This little gem is our favorite destination for terrific foods, tacos being my favorite. Try the chorizo sausage tacos among others. They're the best. Don't forget the fresh-made guacamole. This wonderful restaurant is worth the time regardless of where you live in the metro. Oh, how can I forget the friendly winer and his family. We love it, you will... More

Family run, not chain-store fast food. For the quality and portions they really could charge a lot more. Great guacamole and pico--fresh and chunky. Double-shell your corn tortilla tacos if they recommend it. Hot and fresh tamales. Will definitely return for more!

For quite a long time, I've driven by El Taquito Taco Shop and never bothered to check it out. In recent weeks, I've eaten there twice. It's the best Mexican food I think I've ever had. I don't recall the dishes that I ate. One was eggs mixed with chorizo with a side dish of rice, tortillas and refried beans.... More

Yum!!! I moved away from the cities now but every time I'm in town I stop and grab some tacos. Delicious food and great service. Last time we stopped on the way home and saved the food until we got home (an hour and a half drive).... it was still warm when we got home and was just as tasty... More

An authentic Mexican restaurant that has been Americanized to create an comfortable experience for all. You order like a fast food place and your food is delivered to your table. The room is large, clean and bright. The owner who takes your order is the example of perfect customer service. Friendly, informative and inviting. We ordered the steak and eggs... More

We spend a fair amount of winter in Mexico, and love 'Real' tacos. This place has some of the most authentic/simple tacos you will find. I tried it a month ago and have been back 3 times. Each time I was thanked by whomever was working and served great food. The place is a little worn out inside so probably... More

The carnitas and tostadas were delicious. However, the interior was so run-down and dingy that I was a bit put off. The restroom, which is shared with a beauty salon, was quite dirty. I would like to return for the good food, but I am concerned about the cleanliness.

We have been to El Taquito several times and simply put, they have the best tacos and other popular Mexican dishes in the Twin Cities... No it is not a fancy place like a lot of other Mexican restaurants in the Cities but that is ok with us... Since moving back to the good ol USA from Mexico I have... More
