not did they make us feel like we would ever come back..
The service was not ideal, it was obvious there was only 1 server for the entire restaurant and it was busy. The food was good but they have increased their prices and when I saw $6.50 for a taco I thought it was a joke. After spending over $240 for a group of 5 adults and 3 kids the value was just not there for what we had and the type of service we received.
Chrissy, First and foremost, thank you so much for choosing to dine in with us! We pride ourselves here with great service and clearly, we missed that mark with your experience with us. We hope you will come back and give us another chance to try and wow you! We also have a great happy hour on weekdays from 3p-6p and again at 9:30p-CL; an affordable lunch special for the weekdays that has one of my favorites, our fried chicken torta! If you do decide to stop by again, please ask for Kat!
Valentine’s Day din. Service was a bit slow, but food and drinks are amazing.
