Taco Time, 104 N Main St, Lyman, WY 82937
What time is it? It’s Taco Time!
While passing through Wyoming and Utah we came across this other Mexican fast food chain restaurant Taco Time. I was hesitant to try it at first, fearing it was just another Taco Bell, but hunger set in on our return trip so we veered off the interstate a few miles into Lyman, WY and tried Taco Time.
First, I want to say that Lyman is a sweet little town. Don’t get to worked up about everyone checking out your vehicle, new people in small towns just draw attention. This particular Taco Time is about 3 miles off the interstate. They seem to really care about cleanliness, service, and quality, not sure if that is standard or just this particular Taco Time, but it was as good as can be expected from this kind of fast food Mexican food chain.
Their philosophy is fresh, real ingredients which puts them above some of the other chains like this one.
I bought a platter to get a sampling of the different foods. It was a lot of food, not very expensive, and looked amazing. The beef is very lean, which I do not personally like. The fat is where the taste is, but it makes it less greasy and healthier I suppose. The chicken is clearly real chunks of chicken. I prefer shredded chicken in my Mexican food, but it is a testament to the real food part of their philosophy. The tots were good and the chips were okay.
Overall it was worth the stop. I think it was really worth picking this one a little off the road and in a small town.
Is it going to be the greatest Mexican food you ever ate, no. Is it going to be the best fast food Mexican food you ever ate, depends on your tastes. I still prefer Taco Johns, but I would try this chain again.
