People tell me they go to Taco Casa every time they get back this way to Tuscaloosa. Because it is ORIGINAL. The sauce is unique. Queso is good.

Taco Casa is a T-town classic. Whenever we can't decide what we want for a fast-food dinner, TC is the call. I only order the extra hot Taco Burger. The bun is steamed so it melts into the taco meat, cheese, lettuce and tomato. The enchilada is my other go-to. The cheese sauce WILL make you lick the dish clean.

It was just okay. People from Alabama seem to really like it. I prefer Taco Bell. We had the queso nachos, which left a little to be desired. Just not use to it...

We stopped in here after the Alabama game to get something to eat. My mom loved this place back when they had several locations in Birmingham and we've been in once before, but it was just not good this time around.

First of all, the lady who took our order was very rude. She didn't seem happy to be there or particularly interested in taking our order.

Second of all, the taco and burritos were all fine (not great, but just okay), but the beans had literally NO FLAVOR! None! It was disgusting and off putting. I mean, they couldn't even manage a little salt?

Anyhow, I know Tuscaloosa folks just love this place, but in my opinion, you're better off finding something else in town.
