Defending Taco Treat

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Famous quote, often attributed to Voltaire (perhaps incorrectly).

Taco Treat in Great Falls, Montana And how does that relate to today’s blog entry? Try this: “I disapprove of what you eat, but will defend to the death your right to eat it.” That’s my attitude towards Taco Treat, the beloved Montana fast-food Tex-Mex joint.
You probably remember that I’ve tried Taco Treat a few times, and found it…disappointing. But I humbly acknowledge the mystical power that Taco Treat has over folks born & raised in my beloved community, and will defend to the death your right to enjoy it!

And wouldja believe over at Facebook there’s a fan club page devoted to Taco Treat? Since I love all things Great Falls & Montana, I had to join. Had to. Here’s the summary of the Taco Treat fan club:

“No matter where you go after leaving Montana, you can never find a place as delicious as Taco Treat and no other sauce will do. You ask your relatives who still live in Montana to send you Taco Treat sauce. When you’re in town, you buy a bunch of it and take it home with you. Come on…you know you want it!”



  1. the sauce is way better than chipotle!!!!! and to the other person that responded about the cheese IT IS NOT KRAFT, IT IS LAND O LAKES CHEESE!!!!! THEN WE GRATE IT OURSELVES

  2. David – if you decide to try it one more time, here’s my recommendation – get a fried flour shell beef, easy on the lettuce with extra tomatoes on the side – it melts in your mouth. MMMMM

  3. We too have our family mail us hot sauce and stock up on it when we are in great falls. Our 1st stop before friends and family is taco treat. We also tell friends that have never been to taco treat to stop there. Never disapointed!
