Come and get your fish tacos, mi amigos!

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... read more

Meh. It was fine, but not worth the LONG lunchtime wait with nowhere to sit. I'm also picky about my meat and they served a mix of shredded chicken (opposed to white meat).

Passing thru Albuquerque we decided to try a local Mexican restaurant. Made our decision solely based on TA reviews. Spot on. Super small ( maybe 7 tables and 4 seats at a small bar at the end of the dining area). My wife kind I have four younger kids, so we felt a little self-concise in such a small place.... More

Ok im from Texas so ive been spoiled by good TexMex food and my attitude towards Mexican restaurants in general is that of a snob. So with this in mind, i have to stay that this place was pretty darn good. I came here based on the tripadvisor reviews alone which i usually never do. Being that i was out... More

We were spending one night in Albuquerque on a cross-country road trip and wanted to avoid the chain restaurants so we decided to try this place based on other reviews. We got there one minute before closing time and they had no problem seating us and serving us - very nice! It's a huge menu and I really wish we... More

The sign and the website call it Taqueria Mexico, which might be confusing if you're looking for Taqueria Mexicano as listed here in TripAdvisor. The good news is that the food is great. The carne adovada is just spicy enough, perfect for a burrito. If you are hesitant, they will be happy to give you a sample first. Tamales are... More

There are loads of Mexican restaurants in Albuquerque. Most serve "New Mexican" food which essentially is Mex only hotter. Many are very good but few are a real down home taqueria with a varied menu of cheap, good, hearty, and not too picante grub. If you drive past this eatery, you'll usually see a full parking lot and people lined... More

This is a great place. Food was great. I tried two burritos, chili relleno burrito and burrito a la Mexicano. Couldn't decide which one was better since both of them were excellent. My wife tried shredded beef soft tacos and lived them. Our host was very friendly. If you are in the area and looking for some local color, please... More
