It's Taqueria Mexico, not Taqueria Mexicano

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... read 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

This is actual Mexican food, not New Mexican. Everything was good. Taco, enchilada, chili relleno, beans and rice. The green chili was green chili, not sauced up so, the chilies were not cooked to death and it was hot which made it even better. It is a small place but good prices, really nice wait staff and quick service considering... More

TIP: Get the tacos, very very good and well priced! Small whole in the wall place, not many tables, but the food is good, the service is friendly and fast.

Visited based on the great reviews. It's a hole in the wall but we were disappointed by the food. Beans had no flavor. Chile Relleno mostly breading. Tacos were greasy. Really...is the the best Albuquerque has to offer? Hope not!!!!

It looks like nothing from the outside, but it would be a terrible mistake to judge this book by its cover. Instead, go inside and hopefully you'll get a table...or take the food to go...either way, you will get some of the best, most authentic-tasting Mexican food you can find. The tacos are delicious and they slightly cook the tortilla... More

Wonderful tacos like we had in Cancun. Reallly small and parking lot is also small. If you work downtown or pass by on your way home, it is a great place to stop for take out.
