We swung thru Taco Mama during a road trip, just passing thru town. This was the perfect stop for our young family.The staff were friendly and helpful. Maddie especially helped answer questions about the menu and recommended items for us with kindness.We definitely appreciated being made comfortable without much fanfare. Plus the food is delicious!

Taco mama is a fun place with delicious food. There is something for everyone. We always visit when at The University of Alabama. I had the beef burrito which came with a side of nachos and salsa. It is light and fresh tasting. I also had a side of queso which was smooth, creamy and perfect with the nachos. We ordered a skinny margarita pitcher and a spicy margarita pitcher. Very good!

Aside from a lengthy wait to be served (due to popularity I'm sure) we had an excellent an enjoyable lunch here. The staff were very pleasant, and the food was reasonably priced and delicious with generous portion sizes. I would recommend this place and I'd come here again next time I'm in Tuscaloosa.

This place was amazing!! Love that you can build your own tacos, nachos, and burritos! The number of free toppings they offer is outstanding, as they would cost at other places. Also appreciate the free chips and salsa that comes with the meals. They are also very efficient, as it was busy but we got our food right away. If I am ever back in the area, will definitely be back!

It was okay. To me it wasn’t all that flavorful at all. What we did like was the area outside to sit an eat, we had a big party with us. Oh and they are fast with your order. When you get drinks stay up front to get them. If not it will be watered down from the ice.

I got 2 tacos and the elote. The tacos were good, but the elote was gr8. Also got the pomegranate margarita, which was pretty good too. Not too expensive and nice/quick staff.

This is the new place for tacos. Service is good but the wait to order is a little long.

Taco Mama is good, I have limited experience eating there and Tuscaloosa has many good Mexican type restaurants. I just don't recommend getting the braised beef for your tacos. Not only bland, it's cubed and some of it is just inedible soft fat. Otherwise, many locals consider them above average....and recommend it.


Fun, busy and obviously very popular. We came for lunch and were not disappointed. It was hard to decide, but ultimately we got a salad and burrito - both with chicken. The chicken was lean and cooked to perfection. Delicious lunch!

First time going and dining in. We ordered food from inside first at counter which was different and sat outside which was clean. Handicap parking available, I ordered Fatboy which was good and it filled me up, so if I was drinking it's good for that.

Delicious! Fresh! So much fun!We ate there during Covid and social distancing was fabulous. However with it mostly open air seating I can imagine it would be great in a time. We visit Tuscaloosa a lot and had never ventured down here, But now I will put it in the regular rotation a restaurant. I strongly suggest whatever tacos you order, get the Mexican macaroni and cheese as a side! Game changer.
