Great authentic Mexican cuisine.

This is a small restaurant in a strip mall at the corner of Dune Palms and HWY 111. The best Mexican food we have ever had. Authentic in every way. Street tacos of every kind imaginable. I had beef tongue, al pastor, and pork stomach . Great fish tacos. Wonderful salsas. Doesn't look like much from... read more

A wonderful evening. Visiting from Austin, Texas I took a chance on this smaller restaurant based on reviews on tripadviser. It's located in a strip shopping center and a little hard to locate. Don't let the store front fool you. They advertise a take out taco bar but connected is the quaint restaurant nicely decorated with Aztec art. The salsa... More

Found this place through other reviews, as we were just visiting the area. This is a small casual place, but the food was outstanding. There was a large group at the same time we were there, but that did not seem to detract from the level of service we received. Others have noted that this place is sort of hidden;... More

All good. Clean, family oriented. Good food and pleasant staff. We waited a bit longer than usual for a casual restaurant but they were jammed! Every table full and one very large party of 12 was taking center stage. Will go again!

Courteous service, clean establishment and some delightful tacos were what the doctor ordered. We had buche, cabeza, lengua, al pastor and my daughter cleaning up with a carne asada. Tacos were priced at 1.99 To me, the stand out was the buche. It takes over as the best buche taco I have had to date. It was chopped into bite... More

Found this place based on reviews and proximity to where we were staying. Pollo asada burrito was decent - light on chicken and minimal seasoning. Chips had a burnt taste. Just did not rate as an above average meal.

On our way to another place we got lost and saw TT in the back corner of the strip mall. Very pleased we stopped. Wonderful colours and tapestries. VERY clean with quick service. Had a Mexican breakfast which was very tasty and more then enough. We left some on our plates. If you like a spicy salsa they have it.... More

We stopped at this little hole in the wall because we were in La Quinta and in the mood for Mexican food. The options were pretty standard. I had the pollo asado burrito. It was delicious, and not overpriced. I like that the burritos come with beans, rice, meat, and guacamole without surcharges. So often now I want a burrito... More

I enjoy noples, but I am hesitant to try them at a restaurant. However, the nopales and carne asada plate at Taqueria teotihuacan are amazing, they taste like the ones my mom makes. the cevche is great too, very fresh and tasty. The two best things at this taco shop are the horchata and the green salsa.
