This place looks pretty small from the outside but the inside is pretty spacious! You order at the counter, menu is pretty decent size, lots of options to choose from definitely could customize anything on the menu. I went ahead and tried the Tortas club w/ steak w/o beans, really good they had sauces on the side that you can add on. I like the spicy sauces, they tasted the best in my opinion. The chips comes with the meal and it was seasoned differently from most chips and it was good which is a plus, but these were really hard to chew and honestly not pleasant to eat. My sister had the same thing I did but got the combo meat for her tortas and a single taco. She ate everything! She was pretty happy with her meal. Price is decent, great place to go for lunch.

This place has great food! The el-pastor tacos are really good. I stop here every time I'm in the area. Highly recommend!
Good food. Adrian's burrito is my go to, can't miss with bacon wrapped.
I noticed this small taqueria located between Crew Carwash and a gas station after going through the carwash. I decided to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised by the menu and the quality of the food. You place your order at the counter and then it is delivered to your table. Fast and friendly service. A salsa bar is located next to the soda machine.I ordered a vegetarian burrito and chips. I always love a good salsa bar, and this one offered several varieties of salsa, some picked jalapeños and jalapeño ranch. I sampled them all, and I especially liked the hot sauce and jalapeño ranch. The burrito was grilled, and served cut in half on a red-checked liner. The vegetables, rice and beans were flavorful and tasty. This is a convenient location for anyone who wants to grab a quick meal after going through Crew Carwash, or shopping at Hamilton Town Center. A nice find, and I am sure I will be back soon to try some other menu items. More...
Beat tacos place in Indiana!
Great menu and friendly staff. A little small but the food is good. You have to try Adrianns Burrito
Absolutely delicious, freshly-prepared food, and lots of it! Best Mexican food I've had outside of my home state of Colorado.
Just went to Samano's for the first time and it's awesome. I highly recommend this place!
The burritos are dynamite!
Food is cooked to order and served hot and fresh which was very good during our 2nd visit but not our last
Love this place! Best place I've found since back from Cali. Cant get enough.

La gringa es muy buena
Great Food!!!! These guys are serious about their food!
My favorite taco place. They are fast and take phone orders. Reminds me of authentic Mexican tacos when I eat there. The cashiers are little dry and can work on their smile, but the food is very good.
First time here. My friend describes it as authentic Mexican. I had the tacos ($2.99 each). They come on double soft shells, not a hard shell. They were smaller diameter than I expected but were piled high with chicken (also have steak) and onions (can get cilantro too). No cheese, guacamole, lettuce or other stuff. They were very good. Other things I saw looked good too. There is a salsa bar with about 8 flavors. All you can drink soda fountain (Coke products). Try it for something different...... More...
Great food everytime. Sometimes a wait when it gets busy, but still good authentic food.
Best Mex. Food
Very nice hidden gem tuck away behind some other restaurants the food is made to order so calling ahead is strongly recommended
Food was excellent! Owners were very kind! Portions were large! We will definitely be go back!
Fresh and yummy
The food was great here! I had two pastor tacos and they were juicy and delicious! Their salsa bar was good but would have liked more information about some of their choices. My husband ordered the steak gringos and received the other choice instead. The counter person came out and apologized and said the correct order would be coming out but to keep the incorrect order also. He said they would like to know how he liked both orders. The Gringo was very good also. We didn't try dessert but the cakes in the case looked really good. Even though we live on the south side of Indianapolis, we'll return for this yummy meal! More...
My favorite taco place in Indy- I eat here 3 or 4 times a month. They always load the tacos up with meat, and Adrian's nachos are another favorite of mine. As someone who grew up in CA, it was really tough finding good Mexican food around here and everywhere else I've been (by recommendation from friends!) is just so blah. The only downside is I don't like any of their salsas. Everything else is amazing More...
Samano's is family owned and you can tell. the food is incredible and authentic, and the service and employees are just as great. always an amazing meal.
great food, better people
You need to get a bacon-wrapped burrito and know Samanos gift to Mexican food!!!
Dare I say this place has the best tacos on the north side? Very authentic feel and no need for a bunch of ingredients. They definitely don't whimp out on the meat and the onions and cilantro don't overpower what so ever. It is a perfect combination of ingredients. I had the al pastor which tasted like I was back in Mexico, and steak which was also AMAZING. I ordered via phone and my order was done within 10 minutes. I will be spending a lot of money here in the future as it is relatively close and tacos are my favorite. If you're in the area, or even if you're not and looking for an awesome taco spot, be sure to check this place out! More...
Their bacon-wrapped (Adrian's) is a delicious creation that needs catch on to other places. The staff are friendly and attentive. They had to power through working without any A/C on a scorching day and kept an outwardly positive attitude. The girl working the counter was especially helpful. If I lived closer, I would go there weekly! More...
Amazing authentic Mexican food. I love the pastor tacos!
I go to the new one located in Fishers, and the tacos are AMAZING. I go here 3-4 times a week because its so good and the price can't be beat.
Amazing food. I got a chicken taco and a dteak burrito. Chicken taco seemed expensive for its size but was loaded with chicken. Seasoned and cooked perfect. The steak burrito was perfect. Perfect ratio of everything and steak was cooked perfect even though it was med well. Excellent place must try. More...
So delicious! We got the Adrian's special and a mexican burrito. The flavored water is so good! They have horchata water and other flavors.
Killer just killer...
Some of the best and authentic Mexican food I’ve had.
Love this place!!!
Tacos are amazing!!!
The adrian burrito is amazing. I love being able to choose from 12 or more sauces. Just always a great food place!!!
Authentic Mexican cuisine at an affordable price
Great food!! Very authentic Mexican food! Will go back!
The service is above standard. Christopher Samano, the father of the owner, is all about customer service. I thought the tacos were a little small and I'm not a fan of a corn tortilla. I think this is a terrific lunch spot. More...
So glad we opted to try something different. Everything we ordered was fantastic. And the chips were fried fresh upon ordering. Husband had Adrian's bacon wrapped burrito. Was enormous. I ordered the Adrian's nachos. Delicious! Son ordered the hawaiiano alhambres. Fantastic! Salsa bar had 8 or so to choose from. Will definitely return. More...
