Still the Best in Simi Valley

Was in Simi Valley a couple of weeks ago and ate here twice for dinner. Love it! Love the street tacos and buckets of beer. Super friendly owner and staff. Cool, authentic atmosphere. My only suggestion is, don't change a thing! I will be back in October. Can't wait.

The restaurant has the best Machaco breakfast I've ever had. It's a family run business and you feel right at home. No pretence, just great food served by Adam with a smile. Excellent value for your money. I go every time I'm in town.

We love this place. We had dinner here last night and it was great. A basket of chips and a bowl of green salsa is brought to the table as soon as you sit down. We ordered a bucket of beer that comes with 6 bottles, but you only pay for the bottles you drink. The waiter was very helpful... More

For as long as I have been in Simi Valley 21 years I have always enjoyed El Taco de Mexico, it's always consistent. The burritos are on the large size and very good. You can dine in they have three different sections to eat, one being outside, the next just inside the front door and the last one in the... More

I like the fish tacos, they are great, if you on a hurry and you want to fill up your stomach, this is the place to go. People who work there are very friendly as well.

What began as an innocent craving for Tacos during a business meeting became a three-hour afternoon engagement at El Taco de Mexico. We all got the tacos. At something close to (but less than) 2 dollars a taco, we loaded up. The tacos are delicious. I'll get to that in a minute. What were we to drink? Horchata? Dr. Pepper,... More

I have dined here many times with my family and I have never been disappointed. They have the best carne asada tacos in Simi! We also like the carne asada burritio, chile colorado burrito and bean and cheese burrito. When we come as a family, we always order the Shrimp Cocktail. It is so fresh and yummy with plenty of...

Place was Okay. Could have been a little cleaner, service is average. Tacos were about the same as I'd get off the lunch truck on the street; some say it's authentic, I wouldn't know except a ton of places do the same style nowadays. Salsa was no better than anywhere else, not bad, but some of the fresh homemade stuff... More
