The Pastor Tacos are like nowhere else. The sauce they use on them is unique. Great service, great tacos.

These tacos are real Mexican tacos..not the US type. The pork ones were great. I also had the chopped steak ones, but I liked the pork ones better. Lots of great sauces. Relaxed and very causal and a good price.

If you want standard tacos a la Jalisco, this is the place. Sort of a fast food taco in-out facility. Food is not drop dead but isn't bad...call it average.

By far the best tacos in town, and it's evidenced by the fact that no matter when you go, this place is packed! However, the wait is never too long and they can accomodate large groups without advance notice! My husband is from Gdl, his whole family lives there still and it is definitely everyone's favorite place to go. We go to the location in Colonia Providencia, on Ruben Dario.

Tacos al pastor, my personal favorite! Carne asada, grilled meat tacos, with that great grilled flavor, tacos de lengua [tongue], tacos with queso fundido [melted cheese]... I think the variety is substantial. Very typical of Mexico, these tacos. They are a bit smaller than the average, however they give you two tortillas for each taco, one under the other. I divide my meat and then have twice as many, or you can use it to sop up your extra sauce! The place is very clean and holds a lot of people. The service is outstanding and you never have to wait long for your food.

They offer a few typcial Mexican desserts, a variety of cold beer and other refreshments. It is a bit more expensive per taco than other places, but we've eaten at many places over the almost 30 years we've been coming to Gdl and this is by far our favorite, we've never been disappointed. Our kids are now in their 20's and this is always the first place they want to visit!!

A couple tips: if you live close enough and the place is packed, you can come, get your number, return home to wait and then come back. Also, sometimes they will accept a call and put you in the wait list over the phone. However half of the experience is waiting outside and anticipating the mouthwatering tacos. They do know their tacos here!!
