This restaurant has been in business for over 70 years and it serves the best taquitos on Olvera Street and, in my opinion, in CA. While the taquitos may be a bir pricy, they are definitely worth it.

Stand in line and probably not get a seat to eat at. Just stand or sit by tree. Very Limited menu. Tacquitos tamales beans and rice. But awesome flavor.

If you are ordering taquitos then you should have no problem. They are made with corn tortillas, shredded meat and a avocado based sauce. This is what they are famous for. Anything else you can ask if there is any flour... More
