This is one of the better Mexican restaurants on 24th St. It is a stand alone location and has its own parking lot.
They were busy when I stopped in for lunch, but had plenty of staff on hand to keep things moving. The interior holds quite a few people and was very clean. The windows surrounding the dining area made the inside bright and festive. The staff stopped by my table numerous times throughout my visit to check on my meal and make sure I was satisfied. This level of service made Taqueria El Rey stand out from the other places.
I had ordered chicken enchiladas with rice and beans. Everything was delicious and the portion sizes were very filling. I loved the beans. Each table is served with chips and bean dip to accompany the meal. The red and green sauces both had great flavor, but the green sauce stood out. It tasted amazingly fresh like it was just made.
The prices were comparable to all of the other South O places I have eaten at. The level service was excellent and my food arrived quickly after ordering. They do have a drive thru available for those of you in a hurry. Well worth a visit for those of you searching for a great Mexican meal. I'll be back!
