What a find! Small and insignificant looking with delicious food and really good prices. The staff were willing to modify menu items to give me exactly what I wanted (vegetarian). Complimentary dessert was very yummy. Can't wait to go back. Thank you!

Stopped by later one night on a recommendation by a co-worker, for a to go meal, and was greatly surprised at how wonderful the food was! My wait time was a little longer than what I had expected for no more than I ordered, but it was worth the wait. I returned 3 days later to go in and eat... More

Authentic Mexican food! Come here and you'll learn what Tex-Mex is and why I don't eat it anymore! Authentic taqueria, with homemade Chorizo, awesome Corn Tortillas (and I hate corn tortillas everywhere else), and a store beside that has all the ingredients to go home and make some more. But why would you... it's that AWESOME!!!!!

My son and I ate lunch at La Tiendita Carniseria Y Taqueria. Both of us thought that this restaurant was quite a bit below average. The service was slow. The waiter was not attentive. The salsa was not refilled nor were our drinks. Very little chicken was included in our entries. The restaurant had a sign stating that they will... More

Great people great food. Try the"Mexican" corona. Tacos are great. The sandwich is unique and our favorite. Never a bad meal.

We have been going to the other Mexican places in Elizabeth city and thought the we OK. Then we found La Tiendita. This is the real deal. This is the way Mexican food should be done, not like the chains that try to serve Mexican. I will never go back to the chain places again. Really authentic food, reasonable quantities,... More

We were driving north following our usual route and stopped for the evening at the nearby Hampton Inn. At our request the front staff suggested several restaurants where we could have dinner. They didn't mention LaTiendata which we identified using a Google search. When we inquired they admitted that they had dined there with friends and enjoyed the meal. We... More

Everyone enjoyed their meal. Carne asada platter & burrito. Carne asada was delicious. I ordered the street tacos lengua. It was mini size and lengua was ok. The churros and flan were delicious. I would go back.
