We sat outside on the sidewalk on a nice November afternoon and enjoyed some good food in the historic area of this wonderful city. Post Office Street was a buzz with activity and we took it all in along with nice conversation with our very friendly server. The Taquilos menu is full of Tex-Mex goodies, and for Galveston it is not overpriced. We all shared a huge plate of nachos and it was piled high and delicious. I'm ready to head back for more of the laid back fun atmosphere, and to try more off their menu.

As far as the food goes, it's good. The service is absolutely excellent. Because of the parking challenges, we won't go out of our way to go back, but we may eat there again if we're in the area.

Thank you Scott, for the great review. We're glad you enjoyed your visit with us. Next time, we have a lot about a 1/2 block away on 20th & Church Street for our guests. We'd love to have you back and would hate for parking to be a deterrent. Hope to see you again soon!

If your a fan of Beef Fajita, then Taquilos is your place. There aren't many restaurants that can compete with Pappasitos. This place can and the meat is a very nice cut of beef.
The flautas are Huge and pretty good. Bartenders are experienced and pour a nice drink.
We visit about once a week.

There's plenty of choice for food. Good and tasty food. Staff was nice and helpful. I ate the most cheesy quesadilla.

My friend & I were in Galveston for the day & I was going to take her to the place next to this place for seafood lunch. But we paused to look at Taquilo's menu & decided to give it a try as they had some decent seafood offerings. The server ( I am sorry I don't remember her name - its on my receipt at home. Started with an M) was WONDERFUL. So attentative, so friendly, we never lacked for refills or anything. She would check on us & a couple of times stopped for visit for a couple of minutes. She suggested the day's special which was seafood enchiladas. So we ordered them & a cerveche appetizer. She was right on as the seafood enchiladas were the best I have ever had. They were stuffed full of shrimp & fish & covered with a mild poblano pepper cream sauce & queso blanco. I cant wait to go back & have them again. Overall great experience.
