This place is a small gem. If you like tacos, this is the place to go. The tacos al pastor are to die for. The tortillas are fresh, melt in your mouth. Great service. Small owner operated & great food.

Walking into San Julian I was transported back to Mexico; the aroma of sizzling pork and corn masa from the tortillas had me remembering my childhood. The menu comes in English and Spanish and is simple; tacos, quesadillas & ceviche. Chicken, shrimp, beef, pork, chorizo (Mexican sausage) and for the adventurous, lingua (beef tongue), beef brains & beef tripe (intestines).... More

I've made this place a weekly lunch stop for the last three years. While it may not seem like the most elegant place, I can say that it's definitely the best Pastor tacos in the area. The menu is limited but they do everything on it well.

This a small place with a great little atmosphere happening. I loved going there and hearing Spanish spoken all around. We were there on Good Friday and the Vatican Mass was on the TV - somehow so fitting and homey. The food was wonderful. The tacos came with corn tortillas and the quesadilla with flour. On our next visit to... More

The Al Pastors are the BOMB. Red spiced grilled pork....Onions and Cilantro. Isn't that the colors of the Mexican flag too? This IS the REAL thing. Order at least two. They have Chorizo Sausage Tacos too. BUT...the reason to be HERE is for AL PASTOR's They bring a trio of hot sauces. Put the green one on the chorizo and... More

One of the better taco joints in the 239. Small and frequented primarily by the locals. Only tacos on the menu so don't come looking for full mexican cuisine menu. Service is relatively fast and prices are reasonable. Could improve on air quality in restaurant for dine-in patrons. Otherwise loved this place. Have visited several times and always a treat.

We had attempted to eat here at an earlier date but the place was packed. Well today we waited until the rush was over and was immediately able to order. We both ordered tacos (chicken and pork). Both were outstanding in flavor with an edge to the pork taco. All of it from scratch. The sauces too were tasty and... More
