Tacoville - Fredrick Square (84th and Center) - CLOSED

Postby nativeomahan » Sat Jun 11, 2016 4:03 pm

Here is a place called Tacoville opening right next door to the new Jimmy Johns in front of Shopko. Any idea if this is a local concept or a chain?

Out of OKC:

Tacoville remains a food destination after nearly 50 years in business

Turns out this is an order at the counter, we will call your name when ready, fast food Mexican restaurant, that serves a minimal selection of beers...

Is the meat better than Taco Bell or Taco John's? Taco Inn in Lincoln is fast food but I really like it because their meat is much tastier that TB or TJ.

The meats looked like they were marinated and in holding bins. When I found out they served beer they redid my order, and the manager had to tell the crew that the first order of a burrito supreme was the same as the second order (with a Corona), and they didn't need to fulfill the second order. That was when I saw that they processed all orders right there in front. There was also a back room (where the manager retrieved my beer, even asking if I wanted a lime in it), but I couldn't tell what was concocted back there, I just guess the tortillas...? The burrito was kind of sparse, but was very flavorful with all the ingredients.

Not bad at all, the $3.00 Burrito Supreme certainly was about what it was worth, I was a little surprised that it was as thin as it was, compared to other Mexican fast food, but again, the additions made it worthwhile.

I've read how this was a "legendary place in Oklahoma City" lol..

From what I see, it looks to be a "meh" place to me..

That said, I'm glad Omaha was chosen as its first expansion city..

I'll give it a shot the 1st week of August after they've (hopefully) worked out all the kinks, and let you know what I think...

Ciao..LiO...Peace
Go Cowboys!

With a name like "Tacoville" I guess I was expecting a place like Voodoo taco which has lots of different tacos on the menu... I had the Combination Burrito and the Sancho. I guess it was edible for $6.

I didn't find the gigantic pan of taco meat and the gigantic pan beans right behind where you order very appetizing. I'm sure it goes on everywhere, but just looks odd.

I tried going to Tacoville today to use my Pinpoint, and they had a sign on the door saying that it was in their best interest to close. Not sure if that means permanently or not, but my guess is they are. If thats true, they only lasted a bit longer than a year.

I only ate there right after it opened. I thought they had decent food and visibility... I wonder if they franchised too far away.

I ate there about a half dozen times when I still worked in Omaha. I really wanted to like this place but never really thought they were that great. Food was average at best. Served on the cheapest paper plates you could every but, and service was marginal at best. Really wanted to see it work but can't say I am surprised with all the other options out there at their entry point.

EDIT TO ADD

No mention of being closed on their FB page or their web site.

I guess I am not surprised. I went there many times. It wasn't anything special, but it was cheap, fast, easy, and right by my house... sometimes after work, that's all your looking for...

I actually really liked it. For the money I thought it was really good.
