I love the atmosphere of NuvoTaco. But the food was pretty much on par with a lot of other places. It seemed like the chicken in my burrito was sitting in a pan in lots of water/juice that washed off most of the seasoning it may have had during the cooking process. So the food didn't have much flavor. It was a good quantity, and well packed, but lacking some flavor. Service was fine, but it would be a stretch to say that it was anything above average. The atmosphere is fun, trendy with it's little lounge, and the decor. I wouldn't say to someone, you HAVE to go to NuvoTaco, but more along the lines of... "Hey, it's nearby, we can just meet up there." sort of thing.

This was a last minute decision, but glad I went. Beautiful little dine in area, outside eating options. All I had was the tacos and they were great! My friend had the quesadilla and rice and beans which she said she enjoyed. And the customer service was A1. The only setback was parking, there wasn’t a lot but I won’t hold it against, the place is lovely! We dove into to eating right away so the pics show some bites out of the food but you get it.. it was delicious 😋

Actually it is a little bit difficult to review. I had their salad once and i love it so went the this time with high expectation. I ordered food which I can’t remember the names, a soup too. They we’re delicious, but too heavy for me a little bit. The servers were great, nice just my soup was served without a spoon. When i asked for one, the nice waiter brought one for me and even kindly clean the spoon with his bare hand🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. But i am pretty sure he did that with good intention. Busy restaurant, which means they have good food and a lot of customers.

We've been coming here for several years, starting back when it was NanaTaco. Overall the food is very good. Margaritas are excellent. Stick with the afterburn marg and you can't go wrong. This visit we had garlic beef burritos and nachos. The garlic beef had great flavor, good cut of meat. They aren't as large as they used to be, but still good. The cucumber salsa was very refreshing with the nachos. I do miss the different salsas and and sides they used to have which were amazing! The ordering system is all electronic which I'm sure some love, but I like to order in person to be able to ask questions and make any changes needed. The place has a nice relaxed atmosphere, fun for friends or just hanging out any say of the week. Can't go wrong here.

Quick service. Salsa & chips and water came out quickly after we sat. I ordered the Lunazul Silver Margarita - yum! My husband got the Ranch Water, also yum! Order the Ranch Water if you want to really taste the tequila. You can taste it in the margarita too but it’s not overpowering. The salsa seems homemade and it has flavor and a little bit of spice. The shrimp tacos are so good. They clean the tables quickly after people leave and sweep under them every time so it stays clean.

Really good tacos and very affordable. Actually thought the tacos should be more expensive 😂. Nice vibe inside. Menu could be a little more clear since it doesn’t say what the toppings are for each type of taco. Also not a fan of lettuce on a taco and could have used more onions and cilantro - a toppings bar would have been nice. Vegan chorizo was very under salted, but deliciously spiced and looked homemade. Server didn’t bring the check after we were done 🤷🏻‍♂️. Overall great experience and will definitely return.

Came for lunch meet up with a buddy of mine and was not disappointed. I haven’t been here in years (when it was NanaTaco), but the food was just as good as I remember it. Order system was virtual and new for me to navigate, but I was able to figure it out. Got the chips/salsa with the 3 taco combo and both were delicious. Not super busy when I was there mid-afternoon. Great local spot for Mexican cuisine.

For a regular taco spot, I was impressed! The food was a good portion. However, it was definitely for an American palet. I liked the beef and shrimp. I'm not a huge fan of the chicken. The service was impeccable! The atmosphere and ambiance was nice for an everyday taco 🌮 joint. Would definitely go again! Ordered the 3 tocas, 1 beef, 1 shrimp, and 1 chicken!

I was pleasantly surprised by this little spot. Just their chips and salsa, alone, were great. The salsa has kind of a smokey flavor to it that is unique. Their queso has a really nice peppery flavor to it. For those that enjoy spicy, they have a house made habenero sauce that was delicious on the burrito bowl. I had a chicken burrito bowl and it was jam packed with flavor. They use rotisserie chicken and it makes a difference in flavor and juiciness. Everything paired together so well! And they give you a good amount, so you definitely get your money's worth. I will definitely be coming back.

This place is legit. I lived in Austin, Texas for some time and this place reminds me of Torchy's Tacos. So inventive and just plain good. The chips and salsa were bomb and spicy. I loved it. The Margaritas are what is needed on a hot day.
