First Review by TerryChiasson

WOW - Edit

I ordered this from takeout taxi to my hotel and was skeptical because I thought it would've been cold and not tasty by arrival. Was I ever wrong! These were hands down the best tacos I ever had! I'm going back here again before I leave!

Yummy!!! - Edit

Went there for supper yesterday. We were 4 adults and two young children. The staff was awesome. When our grandson said the mac and cheese was too spicy, the staff was willing to accommodate. The food was amazing!!! The service was extraordinary!! So glad to have found this ittle gem in Sudbury. Will definitely be back. The only thing that would make it better would be if they had a better and more comfortable interior. We are on the patio and it was great but the inside feels like a cafeteria.

Pros: the service, the food

Cons: the cafeteria look inside

Sombreros and Coats - Edit

Was passing by Sudbury and needed to eat. Was delighted to find a Vegan place!
Food was top notch! I was impressed, prices were fair. I tried a couple of tacos and has the "Ugly" black bean burrito, it was amazing! I highly recommend Tucos and their Burritos.

Pros: Easy to find, Friendly atmosphere

Cons: Seating was not very comfortable

The Only (Vegan) Place in Town - Edit

I am a vegan who just moved to Sudbury and an onminvore I met said, "I had to eat here because everything is soooo good."
You walk in and it's all very cool; all long tables, metal stools, an indoor take out window, and an awesome patio (hello margaritas in the summer). I they told me it's a converted KFC, which made me laugh... KFC to all vegan. Buritots, nachos, mac and cheese all had great flavour. Huge portions. Wide assortment of hot sauces. Jackfruit pulled pork- I've had better but perhaps the fruit they made it with wasn't the best. I'll be coming back again and again. All items are really high in fat but well worth it to have people around here support vegan resturants. Owner's wife owns Beards across the street, the all vegan bakery. Go get dessert after.

Pros: All Vegan, Large Servings, Atmosphere, Patio,, Good Coffee, Beer/Wine/Mixed Drinks

Cons: Food is Oily

Magnifico! - Edit

I was glad to discover that Sudbury had a vegan restraunt, and that it was a mere 12 minutes from my hotel.The burritos I ordered were huge and massively tasty! Everything else from the Bill Murray painting on the wall, to the Sergio Leone homage decor and menu, to the cheerful wait staff were equally excellent. I left with that rare "clean food taste" in my mouth and stomach. Would definitely return and reccomend!

Pros: Lots of excellent Mexican vegan options, Reasonably priced vegan fare, Comfy and cozy atmosphere

Lovely Finding in the Nickel Capital - Edit

We were not yet vegetarians when we last visited the Nickel City, but it would not be a surprise if there was nothing pure veggie/vegan in the area. I was not even serious when I pulled out HappyCow on our way back to Hamilton from Sault Ste. Marie, but viola, a vegan taco lounge in Sudbury! We had the CHILI VAN CLEEF, the EL TARANTINO PHISH TACO, the THE GOOD MAC 'N CHEESE BURRITO, and KALE CESAR CHAVEZ SALAD - the boys would want to try more items if they were not totally stuffed! The down side was that we could hardly keep ourselves awake while on the highway after the dinner :-) ... They are open till 9 pm on Sundays, at least while we were there in late Sept. - posting a pic of their hours.

Amazing vegan food - Edit

This place is amazing! The food is delicious, the stuff are all down to earth, and the place radiates with positive vibes and a chillax ambiance. Their patio is also incredibly beautiful. My favourite restaurant, I always find myself going back and always leaving satisfied.

Incredible Food and Incredible Place - Edit

Traveling across Ontario and stopped in. I left wishing they moved to my home town. Incredible tacos, great atmosphere (wish I spent the night in Sudbury as I would love to visit it as a late night bar). Really friendly waitstaff who offered advice and were attentive. Only thing I wish was they let you mix and match tacos or offered a sample plate.

Pros: Great tacos, Friendly staff, Cool layout

Cons: No mixing of tacos on a plate, too far from NYC

rude waitress - Edit

My wife and I, accompanied by our niece attended the Tucos Tacos Lounge hoping to have a good meal. Well, we didn't even get to order as the waitress was simply rude, leaving us no choice but to leave.
I can't remember if I ever left a restaurant because of a rude waitress, but had no problem leaving today.

Cons: rude waitress, poor seating

I had to pinch myself - Edit

I'm thrilled that a restaurant of this caliber, especially a 100% vegan restaurant, is now a reality in Sudbury.

I grew up in Sudbury and although I haven't lived there in just under a decade I do go back to visit. A friend brought me here (thank you Jessica!) over the holidays and I was more than impressed.

To echo the other reviewers: the atmosphere is indeed pretty special. Care was taken with the decor inside and out and it just felt right. The service was not 100% solid that night but it was fairly busy and the staff were very upfront that they were still figuring things out, having only been open a couple weeks when I visited.

Expect cafe-style ordering, delicious tacos (that's all we tried), and a nice beer selection as well!

I would highly recommend bringing a friend (or a large appetite) and trying all the tacos, but if I had to pick only a couple I'd recommend the jackfruit and "phish" tacos (1 and 4 as of this writing). Of course that's only a suggestion, there's much more than tacos on the menu and I would love to go for breakfast/brunch to try some of those dishes. I suspect (and hope) that the taco selection and menu in general will evolve over time.

I was happy to see the place was busy on a Tuesday evening and I only hope that continues because I won't be around much to patronize Tucos. This place doesn't scream "vegan!" and I think that was a smart decision. It's great food period, and hopefully flying under the radar a bit encourages omnivores to try them out despite what they may perceive as a lack of meat or dairy.

To cut this novel short, I know I plan to visit Tucos whenever I'm in Sudbury, and I'm excited to try more of the menu! I can foresee an amazing patio popping up here in the summertime.

PS. If you're into records (vinyl) at all, check out Cosmic Dave's Vinyl Emporium across the street, it's a great place and the owner also co-owns Tucos!

Pros: great casual atmosphere, variety, friendly staff

Exactly what Sudbury has been missing - Edit

Finally a resto a Torontonian vegan can bring her family to when she goes home for the holidays! Tacos and burritos were excellent! Great flavours, good menu selection, and all freshly made in house. Atmosphere is very casual. I will definitely be back for more every time I visit!
