Love the beef taquitos they are a must have with the guacamole. I usually ask for the red salsa. It's hotter than the green one. The enchiladas are good too

This place has been around a long time. I've been going to it on occasion over the last 35 years. It's famous for mammoth size burritos. But what I go there for is their machaca con huevos--shredded meat in a scrambled egg base. The portions are huge; when I was younger, I could polish one of their entrees off. These... More

most people know this is great authentic Mexican food. We had our two samll grandchildren with us and they were so very accommodating. It was endearing and we sure did enjoy.

I got Chicken Taquitos and they smelled bad, almost had the smell of bad oil but the chicken tasted like turkey and just wasn't quite right! My husband got a Chili Releano and he wasn't too happy with that either. We won't ever be going back there! He couldn't believe the food could be this bad as he had grown... More

I have always appreciated nice brunch sessions during the weekends. El Tepeyac's burrito and food spread is exactly the kind of food I am talking about. It is inexpensive and really homely. Definitely a must-go!

We were fortunate and missed the crowd and only waited a few minutes at 1230pm on Wednesday. I had to go for the Hollenbeck de Asada burrito. Kinda pricey for $14.50 but it's huge. It's seasoned a little spicey and has good flavor. You don't have much time to chomp on the salsa and chips because the food is delivered... More

The grren chile here is just like my mom made!! Delicious! Yes it's in East LA but the area around the restaurant is safe because of the respect for the owner. The line can get a little long at times but moves quickly. They are famous for their giant burrito that can feed up to 4 but overall the whole... More

Visited with friends for a quick brunch. Good food and great friends, although a bit over priced. The horchata was legit!

My dad brought me to El Tepeyac for the first time in the mid-1960s. Who would have thought a place like this would exist in a residential area, let alone continue to exist for even longer than I've known about it? That was long before they even had the parking lot. The only thing that's changed here in 50 years... More
