We enjoyed our dinner at Taqueria Mexico. There are lots of choices on the menu for omnivores and a reasonable selection for vegetarians. The plates were loaded with food that tasted good. Very reasonably priced. Pleasant waitstaff.

I've been going to the Taqueria Mexico for many years and am never disappointed. This is a quite casual restaurant and always very busy because it has a great reputation among a range of customers -- foodies (who appreciate the authenticity of the food), students (who appreciate the reasonable prices), and latinos/latinas (who appreciate the home-style cooking). There is a... More

Food was ok but I didn't think it was all made for real.nothing exceptional. The food order came a bit to fast, to me it was pre-cooked. Drinks were overpriced for what you go. Atmosphere was good. Other places I'd go to. Nothing bad though just better places around.

Delicious, authentic Mexican food! I will never eat at Margarita's after coming here. The food was fresh and oh so good. The outdoor patio is perfect in the summertime and they even have a mariachi band on some nights (I think Thursday and Fridays).

I was taken by a friend to this restaurant down a small side street. You have to know it to find it. After a long wait for a table we had good Mexican food. Indoors is loud, outdoors is more quiet. Live music by a mariachi band added more fun, more noise and more Mexican atmosphere. I'd go back!

I really wanted this place to be better, but our meal was really just okay. Everyone was friendly, but the food wasn't anything special. Nothing was wrong, just really average for the price. I love a good hole in the wall place where the quality of the food matters more than everything else, sadly for me this wasn't it. They... More

Food was delivered hot and relatively quickly for lunch. Service was non existent though after that so we got thirsty. Staff was friendly though and parking is on the street.
