    One of our fave spots for fast food lost a star this time. Lettuce was slimy, meat was probably held too long, staff was standing around. We hope things will improve!

    One of the nicest places go eat. They treat their employees amazing. They go above and beyond for people with disabilities.

    The food is great but today is the second day in a row my nacho cheese was forgotten. It’s not a big deal but it would be nice to have. And yesterday 11/13 the man on the speaker and at the window sounded kind of rude

    They have been a really good place to eat

    This location is always busy. Their drive thru is a little odd. There really isn't room for it. It works, though. The inside is shared with an Erberts and Gerberts. It's nice if some people want sandwiches and the other wants tacos. The place could use a remodel, but it's clean!

    Good food, prices are getting up there along with everyone else.

    We loved the food and atmosphere. My grandson was loving his taco salad.

    This Taco Johns experience was a step above the rest!! Fast, super friendly, clean, yet the place was busy! Big shout out to the lady working the register for upgrading me from a Meat & Potato burrito to the combo that includes a taco at virtually the same price!!!!

    Didn't give me my cheese and sour cream. Glad I paid extra for nothing.

    I'm sort of a Taco John's connoisseur.... this one is the best I've ever been to. Worth the trip. I will likely make the trip just for TJ's regularly. Great staff and the food was delicious. 10/10

    A great Father’s Day breakfast save here at TJohns. Amanda and team were welcoming and the food was really good. After a rained out day of camping this was a nice, clean, welcoming spot.

    I love this store when I walked in a female employee was giving back to our community and purchasing chocolate from a kids for a school fundraiser. Their customer service is a 10 out of 10 food was a 9 and the price was an 8 the cleanliness was at a 10 as well. This is one of the few place that place quality over quantity. Thank you Taco John's for you impressive service.

    They are very fast and you don't have to wait forever like some taco places. I do wish there were more smiles though!

  • 4/5 Randy C. 1 year ago on Google
    Don't miss late night taco "Happy Hour" starting at 8PM. The drive-thru ergonomic is pathetic at best.

  • 5/5 Kale S. 1 year ago on Google
    Drive thru was fast and great customer service thanks

  • 4/5 Martin De Z. 2 years ago on Google
    Pretty consistent service and food... The breakfast is really good... And more people should eat it... Really enjoy it for the start of my work weekend's.. The Taco's are good... Always filled right... Only complaint is that some workers done know how to wrap hard-shell tacos... Breaking the shells ..... I'm supposed to do that when I eat them... Not before... It's hard to eat broken tacos in your car during covid. Since you can't sit at a table. Other than that all good. I do wish Taco John's would add an additional hot sauce. Something a little hotter than the super hot...

  • 5/5 Dean A. 2 years ago on Google
    Good food fast service definitely one of my favorite Taco John's!

  • 2/5 Nicole F. 2 years ago on Google
    Normally have a positive experience with Taco John, but this time I ordered and ice tea and when I went to drink it there was a disgusting worm-like slug that came up the straw as well at the tea... 🤢🤮

    You're choking out a small business with two locations named after the owners father. I say boycott Taco John's until they leave Taco Chon alone. (Chon was the owners father, as mentioned).

  • 1/5 Kore B. 2 years ago on Google
    Cleanliness: One star. The lobby was disgusting. Trash all over. Had to wipe-down our own table because nobody was looking after the lobby. Customer Service: One star. Stood around waiting for someone to take our order. The person taking our order talked so softly that I had to ask her to repeat herself every time she said something. No eye contact. No smile. Accuracy: One star. My wife and I both ordered the "snack-sized" quesadillas, and were given (and charged for) the much more expensive ones. Food quality: Two stars (maybe). Potato Ole's were good (but salty). Chicken burrito was kind of mushy. The cheese used in the quesadillas seemed to be a blend of American (with some cheddar). What is it with restaurants in Minnesota and only having American cheese? Price/value: One star. As fast food goes, the prices were steep. Over $3 for a quesadilla (with bad cheese at that) is outrageous. Overall: Not even close to the quality, cleanliness, service and value you would get from a Taco Johns just about anywhere else. We recently moved from Idaho where our Taco Johns was far better than what we experienced here.

    They always seem busy, but you get an accurate order quickly and Nick always makes you feel like family when you stop in.

  • 1/5 Faustino “QUETE” S. 1 year ago on Google
    I just went and ordered a super potato Ole and went to eat it and the potatoes look a week old. Like they been in the warmer way to long. I talked to the floor manager and asked him if this was fresh he said yes it's fresh. I bit into it and the potatoes aren't even hot there warm. Very disgusting if the customer pays for quality not for some potatoes that have been sitting in the warmer way to long. Just because they don't want to throw product away and save the company money I will never go there again and the only reason I'm giving it a one in rating is because I can't give it a zero. At what point was taco John's lead to believe that is okay to serve food that's been sitting in a warmer like potatoes they should always be fresh. And hot. I'm very disappointed in there food. Lesson learned. Instead of pinching food to save company money why not keep the customers happy.
