We had the fish tacos and beef tacos our first visit, excellent food, service with a smile and quality ingredients. Came second time for fish tacos again with excellent results a second time. Tried for a third visit but found them closed, information on line...for hours doesn’t seem to match for us but it is worth a short walk from Centro area to check everyday !!!! It’s that good!!More

A small restaurant that caters to locals. Limited menu offering a variety of tacos like bistek, Lengua, cabeza and tripas. Tacos are hot and fresh but a bit pricey. Still a good place to go for a taste of authentic Mexican flavors.

A perennial fave! Been bringing friends here for decades. Quality and service are consistently excellent. Fish tacos, carne asada tacos, so hard to decide, so I usually get one of each. Biggest tacos in town, fresh toppings.

Excellent food. The carne tacos are very good. The prices are very reasonable. The place is a bit sketchy looking but look past that.

Fantastic asada and fish tacos, the food is made fresh to order, all the toppings are out for you to customize your taco. The tacos are very large and filling. The staff was fantastic, friendly, and spoke excellent English. The asada taco with flour tortilla...was the best taco I have ever had in my life. The restaurant was recommended by a local hotel staff member. I am so glad that she recommended this restaurant!More

Quite literally stumbled across this place while out early in my trip. They were not supposed to be open (according to google) but we saw a line, so gave it a try. My goodness it was delicious! Not much to look at inside, but so...yum. Went back a few other times but they were not open again. Google hours are not anywhere close to accurate lol.More

Our trips to Loreto wouldn't be complete without a stop at El Rey's. All of their selections are awesome! The fish tacos and Carne Asada tacos never disappoint! A "Must-Do" if your ever in the area.

Best fish and cabeza tacos ever. Highly recommended when you’re in Loreto. I’d eat here every day if I could. Amazing food ❤️

The. Best. Tacos. I’ve ever had. This place is legit! We waited over an hour for the tacos, mid day, mid week, but it was sooo worth it. This is a place where locals and “in the know”gringos go. The hours are sporadic, but I...believe it’s due to only being open when they get fresh meat/fish and they are only open until they run out of food The tacos are HUGE and come with all kinds of fixings (salsas, crema, toppings, etc). We ordered 8 tacos, 2 lemonades and a coke all for $25 USD! We couldn’t even eat it all so we saved some for dinner :) Do yourself a favor and stop here if in Loreto or just passing through.More

As always, tacos are to die for. The saying, “ eat where the locals do” is never more true than here! Currently only open for take-out or “curb dining”! Their little dine-in area was closed off.

After a so-so meal yesterday the fish tacos at El Rey Del Taco provided the fix we craved. Eat in or take away (we took ours to go back to the boat) you are in for a treat. Flakey fried fish on a corn or...flour tortilla plus we were sent off with pico, salsa, a avocado salsa, shredded cabbage and grilled onions and peppers. Generous fish portions make it a great deal. We had 6 tacos total with all the fixings’ mentioned for the equivalent of $15 USD. He also serves carnitas if you are not in the mood for fish as well as chicken. Open hours are hit and miss but keep trying. You know they are open when you see the line of locals.More
