This is a legit taco joint - in a middle of many great tacos and sandwich joints in the Coconut Grove of Miami. Tacos are loaded with meat and the Al Pastor meat comes from their trompo and topped with pineapple. Prepared simply with just...onion and cilantro. Good salsa too. Price point is a bit high but quality compensatesMore

Anybody can make guacamole or go to a big box warehouse club and buy eat pre-made and the salsa and call it homemade. Is made from a pre mixround beef burritos and tacos, follows the same rule. Ask them for a taco de lengua or...of Stirrer bottle with no sugar sti cueerito and they go ga-ga. How about a cheese and steak chalupa or a Chile relleno con quesofundido. And they run for the border The mojito is made from a pre mix bottle and no sugar cane stirrer.More

Food is ok. But the fact that they automatically charge me a tip when it's carry out its ridiculous. Lost my business.

Stopped for lunch. Affordable and good food - 2x Steak Tacos served with rice and beans for something like $7. Draft beer for $4. Service was very friendly.

It was our first time dining at El Taquito and I can easily say that we will be more than happy to visit again. The food was very good and the portions were generous. We had a few or their Margaritas and even those were...great. Food and drinks are reasonably priced. Highly recommend.More

On a walk around in Little Havana I came across this dive. I was tempted by the thought of a Pino Colada; bad idea! The Pina was out of a slush machine and it was tasteless and not fresh at all. I then asked for...nachos with salsa and guacamole and got fluid cheese, mashed beans or what ever it was. Try and avoid this trap.More

I've gone here so many times because it's definitely the best Mexican place near my home, but I've noticed by eating all over Miami it's also one of the best in the city. The service is great, friendly and prompt. The food is spectacular and...very fresh. There's nothing on the menu I haven't tried. All the tacos and plates are beyond tasty. It's also in the touristy downtown Little Havana area which is very accessible. Try it, you won't regret it.More
