Authentic Mexican Tacos

Small local taqueria on Main Street of Morrow Bay. Fresh, delicious tacos, chips, salsa. Guacamole a bit thin but everything else superb.

This place is a hit in Morro Bay. Its is busy in the morning during breakfast, during lunch and during dinnertime! And it should be because their burritos are delicious and the staff is superfriendly. We had some burritos beef and chicken. A hard-shelf taco on the side, nothing special. But it taste like it should! Funny to say, but... More

This is a tiny place - seemed every time we were in the area, there was a sizable line. However, the line does move quickly. Seems locals like it as well. The food was good, but since we chose to take it out rather than wait for a table, it seemed to get smushed up a bit. Might help if... More

Well I can’t believe it! I overlooked doing a review for Taco de Mexico in Morro Bay. I have been eating there for years, probably a decade if my memory is working. I really like their chili verde and it makes great tostadas and burritos. I just had a chili verde tostada, which is a bucket of lunch! The flour... More

Based on the long customer lines, my wife and I hoped this would be a good choice for Mexican food. Unfortunately, that was not the case. My chili relleno was a soggy, tasteless mess, and my wife's tacos had a distinct rancid overtone. Prices were reasonable, but perhaps you get (or less) than you pay for.

This is a small restaurant that works well for "Take-Out", but the crowded & limited seating should be considered at peak dining times. From my experience, the food is average, but the service is great and quick. There is ample parking, however, there is only one shared restroom that has to be accessed from outside at the rear of the... More

Amazing burritos! Quite a lot of people but fast service and since many brought their food to-go, there was no problem to get a place to sit.

We always eat at the Atascadero location which is good. But the Morro Bay location is 100 times better. I had a combo wet Chile Verde burrito. The meat was tender and had so much flavor. They also served this warm salsa which to my surprise was awesome. Good thing I got there when I did because there was a... More
