America's Taco Shop is bringing the flavors of an authentic taqueria experience to a new generation of guests. We're unlike your typical fast casual restaurant. Yes, we're fanatics about the quality of our food, but it's our authenticity that makes diners know they've just experienced something remarkable - generations of tradition in every bite.
You're not going to find our recipes in a cook book! The menu at America's Taco Shop® features family recipes straight from Culiacan, Sinaloa in Central Mexico. Our products are prepared daily using only authentic spices, fresh ingredients and premium products. We think there's something to be said for real food and we take great pride in serving fresh and authentic meals prepared with regional spices and marinades.
