Crowded and hot in the market. My tacos were soggy, but spouse enjoyed the chile rellenos and son liked his enchiladas. They were crazy busy at lunch and I must say that the staff kept amazingly good track of the multiple orders and were consistently polite and courteous.

The pork, potato and Rajasthan tacos as well as the chicken tacks are phenomenal. The hibiscus Gaia fresca was great and not overly sweetened! Ordering is chaotic because it is hard to wait while your name is called and then finding a seat was difficult on a sunny Saturday! Overall I love it and will come back!

My wife decided to have lunch there (be aware it'll be difficult to pick just *one* place to eat at in the Farmer's Market). Her meal was a great selection of enchiladas. There is a Spanish restaurant in the farmer's market as well but this is the only Mexican one. The selection was quite good, even if I didn't partake,... More

Our group, minus the baby, decided to traipse up and down 3rd Street for an evening and catch some dinner. Little did we know to do the latter we would need to forgo the former. Too long staring at our water glasses, looking longingly at the folks who came later leaving earlier. So it goes sometimes when you have a... More

Best food stall in the Farmers' Market by far. They've got food for carnivores' and vegetarians alike! I personally recommend the potato tacos! They're making me drool now thinking of them!! Go to the Loteria Grill for amazing Mexican food!

I first read about Loteria in Bon Appetite when it profiled the stand in the Los Angeles Farmer's Market. This time, while visting... I had the best Sopes ever! Their Tacos are awesome too! What is great is that you can ask them what they recommend and they will help you deciding! Love this place...

Really good Mexican street food at the Farmer's Market. A huge array of yummy tacos made with very fresh ingredients. How to order is a bit of a mystery and the place is just chaos. Try not to get thrown and you'll be rewarded with some really good food at a reasonable price.

I'm from out of town, so when a family member broguht me to the location on 3rd street, I saw the retro, over-processed logo and automatically thought, "wow, not so authentic." Boy, I was wrong. The food is fabulous! Everything from the smokey salsa to the tender beef in my burrito wowed me, and the price is just right. When... More
