The best taqueria around but sadly a fire has closed them. Rumors suggest they will reopen. Hopefully very soon.

Been coming to Los Reyes for as long as I can remember, never a let down. This is pretty close to authentic Mexican food. Good prices. Amazing taste. Can't go wrong with this place.

A humble atmosphere in a nondescript strip mall boasts some of the most delicious authentic Mexican in town. Though the surroundings are....rustic, the food is fantastic. I've been eating there for over 10 years, and though the prices have gone from "really cheap!" to "good value," the quality of the food has remained consistently excellent. If you order to go,...

Located just down from the 22 freeway off Tustin Street, and next door to an Arco gas station is this mom n pop, hole in the wall taqueria. The place is tiny, holding maybe 10 tables. When you walk in, head toward the back of the restaurant to order. The place is CASH ONLY but the food is dirt cheap... More

I lived within a couple miles of this place before reading about it in the OC Register. Tried it shortly thereafter and keep going back because it is both very tasty and very affordable. Tacos are around $1.50 each, more for burritos and combo plates. I usually get the Tacos Al Pastor, which I love. A team of men behind... More

Number one choice here is the carnitas. Everyone raves about them. All the other meats are very good as well. I personally love the chorizo best. Cheap, cheap freshly made tacos and burritos. Small place with most people getting food to go. Can be tough to get a table.

It's not glamorous but it's really good food for super cheap! I've been going to CLR for 10 years and have never been disappointed. Give it a try - you'll love it.

I've been going to this place for about 3 years now. The people who work there are always friendly and upbeat. They have recently remodeled the inside so there is more seating. Try it out, you'll love it!
