Tacos N’ Subs offers fresh Tex-Mex food with the speed and affordability of a fast food chain. But unlike a fast food chain, their food is made-to-order with quality ingredients. I went for lunch on a weekday and was in and out in less than twenty minutes, and that included leisurely eating my food in the dining area!
The restaurant is conveniently located on Tennessee Street. The parking lot is a little small, but there are plenty of spaces. The inside of the restaurant is quite unique with retro décor and a laid back atmosphere. I had to laugh when I looked for a high chair and found an actual high chair that you would buy at a children’s store and not the wooden kind you typically get at restaurants.
The menu ranges from all the traditional Mexican dishes like tacos, burritos and enchiladas to all the typical American dishes like hot dogs, burgers and subs. You place your order at a counter and can either take it to go or sit in the dining room and it will be delivered to you. I ordered a small vegetarian burrito and a small grilled chicken quesadilla. I was asked what I wanted on my burrito and quesadilla and was told I could have anything I want. I liked that because it was proof that every order is made to order!
The burrito was a soft tortilla stuffed with refried beans, lettuce, tomatoes and hot sauce and topped with melted cheese. It was a decent size for a small, not greasy at all, and the veggies tasted fresh. The grilled chicken quesadilla was good but definitely heavier and greasier. It was a very basic quesadilla containing just chicken, cheese and tomatoes. It would have been great if it was served with some salsa and sour cream on the side but the cheese was excellent and the overall flavor was buttery and delicious.
