We at the Taco Rey family start every day with a mantra: Be Great!

We tell our children, we tell ourselves, we tell each other: Be Great!

It’s this push for greatness that has helped us do what we love, in the place we love, and thrive for more than 60 years at Taco Rey.  With this foundation and drive for success, we have just been named “Best Family-Owned Restaurant” and “Best Locally Owned Restaurant” by YOU — our customers, community, and friends!

We are beyond honored to share our new blue ribbons for the Port Arthur News Readers’ BEST OF 2022. This recognition is really special because it is voted on by our community in the Port Arthur area. It’s our sincere passion to cook and serve up Tex-Mex favorites (like our expertly seasoned tacos, one-of-a-kind fideo, savory Carne Guisada, our family-secret salsa, and hand-rolled tortillas), but to be the trusted place for families and friends to gather and be a proud, family, local partner of Southeast Texas? Well, there’s nothing sweeter!

“It’s important for us to serve the community that has supported us so well for over 60 years,” says owner, Johnny Collazo.

“To be recognized as a favorite place to be locally owned, and family-owned is everything. We’re very grateful and inspired to do even more. And Taco Rey’s got more cookin’ that will help us continue to be great and serve the Port Arthur, Nederland, Port Neches areas for years to come. So stay tuned and stay hungry, friends!”
