“We loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Four of us went for dinner (open 5:30-10:30). This is everything others are saying. Two of the rib-eye tacos loaded on flour tortillas ... yum yum yum. Sitting on the street in the evening breeze was just the best casual evening to sit with friends and yak. Next time we'll take some wine, last night we worked on margaritas and beer.

“A must do!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

This unique local restuarent serves up the best tacitos, soft or hard, corn or flour. You can't beat sitting on the street in comfortable patio chairs. This is not your typical sidewalk patio - you are on the street. They now serve alcoholic bevvies although regulars BTO in coolers. Inexpensive and good!

“Keeping in Simple - you want tacos?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Keeping it simple, Tacos on the Street offers only three menu choices: tacos, tostadas, or quesadillas - all with rib-eye steak; don't go if you are a vegetarian. Excellent and inexpensive. An institution in La Cruz! Be careful with the hot sauce and hot peppers, though, very spicy! Be sure to finish off with a slice of Flan!

“Simple...Amazing...Tacos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

We decided to try Tacos on the Street in nearby La Cruz after hearing some great comments about the place. It's not the easiest place to find, particularly at night! Just look for the huge crowd!

We got there just at sunset, and the place was packed! We managed to get a table inside after a very brief wait. There are lots of tables, and the food comes pretty quickly, so there should never be a long wait. The menu is very simple: Tacos (with or without cheese), Tostadas (with or without cheese, and Quesadillas. All three are made with beef ribeye, and all taste wonderful! If all taco stands were like Tacos on the Street, I'd be eating at one every other night. For $10/person, you can eat till your stuffed, and have a couple of beer as well! Staff are very attentive, though most don't speak English. Before they bring 'la quenta' (the bill), they offer you a slice of flan in caramel sauce. GET IT! It's the best desert flan you'll find in Mexico! Truly a diamond in the rough as restaurants go!

Wonderful servers. What more could you want?
