The worst place in town to eat now. Thats saying something it used to b burger king now its taco johns that place is filthy. Look people u are eating at a dirty place and a lot of people have gotten food poisoning from there because they dont have there food cold or hot enought and it grows bacteria. Take this advice from a former employee that worked there 14+ years and had to quit and go elsewhere because of that and other stuff that was and is going on there that shouldnt be. Trust me on this i bet u that place will be shutdown soon.
Got three of their six pack and a pound, six tacos your choice hard or soft and about a pound of their oles. Oles and tacos delicious as always. It's fast food so check your items before heading home or leaving parking lot. Price here is high like everywhere else is anymore but from what I hear the employees are paid$14 an hour. That's $3 or more An hour then most fast food places. They also seem to have quicker drive through then most. Highly recommend.
So everybody seeing all the ONE STAR reviews? That is management. They have taken what was LITERALLY the best location in the nation under Garry and Sarah and managed to run it into the ground. Even through Covid restrictions Garry and Sarah were running this place professionally. Now they can't even keep the dining room open when there are no restrictions. They have gone through about a dozen really bad General Managers since Andrea left and the District Manager is completely ineffective. Just recently they lost half their remaining crew, the good people who have been there almost 10 years in some cases. They are counting pennies and losing dollars. Corporate nonsense has them driving away long time customers in droves. IF run correctly, it could easily be the same place it was just a few years ago that the entire town loved. For starters DM Marcy Barrett needs to be replaced with somebody who can actually hire effective management.
At first I thought I was going to have a miserable experience with the drive thru. We waited for a good bit, but hey went around and a wonderful young lady named Sierra got us back on track and got everything straightened out.
Always went here as they never messed up your orders unlike everyone else in marshalltown. Under new management and staff they messed up a simple order completely. Disappointed.
I ordered the Mango Shrimp Street Tacos meal. The tacos were a little on the small side but I expected that. The mango pieces were small enough that you could barely taste them. I would probably order them again.
Not even a 1 star I'll give it a 0. The young lady that took my order in drive thru never asked for any drinks or anything else with the meal. She messed up on the drinks for my girls. I won't be going back to a place that is rude at customers in the drive thru. She was snotty and rude, very UNPROFESSIONAL!
This used to be the best taco John?s location in the Midwest and after the new owners took over this year things have went down hill. Even with the pandemic the previous owners kept things moving and clean, I?ve been there 3 times since the changeover and it?s clearly a very different place. I was in the drive through the other day and noticed this white thing inside right up to the window with grime and gunk all over it. Not very clean looking.