Ate lunch at this location last week. Ordered the Hawaiians Gringas. Loved it, especially with the sauces you can add from the sauce bar. The pineapple flavor in this dish is great More...
We tried this with another couple after a session at TopGolf and loved it. I had the steak Chimichanga and it was great. Very flavorful but lightly fried, it delicious and huge. My wife and our female friend each had two tacos (pork and pork, pork and chicken) and both said they'd order them again. Our male friend enjoyed his taco salad (with beef). We ordered chips and queso, found the chips to be light and fresh, the queso was great. We'll order it again. We were surprised when the waitress delivered a bowl of tortilla chips and pointed us in the direction of a salsa bar; didn't know they were included. Conclusion: tasty and high quality ingredients, and very reasonable costs. Try it! More...
Legit authentic Mexican restaurant.Great food, great service. It's a MUST!
Excellent authentic Mexican food! Loved it!
Had the al pastor tacos and they were awesome. Definitely authentic and reasonably priced. Only downside is the ac was out cant fault the to much for that. Would definitely go again.
The bacon wrapped burrito is awesome
Food was fantastic.
Highest quality Mexican food in Noblesville. Just go there for the sauces if nothing else.
Seriously the best Mexican I've had around Indy!!!! The elote(Mexican corn) is so delicious everyone must try it, and the burritos are amazing, I love the salsa bar and the chips they give you are hot and seasoned deliciously. Their service is awesome and they always bring the food out hot and fresh. The vegetarian burrito is amazing and so is the bacon wrapped burrito!!!! We usually split a burrito and get elotes and chips and salsa and it is the perfect meal. Thank you Samanos for such a great experience every time More...
Slot King Dream
Friendly staff! Brought us a free dessert because it was our first time there. Will be back! Great tacos.
So typically good taqueria is a hole in the wall not in a suburb mall area. Pulling up and seeing this is a new building connected to a Shell gas station and liquor store in front of a large outdoor mall made me almost turn around. Sure am glad I didn't! Place is very clean and staff very friendly. I had the steak/cherezo toco and two Pastor tocos, they were fantastic! The quality of the meet was outstanding, absolutely no gristle/fat or dried out pieces. Very flavorful good quality cooked to order. They have a self serve bar for salsa etc with several choices. They have another location that I have not tried but I can tell you this location has great food and I will be back when I'm here n the area! More...
This place ROCKS!! Please support this place!!
Limited selection. Tasty food but it could use some type of sauce.
Amazing food. Little gem tucked away in an unusual place.
S. K. Bigler
Seasoned steak taco is awesome
NOM NOM NOM, YUM YUM YUM! Seriously good, comparable to La Bamba in my opinion. You can get your burritos bacon wrapped too; for total calories!
We stopped by Samano's for a quick lunch one afternoon and we were pleasantly surprised with the food! From the outside, Samano's looks unassuming, as it's connected to a gas station, but as soon as you step inside, you get all the good smells and sounds of a yummy taco shop. I had the tacos al pastor and they were good! I will say that I needed sauce to put on them since I didn't find the meat very juicy, but the taste was there! I appreciated the generous pieces of pineapple, as I often find that other places might only give you a few little pieces and mostly meat, onion, and cilantro. I was with someone who had the bacon wrapped burrito, and he really enjoyed it. Again, he found it a bit dry, but that was quickly taken care of with the addition of one of the many sauces they offer on their sauce bar. Overall, this is a good place to stop for a quick, inexpensive, and yummy meal if you're in the area. More...
Went for lunch today to try it out. Not bad at all grilled chicken taco was good. Had the Adrian Nachos which were good but I think they need cheese maybe just shredded cheese and definitely drain the lettuce before putting on chips it stated it had cheese and beans but there wasn't any on mine. Kind of a bummer but the meat on them was good. So soggy chips from the water off the lettuce and no beans or cheese. They were busy but the dining room was a mess I saw one family clean up another persons messy table to have a place to sit. Might try other location next time to see if there is s difference in food and cleanliness of dining room. But it was still good. More...
I love this Taqueria! Discovered them about 2 years ago and always get the Horchata and Tacos al Pastor. My sister surprised me with a party for my 40th birthday this year and had them cater it. There was literally so much food for the number of people she ordered for that we're still eating it 5 days later! I love their tacos, I love their guac, and did I mention that fabulous horchata? :) This will forever be my go-to taco joint! More...
Small place with counter service.I ordered a taco & it was excellent. My friend ordered a burrito,it had great flavor but lacked enough meat. there seemed 2b a lot more shredded lettuce then anything else.Drinks were good & cold.Location is next 2 gas station! Not a-date night place at all!Recommend a quick bite,Lunch or take away. More...
I can appreciate that Samano's vegetarian burrito wasn't just a pile of black beans. Rather, they stuff tomato, red onion, mushroom, spinach, peppers, cheese, rice, and pinto beans into a flour tortilla and press it like a crunch wrap supreme. Accompany each bite with one of Samano's salsas from the salsa bar, and you've got yourself a nicely-portioned vegetarian burrito.Side note: I'm looking at everyone's photos and wondering, "HEY, WHERE WERE MY CHIPS?" My burrito was the only thing on the plate, so if you're hankering for something else, you'll have to order it separately. More...
Wow! This place is amazing! It has to be the closest to authentic Mexican food I've had. I got the Mexican burrito with chicken and it was great! They have a nice salsa bar with a variety of options to add to your meal. We also ordered the Choriqueso and it was delish. The appetizer along with half the burrito was all I could eat. I will be back and I would encourage others to go there! Nice variety of options. More...
First visit after checking reviews here on Yelp, and I have to say that they were spot on with their reviews. This taqueria is very authentic and the tacos de al pastor were delicious and not dry. We so happened visited on a day where the owners were present and their hospitality and service were top notch. I definitely will recommend to friends and family. More...
Pastor tacos. Best thing to get. I tried the bacon wrapped burrito and was underwhelmed. I expected more but the bacon tasted burnt. They have the best salsa bar in the area. Great lunch spot. More...
