They have the best food, the owner is usually working and keeping an eye on everything. The food always tastes fresh and delicious, I live in the neighborhood and stop by often. I like to bring my friends here because we are always treated well and everyone loves the variety available on the menu. Whether you're a vegetarian or a die-hard carnivore there are many soon-to-be favorites on the menu for you.

Dude - I've seriously eaten almost everything on the menu here and it is all great! Don't tell them that they ought to raise their prices cuz this place is dirt cheap too!

Food is awesome. – This place is great. The kitchen is clean and the staff are friendly. The tongue makes great 2$ tacos and the pork is perfect.

Salsa Verde. Salsa Verde.

Citysearch Editorial Review – Especially in parka weather, you won’t find much common ground between Minneapolis and the ethnic neighborhoods of Southern California. One rare exception is the recent proliferation of some truly great taquerias in and around the Twin Cities, and Northeast Minneapolis’ El Taco Riendo is among the best. From tamales to tripe tacos (yes, tripe--look it up if you must), the menu offers a range of authentic Mexican eats at pleasingly low prices. Indeed, if this place had a drive-thru and stayed open until 2am, it would make corporate abominations like Taco Bell truly obsolete. Particularly good are the zesty chorizo and the range of green and red salsas you can use to adorn your meal.
