Good Taco

Our office placed a takeout order for the entire office. I ordered the beef tacos which were excellent. Another co-worker order the pupusa they enjoyed their dish as well.

Not a lot of Mexican restaurants in the area. This is one of the better ones, we are pretty picky about our Mexican food. :)

Traditionally large American Mexican menu offering large portions of tasty tidbits that don't disappoint. If you're thirsty, come for the ritas and try the (albiet cooked, but good) ceviche. If you're a parent with a youngin', come on Friday when a ballon animal entertainer and guitarist will keep young eyes preoccupied while you grab a frosty cerveza. If you just... More

The food is always good - try the specials. The marqueritas are delicious and the wait staff is always friendly. It's a kid friendly place and a bit on the loud side, but that's part of the fun of this neighborhood mainstay. The owner is from El Salvador and there are a few Salvadoran dishes that are outside the normal... More

This is an average Mexican restaurant- not much to say about it, either good or bad, but if you are in the mood for run-of-the-mill Mexican, this place works.

1st time going here while on a mini-vacation. We were a party of 5 on a Saturday and were seated right away before 7pm. The place was filling up fast after 630 but they have a really large dining area and outdoor seating too. I was impressed with the service there, the drinks were always refilled despite the crowd.

Love going to Los Tios! it's a favorite in my office, and only a short drive from King Street. We've been there several times with groups of up to 15 people and never had any issues. The food is absolutely wonderful (awesome selection available) and the wait staff is top notch! The only downside is finding parking on the street.

Worth the few miles drive from King Street. We were driving around looking for something different and ran into this spot. Very large patio, packed for a Sunday night! We got sat right away, ordered our margarita's and relaxed while we reviewed the menu. If I could have ordered 5 meals, I would have. We split 5 appetizers and all... More

Back again after about a year to enjoy the best Latin American food in Del Ray, we were not disappointed. The expansive menu offers something for every taste with burritos, tacos and enchiladas the most popular. A full list of fajitas was too tempting so we chose the beef, which was hot, saucy and tasty. There is a small but... More
