I can tell you honestly, I have never stepped inside or sat down in this restaurant. I have never ventured further than the front window, but that's as far as you need to go for great food. They are quick and friendly at the window and work hard to make every customer a happy one. Great salsa... read more

Tacqueria Mexicano has little in the way of atmosphere. It does not offer much in appearance. Parking is challenging, and seating is limited. If these things are important to you, keep an open mind and think twice before coming here. There are other Mexican options in Albuquerque that offer these things. If you seek high quality Mexican food, at reasonable... More

I've been wanting to visit this restaurant for 3 years. I travel to Albuquerque frequently on business and every other time I tried the restaurant was too packed. The place is very tiny and if all the tables are full there is no inside waiting room. In my opinion every Mexican restaurant in NM can be judged by the chili... More

We are traveling across the country and were looking for a fast cheap eat. Taqueria was fast and the staff was super nice. The food was very medium and our bill ended up at $40 even though everyone (3 people) ordered items that were under $8. Obviously there must have been some mistakes. It's really our fault for not contesting... More

This place is always BUSY. They do a booming take away business as well as sit down. But there are few tables so getting one is a waiting game, but definitely worth it. Their tacos are perfect, especially the abodabo (pork). Their horchata is delicious and made fresh daily, as are several other drinks. Staff is friendly and helpful even... More

A favorite of the blue collar Downtown crowd, don't let the long lines stand in your way of your inner yearning for great traditional mexican food. If you can appreciate the Southwest equivalent of the local "greasy spoon"... head down to the Taqueria and try a bit of this and a side of that and a mound of the other.... More

What a nice surprise. Located not far off of Lomis Ave, and not far from the Presbyterian Hospital, is this eatery. Saw the write up on trip advisor and since we were in the area, decided to try this. Well worth the visit. Staff are friendly and food in very good.

Great food. Fast Service. Definitely go here to eat. I love the tacos and California burrito. A staple to go to every time I'm in the abq

I have been going here for years now and let me tell you that this place is very underrated. The breakfast and food is amazing! The price for what you get is amazing. I can't recommend this place anymore. It is something you have to experience for yourself.
