Taco Joe's

Taco Joe's  Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Local chain, newest location. It's similar to Chipotle, which is just down the street, or Moe's Grill.  You assemble your taco or burrito from a variety of prepared ingredients.  They also serve sandwiches, nachos, quesadillas, etc.

My burrito was huge, so large that the server had difficulty folding it. Inside was a tasty combination of steak, rice, black beans, shredded cheese. Quesadillas had a decent amount of cheese.  Chips were crisp and light.

I did not care for the crispy fish taco.  A fried fish fillet served in a taco shell, with your choice of lettuce or slaw, topped with tarter or chipotle or lime.  Would have been ok if the fish hadn't been sitting on the steam table for so long.  Not something I'm likely to order again.

What makes this place a bit different is that it shares space with Yogurt & Such.  Yogurt & Such offers salads, wraps and (of course) frozen yogurt.  Salads are assembled to order in the same manner as the Taco Joe's foods.  The ingredients looked fresh, and I may give the salad a try the next time we're in that restaurant.

Drew thought the food here was better than similar products offered at Chipotle.  I thought the two were more or less the same in terms of quality and value.

But I think the mom and pop Mexican takeout places in the area are a better choice for us.
