It all began back in 1967, when ‘Taco’ Bill Chilcote made his way to Australia from the borderlands of California and Mexico, armed only with ambition and a tortilla machine. The first Taco Bill opened up on the Gold Coast, found runaway success, and the rest, as they say, is history. Now there are dozens of Taco Bill Mexican restaurants dotting Australia’s dining scene, all fixtures in their neighbourhoods, much loved by locals for the exciting Mexican food and drink on offer. The same goes for the Taco Bill in South Melbourne, on Clarendon Street – always popular with friends and families looking for the spice of life, this restaurant is regularly packed to the rafters, so be sure to book!

If you like Mexican this is the place to go. Great food and naturally a couple of cold Margaretias. The Flan de queso was a bit too sweet compared to previous versions. The Service was excellent.
