Authentic. Friendly. Delicious.

For quite a long time, I've driven by El Taquito Taco Shop and never bothered to check it out. In recent weeks, I've eaten there twice. It's the best Mexican food I think I've ever had. I don't recall the dishes that I ate. One was eggs mixed with chorizo with a side dish of rice, tortillas and refried beans.... More

Yum!!! I moved away from the cities now but every time I'm in town I stop and grab some tacos. Delicious food and great service. Last time we stopped on the way home and saved the food until we got home (an hour and a half drive).... it was still warm when we got home and was just as tasty... More

We spend a fair amount of winter in Mexico, and love 'Real' tacos. This place has some of the most authentic/simple tacos you will find. I tried it a month ago and have been back 3 times. Each time I was thanked by whomever was working and served great food. The place is a little worn out inside so probably... More

The carnitas and tostadas were delicious. However, the interior was so run-down and dingy that I was a bit put off. The restroom, which is shared with a beauty salon, was quite dirty. I would like to return for the good food, but I am concerned about the cleanliness.

We have been to El Taquito several times and simply put, they have the best tacos and other popular Mexican dishes in the Twin Cities... No it is not a fancy place like a lot of other Mexican restaurants in the Cities but that is ok with us... Since moving back to the good ol USA from Mexico I have... More

My husband and I stopped recently with a Groupon to try this restaurant. If you go inside (instead of using the drive-thru) you need to order at the counter and pay. The man at the counter was very nice and let us have time to decide. Quite a few people came in for takeout that they had called in. I... More

Being from Texas, we love a good Mexican grub house and this is it. It's nothing to brag about in location or appearance. Just a hole in the wall. Still, the food is fresh, yummy and worth returning for! Service can be a little slow but they are always polite and have yet to mess up an order. They have... More

Located in West St. Paul off Robert Street. This little hole-in-the-wall has probably the best tacos hands down! I remember the first time we stopped in their some time last summer, we ordered their pork, pastor and tinga tacos and wanted to keep eating them and not leave. Corn tortilla, amazing meat, cilantro and onions and that's it! Oh, you... More
