I looooove this place!! as an island girl from Guam, it is so hard to find a place in the mainland (east coast) that serves a variety delicious, island style food like the bbq pork spare ribs, chicken kelaguen, red rice, lumpia, just to name a few.
Their chicken kelaguen is the right amount of pika (spicy) & lemony! Their pork ribs aren't the exact same tasting ribs I grew up in Guam but they're def close & still delicious.
It's a family owned business and they're all super lovely and welcoming with their "Hafa Adai" spirit!

Just ordered through an app. The food was delivered timely and everything tastes pretty good. I order out a lot and this is probably going to be a favorite. Wish they had a few more menu items to choose from. It's possible they do, but I use eat street app to place take out orders and some of the options may not be listed. The sock it to me cake is very good, was a little small though. Otherwise five stars.
This business is now closed

First time at Guamanian food, but if this is the baseline, it won't be the last. I had a traditional chicken dish. It was served cold but had a nice spicy heat.

5 stars for being the only Guam/Chamoru restaurant in the area. We drove from nova to visit and wasn't disappointed. The red rice, ribs, and finadene remind me of home. This is a good enough reason for me to come back when I'm in the area.
I wish there were more Chamoru dishes but I'll take what I can get. Hopefully they do well and expand their selection. Great and friendly family.

I was shocked that this place didn't have a yelp profile already. It's incredible! My husband and I stumbled on it while on a road trip. We weren't even hungry but we thought it'd be interesting to try out some Guamanian food since we never had before. This was one of the best decisions we made on our trip! We had the beef with sauteed onions and the rice... both were phenomenal! The mac and cheese was something we didn't equate with Guam but Ta Fanocho's is the best.
Everything we had was so tasty - I sincerely hope we come back to Richmond just so we can come here again!

I have never before tried Guamanian Food so I got the Pork Rib Tips with Red Rice. This defied all expectations. Free delivery, inexpensive and it was delicious. The pork was very tender and moist. The rice was very tasty. I am definitely going to be a repeat customer.

Was really looking forward to trying Guamanian food. I ordered through Eat24 almost an hour before close on a Friday night. I was then contacted by Eat24 personnel after about 20 min to be informed that the restaurant had closed early tonight. Had to make other plans for supper. Disappointed!!

Glad to find this interesting addition to our lunch list! The food was delicious, the portions were generous, and it was just the right amount of spicy. The lady behind the counter was very welcoming and excited to have us try out her place for the first time.

Warm welcome there. The bistek, chicken estufao, fried rice, red rice, and mac n cheese were VERY GOOD. The chicken kelaguen - YUMMY. Add some finadene to give your food a delicious kick - it's perfect! Will definitely try some dessert when we go back!

Richmonders you have got to try this cool place. Guamanian food? Yes, the island of Guam has its own unique cuisine which my husband and I came to love when we were stationed there for a military tour of duty. Ta Fanocho took us back in time in the best way, their food was traditional and delicious. It is located in an unassuming mall location and there are only a few tables inside, the food is all packaged to go so most convenient for takeout. The owner is awesome, super friendly and customer service oriented. Our favorite menu item was the distinctive Guam speciality Chicken Kelaguen, finely diced chicken mixed with fresh coconut and lemon juice. (Make sure you get it with white rice and finadene sauce!) We also tried the bistek and most of the side dishes--all yummy. They also prepare food for special events--parties, etc. If you love trying different cuisines, don't miss this one, it is a treat!
