“SO AMAZING!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This place is incredible, honestly the neighborhood seemed sketchy, but you walk through that big wooden door and you feel like you are in Mexico on holiday! The service was great, the salsa bar is incredible with so many different varieties to choose from. I had the street tacos, so delicious! The place is small, so you've got to come in and find a spot and be ready for great food! The artwork is beautiful, just a really cool place! I wish it was in Austin, Texas :( Would go back for sure if ever in Phoenix area.

“Great tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

Don't be fooled by what appears from the outside to be a grimy hole in the wall. Authentic fare, excellent prices, good service. Particularly impressed with the dogfish and cactus (really!) tacos.

“Oh my god.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

So much deliciousness. I got the chicken mole taco and the carne asada taco . . . the mole was the best mole I've ever had in my life. I love the salsa bar that allows you to customize your taco a little. Delicious, cheap eats can be found here. I wasn't wild about the house salsa that comes to your table with chips but who cares when you can get any of the 20 choice salsas at the salsa bar.

“Super Gourmet Taco's That are Divine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

This totally hip restaurant in Phoenix needs it name changed on Trip Advisor. The new name is
La Santisima Gourmet Taco Shop. I've eaten plenty of taco's in Mexico and these are extra super
fabulous and divine. The menu is mesmerizing. I will go there every time I am in Phoenix to try something new from their menu. The interior of La Santisima is small and beautifully designed.
The Paintings on the walls are contemporary Day of the Dead themes and masterfully done by two distinctive Mexican artists. Don't miss this restaurant!

“Great tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

I love tripadvisor. I never would have found this treat. I tried a fried shrimp taco, a pork shoulder taco, and the shark specialty taco. All were great. The salsas were good too but not needed for the flavorful tacos. Highly recommended.
