We go every month and the food is always good! Staff is so friendly. We take family and get the combos which are large portions.

I came here for lunch and had a nice meal. The tacos are quite good and the service is prompt. The portions are generous with a large amount of beans and rice served as sides. The prices are reasonable.

Real mexican, real value and owned by a real nice family. You won't be sorry for making this your South of the border stop. They are great with large take outs also.

Taqueria El Sabor is a small, local chain. This branch is on the west side of TCC, easy to find, lots of parking. Drive Through. Service is friendly and efficient. Eat very well for about $10 or less. I love that I can get Lengua...More

I've been a fan since the day they opened. With only a few exceptions, all the food is made on site. The menu is typical of most area Mexican restaurants, but there are other choices, such as a whole fish deep-fried. I love their guacamole,...More

This place is a cross between a fast food and a full service restaurant. You order up front from the overhead menu, find a table, and they bring your food out to you. The food is simple, but delicious. They have a special everyday, or...More
