Tasty Tacos in Fort Myers..

One of the better taco joints in the 239. Small and frequented primarily by the locals. Only tacos on the menu so don't come looking for full mexican cuisine menu. Service is relatively fast and prices are reasonable. Could improve on air quality in restaurant for dine-in patrons. Otherwise... read more

Service is relatively fast and prices are reasonable. Could improve on air quality in restaurant for dine-in patrons. Otherwise loved this place. Have visited several times and always a treat.

We had attempted to eat here at an earlier date but the place was packed. Well today we waited until the rush was over and was immediately able to order. We both ordered tacos (chicken and pork). Both were outstanding in flavor with an edge to the pork taco. All of it from scratch. The sauces too were tasty and... More

This tiny spot has delicious food. The quesadilla pastor was so good, tasty crispy pork seasoned to perfection. Tacos are very good too. Get 2 or 3, they are small (only $1.50 for a taco, or $ 2.50 for the quesadilla) No sides or chips, but you can get a beer. Great taste on the cheap.

I have been going to this place for several years now and it is always spot on! A no frills joint but the food is to die for. The Pastor Tacos with a side of grilled Jalapenos! The Shrimp Quesadilla is super delicious and a must try!!!

This is a small spot In a strip mall on US 41-- maybe 8-10 tables. Menu on the wall. Basically tacos for $1.50 each and quesadillas for $2.50 each. English spoken. Tacos very good, quesadilla with pork outstanding. Three different sauces put on the table (2 red, 1 green) and all delicious. Terrific, bargain meal.

I hesitate to give such a great a review because they are always so crowded and busy already, to invite others makes it harder for us to get in. The food is REAL Mexican. If you do not like the taqueria atmosphere, this place is not for you. The menu is limited, but everything we have had exceeds our expectations.

Delicious authentic Mexican tacos. The tacos and quesadillas are simple but incredible, where diced onions and cilantro sit atop flavorful, juicy meat. The pastor (pork) option is slow-roasted on a spit and your tastebuds will thank you. As a note, the tacos are served on two corn tortillas while the quesadillas are flour tortilla based. The atmosphere leaves much to... More

So this wonderful "hole in the wall" taco joint is awesome. I get the chicken tacos with onions and cilantro and the shrimp quesadillas with onions and cilantro. Always consistent, super inexpensive, very quick and really delicious.

Pork taco with flour tortilla, cilantro and onions, and their hot sauce with a spritz of lime...that's all I'm saying. And you can't eat just one...I order three. My son and co-workers love this place too. I'm a regular. The pork is done on a rotisserie with pineapple juice infusing while it cooks. It is just yum.
