A Nice Surprise

My wife and I were passing through Albuquerque and she found this place on her cell phone. We were hungry and decided to stop. Though it's a small place with little space to sit, it was just what we were looking for. The tacos are some of the best I've ever had. I had one chicken and one asada... read more

I have been searching for a long time throughout Albuquerque to find some quality south of the border Mexican food. My search ended when I came across this tiny little place. Everything on the menu is top notch and authentic in flavor. I recommend the Carne Asada burritos!

Went here based on Trip Advisors review. It was about a 1 mile walk from our hotel. When we arrived we expected it to be somewhat of a local dive but it was worse than expected. We went in and found that they do not serve alcohol and the tables were jammed together and sticky and overall the place looked... More

If you're looking for great food - this is the place to go. If you're looking for ambiance. It's not to be found here. Definitely a locals place.

You can't beat this place for authenticity, service, quality and certainly value. I ordered the California Burrito and it was easily enough for 2-3.

A small take-out / sit-in taqueria with an extensive menu. There is usually a long line that moves smoothly that caters to people from all backgrounds -- construction workers, doctors and nurses from the nearby hospitals, tourists. They have an all-day breakfast menu, which I enjoy, and the traditional Mexican dishes are excellent.

July 11, 2015. I usually make my choice for Mexican food based on the ingredients. This restaurant (actually says Taqueria Mexico on the sign) is a very small place on 415 Lomas Blvd. The wait staff, cooks, and take-out window were non-stop the whole time. Prices are excellent and huge portions. Menu variety is great and all Authentic Mexican dishes... More

This is a smaller local restaurant, but well worth the trip. The pork carnitas are perfect. The guacamole is homemade. And, the combo plate is fantastic. Don't miss stopping by this place.

As we were passing thru, I asked Trip Advisor for the best food in Albuquerque, Taqueria Mexicano met our requirements because it was close to I40 and Mexican food, which we love. Perfect choice! The place is a bit small but the food was amazing. They were busy but that didn't interfere with our service, we were in and out... More

I have been going to this little place on the corner of Lomas Blvd and a car shop for a LOOOONG time now. And I have also been to a lot of other pretenders when it comes to the making of fish tacos in this town, and any other. I give this little joint a Big Thumbs Up for the... More
