This was a great little discovery! Very cheap tacos doesn't have to mean bland flavor! Service is quick and efficient and the food is always spot-on. It's a great little place to stop in on a whim or on your way home from work when you don't feel like cooking.

So this place is amazing. Absolutely authentic! In fact, last time I went the whole menu is in spanish! Luckily they do have picture cues. It's one of the cheapest and best tasting Mexican food places in the city. Not greasy, very light. Excellent variety. Worth it to eat inside at least once, that way you can try the abundant... More

They have huge and delicious breakfast burritos. We order from them when we work on the weekends. Best I remember a breakfast burrito was close to 5 dollars, but well worth it.

I have no compalints about this place other that it needs a renovation. From the chairs and table to the counter were you order food. The plates are generous, great prices and the food is very tasty. Service is excelent like always.

Must try carna asada burrito. Lots of meat for the money. We love this place! We also enjoy the authentic Mexican sodas and my son thinks their cheese dip is the best.

So, researching trip advisor, I always try to venture and try new things as I travel; which led me to El Taco Veloz. Unless you've actually sat down to dinner with a Latino family, you may shy away from El Taco. It is absolutely as close to a Mexican feast as possible. No fake, preproceesed shells or torteias here...it's all... More

The closest you will find to Mexican street vendor tacos here in the states. Excellent, tasty tacos are, at present, either $1 or $1.50 depending on the type. Burritos full of meat and just as good. Has a drive-thru. Mexican soft drinks like Jarritos available. Food is consistent unlike many of the other mexican dives around here.
