This place rates right up there with other taco stands as far as quality and taste go . A little pricier than most but still a good value . A little loud at the lunch rush but you will only be there foe 30 minutes . Nice salsa variety . We were served on plastic / paper plates with plastic... More

This place is incredible, honestly the neighborhood seemed sketchy, but you walk through that big wooden door and you feel like you are in Mexico on holiday! The service was great, the salsa bar is incredible with so many different varieties to choose from. I had the street tacos, so delicious! The place is small, so you've got to come... More

Don't be fooled by what appears from the outside to be a grimy hole in the wall. Authentic fare, excellent prices, good service. Particularly impressed with the dogfish and cactus (really!) tacos.

So much deliciousness. I got the chicken mole taco and the carne asada taco . . . the mole was the best mole I've ever had in my life. I love the salsa bar that allows you to customize your taco a little. Delicious, cheap eats can be found here. I wasn't wild about the house salsa that comes to... More

This totally hip restaurant in Phoenix needs it name changed on Trip Advisor. The new name is La Santisima Gourmet Taco Shop. I've eaten plenty of taco's in Mexico and these are extra super fabulous and divine. The menu is mesmerizing. I will go there every time I am in Phoenix to try something new from their menu. The interior... More

I love tripadvisor. I never would have found this treat. I tried a fried shrimp taco, a pork shoulder taco, and the shark specialty taco. All were great. The salsas were good too but not needed for the flavorful tacos. Highly recommended.

Kind of hard to find but well worth the dedication. Our family had to wait 10 minutes for a table. The wait was well worth it! The waiter was very professional and made sure we were takin care of. The food was delicious and hit all the right taste buds. I will definitely come back again when visiting Phoenix.

The menu sounded good so I tried it. The location was kind of bad but the food was delicious! I'm from Texas so the Mexican food here is very different but good. The oaxacan black mole shark taco was excellent and the horchata is to die for.

My husband and I had lunch here today. We found it by looking at restaurants near where we were. I think my only complaint is its a little crammed from table to table. But the service and the food were amazing. We are visiting from Texas and wanted to see what Phoenix had to offer as far as true Mexican... More

I'm currently in Phoenix on business and an associate who is local took me to La Santisima (used to be La Condesa) for lunch. It's definitely a hole in the wall - but one of the patrons was driving a Maserati, which says something about the food. I had two tacos - the Mayan Cochinita Pibil (Roasted pork shoulder with...
