    Don't know of any taco burgers around here.By me,most mexican places that also sell hamburgers  just call them a hamburger.I haven't tried one at a mexican place yet,though I may one day. I could make one myself  with some taco seasoning and hamburger meat,,,,then go and put it on a bun.
    Never really heard of them before.

      The place you are thinking of is Pancho's Mexican Buffet.There used to be quite a few in San Antonio,but now there is only one on the other side of town. They are however still around. I used to like to go there. The sopapillas(little pillows) are square pieces of dough that are fried,similar to beignets,and good with honey. I liked their chili rellenos,whith the puffy egg batter that was never greasy.The batter covered the whole green chili inside and there was cheese inside of the chili.
      Ahm,,good times.
      Many of the mexican restaurants around here serve burgers. Some even put beans on top.
      Many places also have burritos too. You can purchase the big Mission brand flour tortillas and make your own burritos.May have to try that sometime.

        You can still get a taco burger here in Austin at an old dive bar that has morphed into a sports watching-tv bar. The Posse East on San Jacinto has a loose meat sandwich with salty carne molida garnished with extra melt-based queso and pickled jalapenos.
        If you don't like 2 dozen tvs beaming down on you, you may want to get your sandwich to go.

          I think you're talking about Panchos Mexican Buffet.  El Fenix and El Chico are both sit down establishmentss, with no buffet.
          Pancho's was great in college:  lotsa stomach filling carbs and those Sopapillas were great.  Last time I indulged in a nostalgic trip, the beans and rice were still good; the enchiladas what one might expect from a buffet line, and the  tacos were as described above:  mystery meat in a premade shell.

            Taco Bueno here in the Dallas are used to serve the Taco Burger at all it's locations.  Now we have made modern inquiries and were told some still do, and some don't.  Ours, sadly does not.

              Taco Burgers are alive and well in the Inland Empire: Baker's Drive Thru locations. And they're good, in my humble opinion.
               
              Here's a screen grab:

                  I make Taco, Bell Burgers, etc all the time...all you need is a hamburger bun, ground beef you season with any type of taco seasoning you find in the local grocery store.
                  Cook up the meat, put it on the bun, and add whatever you want on top. Simple, easy, and tasty.

                          Foe some reason I have always had a taste for these. I think it was because when I was a kid growing up in Indy, there was a place called The Little Brown Jug that served them. They were called Mexi-Burgers. Although not PC I'm sure I kind of like the name Sloppy Jose.

                            I used to get them Taco Johns in Bloomington, IN in high school. They went well with the potato oles.
