My kids and I stopped in for lunch. We all enjoyed the food--very fresh and not greasy. The salsa was delicious! Very nice staff.

After living in Aurora for years a friend told me about Taqueria Muniz. It was less than two miles from my house! It instantly became our go to place for authentic Mexican. When you pull up you'll notice police cars and other local business cars. It's because everyone knows where the good food is. Once inside you'll sit down to... More

My first time there. I'm in Aurora for a conference and wanted to eat some good mexican food. After reading the reviews from here, thought I'd give it a try. We went for dinner and they were not busy. I can see why, the food was very average. It is not worth it for the price! Chips were stale, food... More

Had a wonderful cochinita pabil burrito and a large horchata. The place is not fancy but the food is very good. We started with the guacamole. The flavor was good but i prefer a chunkier guac than they offer. Theirs is a little too smooth for me. My wife had the queso fundido and would have liked a little more... More

This is a family run Taqueria. The salsa and taco sauce are made fresh daily and are delicious. I'm not sure if I'm there for the meat or the salsa/sauce! The meat is seasoned and delicious. I would love to know how the chef does it. The meat has no gristle, fat etc. We have eaten here for approximately 2... More

Second visit to this restaurant. Food is consistent. The tacos are great and very authentic with the cilantro and onions. The guacamole is creamy and a nice portion with chips. The flautas are crispy and very tasty. The atmosphere is very friendly and the service is great!

This little Mexican diner put out quality Mexican food. The drawback is there is no liquor license making it carry-out for most. I had an order of guacamole which was better than average to go with a carnitas a la mexicana which was very good. Another in the group has tacos which were authentic with cel intro and onion. The...
