I have to agree: Taco Inn is superior. There is plenty of room for improvement, though. Neither Amigos nor Taco Inn comes even close to earning 5 stars in my book. Taco Inn is in the 3-star range, and Amigos is down in the 2-star range. And that’s even after adjusting for the fact that they are fast food restaurants.

I love the fact that Taco Inn offers flour chips, and I really appreciate their salsa verde. No other fast food joint in Lincoln offers those two things. Or at least not that I’m aware of.

If I had my druthers, I’d take a chain of Oso’s scattered throughout town. But until that happens, if I want local fast food Mexican, I’ll take Taco Inn 9 times out of 10.

Ummm..

inexpensive Mexican food, and you say go to Taco Inn over Amigos?!?

If I wanted to eat dog poop that’s where I’d go (yes I remember the high school days and all the times I ate at Amigos…but taste buds have developed).

If in Lincoln and I want Mexican, I’d rather spend a couple extra bucks for good food at Oso Burrito.

(Heck, ever crawdaddies tacos are better than the poop Amigos and Taco Inn put out)

Well yes, the Inn isn’t exactly comparable to Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill or anything, but I head on over there for nachos all the time when I only have a few bucks.

There is also a drive in, 24 hour, place on west O. I have noticed that they have fish tacos but have yet to try. I have yet to find a decent fish taco in town. Oso’s leaves me unsatisfied. I would think that some chain like Wahoo’s Fish Taco or Taco Del Mar might do well here, especially Wahoo’s.

The La Mexicana grocery store and deli (and pretty good restaurant too) I have noticed sells ceviche but only once or twice a week on select days. I might head on over there to pick some up. I wouldn’t want to try and make my own and end up with food poisoning.

If Freebirds ever came up to Lincoln or Omaha I’d be in heaven.

Jamba Juice too.

Mmm…Freebirds. I could have Freebirds on Monday, Oso on Tuesday, and Chipotle on Wednesday. A couple more and I’d be set.

If you go to Taco Inn, you have to get the bean burritos.  They are the BEST!!! I can’t 4 or 5 everytime I go to Lincoln.
