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 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

This is a wonderful liitle taco stand. The pastor is amazing! Although the restaurant is no frills it's the best tacos around. We will drive an hour in traffic from the south bay just for their pastor.

I agree with the other reviews; nice place, nothing spectacular but the food is decent and the servings are big. What made it stand out for me was the guacamole; unlike other residents of Southern California who go gaga over guacamole, I usually find it boring and unctuous. But the guacamole at Los Tacos had life: lime and garlic I... More
