Good tacos and guac.

A good quick lunch. Very tasty carne asada tacos. Service was fast and friendly. One draw back they do not accept American Express - not a deal breaker but annoying.

We have eaten at Los Tacos every three weeks for the last six months. The food has always been excellent. They have a great salsa bar. It can get very busy at lunch time but the service is very quick. The breakfast burrito is huge and tasty.

We used a Goupon and came away with 2 days worth of food. Very tasty, good value. We had some problems finding the place, but in the end was worth the challenge.

This is a casual restaurant with consistently good food. I have gone here for many years and there is rarely any turnover in the staff. It is also very clean. A good place to go if you have business or are visiting someone at the Huntington Hospital.

Mostly tacos, but good if you want a quick meal that is satisfying. Close to freeway 110 and the Huntington Hospital. On bus line and fairly close to Old Town Pasadena.

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 there, it's... 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.

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