It's decent Mexican food not to bad If you want your taco or burrito fix nice salsa bar and nachos I just wish it wasn't texmex and more original Mexican. And wish they had more options of dishes. More...
About as authentic as it comes around here. The Adrian burrito is awesome and my wife loves their tacos. We also like the variety of sauces you can get from spicy to mild and all kinds of flavors. We have also been rewarded with a slice or two of their cakes sometimes for no reason other than we were first timers or a minor mistake was made and the owner wanted to make it right. Top notch. More...
This was the best Mexican food I've had since I've moved to Noblesville almost 7 months ago. The tacos are authentic and chimichanga is big enough for 2. We will definitely be back here!!!!!!! More...
Initially was hesitant to try but so glad that we did! The food we had was great and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We tried a pork, a chicken, and a chorizo taco...the pork and chicken were my favorites but the chorizo was good as well. Plan to try the steak one next time we go. We also got the corn on the cob (don’t remember the name) and chocolate flan for desert. Everything was delicious. Highly recommended and worth checking out for anyone who’s a fan of authentic Mexican food! More...
First timers and definitely not our last! So good and very authentic. Don't let it fool you being part of a gas station. They just opened their 2nd location in Fishers. It's THAT good. More...
Ok, I love tacos. Most cases I have found some of the best taco joints in the weirdest places. For example, Samano's Taqueria is in a Shell Gas station adjacent to one of the busiest Chick Fil A restaurant in the area. On a whim, I decided to give them a shot. OMG was I pleasantly surprised by the flavors of not only the tacos but the salsas also. The Pastor taco was beautifully seasoned with hot corn tortillas and all the fixings. The steak tacos were tender and very moist. All the salsas at the salsa bar were fresh and flavorful. I totally recommend this taco joint. More...
My ONLY complaint is that more and more people are learning that these are the best tacos in town causing me to wait longer salivating for mine.
I love Samanos! As far as authentic Mexican food, they do a really good job. Samanos would come in as my second favorite place to grab quick street style Mexican food. Its doesnt come in first because I dont really like the salsas they offer and the menu is limited of things I like such as shrimp ceviche. Their tres leche cake is my favorite. So flavorful and moist. The owner is great. We had our order messed up one time and he went above and beyond to make it right. They had just missed putting an item in the bag so not a super big deal but he was very helpful. He made it fresh, gave us a bigger portion, and made it free. None of which I asked him to do. It shows he cares about making things right! We look forward to trying the new sit down location in Fishers soon. More...
My First Time Trying Tacos In Indiana & This So Happened To Be The Place I Chose To Try Out & Let Me Tell Y'all ... Their AL PASTOR TACOS Are So Delicious. I Didn't Know That It Had Pineapples In Them Till That Sweet Juicy Flavor Devoured My Mouth & I Gotta Say, I LOVE IT! Definitely Worth My $4 Lol More...
Honestly, this was some of the best Mexican food I've had in a long time. It's hidden right next to a gas station, so I never gave it a second look until I heard from some colleagues about how good it was. I walked in on a taco Tuesday (hello deals!) and there was only a few other people in the restaurant. Tacos were on sale for only $2 a piece, so naturally a got a few to try - the grilled chicken and the steak. Additionally I got the elote (corn) and chips/guac. They pride themselves in serving fresh food and boy is that true. Let's start off with the elote. Holy wow. You know the corn is gonna be good when it's covered in cheese and still on the Cobb. Elote is corn smothered with butter, mayo, and cojita cheese along with some spices and lemon or lime juice. This was probably some of the best elote I've had in the area. It was perfectly cooked and nice and creamy. The chips were freshly cooked right before handed to me. Nice and crispy, they also had a nice blend of spices to give the chips some extra flavor. The guac was also very fresh. As for the tacos.... I gotta tell you.... the steak taco is unreal. Instead of strips or square chunks of steak it's almost crumbled or minced steak. They had so much flavor for only having a few ingredients in the tacos! The tacos are served on a corn tortilla and are served with meat, onions, and fresh cilantro. It's a breath of fresh air to get tacos that aren't smothered in sauces. You can actually taste the meat and get amazing flavor throughout the taco. The chicken taco was also pretty good, but the steak taco has me blown away. I'll absolutely be coming back. I heard a new one opened up in fishers so go to either one and you won't be disappointed! More...
A hidden gem. Do not be deterred. Although located adjacent to a gas station, it doesn’t get much better than this. Tacos pastor and chorizo are my staples. Very nice staff, too!
Great food, great service . We will be back for sure . Services are big and filling. Great corn and love the salsa bar.
I had the pastor & steak tacos, and a side of elote! The food came out quickly, was excellent, and I loved the little salsa bar. Yummy tacos and delicious corn tortillas! More...
This is some of the best authentic Mexican food around! Love their Pastor Tacos and their burritos are on another level! The service is quick and the salsa bar is a nice touch. More...
I kept hearing about this place, finally got to try it today. Family friendly! Great food, very fresh! CLEAN establishment. Wasn't sure what to expect since it's attached to a gas station, pleasantly surprised! I went outside my comfort zone and tried the steak torta- very tasty! Our toddler demolished the chips and queso! (INCREDIBLY PICKY CHILD, we were blown away by how well he ate. His kids ground beef taco, rice and beans were super good too. My husband had a fancy bacon wrapped burrito. Friendly staff, good pricing, huge portions, self service. We will def go back! More...
Amazing, real street tacos! I love the tacos so much the only other thing I've had is their chips & guacamole. And the staff is always incredibly nice!
Great food! We had three in our party and we all were happy with our food choices. The staff was very attentive to our needs. This is a great spot to eat. We will be back More...
Nice little restaurant. Straight to the point. I got the burrito with chicken. Happy it came with chips. Lots of variety and options on the menu. Prices aren’t bad. Food was fast. The sauce bar was a nice touch. Only downside was the rice tasted a little too salty. Otherwise, this is going to be my new spot for lunch. More...
Best and most authentic Mexican food in Indianapolis. Great service and atmosphere. Salsa bar is fantastic.
This is now up there on one of my top two favorite places to get tacos on the Northside. I wish I had known about it long before. Awesome chips and pick, several salsas to choose from for toppings and amazing tacos! More...
