For an average taco at great prices, and friendly service, this is a good bet. It misses a bit on flavors, not terribly authentic and a bit dull, but their small cups of hot sauces are full of zing and zip (adding a bit more of these flavors to the tacos and guacomole might help). 3 tacos of choice with...

Excellent and authentic taco locale, I understand it's hard to find places for lunch, my friend who lives in Paris had tried repeatedly without success. We came in early (12:00) and had no problem. Great service and great tacos.

This small Mexican taco place has good meal deals with a variety of choices. It is very cozy and has a friendly staff – speaking English was no problem. We had a perfect snack in the middle of a very international crowd. Good deal, friendly people and delicious tacos!

Fresh burros which were great tasting... Service OK. Overall a good experience, one burros for 8 euro when considering the price of a burger on the same Street is 16 euro.

It's really tough to find authentic "Mexican" or "Tex-Mex" food in Paris. Candelaria is pretty good - their tacos have an authentic flavor, but they're really tiny for the price. This place tops Candelaria because the flavors are every bit as authentic and the portions are quite large for a similar price. The burritos are huge, but we had the... More

While the venue is small and the menu not extensive, the tastes and overall experience are just like the little taquerias in Mexico City. The ingredients and preparation are excellent. Also, the vegetarian in our party found enough choices to be happy. And the cocktails and guacamole are very good. We've returned many times.

Paris is an expensive place to eat and as a vegetarian there are limited options in most places that won't break the bank. El Guacamole had delicious Mexican food that was different from what we had been eating so far (lots of bread and cheese) and was inexpensive. We ordered the veggie burritos (8 euros) and they were delicious and... More

Went in with high hopes but was pretty disappointed. The frozen margaritas were nice and they came fast, but otherwise it was a mountain of corn chips with not much substance for the actual food.
