Authentic Taqueria in Dayton

Authentic Taqueria in Dayton, Ohio? Yes. I came back from living in California and had a friend mention this place. Needless to say, I ate here a number of times before I left town, and make a point to visit when I come for a visit. Nothing fancy here, just good food.

If you like Mexican, you will love this place. Not your typical Americanized Mexican Restaurant. Better than any Mexican I've ever eaten. Quick, cheap, and yummy. It was slammed when we got there and they provided great service.

At first, visitors might be a little offput by the parking lot and no-frills exterior, but once you are inside and the food is on the table, you will forget! They are CONSTANTLY busy, but it is worth the wait. You'll get a ton of delicious food for next to nothing and the very busy staff is courteous and thorough.... More

The food was really good, service was quick, $7.78 for food and drink. What's not to like. It's off the beaten path and not the best decor, but who cares.

Amazing, amazing,amazing. The chips were fresh and served warm. The food was out of this world. Had an amazing burrito with steak and chicken. It was huge and a great price. I am impressed.

The outside looks like a vaguely abandoned fast food joint, the interior feels tiny and run down, and the bathrooms are hilarious... That aside the kitchen is clean (I'VE never had any problems with food poisoning) and you'll get fantastically authentic mexican for a stupidly good price. The usual suspects can all be found here (tacos, burritos, fajitas, etc.) but... More

Guacamole and fresh made tortilla chips to start. Quesadilla (chicken) and the chilies rellenos were fresh, tasty and generous portions. Love the fact that they serve Mexican made soft drinks (no corn syrup!). The decor is pure left-over Burger Chef formica, but who cares when the food is so good and so cheap.

I dined here the day after Christmas while visiting my family in Dayton. The customer service was horrible and the food was just mediocre. I ordered Chicken Campenos and wasn't told they were out of chorizo until I mentioned to the rude waitress it was missing from my dish. No apology no offer of a substitution. Of course the dining...
