Papa's Taco Mia To Go! is the fifth To Go! game in the Papa Louie's restaurant management game series. The app was first announced on January 31, 2017 and was officially released on March 21, 2017.


Hey Everyone!

Whew, it’s been almost two long months since our last sneak peek. But have no fear, because our latest preview is here: Papa’s Taco Mia To Go! This app will be coming to iPhones and Android phones. We have been hard at work on this game for awhile, and we are excited to finally start showing it off.

Stay tuned for more Sneak Peeks of Papa’s Taco Mia To Go!


It's a flavor fiesta in this new version of Papa's Taco Mia, with gameplay and controls reimagined for iPhone and iPod Touch!

You'll need to multitask between four areas of the taco shop, with new controls designed to work just right in the palm of your hand. Head to the Order Station to take orders from your zany customers in the lobby. Switch to the Grill Station to cook, flip and cut meats before pouring them into taco shells. Move to the Build Station to add a variety of toppings to your tasty tacos. Jump to the Chip Station to fill a basket with chips, and choose a delicious salsa or dip to complete the meal. Each station is a hands-on experience, where you'll need to drag, swipe, and tap your way through the taco-crafting process.

Keep your customers happy to earn more points and level up. As your level rises, you'll unlock new toppings for the shop, and new customers will start visiting the taqueria! Well-crafted tacos will also earn you tips to spend in the Shop, and Mini-Game Tickets to use in the daily Mini-Game!

  • This game has the same Specials as Papa's Taco Mia HD, but with different Special Prizes.
  • It was announced that starting with this game, all app restaurant-time management games will at least have one new customer.
  • This is the first To Go Gameria (not including Pizzeria To Go!), which doesn't have a switch option in the Build Station.

  • If you have already cut/flipped a meat and you switch that exact pan to another available grill, the cut/flip marker will be in its original color, but it won't affect your score.
  • On January 15, 2019, Flipline Studios announced that their app games will receive updates and bug fixes, with this game being used as the first example. [9]
