Best Burrito I ever had!

It was my first time eating there, but for sure not the last. It was really coolly decorated was all these cultural art pieces, and with flags as well. I ordered a beef burrito, and it was amazing, everything about it! And the complementary sauces go great with it. Nicely Done Chefs!

Hadn't been in a while and wow so glad I went back. Totally one of those mom and pop shops with great food. Staff always friendly too just an added bonus. Only downside is the guacamole is pretty expensive +$7 before tax. Ouch. Try the pulled pork soft tacos. Yummmmm.

When we moved from Toronto, El Asador was one of the places I was heart broken to leave behind. If aliens landed and demanded the best Mexican food I could produce, I would take them to this cozy, quaint little place. It's not fine dining, you'll be cramped inside, and likely too hot sitting on the brightly colored picnic benches,... More

The servers are friendly and the food is inexpensive. They have a lot of vegetarian options. Order at the front and then find a seat. I had a vegetarian taco & an avocado tostada and shared the fried plantain for dessert. The food was delicous, and this was a filling meal for under $10. The place is tiny - with... More

Known as one of the cheap eateries in Toronto, it lived up to its name. Not only that, the burritos were delicious, served with a bowl of hot sauce and a bowl of chopped onion, hot peppers and cilantro that you can add to the burrito if you wish. Easily a fun go-to place with nice help, it's small, a... More

I'm a taco fanatic and in addition to living in Mexico for a little while, I have also sampled the offerings at many taco joints in the city and none have been as authentic and as tasty as this little hole in the wall. Sure the place is tiny and often it's tough to get a seat but boy is... More

You've found it. Now go and sit at a table - claim your spot in this bustling spot. Then go order. Suits, hippies, hipsters and families all come through these doors. Sometimes they even sit together. Enjoy.

I work right around the corner and love this place. I'm sure it's authentic Latin American cuisine, but it's not Mexican. It's Salvadoran.

Toronto is not a centre for Mexican food, but stumbling upon this place was one of the greatest moments in my culinary life. The food is authentic, fresh and well priced. You can get a wide variety of tacos/burritos including shrimp, goat, chorizo, fish... The interior is cramped, but inviting. There are picnic tables inside if you can manage to... More

A small local restaurant that looks a bit dodgy from outside but inside is a special treat. Freshly made authentic Mexican food. Everything is affordable and tasty. Get the taco lunch special that comes with an axing crispy taco and tostada.