Wow!!! I kept reading about how good Samano's is but hadn't ventured out to try it yet until today! I quickly realized this is the type of Mexican Taqueria that is worth driving out of your way to eat! I ordered the Chicken Chimichanga, which took a little bit to make (maybe 10 minutes), but it was well worth the wait. While I waited, I chose 3 of their homemade salsas from their salsa bar to eat with my freshly made chips. I tried the Ancho Chile Salsa, Habanero Onion Salsa, and the Jalapeño Ranch; all were very good but not incredible. When the Chimichanga arrived I was blown away by its size and presentation. Deliciously seasoned chicken was wrapped inside the tortilla along with a rice & white queso mix, fresh Avacado, and pinto beans, all deep fried to a golden perfection! Then it was topped with more creamy queso, fresh Pico de Gallo, Lettuce, and Sour Cream. I'm looking forward to going back to try other things, since they have burritos, tacos, tortas, and other Mexican food staples, along with an ice cream bar to boot! The only problem is that the Chimichanga was one of those dishes that was so incredibly perfect that I'm going to want it every time I go back, so I may never get to try all their other great fare! Muy Bueno!!!! More...
Best authentic Mexican food in town! Great Burritos and tacos! The staff is very nice as well!
Bacon wrapped burrito?! Unique salsa combinations. Truly authentic Mexican flavors. This place is just about as good as it gets. While it can be a bit pricier than other places once you order a variety of options, you won't be sorry. Grab a friend that you're cool sharing with and have yourself a fiesta. You'll love the food! More...
This place is awesome! It is definitely easy to overlook as it is attached to a gas station but don't let the location fool you. They have great food and great people. They are always willing to work with you if you don't want something that's on the menu. Mix and match if you will! Definitely adding this to my list of good eats. More...
Adrian's burrito is amazing
strange James A nasty
Awesome service and great tacos
The food is awesome, and the staff is super friendly!!
You have NOT had Mexican food until you've had this food! Great sized portions. Amazing tacos and perfect burritos. We didn't get to try all the salsas but the ones we did try were heavenly! I may end up getting a small loan to be able to come here every day! Even the picky child we brought tried it and loved it! More...
Good food at a great price with daily specials.
Food and service was excellent, the staff super friendly and the best burritos around town!! Definitely coming back!! Thank you samanos for your great service .
It’s a Mexican restaurant, in the same building as the Shell gas station, and that is never my choice for a nice meal - BUT YOU’RE IN FOR A WONDERFUL SURPRISE! This place rocks some of the very best tacos in Hamilton County. Order your food at the counter, and they will deliver it to your table. Start off with chips & salsa - they have a wide variety of salsas available for you to sample & enjoy. Get a couple of marinated pork tacos - amazing flavor. If I had 2 wishes for this place it would be a nicer location & a liquor license - but don’t let that stop you - it’s great food, at good prices. More...
Unreal! Very highly recommended.Service was great and the food was amazing! Salsa bar was well done! I tried each one and couldn't decide which one I liked best! Their habanero and onions are to die! I live in the western portion of that US - we have Taco Shops all over and this place is seriously on the top of the taco shop list wish we had one in Vegas! The only suggestion I have is maybe a bit more seasoning on the carne asada. Otherwise, my meal was perfect! Thanks Guys for a great dinner! More...
We were interested in trying a new spot in Fishers/Noblesville and so glad we did! The most authentic Mexican I've had, as a good as NADA downtown, and fantastic prices. All food is prepared fresh daily and extremely tasty. This place makes Chuys extremely bland. If you like Mexican you MUST give this place a try. Adrian is the owner and talked with us, very friendly. More...
Awesome tacos and quesadillas at a low price. Huge plus their selection of salsas and fresh cooked corn chips. A most stop during lunch when near by.
Tacos are delicious! I love the chorizo and they have a little sauce bar where you can grab toppings for your tacos too. I usually order to go but there is also a little during area to eat inside the restaurant. The elote is also delicious. Oddly enough even though I enjoy the chorizo taco it didn't translate as well in the chroriqueso. The queso itself was delicious. The guac is good too and made in house! More...
Wow that Adrian...
So so so good! My husband got the bacon burrito and I got chicken tacos. Both were delicious! Service was great! We will be back!
Best Mexican in the area. Don't let the gas station attached appearance fool you!
Great food, friendly service. Authentic Mexican.
Best Tacos in Indy!!
Great food and great service. They treat you like family and the prices are not high at all. Highly recommend!
Big portions at reasonable prices in an unassuming location. Wide selection of homemade & self-serve salsa, guac, and other condiments is a plus. Worth a stop if you're driving on I69! More...
I love this place. It has some great charm from being in the same building as a gas station. It has cool murals of Mexico on the wall that remind me of Mayan or Aztec art. I've been here twice now and it has secured my favorite place for a taco in Indianapolis. Every single taco I've gotten, and I've had the whole taco menu, minus the veggie taco, has been fantastic. It's hard to choose a favorite. Top two has to be Chorizo (they call it Mexican sausage) and Al Pastor. My wife got the Alambre which is more like a fajita dish. She liked it but had order envy of my tacos. I almost forget to mention all the sauces they have. I haven't tried all of them yet and most don't seem as spicy as I had figured. This place is 5 star. More...
This is my second time here, it is the best I've had here in Indiana. This has become my new favorite place to get Mexican food. It reminds my husband and I of being back home. Great service and Great food. More...
Really good tacos, delicious guacamole, lots of tasty sauces. You'd miss it if you didn't know it was here because it is attached to a gas station, but the food is delicioso! Super nice owner, who makes the salsas himself. Everything we had was very good. If I lived closer, I would go there all the time. More...
Our first time here and it exceeded all expectations! Definitely coming back often. The staff is very friendly and the food is fresh and delicious!
I LOVE this place. Tacos are amazing!! We probably eat here twice a week. I definitely recommend this place, super authentic and the food are delicious.
Tacos were delicious and salsa bar had a good selection.
Food was delicious their street tacos were amazing and the price is fair.
