Good quick bite

Had 2 x Al pastor and 2 x Tinga de pollo. Both were really good. They also have spicy sauces, which were amazing! Would definitely come back to try their other tacos Great place for a quick bite

Simple: Best tacos I've ever had!!! It's was super quick and fresh. I'm bringing my kids and husband here next time. Felt like I was on holidays in Mexico.

Line up, order and take out. Don't forget to pack the sauces while you wait for your order and have a rice milk and cinnamon cold drink! Worth the wait. Yummy. Can't wait to go back.

Handing out a 5/5 on this review is the easiest thing to justify. I'm from Southern California, so having Mexican food is a regular occurance in our home, but I've NEVER tasted anything quite this. We ordered, ate & then ordered some more. Those flavors were so addicting. I tried four of the different tacos. They also have four different... More

Very tasty and well priced. They only serve tacos and quesidillas with a small menu of fillings that they do really well. Busy place but food comes quickly so don't let the line up deter you. You can tell they have a large group of local regulars and that is always an excellent sign.

When I visited La Taqueria in the middle if a Saturday lunch hour it was packed... good sign number one! Good sign number two, I couldn't make up my mind which tacos to order. This was quickly remedied by ordering one of each of the 8 meat tacos they offer, which consisted of 3 different beef (braised tongue, cheek, and... More

Very nice place, small and particular, you need to line up and some time wait to seat but is totally worth it, the tacos are very very good, and the cheese casadillas super good, a nice place for a quick lunch.

This place has delicious food (and white wine sangria!) for very good prices. The menu offers plenty of options for different food concerns, particularly vegetarians. It is located close to transit and has a cozy vibe. Highly recommend.

Fast pace place and to keep it going go directly to the cash register and get the little paper menu and go back when you know what it is your going to have. Very authentic with tongue, cheek and brisket and awesome vegetarian tacos as well and it's a healthier choice of fast food when time can interfere with urban... More
