Mexican Food. Not New Mexican.

The best tacos in Albuquerque. Don't expect New Mexican food here. This is real Mexican food. The owners and the whole staff are so nice. It feels like family.

This is as close to real Mexican food as it gets in Albuquerque. Very delicious! Only complaint is the small space, it can get very crowded during lunch time!

Every time I'm in the downtown area I stop at Taqueria Mexicano. I love the food, love their service and extremely kind employees and love the value. I have tried many things, my favorite being their breakfast combo burrito. If I'm feeling less healthy I ask them to add melted cheese to their flautas with guacamole. Delicious. Also another favorite... More

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, both... 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
