We stopped for our lunch and so glad we did! It's just a simple food stand with a few tables, but the food is incredible. Everything we ordered was delicious! We left stuffed and satisfied, highly recommended!

Everything we ordered scored somewhere between an 8 and a 10. We especially liked the vegetarian tamale! I was surprised to see some of the negative reviews on TA; perhaps those contributors had the bad luck of picking just those menu items that were sub...More

This place became famous due to a comment by Julia Child that it was her taqueria. We decided to try it. We arrived at 11 AM on a Monday. There were 4 people ahead of us. It was a 20 minute wait to order and...More

The food is very good, no question about it but the restaurant is a dump, the lines can belong, the portion tiny, you need to order 4-5 item to meal a meal. $$$ for a dumpy place. Los Agave a few blocks away does a...More
