The chicken tacos must be grilled. Not cooked. Fast service. Good salsas and curtido. Great location across antique shopping and other venues.

I had purchased a Groupon for this restaurant so while we were in the area we stopped by for dinner. The four of us ordered our individual orders but ended up with a small feast of food at our table for a reasonable price. This is not a full on authentic Mexican restaurant but the food is very flavorful and... More

Fresh and delicious. Large burritos. Full menu. Not enough parking. Small seating area. Best for take-out.

A good quick lunch. Very tasty carne asada tacos. Service was fast and friendly. One draw back they do not accept American Express - not a deal breaker but annoying.

We have eaten at Los Tacos every three weeks for the last six months. The food has always been excellent. They have a great salsa bar. It can get very busy at lunch time but the service is very quick. The breakfast burrito is huge and tasty.

We used a Goupon and came away with 2 days worth of food. Very tasty, good value. We had some problems finding the place, but in the end was worth the challenge.

This is a casual restaurant with consistently good food. I have gone here for many years and there is rarely any turnover in the staff. It is also very clean. A good place to go if you have business or are visiting someone at the Huntington Hospital.

Mostly tacos, but good if you want a quick meal that is satisfying. Close to freeway 110 and the Huntington Hospital. On bus line and fairly close to Old Town Pasadena.

I've been going to this little Mexican place for many, many years and still like their food. It's located in a strip mall, right on the corner of Fair Oaks Ave and California Blvd., so parking is easy to find. I usually call in my order and it's ready about 5 or 10 minutes later. Sometimes I eat there, it's... More

We are former long term residents of Pasadena until several years ago, my husband and I decided while visiting we would check out some of our old haunts. Los Tacos was always a great place to have great tacos with all the fixings, that's of course if you could get inside in under 10 to 15 minutes. Before writing this... More
