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.

We went based on other reviews here. The food wasn't bad. The service was good. My husband had carnitas and he said they were good. I had the bistec which was also good, but really messy. I thought it was odd that the salsa was free but not the chips. The guacamole was good, although a little creamier than I... More

This little place was really yummy. Best mole I've had in a while. Be sure to try the salsas at the salsa bar: four different kinds for all tastes. My wife's fajitas were two meals' worth and very tasty.

If you are dining on a budget and just looking for a tasty meal, try this place. As suggested in the title, the location is odd. The center is mostly empty and it's sits on the north side of hwy 111 next to a drycleaners and a sushi restaurant. Good authentic mexican food, with what I assume, were lots of... More
