Very good spot! "Hole in the wall" sort of location but offers delicious authentic Mexican meals. I wish they offered some more vegetarian options but regardless the food is delish and I enjoy the caring wait staff.

Good authentic Mexican tacos. Nice Mexican people running the place. We're from Texas where Mexican food ranks right up next to Bar B Que as the national food of Texas. This place is good. We each ordered a four taco plate. The pastor was great, carne asada real good, carnitas good also. It's just basic good Mexican. Our fishing guide... More

We loved it! The price was right and the authenticity was much appreciated! Our server was so friendly and the food was scrumptious. It came out very quickly and nice and hot! Would visit again and again!

If you like authentic Mexican food, this is the little place to go. You can even watch the Spanish channel on the TV if you wish. The food is the best Mexican I've tasted anywhere. and you can enjoy an alcoholic drink while eating as well.

*Authentic* fried taco house specialty (cilantro, onion, etc), good atmosphere, clean (they cook with gloves), very fresh & hot, fast, and the nicest, authentic, most genuine, kind, warm waitress I've came across anywhere in a LONG, long time. Highly recommended!

A Boone local suggested Taqueria El Paso, so that says something about it. The restaurant seemed clean and had a good wholesome atmosphere. I had a lunch special plate with tacos and everything tasted great. The tacos were small, and I don't know, but maybe they're bigger if not on a lunch special. Am pretty sure the price, not including... More

Thanks so much for writing up the great recommendations....went here because the reviews and pics looked so good. They weren't lying! Had the tacos and got to pick 4 different ones. Also ordered the fresh guacamole which was more like an avocado salad with chunks of avocado, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, etc. Really fresh and really tasty. Highly recommend! Parking around...

Had lunch today and we tried the tacos al pastor, carnitas, and beef and chorizo - all are excellent. The quality of the meat (hormone-free, etc.,) is top notch as are the seasonings. Not much on ambience and the wait was a tad long, but the chips and salsa are good and kept us busy. Lots of Spanish speaking customers... More
