Give me good food any day over a fancy and decorated place with lousy food. Loved this hole-in-the-wall family owned place. Hubby had a vegan burrito which he loved. I had the tiny tacos which were just right. The carnitas and the Asada very good . There is a salsa bar where you can load up on onions, cilantro, radishes... More

This place is simple and tasty. The prices were very reasonable for a freshly made burrito with chips. They were also very fast and certainly go beyond the typical "Taco Bell" menu found at many Mexican restaurants. I would like to go again to try some of their less common options.

We went quite a bit out of our way to come here just to try their authentic el Pastor (on the spit - with the pineapple on top). It's surprisingly hard to find this type of el Pastor, which is too bad. Anyway, theirs is very good, much better than others I've had, but not quite as good as Tacos... More

Nothing special, tacos and a few other items. But, the tacos are outstanding! My favorites are the carnitas tacos, moist, flavorful carnitas. Add your own cilantro, onions and salsa. The green salsa is spicy and great. I am in Lompoc for a few days and will probably go here every day!

I have to say that this place has come a long way. The food here is simple -yes, but the value and taste is spot on. I get the al pastor burrito and load up at the salsa bar. The fried ice cream is delicious for desert. I also recommend the shrimp diablo if you like hot food. The guacomole... More

Just a small taqueria with a limited menu. Yummy chips with beans instead of salsa. If I lived in the area, this would be a regular stop for me.

SO.... DELICIOUS! Do not be fooled by the bright colors on the walls... The food is amazing!!!!! This is our favorite "go to" restaurant. Food is always hot, overflowing, fast, and made however you want. We always get the burritos (tons of other options) and a "surprise pick" of my husbands choosing. All of their meat is fresh and not... More

El Tizon has the best tacos I have eaten in Lompoc. The Tacos and delicious, authentic, inexpensive, and are served quickly from a friendly and humble staff. The tacos are enhanced by an expansive self serve hot sauce bar which includes around five types of hot sauces, onion, and celantro. The environment is very casual.
