My colleagues and I eat at Don Taco at least once a week. They have excellent food, service and prices. I can only imagine the problems and harrassment they incur from the local college patrons, and suggest that those who read this consider there are 2 locations very close to campus and both have been open a considerable amount of time. This is the "tell all" that most "bad" businesses in our town fail fairly quickly. If the food and service were bad, even the students wouldn't support the business.

As a foreword to those coming here to complain about service, I was an employee at a Don location and having first hand sober experience with the company and its patrons, I ask that you all take a moment to consider the overwhelming masses of drunken idiotic college students that poor into the place and call for deliveries. They don't know what they ordered, how many of them they wanted or what time they called. Certain locations (towers) require you to in some cases walk long distances or just wait 10 minutes for them to get to you. Then they want to get that 37 cents back from their 8.63 order. For the record drivers don't get that one dollar The Don charges for your delivery. So I waste my time and gas to deliver to you ungrateful lazy pathetic credit card toting pieces of crap for no return, you're lucky if I remember your drink the next time.

Don Taco is actually pretty good sober, but drunk it is FANTASTIC. The nachos and quesadilas are amazing. Its true they screw up orders about every other time you go there. They even have bouncers at the Grand Ave location that throw you out if you argue about your order. BUT, if you get the correct order with a right portion then there is probably not a better mexican place around.

Good mexican food at a good price. I've eaten here several times and always had prompt service and good food. Some of the other comments about this restaurant seem to be written by drunken unruly college students who order food drunk and then argue with the underpaid delivery people.

I have never been so disappointed! Ordered 2 tacos, charged for 2 tacos, got one! Called and they were extremely rude. They even mentioned that they were aware of their poor customer service. Was told that I could get my other burrito in an hour if I paid for it. WTF? Long story short... Got ripped off, disrespected, and had horrible food! Do yourself a favor and order a pizza, or anything else. Just don't support Don Taco!

worst food ever they were rude and the food was unpleasant seriously consider McDonalds.I have never experienced such dismay I literally was dumfounded when they took my order. I was very specific and they gave my order straight off the menu. When I confronted the worker all the employees started laughing after I complained. They were really rude and I was hurt by the incident.

It tasted good going in, but when the food poisoning set in and I was vomiting for 12 hours straight it no longer tasted good. Service was poor and prices were high. Don't waste your time with this place.

I have been to Don Taco quite a few times, very good, a little expensive. However, it is great food.
I even had a problem with them tonight, I ordered three tacos and I received two. I called them up and they told me that they would take care of me, and they did. Good food and service. Thank You
Don Taco!

TERRIBLE service, RUDE as can be, food is poor quality and doesn't really even make up for it in taste. If you're drunk it's just OK, but still sub-par.

EXPRESS BURRITO is much better.

The delivery of the don taco guys is worst.The guy will not even call you that the delivery is at the location.He just knock the door at once and he will go.Because,the person who gave the delivery may be in some work,if he just give him a call so that he can just come outside and pick up the delivery.So,i can give just 1/5.

Don Taco offers the best nachos money can buy. For just $2.15 you can get a cheese nacho! The secret to Don's cult success is in the cheese. Only "The Don" himself knows the secret recipe. If you choose to get meat on anything go with steak. The ground beef isn't quite up to par. The Nacho Don Taco is the ultimate; piling chicken, shrimp, and steak into one delicious dish. The #1 thing I will miss when I graduate is drunken Don Taco.
