Good way to start your Saturday morning – The breakfast tacos are good size and value. I also like the fact that you can see them being made so no wondering if the kitchen is clean. They also have a little salsa bar that you can load up on. I seem to end up there in the morning after a late night. Grab three dollars and go check them out, can’t miss the big head on the outside wall.
Why Tacos A Go Go is the only place for me – Wow. I'm heart broken to read these reviews. I've been to Tacos A Go Go ... ohhh ... probably weekly [or 5 x week] for the last 2 years. Why? Well, I first started because the food is good. The staff is friendly. It's unpretentious. It's your taco truck without wheels.
Parking: the gravel/dirt lot has a handful of reserved spots before 9PM that say 'Tacos A Go Go.' - its free. Only on 1 occasion have I not been able to find parking there - it was a gorgeous Saturday morning around 9am. I found street parking a block away.
I continue to patron Tacos A Go Go because 1) the food remains consistently good. [I finally branched out from tacos too! The quesadillas are fab. As are the weekend brunch specials.] and 2) they're one of the most community minded establishments in Houston - supporting local artists, organizations and events whenever they can.
I take my visiting friends here, my parents here, people who live here but don't eat here enough ... and the only complaint is that the queso is soupy.
Long story long ... Tacos A Go Go is a local establishment catering to those of us who love good tacos, friendly faces and unpretentiousness.
It's not all that!! – I read a rave review in the AAA Texas magazine about thier Tacos. The tacos are good but not sure what all the rave was about.
Its probably better after a long night of drinking or early dismissal from the bars in the area - The Breakfst Klub. Go eat thier tacos if your drunk, then they'll be really good. The rice and beans were average.
The gravel parking lot might be free - its hard to tell, the restaurant interior is sparse - it felt Juarez authentic - and you have to ask the counter for ice if you need a refill. The Service was minimal, but it was good. No tips required.
Tacos a Oh-hell-no! – I would like to visit this place for cheap good eats. However, with the video and the dutch bags in it (which is majority of the crowd's mentality in midtown - you know it hits the nail on the head) not to mention the name of the place, caters to the wanna be causations in Houston. I will stick to Laredo's on Washington.
Some of the BEST tacos in town! – So i'm an avid taco eater and usually stick to the taquerias around town. I live right down the street and after hearing so many reviews about this place, i decided to check it out. I ordered three tacos, fish taco, egg and refried beans and egg and potato with cheese. All were TO DIE FOR! the cheese they use is sharp but adds a nice flavor to the tacos and the service was pretty good. I think I spent $6 total. I'll definitely be going back to try out their guacamole and other items.
Thanks so much for the review...glad you liked the tacos!!
Friendly, cheap, excellent food – Order taker was extremely friendly and helpful. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food and portion size. This place has a slightly alternative, urban hipster-type feel for it. It would be at home in Austin for sure...consequently, there's great people watching here too. The tacos here were better than ones double the price at Teala's. I highly recommend Tacos a Go-Go for dinner.
Thank you so much!
The best tacos in houston. period. – houston press got it right in giving this small joint awards for best taco, best guacamole and best breakfast taco. the egg tacos are cheap and you can make them with whatever ingredients you want. i've tried almost everything on the menu and my favorites are the beef fajita and grilled fish tacos. they use pollock and they are better than anyone's. it's an arty, funky little place with a community atmosphere and the music rocks. the parking is not so bad as everyone says. there is a lot dedicated to the businesses on main street and it's located on Winbern street, a small side-street. But you'll find tacos a go-go if you know west alabama because it's between that and winbern. oh -- one more thing -- they have awesome dessert tacos that are made like quesadillas on flour tortillas, all gooey and delicious. the flavors are chocolate, peanut butter and chocolate, hazelnut and chocolate, a s'more dessert taco (my fave); apple cinnamon raisin, strawberry and cream, blackberry and cream and even a pumpkin pie dessert taco, with crushed graham cracker inside. oh, well, you gotta see for yourself, i guess. :)
one more thing: i paid for all my meals with credit cards, so they do accept plastic. maybe that's new?
good for late night snack – Their breakfast tacos sold me. I got a potato, chorize, egg - there are a million types of hot sauce. voted one of the
"50 best tacos" by texas monthly if i'm not mistaken.
Watch out for unsafe parking areas...midtown has a lot of them.
Food is great...the attitude IS NOT! – This is one of the cooler places in Houston! It's long over due. However, the service fluctuates, it's either great!!..or you get the surly brown-headed girl at lunch time (who might be the manager???) whom I got today. She obviously HATES working with the clientele. I could tell before I got up to the counter she was not going to be very nice...and she wasn't. I watched her serve a nice side of attitude to everyone who approached the counter. It unfortunate because people like her can make a person NOT want to eat there. The guy who is there occasionally is much nicer. It's a common story...one dirt-bag employee ruining what could otherwise be a nice dining experience with their INFANTILE attitude. People wonder why places like Ninfa's reign supreme in this town...IT'S CALLED CUSTOMER SERVICE!! A major plus is the green sauce with chunks of avocado!!! It's complimentary...and the food IS good! Too bad they run the place like a 7th grade lunch counter. oh well. DON'T TIP THE JAR IF THEY FLIP YOU ATTITUDE. Tip the cooks instead!!!