Absolutely phenomenal !!! In town for a few days and will definitely go again
Excellent food, friendly staff, love the salsa bar, will definitely be putting this place in my regular rotation
Such good food. Friendly atmosphere. Wish I lived closer and could eat here more often.
Fabulous Authentic Mexican Food, staff is friendly. They even gave me a piece of cake for my Birthday! This will be my new regular Mexican restaurant!
Pretty cool place. Unique menu, I really liked it.
What can I say about this place? I am from Los Angeles which is known as the center of the best Mexican food in California. When I moved to Fishers I yelped every Mexican place within 20 miles from my house in search of authentic food that would remind me of home with I didn't feel like cooking or missed home. I tried several places that fell flat to the homemade taste I was looking for until finally making my way to Samano's.... I love this place! I don't live very close, so it is a little difficult to stop by as often as I'd like.... That is a good thing because I would probably be here several times a week if I could.... I will start off by saying the rice reminds me of my Nana's (grandmother) rice... The most disappointing part about eating at "Mexican" restaurants is the rice they make.... Just ew.... When I tried this rice, it created the warmest and most nostalgic feeling in me and I knew the rest of the food would be great..... The tortas are amazing!!! Love them!!! The tacos are fantastic!!! The tortillas are not your ordinary boring tortillas that fall apart the second you pick the taco up; they are made to taste homemade which adds such a great taste on top of the delish and perfectly cooked meat. I love the carne asada tacos- there is absolutely no gristle or fat on the meat and it is perfectly seasoned.... The salsa bar is pretty damn good too!! All the salsas are authentic as well... In addition to the amazingly authentic food, I have to say the family that owns the restaurant is so warm and inviting as well... They are very hospitable and totally aim to please. The last time my daughter and I went we waited a while because we ordered several items and they offered us a free piece of flan. That was so sweet! This is such a great restaurant! If you are ever in the mood for some authentic and delicious tacos, tortas and tamales (what I get when I go,) take a drive out to Samano's and get your craving completely satisfied!!** Someone mentioned the street corn can use a little help... She did also state it was her preference, but if you want street corn that is true and authentic to the streets of Mexico and Los Angeles, give it a try....** More...
We were a little worried when we saw this place was right next to a gas station, but don't let that scare you off. The tacos were amazing! The desserts were to die for! We found this place while traveling and were so glad we did. We will try to stop here anytime we are traveling in the area! More...
The food here is amazing. The prices for what you get is fantastic. I recommend asking lots of questions about specials and such as well. They sometimes off things not on the menu. The food is hot and fresh. A lot of things come out one at a time, due to being cooked fresh. So be patient. It is absolutely worth it. The salsa bar adds even more choices. More...
Super place for eat any time any day great place
Traveling home from Indy after a very active weekend, we decided to look up Mexican restaurants in Noblesville, In. We found Samano's and decided to pull in and give it a try. Immediately upon entering we were greeted with a smile and a very helpful cashier. He told us all about the menu and was very knowledgeable. We decided to purchase the "White Cheese" which was delicious. The chips were very fresh and warm. My friend and I chose the "Adrian's Burrito" to split. They automatically, split it for us which was very nice. It was a bacon wrapped, flour tortilla filled with rice, avocado, chicken, beans and cheese. So delicious. They also had a buffet of different sauces to choose from to add to your burrito. The cashier, who I'm sure was a family/owner to the restaurant came to check on everyone then the older gentleman came buy and rechecked. The prices were very reasonable for the amount and quality of food received. My friend and I had to get a to-go box to take our burrito half left overs home. So the amount of food is quite big for the price. I definitely would gladly take another detour to eat here. Before leaving, I used the restroom and was impressed how clean it was. I could actually smell the bleach smell which tells me they really take pride in their business. The only thing I would recommend is to add plastic forks because it was hard to eat with a spoon and knife. More...
Excellent food. Very friendly.
Tres Leches dessert is simply the best! Love their authentic Mexican food... quick and simple dishes sort of might find on the roadside.
First time eating at Somanos. Great food and even better service. Definitely our new go to place for tacos.
Really good authentic Mexican food ... It's just when you order make sure order it correctly ..sometimes they would give something that you did not order. Also sometimes could be a little bit long time especially when they are busy More...
Authenticity is spot on, if you want Mexican food you must try this place, you won't be disappointed. Try not to go during rush hours, as it takes time to get it right...
This place is awesome! Burritos are huge like Bamba
Very good food. Would be nice to get some chips or something while you wait for food.
Super friendly service and their nacho fries are amazing!!!
Excellent, authentic Mexican food, the best!
Awesome tacos. Queso amazing. Great service. Several posts on price and I’d say you pay for what you get - authentic locally hand crafted food is worth it.
Amazing food. Fair price. Really impressed.
Really good tacos
A bacon wrapped burrito can't be beat. Service is always great.
Menu was pretty simple but the food was very good.
Their chips and salsa bar are really good.
Mmmm mmmm good!
This place quicky became a favorite of mine. Friendly staff and by far the best tacos in the area.
1st time there... menu was confusing.
Excellent food and wonderful family atmosphere. Can't beat this place if you want good food and you're hungry. Burritos are massive! " They have brought back an honest, down home cooked meal with great service back to reality. Extremely pleased with everything!! More...
Super good food! We will most definitely be coming back!
So unique & different. I order vegetarian burrito they grilled every veggie & love the sauce & it taste delicious
Best al pastor I've had. Best mexican food I've had an the salsa bar is great
Fast fresh and tasteful
Excellent authentic food in a friendly environment!
This place has the best Mexican food in this area. Also, the people are so nice. It's small but has a big food taste
Great food and fantastic service, thus place goes the extra mile to ensure your dining experience is positive. Authentic eats coupled with a dynamic salsa bar let you know that you're in for a treat and a tasty one at that. Isn't that why you're reading this? More...

Looks very authentic. I was served very well, highly recommend.
Very good food. Glad I stopped in to try it out .
Food is awesome!!!
So good. Finally great Mexican food in Indiana!
Just ate the adrian's burrito , totally recommend.
