Good authentic Mexican Food!

I've been going to this little Mexican place for many, many years and still like their food. It's located in a strip mall, right on the corner of Fair Oaks Ave and California Blvd., so parking is easy to find. I usually call in my order and it's ready about 5 or 10 minutes later. Sometimes I eat... read more

We are former long term residents of Pasadena until several years ago, my husband and I decided while visiting we would check out some of our old haunts. Los Tacos was always a great place to have great tacos with all the fixings, that's of course if you could get inside in under 10 to 15 minutes. Before writing this... More

The carne asada burritos and tacos are awesome here. Great deal. When I travel across the U.S. looking for decent Mexican food this is one of the places that I always compare my findings to.

Very good tacos and machaca! Great deal for a quick and tasty Mexican meal. I loved the breakfast chola quailed and machaca. Great job!

This place is the best deal in Pasadena for take-out Mexican food. The food is always fresh and the prices are reasonable. The taco salads are good and so are their big burritos if you can afford the calories. There are plenty of meat choices including good carnitas. While basically a take-out, there is indoor and some outdoor seating. It... More

This is nicer than a hole in a wall, but feels like a family owned placed. It's a decent place for a quick Mexican meal. This places has several things going for it: -Veggie friendly options, with lard free choices and veggie tacos and burritos on the menu. -Cheap prices -Lots of free parking -Decent salsas I came for the...

A sign on the wall in Los Tacos says "World's Greatest Tacos". Mine was greasy, tough and cold. The enchilada wasn't half bad.

Nice little place on Fair Oaks and California. And Such a Deal! Their nachos are really good, filling, and inexpensive. Get the chips on the side for take-out. A late night nacho run is one of life's great pleasures, and Los Tacos is just the right place to find that delight.

I stop by here often, for some good authentic Mexican food. The service is quick, and the prices are decent. It's located on the corner of Fair Oaks Ave and California Blvd. in the city of Pasadena, in a little strip mall. There's plenty of free parking and the restaurant does have cute tables and booths, if you choose to... More
