My friends and I were looking for a good taco spot near Santa Monica, when we found Tacos Por Favor. We arrived there and the place looked pretty ghetto, but that’s usually a sign that the food is authentic. And authentic, it was. I had...More

This is a little building that doesn't look special-but ignore that and head in! Most amazing tacos-had carne asada and beef. Good salsa-great guac. Nice quick spot for lunch. Kids even loved it.

The place is a simple Mexican joint. Self service, plastic plates, and all. But the food we tried was terrific: their beef quesadillas, fish burritos, and soft shell tacos were all very tasty. We loved their guacamole -- which was fresh and delicious.

Loved our food eating here at Taco por favor. We walked back to Santa Monica after our meal. Soles were a treat.

Rough around the edges, cheap, tasty, plentiful. Good salsas. The only disappointment was the veggie taco which was rather unexciting. They do take away and beware they shut around 8pm.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
