Multiple places in Tahoe and authentic

If you want simple and quick taquaria food then you need to hit this place in Truckee. Note, they also have one in Northstar and Kings Beach. Taco's are always a good choice but this is one of the only places in Truckee to get a real California burrito. Prices are affordable and its the real deal... read more

Not bad atmosphere. No chips and salsa unless paid for. I had the Chicken taco which was OK, but my daughter had the Carne Asada salad bowl and there was a lot of grissle---yuck!

After reading other reviews we chose to try Tacos Jalisco take out. After all this cuisine is hard to get totally wrong. The line was going through the door and the menu appears to be broad. I ordered a smothered chicken burrito and my husband the street tacos, both our go-to's as they are difficult to get wrong. Ours was... More

I always enjoy my meal here, especially the street tacos. Yesterday I had the Garlic Shrimp - they were a little bland, but I did have to take it to go and eat on the run, so I know that isn't always ideal. Their carnitas are amazing and be careful with their homemade Habanero salsa ;). Service is always very... More

Stopped for a quick lunch on a road trip. Food was prepared pretty quickly. Guacamole was so-so, something was lacking-- like salt or spice, or maybe both. Tacos were alright, meat was a bit dry. Bean, rice, cheese burrito was good.

The food was ok. It seemed bland and the red enchilada sauce almost had a bar b que taste to it. My husband and son enjoyed the burritos but added hot sauce to it. You order when you walk in and then they bring it to your table. Chips and Salsa are $2 something and the salsa is like a... More

Tacos Jalisco is the place to go in Truckee for authentic Mexican. Our favorite is the carnitas tacos - soft tortillas, delicately spiced carnitas and awesome homemade hot sauce. Do not miss!

I go there when I can. Took my two year old grandson last time who has been there with his parents. He really liked the chips and the guac but would not touch the beans (he's in the picky eater stage!) I like the prices, the salsa, and most items on the menu. I usually get tacos but this time...

Pay at the counter, grab your beer and pick your seat. I prefer a booth so I can read my paper without being intrusive. Great little little tacos and the Armadillo is not to passed up, more than enough to share. If I could make a change l would have chips/salsa be served automatically instead of ala carte.
