Disgusting plastic taste from the beef Tacos. No idea why, but that's not normal. The chips were rock hard. I've never had such bad tasting Mexican food before. This was very surprising given how good the reviews are.

The food at El tarasco has always been very tasty, but it used to be reasonably priced. Now the food is till good, but, too pricey

After arriving in LA - and a 4+ hours trip, Mexican cuisine was welcomed. Nestled in a busy shopping center with other restaurants and plenty of parking.

The prices were amazingly good! I've read that it was a good place to grab something but didn't expect it was so cheap and SO GOOD. Tried the carnitas tacos and "el tarasco" taco. Would definitely go back!!

I've been to this place so many times that I can count. It is a very informal place, the tables are not fancy, mas if you want real Mexican food you have to stop and try their food. Their fajitas are great. Carnitas very well...More
