We stopped in at El Taco, today.
I had a chicken burrito, which was very good, and very authentic. My friend Debi, had a half taco salad, which filled the plate, it too very fresh.
A couple of beers. And lunch was under $30.00 with tip included.
Please if your in Nelson bc and feel like Mexican I highly recommended it.
Cheers.

For quick, decent tacos or burritos that you can take out or eat in, this quirky little place gets it done. This place always seems to have a line, but service is quick. The tacos can be a little difficult to eat as they are stuffed pretty thick and have a tendency to spill out all over the place. Burritos are fine. The inside of this place (it was a hot, summer day on the day of our visit) was absolutely hot and stuffy and I can't imagine working in it, let along trying to eat indoors. Thank God for the outdoor patio. Try this place for a little bit of the Nelson experience.

Taco joint with great sangria. Himica and home made lemonade. Cozy outside seating in summer. Decent Choices. This is not gourmet dining. A long time staple in a town with many great places to eat. The decore has been refreshed in the last year.

Was a very hot day in Nelson today 32C. We chose to take out back to our hotel instead of eating it as there is no a/c. Loved the burrito. Tacos would have been better if we had taken some salsa.

They missed a few items on our takeout order.
Chicken burrito was a little on the sloppy side.
Decor and location were good.