Great authentic Mexican cuisine
Amazing authentic food, fantastic customer service! At one visit, they accidentally forgot to bring our horchatas when it was particularly busy. They immediately brought out our drinks and apologized. Both the cook and owner came out to ask how our meal was after we were done and asked if we needed anything. Then the owner brought us two free servings of flan (a dessert). This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in all of the Indy area. They have a real good thing going! More...
Great food. Fresh and delicious! I had tacos and son had a steak burrito. We both really enjoyed our lunch. The owner was very friendly and the Flan was awesome for dessert as well!
Not a sit down restaurant, but who cares the food was DELICIOUS!!!! The pork tacos even had grilled pineapple in them :) 6 out of 5 stars
This is a great place to get tortas Cubanas. I have been to this restaurant afew time, and the food always taste good. No issues so far.
amazing food & a great salsa selection!
Amazing tacos, friendly staff! 11/10
Wonderful family owned restaurant. grilled pineapple pork tacos are amazing!!
This place is awesome! I always get the steak tacos and have yet to taste anything that I don't like.
Breakfast Burrito was great.
Good authentic Mexican tacos. I really like the queso fundido with Chorizo (Melted cheese with Meat). The owner and his dad are very friendly. We love in Noblesville and enjoy the good tacos here if we don't want to drive into Indianapolis. My son lovea the steak nachos.Los tacos estan delicious. More...
We stopped to get gas at Shell and it was in the same parking lot. Got a chimichanga and it was cute. Very good value and glad we stopped by.
Stopped in today for lunch after spending the day at IKEA. Not only was the food some of the best I have ever ate, but the portions were huge and very economical. I would come here again in a heartbeat and would recommend to everyone. Leaving with a full stomach and taking half home! 10/10. More...
Love this place! Definitely try the Tortas and Horchata! My new favorite Mexican spot in town!
Bacon wrapped burritos. Enough said
We have been to Samano's several times. Never disappointed. Great service, and the food is fantastic. Best food find since I have moved to Indianapolis.
I LOVE this place. After this place opened, I didn't get Mexican food anywhere else. I recommend the Adrian's burrito.. its a BACON WRAPPED BURRITO. Yum! Also, the queso is flame!! I love the condiment bar around the counter, very unique. REAL MEXICAN FOOD here! Shout out to Pepe and Adrian they are the best! You gotta try this place. More...
Authentic Mexican food
Try the bacon burrito! It's amazing! The sauces are just as amazing!
Best tacos I've had and plethora of sauces to choose from. Outstanding service too!
Love this place. Quick and good
I struggled to decide between four and five stars. The food is excellent and authentic. We enjoy the staff and the ability to try multiple different Salsas on our food. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. More...
Excellent and fresh.
Amazing Tacos for an awesome price! Will be visiting again very soon!
The best Mexican food I ever tasted... salsas are fresh spicy & delicious... during a road trip we were tired of the same ol fast food... u won’t regret it
Excellent both in the food, salsa/sauce options and the staff.

This place is amazing !!! Bacon wrapped burrito is to die for.
Bacon wrapped burrito A+++
Good selection of salsas, great food, friendly staff.
Amazing food, great seasoning, very authentic!
The Mexican burrito and tacos were amazing. I love the authenticity and the music! Flan was a perfect ending
Awesome tacos and great service!
Adrian's bacon wrapped burrito keeps me going back
Authentic Mexican food. A hidden gem honestly. Great food and great service. The salsas aren't spicey enough for me but they're still good! Highly recommend torta/taco al pastor. One of my favorite places to eat. More...
Great food. Interesting customer service....
The food was great
The absolute best tacos/food I've had in the Indy area. The freshness and quality of the food is OUTSTANDING!! The elotes is to die for! Pork tacos were deliciously sweet with grilled pineapple. And a bacon wrapped burrito? Yes, please! A must try, don't delay! Can't wait to keep coming back! More...
Food is pretty good
WOW..Very cozy out of the way authentic Mexican food at a reasonable price..customer friendly,very personable people that care about there food. .Oh and you have to try the Bacon Wrapped Burrito.. YUMMY !! :) More...
To start, the chips and a wide variety of sauces to try are the freshest and tastiest I've ever had. I thought I could be happy just having chips. They are good. The bacon wrapped burrito was outstanding.. not even a bit greasy. Very tasty. This was my first time here and will be back. More...
We were in the area to check out countertops. We stopped here for dinner. Not gonna lie I had low expectations when we walked in. Was blown away. The food was delicious. Gas station Mexican food. Yaaaaassssss! More...
Everything here is pretty solid. I love their salsa bar, very authentic flavors. Great street corn, tacos, and nachos. Way better than Chuys across the street and way more authentic.
As good as anything I have had growing up in California. They put small amounts of grilled pineapple cubes in a lot of their dishes. That was new to me, but it turned out to be a delicious and understated element in some great cooking. More...
This place is excellent! Get a torta. The veggies taste fresh, the bread has a nice airy flavor and be sure to get chips and queso. The salsas are very good, but watch out, some are hot.Definitely a place to visit! More...
We stopped in to eat dinner on our way home from our cruise in the Mexican Riviera. The food at Samano's was the best, most authentic Mexican food we've had. It was quick, but everything was made fresh. I had the Alambre (No Que No) and it was amazing. The owner was so friendly and brought us out a couple of pork tacos to sample in addition to our regular meals. He also brought a piece of flan dessert for our family to try. My entire family loved it!! We highly recommend that you try Samano's if you are looking for authentic Mexican food that is reasonably priced. More...
When the corn tortillas are fresh made, you know you are in the right place. Savory authentic Mexican food in Noblesville. I had the chicken tacos and will be coming back for more More...
I loved what I tried on my first visit (pork tacos), but wanted to kick it up. Like, kick it chimichanga style. But then, there was a Mexican torta staring me in the face. What to do?I ordered both knowing how low my refrigerator had gotten on take-out containers containing yummy memories...And what you're looking at is the result of a very tough decision. Turns out, it was the BEST decision; a decision that answers the question, "What's for dinner?" AND "What's for lunch?" for at least the next couple of days! I'm serious. Do you WANT to see my leftovers photo? Because I'll show you. The only thing I HAVE to point out about this delicious feast is that the chimichangas at Samano's are made fresh!! I was shocked when I cut into mine and #found fresh avocado! AND, I almost giggled in surprise when I saw how "wet" with both queso and sour cream mine was. The last chimi I had was almost dry. Not here!Get Lost at Samano's soon! Tell them #getlostindiana sent ya. More...
