Awesome Food – Our food came out on time and was prepared just right. I would recommend this place to a hungry person the portions are huge! Service as ok but the food made up for it! I
El Taco Is the Best – Great place to come for any style of mexican food. Almost everything on the menu is extremely good. They also have reasonable pricing.
Original – Well, I haven't been there in years. I grew up on El Tacos. The original Quesadillas and taquitos. Yes!!! They are the same but, I had to figure out how to order because you used to pull up and say I'd like a quesadilla and you'd get it. Now there are choices...no sauce, red or green. I ordered the red and wahlah, it was like history itself. Yummy! I also got the famous taquitos which were exactly the same. They don't skimp on Guacamole either. I tried to order a salad and got confused because all I remembered there being was one choice of salad dressing and now their were 2 to choose from. The salad had more stuff in it and all I wanted was lettuce & dressing. It's ok. All in all I loved the experience and being able to take my kids to enjoy a piece of my history.
Americanized Mexican food – What I didn't like is that they didnt have any Mexican drinks, like horchata, jamaica or tamarindo....they had ur basic tacos, quesadillas, tostadas etc...but the tacos don't even include cilantro or onion!!!!! the nachos were a decent portion though, small and enough for me but the refried beans tasted different....I didnt like the authenticity of the food but it was ok to go eat there again,..but not for tacos...i prefer mine how they originally are made!
