You can never go wrong when you eat where the locals do! Barely more than a taco stand and only open until early afternoon but you don't want to miss one or more visits to this place. Simple, fresh food, add your own homemade condiments from the counter, and enjoy a just made lemonade. Better already be in "Baja" mode when you go here-not a tourista stop! Has counter eating for about 6-8 and one long picnic table. After 11years of visiting Loreto, I would eat here everyday if my wife let me, LOL! Many great places to eat here, but only one "BEST" tacos and that is El Rey's!

It took us a few days to figure out El Rey Del Taco's hours, and we ended up having breakfast here before heading out of town. There were three taco options to choose from. I hoped to try two, but I found one to be a very complete meal, but I really enjoyed the cabeza. My husband had fish and cabeza. The fillings were prepared perfectly and the tortillas were very light and tasty. There are many additions to add - salsas, cabbage, guac, VERY hot sauce. If you care about good food, don't miss this amazing taqueria in Loreto.

Located on a side street in a residential area of Loreto. We were glad we found it open on a Sat. It was very busy,mostly with locals. The owner asked us to sit down and it would be five minutes before he could take our order. I ordered two tacos,the owner talked me out of it. He said they are large,grande. So I ordered just one and I'm glad I did. The taco,meat was a meal. Served on a large flour tortilla with a pile of meat on top. They have bowls of condiments to help yourself for toppings, salsa,guacamole,cabbage etc. That day they only had two choices,meat or fried fish. We only tried the meat but the fried fish tacos looked good. Not open everyday and they open in the morning and close when they run out of meat. The day we were there it closed by 2;00 so make sure you go early,not a dinner spot.

Never had a better fish taco in our lives than here. The only downside is that they're not open every day - otherwise, we'd be there daily!!

If you come to Loreto, you must not miss this place. It's seriously awesome. El Rey rocks!!!

A must stop for the best fish taco. Great beef tacos too. Everything made to order. They don't have regular business hours but if you catch them open I never miss the opportunity.
