“Great tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This place is really great. You can get 3 tacos and a soft drink for 10€! The home-made guacamole is absolutely delicious, I really recommend it. I just wish they had more vegetarian taco options.

“The tacos of Carne asada are great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

The tacos in general are ok. I LOVED the tacos of carne asada, they are the best I ever tasted in Paris, and the sauces are also great, specially the green one that's really really hot! On the contrary, the nachos were bad... the tortillas were definately old. I've eaten a lot of nachos and I can tell when the tortillas are not good and they weren't. Besides, the cheese was not great. Another thing is that the service is bad and slow... very slow... don't get me wrong, the waitress is nice but we waited a lot and we got our order wrong.

“True mexican taste, but too slow to be good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

If you want to enjoy some true mexican food and not the "untraditional fajitas", El Guacamole is a place to consider. It's fresh and made in the kitchen by a Mexican cook.
Nevertheless, it's very very very slow even when the place is not crowdy. 45 minutes to get a coke or a beer, I let you imagine the time to get a burrito. That's the dark side of getting a very small but traditional kitchen.
Service is slow as said, but friendly and speaking English, French and of course Spanish!

“Tiny Mexican restaurant in the 10th arrondissement serving good quality, home-made food at decent prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

We visited this little taco joint on a fairly cold Saturday evening and unfortunately had to eat on the terrasse as there were no free tables inside (the place is very small and it was packed). The food was very good, the service was brilliant (fast and friendly) and the prices were excellent for Paris. We had the “three tacos and a soft drink” for ten euros and also ordered a side of guacamole (five euros). The tacos were very good and were the best I have had in restaurants in Paris. Everything tasted freshly made. I would definitely recommend this place.
