This has been our go-to restaurant for over 18 years. Its our favorite little restaurant in Yorba Linda. Its called "Taco House" so I always stick with tacos...especially the chicken tacos. We just come in and order an #12.

Their flautas are amazing. Huge, stuffed with meat. Super cold beers. Friendly & fast! I mix the two salsas together to make it hot and amazing. I could drink it I love it so much. They have Taco Tuesday special and TV's to see games.
