Taco Mama - Birmingham, AL & Auburn, AL
So there is a Taco Mama in both the cities I live. they both popped up within months of themselves. While I have been to the one in Birmingham more than the one in Auburn, I think this review will be useful for both locations (an probably any others that are around as well).
So it's not the best tacos I have ever had (Click here for my favorites) but when you factor in all of the perks it's still a pretty sweet spot. So The tacos are good in both crunchy shell and soft shell. I'm not a fan of the shredded meat but I did enjoy the chicken, steak, shrimp, and ground beef tacos (I would tell you about the flounder, but I am deathly allergic (yikes)). These are tex mex tacos, which I typically prefer over the authentic stuff. So they use yellow cheese and flour tortillas, so if that's your thing you'll enjoy it.
I like the energy of the restaurant. I'm quite the fan of the garage door deal, it makes the retaurant feel like you're eating outside without the sacrifice of air conditioning.
Pros: Great Ambiance. Decent Food.
Cons: Slightly Over priced. Perpetually Busy.
Verdict: Yea I'll go back if its conveinient.
