Taco Inn could easily be on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. It’s a dive, but it reminds me of my childhood and a place high-schoolers stopped at for their open lunch back in the day. The juke box has long been removed, but there are still the same red pepper dotted table cloths and sombreros on the wall from when I was a kid.
The menu hangs on the wall by the order counter and has the old favorites, but the new owners have added some items to make it their own. After placing my order, I filled my drink, took a seat, and waited for my order to be brought out.
I ordered the Burrito Dinner with double salad and no refried beans. The chips are salty, store-bought rounds but I didn’t expect them to make their own. My burrito was a nice temperature with a strong flavored chili with beans; I personally hate chili without beans. The burrito shell, or tortilla depending on who you are, was warm and soft while the cheese was melted perfectly and my salad was crispy cold.
Keep in mind this is a hole-in-the-wall in a small town. The food is Tex-Mex but always good and consistent, which this chick can appreciate. Overall, a great spot if you are looking to fill up and don’t expect anything groundbreaking.
