Here's what Cheapism had to say:
"There isn't much to look at in the lime green-painted El Loco Taco — except the food, of course. The strip mall restaurant offers a pretty robust menu, with everything from shrimp cocktail to chimichangas. The service is outstanding, so there's a lot of repeat business and regular customers."
