Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Absolutely fantastic food. I spent a few summers living in Queenstown and would come here at least once a week for the nachos and a margarita. Fun staff and delicious food.

Love the tacos. Had the stockman beef, bushman pork, kentuckyman chicken and fisherman. They all had so much flavor! Really really good. The nacho chips and dips, and churros were delicious too.

The food was so fresh and delicious, very reasonably priced and good portions. Great hidden little spot, we sat inside and relaxed after a long day of site seeing. Great casual dining option in Queenstown.

Excellent food. Though there’s limited space to seat,the food is fantastic. It is made right in front of you. The ingredients are all very fresh and local. We really enjoyed our vegetarian tacos.

This was our second time at Taco Medic in Queenstown after discovering it on our first holiday to Queenstown. Our daughters have coeliac disease so we were stoked to find a yummy, fresh dining out option that is dedicated gluten free 😀 I would highly...recommend it...even if you don't have to eat gluten free! The churros were a real hit too, the girls hadn't had churros before.More

Delicious tacos that are reasonably priced. Fresh ingredients and delicious options, Taco Medic offers a quick bite in a low key environment. The only negative thing I can say is that they only offer Mexican beer and soft drinks. It would have been nice to...wash it down with an ice cold Coke.More
