“Great burritos, great value”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

I'm surprised by the poor reviews. We ate here twice in three nights and though the burritos were excellent, particularly the pulled pork (we also tried the chicken which was very nice too). You have the choice of two small burritos or one huge one, both cost $7 which I thought was great value.

Service was a little inconsistent (good on the first night, poor the second) but for $7 I wouldn't expect different!

“Great vege burrito and dessert”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

My friend and I went here in April 2013 on a Sunday. We were able to get beer to drink (which we werent a week before in a different restaurant) on a Sunday as long as we ordered food. The vege burrito I ordered was good and the dessert burrito ( with nutella and strawberries) was excellent. We had a good time here so do not understand the negative reviews also posted on here.

“terrible”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

the place used to have the best margaritas, they just got worse and worse. most of the food is made offsite and its just nuked up when ordered. the drinks a horrible, made with local cheap moonshine. they will get you drunk and watch out for a day or two of a handover due to the cheap moonsine. the food is terrible.

“Worst (restaurant) experience ever”
Reviewed January 27, 2012

So, we decided to go bar hopping on new year's eve in Quito and ended up at Rodriguez margarita and taco. It is relatively small with an outdoor patio/balcony. We checked with the server to see how long it'd be open that night and he said for about an hour (it was around 9:30pm then). We ordered a beer and a cocktail/mixed drink since, the maragarita machine was out of order (I thought this was a margarita place...atleast, the name says so) and some nachos. The beer was ice cold and the cocktail was one of the worst I've ever tasted. Anyway, we sat drinking our beverages and awaiting our nachos when, a few minutes later, the hostess/bartender lady comes with the check and says that they were closing. Apparently, it being new year's eve they decided to shutdown early. It'd have been nice to have known that before we sat down and ordered. When asked about the nachos, she feigned ignorance and was looking at the server for some assistance. So, we paid for the drinks, left the cocktail, took the beer (in a cup) and walked out of there. I must say that she did apologize to us quite a few times (the owner/operator guy just started at us) but, the damage was done. Despite considering that this may've been due to it being new year's eve they wanted to get out of there, this is no way to treat customers. Not recommended.
