This place rocks. I have not had a bad meal here and have tried over ten of their dishes. It is great (and very affordable)

Made the drive to the restaurant based on outstanding reviews. Not worth the drive. Average chicken mole enchiladas, chips & salsa. No alcohol at this location either. Guess I missed that in the fine print. Nice server - just average all around, won't be back.

Not much to look at, but it is always crowded here because the food is really good. Noise level is loud. To use the restroom, you have to get a key and walk outside around to the back, rain sleet or snow. You get the idea?

In a small non-descript building in Dayton you will find a gem of a Mexican restaurant. The Taqueria Mexicana is a great place for lunch or dinner. I had the Pollo Campechano which was hot and tasty and served with all the trimmings and fresh hot totrtillas. The gaucamole and salsa are also very tasty with giant portions available. Reasonably...

We went based on the overwhelming positive reviews here and on other sites. It was well deserved. Super nice servers and good food.

What this place lacks in decor - it more than makes up for in flavour !!! You know it is good when the locals eat there too -it is so popular, they do almost as much in takeout as they do with eat in. The menu is simple and well laid out. Don't be afraid to ask for a recommendation.... More

Trip Advisor asks if this is one of the best meals I've ever had in a restaurant. It's not in my top 10, but would be in my top 20. It's a small venue in a mostly vacant part of Dayton, but the joint is hopping!! Locals and tourists alike all drive in to enjoy the food and service. Fantastic... More

This is not your ketchup-tasting salsa Mexican restaurant. Salsa has bite! The burrito was extremely fresh and my sizzling skillet of delicious mushrooms, onions, cheese, chorizo and chicken was divine! It's not in the best neighborhood, but I'm a firm believer that the dumpier-looking the Mexican restaurant, the better the for is.
