Best tacos in town!

I like when a restaurant doesn't have an overly complicated menu with a 100 things to choose from! Tres Carnales is simple, you choose a protein and what you want your protein in (taco, quesadilla, burro) and you're done! Their service is quick and efficient. I would alsolutely recommend getting... read more

We visited this restaurant for the first time on May 14/15. There usually is a small line up. However, it is worth the wait. We were very impressed that one of the hostesses reviewed the lined up every few minutes, asked everyone if they were there for the first time, and if you were, then assured you that you would...

There was a constant line up from the time we got to this restaurant until we left. Don't be deterred. The line moved quickly. The food was worth the wait. A helpful waitstaff explained the menu while we were till in line and offered us a beverage while we waited. We had the guacamole and chips to start. It was... More

Anyone that loves authentic Mexican food has been waiting for this restaurant. Very good food. I can't wait to try their sister restaurant Rostizados!

The only place I've had better Mexican food was from a Mexican street vendor. This place is totally authentic in taste. Two minor issues: they don't make their own tortillas like in Mexico. And when we asked for an extra salsa for the tacos there was a charge of a dollar. There wasn't enough sauce for two of us to... More

I am not usually too interested in Mexican food, so I was skeptical at first, but it was so delicious! Will definitely go back.

Excellent fish tacos. Great, well run restaurant. Always seems to be busy. Staff were wonderful which makes such a busy place bearable!

We visit Tres Carnales every time we visit Edmonton, it never fails to provide great service, food, and value. This past visit our first meal was on a Friday and we each had the taco sampler. Six tacos, one of each of their meat flavours; fish, braised chicken, braised pork, al pastore, chorizo, and braised beef. They were all amazing.... More
