Reviews of Nico's Taco Shop

Very unprofessional on the phone when I put in my order. When picking up the food, was very dirty inside and the two men working were playing on their phone and didn't even notice I was standing there waiting to pick my food up. Finally they came over to give me my food but I almost told them to cover it since they weren't professional and the joint was yucky looking inside. Definitely need to clean up their place and their act before I go back to that location.

This Nico is consistent in the quality of their food ... delicious! My favorite is the carnitas burrito. Enough to last two meals. The staff is warm and friendly. Live in Texas. Always stop here when coming thru Tucson! Been going there for years.

The service was nice but the food was subpar. I got the fish tacos and they used a frozen fish patty. It tasted terrible.

I give Nico's a very good rating. The place is always clean and the service has always been fast and friendly. Unlike Robert, I've never had any problem ordering in English.

They could keep it a little cleaner but Nico's is good stuff if you are looking for decent Mexican Food. To the other poster that said they won't speak english..... how authentic do you want your food?

review_stars 04/11/2009 -
Horrible service. They refuse to speak English so expect your burrito with whatever they want to put on it. And I do mean eanything!
