All Taco Cabana's in SA.
Taco Cabana use to be the place to go in the yearly 90's, but not anymore.
I have tried various location within the past 5 years, and all of their stores have gone down hill in their food quality and safety! The fajitas are over cooked and dry, chicken undercooked at some locations, food is served cold, and miscellaneous (non food) items found inside of the food.
For the safety of my family and myself, I no longer eat their food!
Crapiest of the Taco Cabannas I have been to.
(Not sure on the post below about it being shut down, cause the place is up and running, may of been temporarily closed till they fixed it, but im sure they need to be checked again)
I would rate 3 negative stars if it were up to me.
For those who dont know what it is=Its beans out of a can, and packaged food that most basic 'fast foods' deliver, but I wouldnt so much knock 'taco cabana' entirely just because of this one. There are two closer to where I live that are good enough to expectations of drive through but this one just disgusted me.
-Im just talking on the food level, that itself didnt even make me want to think of going inside after the 2nd time i ordered through the drive-thru.
-I work not far from this one, and one night decided to order there cheese enchiladas dinner plate. They were horrible, and my job was less then 2 minutes away, and when i got to work it all was cold (the rice, beans, and enchiladas). Also there were non-cooked piece of onion in it, which I could never remember being in the dish from the other taco cabanas i have order from before.
I do my best not to give a negative report on a place just cause I went there once, I'll at least give it a second try.
So I did, and guess what. Cold and un-cooked onions.
-I would call it in, but I pull a 12 hour shift and by the time i get off im not interested in each fast foot, i just wont to go home and lay down, and I wouldnt want to chance another disgusting plate of cold food for free.
P.S: and just to make sure I went to the one by my house before I took off to work, and ordered the same plate, takes me about 20 minutes to get to my job, and guess what, the enchiladas, beans, and rice were still piping hot from the taco cabana by my house and tasted great.
THERE are extreme issues with the one on San Pedro, id have to say if you think to stop there, DONT, go somewhere else, I highly dispies Mc Donalds but sadly id be willing to order there if there was no other choice between them and that taco cabana.
WARNING: This Placed was Shut Down by the City as UNCLEAN. These are comments about a famous San Antonio institution I never thought I woulod ever have to write, but they are sadly all to true. The City of San Antonio shut them down for having EXTREME UNCLEAN Kitchen (CitySearch won't permit the real words referring directly to lots of four legged crawlers). This was a rare step they took and most likely this speaks to just how bad the problem was/is. I'm sure they will point the finger at the teenagers they employ at minimum wages and promptly make scapegoats of them. This is a huge problem and speaks directly to the executive management and ownership of what can now only be regarded as a filthy, unfit for human consumption chain. Shame on every corporate manager they have for either allowing it or being so incredably ignorant. I will not eat there again and I highly recommend that you do not either.
Originally a taco palapa in a defunct Dairy Queen--now a Tex-Mex institution, especially for the late-night set..
Most Taco Cabanas have a hot-pink exterior with a festive look that's echoed by a colorful sun-drenched interior and a palm-shaded patio. This flagship location, with its covered, indoor-outdoor dining area, is slightly different, owing to its peculiar origin. Restrooms are around back, and the overall feel is funky. During the wee hours, expect boisterous revelers still giddy from dance and drink.
Nearly everything is pretty good, but the flour tortillas--hot, homemade and delicious when slathered in butter or dipped in the sauce of the cilantro-heavy "borracho beans"--offer the best tastes by far. The fajita beef is surprisingly tasty, and the guacamole is always fresh, but avoid the bland queso. The best deal--the flameante (rotisserie-grilled) plate--has chicken that's juicy and well-flavored by the lime marinade. Top off any order with jalapenos, onions, fresh cilantro and various salsas at the condiment bar.
Good Food To Go.. Fast food Mexican that is tasty and much more authentic then taco bell. Great food at great prices and they have drive thru!!!
Good Quick Mexican Food. The Taco Cabano located on Bandera & Guilbeau Rds. is the best around. I've been to other locations around San Antonio but this one is the best by far. The staff is very friendly, the portions are plentiful and the price is phenominal My husband and I can both eat for $6.65 and we are both stuffed.
It's not that great.... Taco Cabana isn't that great anymore. It used to the place to go after a night of partying, but they've gotten so slow and sloppy. Now my friends and I go to Chacho's or Las Palapas.
Best Pollo in town. I dont know about their enchiladas or other entrees, but they have the best Chicken Fajitas I have ever tasted ANYWHERE. Their beef fajitas are good but I have had better, good salsa and good tortillas. The ambiance is low because they can get too loud at times...Good Cheap Chicken Fajitas. Drive Thru can take two minutes or twenty minutes so I usually go inside for take out.
food quality is a POOR excuse for MEXICAN? Cusine
many that I have been in need cleaner conditions
Are you kidding?. Taco Cabana USED to be good, before it was sold. Anyone who votes this eatery as good, hasn't eaten real Mexican food, or even good food for that matter.