Hands down the best tacos in the Indy area. Authentic Mexican tacos made to perfection! A once a week visit is a must. After searching far and wide for a taqueria I was lucky enough to come across this gem tucked away near Hamilton town center mall. The sauce bar is filled with anything you could possibly want in terms of heat. The tacos are masterfully filled with the best ingredients and most importantly these tacos do not turn into greasy messes like many of the other taquerias in the area. The service is always exquisite and I am always pleasantly surprised to be remembered by the staff down to the number and type of tacos I want. Make sure to ask if they have either the suadero or the lengua tacos you will not be disappointed!! More...
Bacon wrapped burrito... Tacos Pastor... Mexican Gelato... Mexican Coke... Do I really need to say more? I had all of the above and nibbled on other folks appetizers as well. The queso and chips as well as the guacamole and chips are delicious. Careful with the guac though, there are somewhat unexpected pieces of fresh jalapenos hidden... I found out the hard way and my mouth was on fire... I proceeded with caution from then on. The taco pastor, oh my, the meat and all the fixings, so flavorful. I could have eaten more of that, but I had my eye on that burrito. This Adrian bacon wrapped giant of a burrito is all that it promises to be. I actually had to make 2 meals out of it. No worries, it's just as delicious on day 2. I had the steak option, it's also available in chicken. It is stuffed full of rice, meat, beans and so forth. and then there is the bacon around it. You just can't go wrong with that. The ice cream is a bit expensive, but worth it. Try it and you'll agree. Service was fast and friendly. So why not 5 stars? Well I don't like the set-up, you're basically dining at a gas station (not real fancy) and to top it all off near Deer Creek (yeah, I still call it that), so if you get into the concert crowd, good luck to you. More...
Simple basic menu with authentic options. Small space and attached to gas station but great food. Order and sit down. Also good gelato. Salsa bar. Many Drink options (including horchata, tamarindo). More...

Don't let it's location fool you!!!!!!!!I'm originally from Chicago where serving a taco on a flour tortilla is a sin, so when my tacos showed up with double corn tortillas and cilantro on them and limes on the plate, I knew I'd found my new go to spot! I got a pork(pastor) and a steak taco to which I added cheese. They both were great but next time I'm just going to go for the al pastor with cheese, lime, and their awesome tomatillo salsa! My fiance got a steak burrito that's wrapped in bacon but by the time it came he had filled up on our appetizer of queso and all the salsas from the salsa bar! He got a horchata to drink which was good but he's been spoiled by having a lot of homemade horchata growing up and this may have been a mix, but still worth it. I enjoyed it. They did have a Mexican ice cream cooler and some cakes but we were too full to try any!We will DEFINITELY be back soon! We decided that we'd each get two tacos each and the app of queso and chips. If you are tired of Americanized Mexican food, definitely give these tacos and the salsas a try!!!!Oh I forgot to mention they had elotes!!! I didn't see the sign for that or the tamales til after I ordered so next time we will split a corn and then the next visit split a tamale along with our tacos! I can't wait! I haven't had elotes in any form for probably 15 years at least!!! And while we were there eating a police officer came in to eat. You know cops, paramedics, and basically any city employee knows the great spots to eat! Try it, you won't be disappointed!!!! More...
Stopped in during s road trip and was a little worried because it was next to a gas station but the food was fantastic! I had three shrimp tacos and they were some of the best I ever had. If I lived here in Indiana I would definitely come back. Visit this place, you will not be disappointed! More...
I've eaten here twice, and it's been a knockout both times. Chips/guacamole, burritos, tamales--they're all good, and they're all authentic Mexican. The only thing that I felt like could use some tweaking was the street corn, but that is just personal preference. This is a quick, unique spot in a wasteland of chain restaurants in this area, and I'm grateful for it! More...
My new favorite taco and burrito spot on the north side. Family owned and run, cooking up 40 year old recipes including the monster bacon-wrapped Adrian's Burrito. The elotes are the best I've ever tasted in Indiana. The salsa bar is an awesome touch, as is the ice cream cooler! This will definitely be my go-to spot before EVERY concert at Ruoff! More...
Wow. That was the first thing that came to mind when I took my first bite. Absolutely delicious. The tacos, the bacon wrapped burrito, the elotes, the queso. ... All of it was AMAZING! I really wish I had a picture to share, but the food was so good we devoured it the moment it came to the table. We didn't try the ice cream or cake, but can't wait to come back and try next time! Don't delay, come give this place a try! You will not be disappointed! More...
I saw the reviews of this place and had to try it!!! I love authentic Mexican food mostly for the flavor and the atmosphere. Samanos exceeded all my expections! The chimichanga was HUGE, my boyfriend and I had to split it and still had left overs! What?!!! I know. I know. Please try it, it's a must in my world. Also the guacamole is delicious and they gave you so many chips which are homemade and have the perfect amount of salt on them. So be ready to be amazed. More...
We checked this place out when in town for a concert! It's an unsuspecting little gem, tucked in next to a shell gas station. We had a few things - their el pastor burrito, chorizo queso and chillaques. The el pastor burrito was by far the stand out! The meat was so good - I wish I would have gotten it on some tacos as well. Wouldn't get the chilaquiles again as there was too much sauce, leaving the chips soggy. They had an awesome little salsa bar and the service was great! They checked on us multiple times and even brought a piece of tres leches cake to try (so yummy). I would for sure stop again next time we are in town. More...
Very good food,presented well. Great tamales with 7 or 8 hot sauce choices. Parking is a problem at the moment but the food is very authentic. Loved it
This Mexican restaurant turned out to be better than I expected. It's located next to a gas station so I was doubtful about it. Normally fast food joints next to gas stations have not been that great in my past experience. This place was exceptional. You order your food at the front and they bring your food out to your table. It was served pretty fast. They have many different types of sauces but mostly all spicy. I think even the salsa we ordered with chips had some kicks. Guacamole was pretty good and I thought it was very fresh. Chicken tacos were my least favorite but everything else was awesomely good. Parking is not too bad. However since it's located next to the gas station, there's lot of in and out cars. Be careful when you pull out. Price of food is reasonable but it's not cheap. I don't have to go back again but my husband loved it. He's looking forward to go back again. More...
