I grew up with taco villa, and in the realm of shitty mexican food (taco bell, bueno, etc.) I like them the best. Same company owns Rosa's which is better quality and good too for fast mexican. Pretty crazy how much Rosa's and Taco Villa has grown over the last 5 years, I wonder if he is going to bring Texas Burger(Bobby Cox's other restaurant chain) to DFW next.

I hate Taco Bell....can hardly stand to Rosa's or Taco Cabana. Taco Villa was a weekly stop when I lived in Amarillo.

Bean burrito w/ fries ftw.

11:00am on a Saturday...stop by Taco Villa order 2 meat burritos, an order of mexi fries, a large Peach Tea and an apple burrito. Then your set for a trip to the salvage yard or car show! At least that is how most of my weekends were spent back in the day.

Personally I think Texas Burger is better than whataburger and JITB, but it is also more expensive.

I've never had it, I just know that Rosa's and TV are their growth vehicles, not Texas Burger.


It's not hard to be better than JITB.

They need to add one up here in Mckinney. I always go when I'm back home in Amarillo. I always go to the one on Georgia St off of I-40. Not sure of whole story, but I believe back in the day Taco Bell bought them and closed them down in Amarillo. Lots of peeps got pissed and opened them back up.

Same thing happened in Midland, when I was little it was always Taco Villa, then at some point they all shut down and we had Taco Bell, now we are back to Taco Villa with new locations and only one Taco Bell/KFC place left in town. Almost every old Taco Villa building from back in the day is a donut shop now and I think one is Thai place.

Taco Burger!!! I love those and the Guadalajara tostada was excellent. When I was in OHS, we were at Gattis after the game and Taco Villa the rest of the time.

Had it yesterday. Meh... I am not a huge fan. I think the texture of the meat is what bugs me. Its "soft" like cat food.

Me too, it actually annoys me to hear Taco Via even if it is correct.
