In this sequel to "Papa's Pizzeria" and "Papa's Burgeria", you'll need to take orders, cook a variety of meats, and build the perfect taco for your waiting customers.

Papa's Taco Mia! features dozens of toppings, sauces, meats, and taco shells that unlock as you play, and a steady stream of new and returning customers with their own taco tastes. The time-management and hands-on gameplay of the series is back, with brand-new cooking and taco-building challenges. In a new twist to the series, challenging "Closer" customers will visit at the end of each day, demanding only the best-constructed tacos. The new Food Critic will also visit once a week, and if you can satisfy his ever-changing tastes, you'll earn a Blue Ribbon for even higher tips!

"Papa's Taco Mia!" also features weekly paychecks with raises, customers who place orders faster as they earn awards, and a brand-new achievement system with 60 in-game Badges to earn while playing. Shop Upgrades also make a return, with a variety of new decorations and items to help improve your score.

Almost as Fun as Killing a Chicken

Having played this game to Day 48, the only thing I find annoying is the amount of time it takes to jot down a customer's order and the grade and tips when you finally serve it. Maybe it's helpful for people who need to look at the ingredients, but when you just want to do things fast, it slows things down too much. When the timer is ringing while I wait for them to finish their evaluations, it annoys me so much that I have to mute the game to not hear the incessant racket. Other than that, it's fun to cook and build tacos without the stress and pressures of dealing with real customers.

Fun but frustrating how long meat takes to cook. Would have kept playing if there was a burner upgrade.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Fun and addicting.

Considering the mundane subject matter, this is a shockingly addictive game. Easy and fun to play. Who knew about the simple pleasures of building a taco? A fun way to kill time between rounds is to stack as many ingredients on a slab of raw meat as possible. At least, that's what I do. (Throwing away uncooked meat is a completely wasteful, also amusing side-mission.)

When's the Cactus McCoy sequel coming out?

Interesting but flawed

Like the game but sauce needs to be fixed.

It's very hard to stop "saucing" a taco. More than often I put the sauce on and the game decides that I want to put the sauce way left or right of the taco. Actually I wanted to put the damn thing down but the hot spot to put down is so damn small. Really fun if you try to impress the food critic.

Pizzas, Burgers, Tacos oh my!

Nice addition to the "Papa's" games! The preparation ratings is futile, since tacos aren't supposed to be made perfectly. Unfortunately after playing this game, you're sure to be hungry for some tacos.
