I go on and on about my love for tacos but fast food tacos are a whole different ball game.

My favorite when it comes to fast food tacos has always been Taco John’s.  It probably has something to do with my family always going there when I was little.  Between Taco Tuesday’s and Free Tacos for A’s, we ate at Taco John’s a lot.

I didn’t really start eating at Taco Bell  until I was in college.  To this day, I still really don’t like it but it’s an easy, greasy meal…especially at night.

Fortunately for us, Taco Bell is not the only fast food taco option in the Kalamazoo area.  We also have Taco Bob’s.

Taco Bob’s is a small regional with seven stores mostly in the Kalamazoo area.  I’ve been to most of them at one time or another but one of the few I haven’t is the Mattawan location.

Taco Bob’s of Mattawan is right near the corner of Main Street and McGillen Avenue.  It’s part of the somewhat new McGillen’s Crossing shopping center right as you come in to town from I-94. City Center Circle is the road that runs within the shopping center.  Taco Bob’s is one of the first stores when you come in to the parking lot from the McGillen Avenue entrance.

The restaurant is pretty small but does have several tables for dining in.  The decor is pretty muted with gray laminate floors and neutral paint on the walls.  It’s not fancy, but it’s a clean, comfortable space..much more so than similar fast food restaurants.

There’s a large menu board hanging on the wall next to the order window near the back.  I looked it over like I didn’t know what I was going to order then ordered five hard shell tacos without the tomatoes.   The cost was a little over eight bucks and it took less than five minutes for the guy working the counter to hand me a bag with a Styrofoam container holding the goods.

The thing that really makes Taco Bob’s tacos really stand out is just how full the taco shells are.  They are filled all the way to the top and even overflowing.  Yes, there is a lot of lettuce but there is quite a bit of meat in there too.   I added on a little hot sauce and these tacos are definitely better than the fast food competitors.

I know people who love Taco Bob’s.  I’m not one of those people but I do really like the place.  The tacos are better than their Tex-Mex competitors but they’re also a little more pricey.  I have a Taco Bob’s pretty close by and will walk over their occasionally when I’m in the mood for some crunchy tacos, but it’s not a place I crave…but I don’t crave this kind of tacos…some do and for those that do, Taco Bob’s is the best place in the area to get them.
