Pork al Pastor

By far my favorite Mexican food and this is someone who grew up in San Joaquin County eating lots of Mexican food. I always order a variety of the different tacos with the flour tortillas.

Mushroom Taco

Mushroom burrito blew my mind. As a vegetarian, it's hard to find hearty, smoky flavored meat-like texture in whole-food form. I found it here. It will be my new default!

Rajas con Queso

My husband and I agree, this taco is the absolute best thing we've ever eaten. I don't know how they manage to pack so much flavor into one small taco, but it leaves us speechless every time we order them. It's the kind of thing where you have to almost sit there for a minute and close your eyes and just decipher the flavor bomb happening. And keep in mind, everything we've ever ordered here has been flawless, definitely the best restaurant in the entire Roseville area, but there's something about this particular taco that's above and beyond. I bet even Alton Brown couldn't find a single critique on this menu item. Please don't EVER take this off your menu!

The burritos at Nix Taco have everything you want and they're prepared in an unexpected way. I love the crispy grilled cheese, creamy avocado, refried black beans, and meat. Our favorite is the burrito with pollo en mole. Highly recommend!

Just when you have had your fill of delicious tacos you definitely need Churros!!! The dolce de leche sauce with a sprinkle of salt is like an explosion of happiness in your mouth. Order them you won't be disappointed.

Just when you think a meal of the most amazing tacos and salsas can't get any better, it does. These bites of heavenly goodness are the perfect finale to any meal at Nixtaco. They are delivered to the table piping hot and coated with a perfect mixture of cinnamon and caramel in all its glory. Thank you for providing the most delectable dining experience- from start to finish.

Omg. Tacos de chicharron from nixtaco taste like home. Not only the chicharrones are amazing, the frijoles and tortilla are a match made in heaven. I have to say that when feeling nostalgic about my greatgrandma's tortillas con chicharron Nixtaco is there to supply me with a bit of great memories

Pollo en Salsa Verde

The tortillas are so fresh and soft and the chicken is very juicy. Not too much spice but just enough. This taco is amazing and a good one to start with if you are a 1st time customer.

Mushroom Taco

I love that Nixtaco carries vegetarian options. I have tried the avocado, tofu, and potato tacos, and they are all delicious!!! If you're vegetarian, this place has great options. They have a variety of different salsas that you try with your tacos 💜🌮

Pollo en Mole

Nixtaco may very well have the BEST and MOST flavorful Tacos in the history of Planet Earth. Their tacos are SO GOOD. I usually order 4 or more each visit. I'm talking the type of flavor that just turns you into a taco addict ... If you haven't tried Nixtaco yet, you are missing out BIG TIME! Do yourself and your flavor buds a big favor and get to Nixtaco soon! Their Pollo En Salsa Verde, Pollo En Mole, Carne Asada and Barbacoa with Avocado Tacos are all 5 Star Taco-rrific! The flavor of the meat, the sauces and all on top of freshly made blue corn soft tortillas make for True Taco Gems ... I'm a tough critic but NixTaco already has earned a 1st Ballot Taco Hall of Fame selection from this guy! 2 Thumbs Way Up for Nixtaco! Thank you for a true taco and flavor Experience!

Refried Beans

For how sublime all of Nixtaco's dishes are and I should want to order based on my memories of midnight street tacos on a trip to Monterrey, it's the beans I always have to order. The texture is so creamy and light, unlike any refried beans I've had.

Roadkill Quesadilla

At this point I've gotten so many things off the menu but the roadkill quesadilla is a staple to every order. The porky shrimo is amazing, their beans and rice are probably the best I've ever had. The octopus taco is cooked perfectly, which is never easy with octopus. I absolutely love the churros. And for the non-meat eaters of the world, you CANNOT go wrong with the avocado explosion or spicy tofu. Be sure to get extra peanut salsa and you've got yourself a bomb meal.

Nixtaco Combination

BEST. BURRITO. OF. MY. LIFE. I am not one to err toward extremes or exaggerations so this is not to be taken lightly. We just moved up to Northern CA from Los Angeles. Our palates have been sploiled, from Guisados to El Tepeyac to Señor Fish to the dozens of taco trucks around East LA. Our little Angeleno hearts were craving mexican food and we innocently stumbled across Nixtaco. Is it pronounced "nicks taco"? "Neeshtaco?" Don't know & frankly don't care because once we sunk our pearly whites into that burrito, we found our Comida Nirvana. Our happy place. Our drive-an-hour-down-the-hill-every-weekend obsession. The Oaxacan-inspired flavors are unlike any we have tried. Meltey gooey cheesy goodness with the perfect combo of meats and beans and oh my gracious... I had the chicken verde burrito. My husband: the combo burrito. We shared back & forth. The next time we tried tacos: porky shrimp, rajas, pollo mole, chicharron. The flavor is unreal. Smack-you-in-the-face deliciousness topped with cilantro, or their peanut chipotle salsa- I mean- who even came up with that one? God whispered the secret recipe into Chef Nicks ear (is that his name? we're just guessing here) and he skillfully whisked it up and served it with chips and some spicy carrots. Don't miss your chance to find your favorite Mexican food stop. Cuz this is it. You can thank us later. Right now, place your order.

Avocado Explosion

Everyone in our house loves this taco. It's a safe bet for the hungry masses. We do wish there was an option for salsa between the 2 oz and the pint, but we love everything we order from this place. We look forward to when we can eat inside again. But, we applaud Nix for showing care and caution for their employees, customers, and ultimately, the entire community and erring on the side of caution. We will continue to curbside and having backyard picnics with tacos!

Nixtaco Fried Chicken Sandwich

All the food great here but the because this seems like different type of food I had to try it. It's great

Nixtaco Fried Chicken Sandwich

Love this place. Been a regular since the first day. Incredible food and staff. Gave a try to the fried chicken sandwich for the first time and I was blown away by the flavor of the chicken and combination of sauce and onions. My go to is the Roadkill burrito, but this is a solid 1A. Great work Nixtaco team.

Pollo en Salsa Verde

HANDS DOWN, the best food, environment, and employees. I eat at Nixtaco at least 3 times a week, and on a good week I've gone twice in one day. If you're looking for consistent, amazing food and service, this is the place for you.

My husband and I love Nixtaco! Our favorite items include the Pollo Verde burrito, Carne Asada burrito, the Octopus, and Shrimp tacos! Nixtaco is the only other restaurant in the Sacramento/Roseville area that knows how to cook octopus so well. Seriously! Also, their Flan is amazing! Overall, Nixtaco is one the best places around.

Highly recommend. Every item is delicious, great beer selection and friendly service. They quickly adapted to the Covid closures. Take out meals were excellent, priced well, and easy to pick up.
