This place has great food! The kitchen is very clean and very friendly staff. It's family owned and a nice place to spend an afternoon.

Have enjoyed the atmosphere and food at Tlaquepaque since 1987! Very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for a business lunch. Very attentive staff, good food, and great prices ! This place is definitely a winner.

Tried to go to El Faralito last Friday night 11/21, but place was packed. Too bad, was looking forward to their awesome food so my wife and I walked to Talaquepaque and were immediately seated. About five other tables occupied. Nice interior- changed a lot from the 80's when it was a hopping place with great breakfasts (menudo, chorizo &... More

I was traveling through the LA area and took the opportunity to meet up with a friend I do not see often. I ask him to find a restaurant offering authentic Mexican cuisine as it is something I do not find in the Northeast. He gave me websites of a few possibilities. I chose Tlaquepaque Restaurant solely on the basis... More

Before the big cross town high school football game Friday night, we met friends at Tlaquepaque Restaurant for dinner. The owners will be celebrating 50 years in business next year. Wonderful new decor. Delicious food...refired beans were outstanding and pork carnitas with warm tortillas were delicious. Charming smaller dining room with high ceilings, wood beams, collections of Mexican pottery on... More

The mainstay in Old Town Placentia, this restaurant was closed for a couple years, but is open again, and trying to reestablish its long-standing in the community. The restaurant is about half the size it was before, and the mariachi bands that used to draw people on the weekends are gone... But the authentic Mexican dished live on.
