Description: Acerca del TacoHistoria de La TaquizaAcerca del Taco:El Taco tiene su hogar en Mexico. Forma parte primordial y a nivel mundial es reconocido en nuestra gastronomia mexicana. Tiene sus origenes desde antes de la llegada de los conquistadores y aunque es dificil precisar una fecha, podemos presumir que a la llegada de los conquistadores, estos disfrutaron de la primera Taquiza de la que el Nuevo Mundo tenga memoria.Hoy en dia cada mexicano puede enorgullecerse de haber probado, al menos una vez en su vida el platillo mas versatil, sencillo y delicioso, reconocido como figura principal de una tierra distinguida por su gastronomia. Dado que en Mexico es el corazon de la tortilla de maiz con un consumo promedio diario de 300 gramos por persona, 65 millones de piezas diarias se destinan a la elaboracion de tacos y tostadas. Asi la variedad de los tacos es tan inmensa hasta en cada uno de los estados de nuestra Republica Mexicana con sus sabores particulares y representativos de la entidad. El taco, no solo fue un elemento de la dieta diaria de gobernantes y plebeyos, es un legado de alimentacion prehispanica que ha permanecido hasta nuestros dias y que no solo es de gran valor en la dieta del mexicano sino que asombra y agrada a paladares extranjeros.

We truly enjoy authentic mexican food and found a great spot at La Taquiza while vacationing in Cabo San Lucas! The food is delicious, the wait staff is courteous and the owner (Gustavo) is there all the time to ensure his customers get the service and quality food they deserve!!! Since it is mainly frequented by the locals, the staff speaks limited English but don't let that detour you - with a little effort (the menu's in english too), you'll have a great experience in this open air taqueria. Our favorite was the pastor (excellent flavor and made right as it is favored with a pineapple at the top of the roaster). The price is very reasonable - we fed two families that included hungry teenagers for under $70 (adult drinks included!). Make sure you go here - we tried a few other well know options - this was OUR FAVORITE! We'll done Gustavo... (new friends from Granite Bay, CA)

The towel guy at our timeshare recommended La Taquiza in Nov 2008 after discovering we were patronizing Taco Loco. Taco Loco is fine, but La Taquiza is where the locals eat. It's now our number one place for tacos, especially the carne asada and al pastor, and the price can't be beat.

You need to know Spanish! The wait staff does not speak English but we had a great time and laughed at our very limited Spanish. We managed to order and the food was really good! The prices are great and this little restaurant has old Mexican charm, out of the way and very rustic.

One of my favorite late night places for Tacos a Pastor! Their stuffed baked potatoes are wonderful too!
