To me, this is the best Mexican food in downtown Mt. View and it doesn't break the bank. Their service is good and fast. The food is flavorful and filling and their pricing is very reasonable.

I was craving menudo & this was the only place that served it in the 5 mile radius. The restaurant was busy for Sunday brunch, although no waiting. It took a good 10 minutes for the waitress to notice us & take our order. I had menudo while my companion had breakfast burrito. The menudo was average, the soup base... More

I've been eating in this place several times in the past year, especially for dinner. Good Mexican food, nice atmosphere, and very good prices!

I lived in Mountain View for 7+ years so will finally write some reviews for our go to spots. Above average taqueria, my favorite was their breakfast offerings, esp the chilaquiles.

This is the place you can go when you feel the need for Mexican food. They have the standard Texmex stuff (fajitas, burritos...) and some more unique, like shrimp fajita burritos. Fresh squeezed mixed orange/carrot juice is great too. The service is ok, they started charging chips and salsa ($1.75) which made my kids sad.

We love Mexican food and we've had better than this...my shrimp burrito was huge and stuffed but the shrimp were few and lacked flavor. The other dishes my family ordered were fine but not memorable at all. Service was friendly and fast. They charge for chips and salsa, when many taquerias have an all you can eat bar for that...

Five of us gorged on delicious, great quality food and the bill came to $45! I can highly recommend this brilliant hole in the wall.

This is barely bigger than a hole in the wall. (just barely) When someone visits and wants a burrito anyone within earshot that has been here recommends this place. Immediately. The burritos are good. The tacos are good. The staff has always been welcoming and pleasant. I've mostly done takeout so I can't speak to the dine-in service.

Taqueria Los Charros's food can be good to great BUT only 50% of the time. Often it's a gamble what you end up tasting, due to how much liquids they put on most of their dishes (sauces, sour cream, and salsas). I'm happy to share this review in the hopes the restaurant's owner will also change the way they treat... More
