We ate here for lunch one day and had pork and steak for our meats. It was a TON of food and was extremely tasty! Great fresh tortillas, and about 8 or 10 different sauces with a wide range of flavor, and is very reasonably priced.

The salsas are excellent and there are "hot free" salsas. The service is great (we went at 3am after the club). The "pastor" is the must here but beef is a good option as well. The costilla chapati is awesome!

Great service. Accommodating. Great food once we figured out what to order. Loved the rotisserie meats, corn tortillas, guacamole, sauces. Flan was fair.

We visited this restaurant with some friends, the place itself is ok, a bit crowded because they have many customers, they have TV so you can watch a game while you eat, the food is excellent and the price is good, I would recoment the "agua de lima" which is a breverage, over all everything we ordered was good and...

I've been coming here in my visits to the city on business since 1996 and the place really delivers, even my vegetarian daughters thought it was great!

Forget about that ridiculous Taco Bell food. And go ahead with the original one. Tacos El Pata it is really good and honest. Good food and good prices. Tacos de Pastor is the best!

I used to be a big fan of the Queretaro place and whenever I got the chance, I (used to) drive to get my taco fix!! (is two hours driving!!) So, when they advertise the opening in my home town (San Luis potosi) I was really happy until the very bad service ruined my experience!! At first, the valet parking... More
