Located on Alton Road, a major road on the west side of Miami Beach, Taco Rico stands as a unique combination of sit down and fast food. As the name implies, the fare found here is mostly Mexican or typical Central American dishes served in an economic package. Dishes like fajitas, empanadas, quesadillas and varied taco offerings are all found here in varying sizes.

Rather than having a server, one orders the food ahead of time at the cash register and is given a basket of chips one can accessorize in the nearby salsa bar found on the opposite side. Yet unlike a typical fast food place, the food is brought to you with a 5-10 minutes wait depending on the order and size. One might also have to contend with the large sports crowd it tends to draw with its various discount specials to tie in with the large game of the week. Therefore, space may be limited and a table may only open up after quite some time.

The food is well portioned for what one pays with the average price ranging from $3-$9 with nothing being more than $10 for a single dish. A large selection of mostly Mexican beer is available but don’t expect anything fancy from this no frills place. With hours from 8:30a.m. until 11 p.m. or midnight Taco Rico is built for an any time meal location but with a focus on food that goes well with fast paced sports served on the large screen TVs.
