They take cash only. Expect to wait in line. I should not write this review because the line is too long now. I know Mexican food. I have lived in the area 35 years and worked for a local utility co. 32 years in the field. Spent a lot of lunches all over this area. A little market in Somis... More

My husband and I were craving some great authentic mexican food without going to a big restaurant with big prices. We decided on this place and boy were we happy with our choice. My husband is from Mexico and was thoroughly impressed with the authenticity and freshness of the food. We originally wanted to split a burrito and a couple... More

This is Authentic mexican food at its finest! .... This place is to die for! The tacos are so good! The burritos are better! And all the fresh juices are even better... What can top that? - the fresh salsa bar and chips! ... This place is the best!

You may stand in line for 5 minutes to order but they deliver to your table tacos, burritos and combo plates. The quality of food is high and price is economical so lots of locals know this good place. The aquas are typical, horchata, jamica, but they also have FRESH carrot juice and others, sodas and beer. Excellent shrimp cocktail... More

Could not agree more with the other reviews for the Taqueriq El Tapatio. The burrito was by far the best I have ever eaten. Savoury, flavorful with lovely spices, served piping hot to the table by an absolutely lovely young woman who is working on her English which is already nearly perfect. Tortilla chips and dips at the free salad... More

This is one the best (underappreciated) and inexpensive Mexican Food restaurants in Ventura County! It's slightly difficult to find, though once you do (!), it's worth the one minute it takes to locate it. I eat light meals, so a regular taco al pastor and an ague fresco (melon) is so yummy. They give chips (not necessary), salsa is okay.... More

The title pretty much sums it up. There are a ton of mexican restaurants around town, but this place is always good. Never any old, dry meat like some places. This place is a guarenteed good burrito.
