Taquitos, just the sound of that word makes me hungry. These guys are legit good cooks and are very cool. The taquitos are all they're built up to be and a little more. Get the avocado sauce and two orders and sit down and enjoy!

After researching online, I came across Cielito Lindo, and definitely lives up to the expectation! Portions are great for a cheap price.The taquito is crunchy and you can taste the pork inside. The green sauce they serve with its delicious. I tried the pork enchilada too and it was amazing, too big to eat by myself and it was only... More

Famous for their taquitos with guacamole sauce. I've never had any other menu items there, but always very good.

So my friend told me they have really good taquitos. They were cool. I mean they were quite beefy. The green salsa that was on it was pretty good as well. They called it Avocado sauce. I didn't taste much Avocado, but the salsa was good. There wasn't much seating available. I had to sit nearby on a planter and... More

An LA Classic - Olvera Street is the best, I sometimes forget to point it out to visitors, but every time I am there I am happy to be an Angeleno. If you eat on Olvera Street - or even if you are in a hurry on the way to Union Station - stop by Cielito Lindo for some of... More

Yeah, some of you won't get it, but these are the best in the US. Fresh cooked, hot out of the pan and drenched with that oh so special avocado sauce with hit of heat to it. A So Cal favorite for so many, we'll worth the visit.

Very affordable and quite delicious. The taquitos with guacamole sauce are my favorite, but there are other choices on the menu.

Good Mexican food and authentic natural drinks. The beef taquitos, cheese or chicken enchiladas and beans are my favorite.

If you happen to visit Olvera st. no trip is complete without a stop at this tiny place. The long line outside justifies the great food being served here. We tried the taquitos and they were yum. Almost everything on the menu looked and smelt yum, and there were a lot of content faces around. A meal including drink should... More
