Must Stop Taco Shop

Best tacos in Baja with all the fixin's. Almost always busy, for good reason and sometimes slow as there are a few employees, but worth the wait! A must stop every time we're in town.

When not in Los Barriles I really miss having breakfast or lunch at El Viejo. The price is right and the food is simple and good. What you would expect in Mexico.

This is the place we like to go for tacos. This last time they were a little overwhelmed by the customers (it was packed) but generally they handle it well. But, as anywhere in Mexico, you must be patient. After all, you're on vacation. What's your hurry? Ease up Gringo. If you can get in that mode, then you'll be... More

we had scallop, shrimp, fish and beef tacos - $2.00 each - add a couple ice cold beers and lunch for 2 for $12 - their taco bar lets you put whatever you want on the tacos. Someone at a neighboring table had fish and chips that looked yummy - they close at like 3 so don't plan dinner there

Good food and good service. Tacos a specialty withe lots of condiments. Lunch and breakfast. Flies in the far back a bit annoying but its Mexico.

If you're looking for a lunch spot and enjoy tacos this is the place, it gets busy over lunch but it worth it.

Love this place! You order your tacos and they have an extensive salsa bar with all kinds of goodies to pile on to your taco. A locals fave and a true bang for your buck. There's a reason it is always packed.

Fish Tacos are fantastic and so is the rest of the menu - sandwiches, burgers, and other standard Mexico food such as quesadillas etc. We ate here a few times during our one week stay in Los Barriles. If you're looking for a small, local and cheap in price restaurant I would recommend to add this to your list.
