Papa's Taco Mia! is the third gameria in the Papa Louie series released in 2011. You can choose either Mitch or Maggie as your worker and make tacos for the people of Tacodale.

Description

Mama Mia! It's Papa's Taco Mia!

So what happens when an Italian chef opens a successful Pizzeria and Burgeria? Build the biggest, wackiest Taqueria anyone has ever seen!

After winning a taco eating contest, you're awarded the keys to Papa's Taco Mia! Good luck though, because all your favorite customers are back, and they brought friends. Unlock all sorts of ingredients and upgrade your shop for style and speed. Try to please those picky Closers, and mystify Jojo the food critic with your wild taco making skills!

You can also earn up to 60 Badges while running Papa's Taco Mia, unlocked for a variety of achievements, including using certain toppings, getting high scores in each Station, serving certain customers, and more!

Introduction

One day in Tacodale, Papa Louie opens his new taco shop and hosts a Taco Eating Contest. Mitch/Maggie camps out in front of the shop to be the first contestant. The other competitors are James and Kingsley. The contest starts and the three contestants must eat as many tacos as they can.

In the later afternoon hours, James gets a stomach-ache while eating a taco and gives up. In the evening, as Kingsley tries to eat his next taco, he begins to sweat and surrenders also. This means that Mitch/Maggie wins the contest and the trophy and is unexpectingly given the shop by Papa Louie.

Gameplay

In this game the player makes tacos. You can unlock all the ingredients and upgrade your shop to increase style, speed, and scores. The player must be quick on serving those new, picky Closers (Robby, Akari, Allan, Quinn, Rico, Xandra and Jojo) and show them your wild taco making skills. You can also earn up to 60 Badges while playing the game, unlocked for a variety of achievements including using certain toppings, getting high scores in each station, serving certain customers, as well as many, many more.

Trivia

  • Sometimes, the car that passes the shop at the start of the day is Roy's car. 
  • This is the first game that you need to interact with the food by using an item (spatula and knife) instead of clicking on it.
  • This game has 7 order spaces, 5 are building spaces. 
  • The sign above the apartment behind the shop will advertise Cletus' Scrapyard, The Romano Family Quartet, Quinn, Timm and Associates, Kingsley's Comedy, or Jojo's Blue Ribbon Dining.
  • This game and Papa's Burgeria are the only games that have three stations.
  • This is the first gameria where you would see the word "Perfect!" when you get 100% in all stations.
  • The poster for this restaurant appears in all future games. In Freezeria, you can buy it at the Upgrade Shop, but from Pancakeria onward, it's a prize in one of Foodini's mini-games.
  • In many cases, the start of day animation will show the second customer peeking behind the restaurant.
  • This is the second game, the first being Cactus McCoy, to have the modern Flipline opening sequence and menu layout.
  • All of the previous workers make a cameo in the intro (look at the side of the building, and you'll see Roy, Marty, and Rita).
  • This is the last game where the items purchased as decorations for the store are placed in specific areas and cannot be moved.
  • This is the last game that shows a cash register on the counter when taking orders.
  • On April 1st, 2014 Matt and Tony made an April Fools Day joke that there would be a real Taco Mia restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio at Woodland and E. 55th street.
    • This is the first gameria to be featured in an April Fool's Day joke.
  • On April 15th, 2014, there was a post mortem on the Flipline Blog [2].
  • The tray for the taco is the same one for the Pancakeria.
  • The three regular locals make their first appearances to the restaurant when a new meat is introduced.
  • Meat that is ordered the most is Chicken.
  • Quinn and Robby are the only closers to order Pork.
  • All local closers appear in the shop as the last four closers to serve, as the first three closers to serve have appeared in previous games.
