We love to support small local eateries, and Taqueria el Vecino is a favorite. Start things off with chips and fresh salsa from the salsa bar. My kids love the various quesadillas and bean dip. We tend to get a combination of the yummy fresh...More

We have our favorite Mexican restaurants, but frequently drive past El Vecino. We decided it was time to give it a try. Located in a small strip shopping center, parking was easy. Upon walking in, we immediately noticed that there appeared to be no Mexicans...More

Hello Lladnar, I read your review of Taqueria el Vecino this morning. Promptly, upon arriving at work today, I ordered a steak burrito. I am in agreement that the meat was under seasoned and have corrected that issue. I have also reviewed cheese and salsa...More

Great food and drinks. Good service. Festive and comfortable atmosphere. Love the salsa bar and fresh chips. Taco Tuesdays are the highlight of the week for us.

We enjoyed our lunch outside on the patio of tacos and tamales. Whether eating inside or out on the patio, it is a nice place to visit for lunch or dinner. Inside is a bar of several salsas and fixings; chips brought to the table....More

The tacos are decent, but a little pricier than one would expect. The service is typically friendly. The fried chicken tacos are good. Simple strip mall atmosphere with a nice patio.

We were in the area and happened upon this strip mall taqueria, and we'll seek it out again. We enjoyed the complimentary chips and salsas (quite a variety available at the salsa/condiments bar) along with a very nice margarita. El Vecino offers an interesting selection...More
