one of the best places for authentic Mexican food. I had 4 tacos: chorizo, shrimp, carne and 1 other. also had a rum-infused horchata drink that was amazing. yum. little pricey for lunch at 20, but definitely worth it.

This is a gem of a spot located in an underwhelming strip mall...It would be easy to pass it over, but don't! The locals love it, staff are upbeat, prices are good and they have all your Mexican faves, and then some. This spot is great for lunch, for families, or a quick supper on the go...You order at the... More

Arriving well into the lunch hour on this Monday, the line was aready to the door and we wondered if we would ever get a seat. Nonetheless, we joined the line and soon had our order taken. At that point, a table miraculously opened up. We ordered the Veggie Burrito and Huerache al Pastor. Both were delicious. My only complaint... More

I had researched this place and saw that it was highly rated, so I was excited to go. It was packed, which is usually a good sign. The people are friendly and it has a funky vibe with a DJ playing the night I was there. **However** my fish tacos were breaded, covered in a mayonnaise like dressing, and not... More

Locals swear that this is the best taco restaurant in Vancouver right now. The food is well prepared, the service is quick and the price is right. Super Veggie Taco with Cheese is a good portion of veggies and two are a filling meal. Pastor Taco (marinated lamb with pineapple) is tasty and Cochinita is a spicy pork. four tacos... More

The place is busy and there was a small line ahead of us to place our order. We had tacos and a beef with cheese burrito. We only waited five minutes and our order arrived. They have seven salsas ranging for mild to cry hot. I enjoyed the doable which was very hot but delicious. The tacos were excellent and... More

You know it's gotta be good! Sunday night. Pouring buckets of rain. Cold, wind blowing; a truly miserable night. Yet when you arrive at Sal Y Limon, it's packed! With a line at the cash of people waiting to order. It's really good food done well and for a good price. Sorry, can't really comment on all the dishes because... More

Fast is the word. Lines every day for this taco place, but don't expect to wait long. Service is really quick. And food is amazing. Simple decor. Authentic recipes. Multiple choice of salsas. Many gluten free and vege options. As a coeliac person, i can't tell you how much a little place like this makes my day.
