“Authentic Street Tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

The last time I had Street Tacos like this was in Mexico. I WAS super excited and Pleased to see Pastor on a Roasting Spinner. The tacos comes fully loaded (cilantro, salsa, avocado, dice onion) if u dont like the topping just let them know in Advance. I ordered one of each lol I wanted to eat them all but couldnt. Will stop before I head home back to South Texas. The restaurant is a not fancy real simple .

“Best tacos EVER!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Tacos El Gordo is THE REAL DEAL. They have the best tacos! Great quality, quick service... and did I mention they have the best tacos in the world?! Highly recommend to stop by at least once if you're in the Chula Vista area. They're one of the few places that stays open late (4am)

I have tried a lot of taco shops but this one is the only one where tacos taste exactly as in Mexico.

“¡Tacos Ricos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Went with friends and when we arrived the place was packed. We were newbies to the way you are supposed to order. At the grill there are signs for the type of taco you are interested in, then you line up there and order. It was pretty much all in Spanish, which was awesome. The tacos de adobada were my favorite! If I am ever in the area, I will definitely make a special trip from San Diego to eat here.
