I think the seating choice is on purpose because it always seems so busy plus the discomfort discourages lingering. Food's great. Point at the menu, make some kind of affirmative grunt and whatever comes out will be quick and tasty. The ordering situation for eating in is less confusing than it used to be -- order at the counter (don't... More

We went on a Saturday expecting it to be crazy busy but we lucked out. You can't order until there is a table, but this system works well. We ordered the special which was pork and pineapple wraps along with chicken tacos and crispy beef taquitos. Also homemade chips and guacamole. It was so filling and delicious. Loved that they...

In the downtown core and an easy walk to find! Line up moves quick but seating is limited. We've tried several menu items and have not been disappointed yet!

Tres carnales is a very casual spot, but by far the best Mexican fare in town. Rotating Authentic meat and vegetarian choices are always delicious, you can't go wrong. The food is simple but amazing. Be sure to try a 'Lupita' beer brewed especially for Tres Carnales by a local brewery Alley cat.

You have to order your food at the counter at this restaurant. My colleague and I shared the vegetarian special of the day as an appetizer, which was very good. She had the vegetarian tacos, which seemed pretty 'Brown' (lentil filling) and I had fish tacos, which were good. We had a hard time digesting all afternoon at work, thats... More

We were riding up in the elevator of our hotel with a guy who had bags of take out. Seeing as my colleague and I were looking for a place for dinner, I asked him where he went. He told us that it was the best taco place in Edmonton and had great reviews. We also mentioned this place to... More

After reading some of the reviews, we set out of find ourselves some great Mexican food. Absolutely no disappointments here! We obviously showed up at just the right time, because we got a... More

My husband and I had dinner here and enjoyed our experience. There was a line-up to get in (we had heard it's a popular place and this was a Friday evening after all). They do things a little differently as far as seating and taking your order but overall it was efficiently done and they'll even bring you a drink... More
