I've been a client at El Borrego Viudo for at least 18 years, and i keep coming back, One of the best places for "Tacos de cabeza" and the "Pastores" are not bad at all... The salsas are extremely hot, so you should try them with caution. They're even better if you had some drinks before... jeje

Really I have no idea of what am I eating here... The quality is awful and the flavor even worst, you must use tons of salsa to cover the bad meat... Sorry, but true

If you want the best street tacos this is the place to be. Service is good and wait times are short. I have yet to taste better pastor tacos. This is a great place to end your night.
