Just happened to stop in here for lunch while strolling down Magazine St and it turned out to be very good. Cold beer, good Mexican food, and the guacamole I could have made a meal out of! Portions are large and filling!

We arrived here for an early dinner on a Saturday afternoon. There was only one other table occupied and we were able to sit pretty much wherever we wanted. No complimentary chips and salsa... I didn't quite get that but figured they didn't want people wandering in off of Magazine St. and lingering around too long. The server pressured us... More

I read all of the reviews and the reviewers unfortunately missed something that they should have noticed. This place has one of the most incredible salsas that ever hit the planet. Roberto, the owner invented it and it is a secret recipe. Want to taste this stuff; this Salsa Negra? Better get down there and try it. I have been... More

Taqueria is a well-established Mexican restaurant in Uptown. It's certainly not a big restaurant. The decor is borderline tacky. The drink menu is nothing special and honestly basic. The staff and owners are very nice people. You do not visit Taqueria for any of these things. People wait in line for Taqueria for the fresh tacos. You cannot go wrong... More

Fun stop on a hot day. Good food and margaritas. The atmosphere is laid back. Prices were reasonable and service was good.

The one on Magazine Street is hands down the best Mexican Restaurant in New Orleans. The food is fresh, floral and comes out quickly. The owner's are always there making sure things run correctly and they have an experienced and friendly staff. I always enjoy eating here, and it is great for take-out as well.

Was looking for a really good Mexican place in NOLA and looks like I have found it. The service is great, the atmosphere is great and the food is very authentic. Can't go wrong here!

The tacos are just the perfect balance between mid and hot spices. The meals are being prep right in front of your eyes and the fresh smell of ingredients are spread throughout the restaurant. Service is friendly, respectful and good advice on the menu items. Price was a very pleasant surprise!!!

This place is a hidden gem in the Garden District. My husband and I stumbled upon it on a bike ride. I do not know why it is ranked lower than El Gato Negro which is terrible. The chips here were fantastic, along with the wonderful margaritas and the biggest burritos we have ever had. They were full of shrimp... More

I wasn't thrilled with the rather unfriendly (non-friendly is probably a better word) waiter, but the place looks nice, inside. The beef taco salad was excellent and for $6.59, not a bad deal, considering it has about the same amount of food in it, but is half the price of the entrees. I think the main thing that irks people... More