Not your typical Indiana Mexican restaurant. As a California native, that's a very good thing, too! Counter ordering, table service, super friendly employees. And then menu...man! The flavors are amazing and the food is high quality and unique. Try this place out if you're tired of bland with a side of rice and beans. More...
We finally found Mexico in the USA! Right here in Noblesville, Indiana. We have a daughter in León, Mexico that we visit as often as possible and this food is the REAL DEAL. From the tacos to the bottled drinks to the Mexican ice cream. Don't be worried that it's semi-attached to a gas station. It is a clean and absolutely authentic Mexican taqueria that you don't want to miss. We told him we will be back weekly! More...
This place was super tasty!!! I am thankful that I stopped off there today. I would recommend going here. I ordered the No Qué a No and it was super tasty! ! I actually had someone come up to me and ask what I was eating because it looked and smelled amazing. I suggest ordering dip or queso go go with your chips. More...
I love this place. You won't think to go in here because it's attached to a gas station, but if you don't, you will be missing out. I had a chicken burrito and it was incredible! They grill the burritos and mix their white cheese sauce in the rice- yum!!! They also have an amazing selection of salas. More...
REAL. AUTHENTIC. MEXICAN. TACOS!!!! Finallllllly!!! I found this spot just by typing in Mexican white at work and man was I glad to venture out and find it! Connected to the gas station behind the chick-fil-a, it is the perfect little spot with some delicious Mexican. The first time I got to pastor tacos which were double wrapped and had the most amazing seasoning! They have a salsa bar and my fave flavor was the jalapeño ranch. Not too spicy and perfect for dipping the chips hey give you while you wait. The second time I went I ordered a carne asada taco and it was just as tasty. The owner and the older gentleman are extremely friendly and passionate about the business. I will be back often!! More...
This is the absolute best Mexican restaurant ever! The food is great and the staff like family! They know my order by heart because I order the same meal every week. They also have a salsa bar where you can get a variety of salsas to try with your meal. At first, I was skeptical of the different flavors, but now I sample each one when I visit! If you decide to take me up on my review and try it, get the white queso and chips and the chicken tacos! More...
Great quality and worth every penny. It's like I made it at home and didn't have to!! Don't let the location throw you off.
Don't be put off by the location inside a gas station this is incredible Mexican food. I recommend the tacos!
Some really unique selections here and everything was excellent. I'd call it Mexican with a flair. Cool salsa bar to meet whatever flavor you are looking for. Extremely helpful and kind staff. Restaurant was criminally empty, has plenty of space. We can't wait to go back. Ok, the parking kinda sucks. More...
This place is soooo good! I can't get enough of there steak and chicken tacos! Not to mention the price is extremely friendly. It's attached to a gas station but that doesn't change the quality. The staff is extremely friendly as well. Def a great place for taco Tuesday. I will be back again and again! More...
We tried this place on a whim because we were sick of eating the normal restaurants at the Hamilton Town Center. Let me tell you - best decision ever! I got the chicken burrito which had chicken, rice, fajita peppers and avocado and it was absolutely delicious (screw you chipotle). My husband got the chicken tacos which were amazing also. I'm a desert fanatic so I had to get a slice of the tees leches cake which was OK - it was too soggy (milk) but the food was amazing and we will definitely go here again! Our food was only $23 by the way More...
I read about this restaurant on Yelp and decided to give it a try with my wife, really glad we did. The restaurant is next door to a gas station Mart, so that may scare some visitors away, but the food we had did not dissapoint. We had Adrian's burrito and a burrito Mexicano, both the burritos were huge and had great flavor. (Definitely enough for two lunches and Adrian's burrito is wrapped in bacon!). We also got the white queso which was very tasty. If we are around here again, we will have to explore the menu. More...
Great authentic Mexican food!! Good prices and an incredibly friendly team and owner. I can't wait to go back!! I ordered a bean and rice burrito (vegetarian) and LOVED it. My three year old ordered a quesadilla and it was HUGE and came with rice and beans and my hubby ordered two various tacos! We loved it :) More...
So good. Love this place. Yes, it's in a very odd location. But doesn't change the fact of how great the food is. If your looking for authentic Mexican food. This is it. Look no further.
Good authentic tacos. One of the best taco shops I have found I. Indy but kind of pricy
Simple yet excellent food. We got the street tacos and everything was made fresh to order. Loved that they had vegetarian options and plenty of different types of salsa to choose from. The marinated pork was juicy and super flavorful. Highly recommend this small spot next to Shell gas station. More...
Good local authetic place. Basically a classic hole in the wall: good, cheap (slightly sketch) Mexican food.
One if the easiest 5 star reviews I could write. Just moved to Carmel from San Diego and saw this place here on Yelp and obviously had to come check it out. Amazingly kind service for a take-out styled business. Food was amazing and I will definitely making the 20 min drive often. We went a bit wild for our first time here and are definitely leaving with leftovers. No regrets. More...
Coming from CA, it's pretty difficult finding a good authentic Mexican food place! We're SO happy to have found Samano's!! We wanted to try a little bit of everything, so got quite a bit for only two people. Adrian's nachos, Adrian's Burrito, chicken street tacos, and a breakfast burrito. We were happy with everything we got (although couldn't come close to eating everything! Definitely will be back! More...
Yummy! I really liked how authentic the tacos tasted. The salsa bar was fun! The chips and choriqueso was really good. We shared a tres leches cake and it was pretty good too. Very sweet!
Everything was so amazing there tacos of al pastor are my favorite ! I'm Hispanic and from California and these remind me of home service was great ! Highly recommend! The flan was great ! Love it! More...
Great food!!! Very authentic Mexican food. The tortillas are handmade & fresh. I ordered 3 steak tacos & elote. Everything tasted great.
