I went down here on a Friday evening eariler this month and I have to say these tacos are very authentic and reminded me of the tacos I had in Mexico! I ordered 3 tacos and a drink for takeout. Cash payment is preferred.
It?s hard to not TACO?bout this spot, when it?s this authentic and good! We got Camarones a la Mexicana and Lengua Tacos. Camarones a la Mexicana was Shrimp Taco cooked in a sweet sauce with Cilantro and Onions, the Shrimps were a bit overcooked but the flavour was BOMB! Lengua Tacos were Beef Tongue Tacos, it came with 2 THICK slices of Beef Tongue on soft Tortilla, topped with Cilantro, Onions, this was probably one of the BEST Tacos we have had around the city! Overall, this spot is SUPER authentic, it?s not really a Restaurant, they have 2 Patio tables and a couple of Bar seats, but gosh these Tacos were LIT?
Came here for tacos but ordered one of their sandwiches instead and BOY did we not regret it! This unassuming meat haven makes amazing heavy hitting sandwiches that are absolutely loaded (1 sandwich can feed 2-3 people). We got the al pastor sandwich which was packed with fried cheese(!), al pastor meat, tomatoes, refried beans, and a mayo based sauce all on a crunchy roll. The flavours were bold but not spicy, and the textures were melt in your mouth. The service was friendly, but be prepared to wait as both times I have visited I was required to wait 30-45 min for my food. 100% a must try in Toronto.
Never been to Mexico but I get the feeling this is authentic. Great tacos and sandwiches(Mexican Submarines?) The servers are friendly and competent, the tacos are large, delicious and generously filled. It's a little dingy on the inside.. given the prices($100 for 4 with tip) but I'd rather have good food over atmosphere.
"Supporting the Small Family Business" 4 stars for food 4 stars for customer service The very first thing I try at a Mexican or TexMex restaurant is their nachos offering. Crazy for Nachos. So I ordered their "Chorilocos" and I can say it is one of the best/tastiest. Heaping plate, extra delicious chorizo bits sprinkled all over, topped with pickled jalapenos (interesting taste, I like!) and comes with a side of fresh green and red extra spicy salsa. Will try their other offerings next time. Only slight inconvenience is they only take cash (understandable, but they also do e-transfer) and you must pay first at the front counter. Nice to see the whole family operating the establishment (los padres, abuela, hijo, nieto, etc.).
Some of the best tacos in Toronto. Giving it four stars because of price compared to what you?re getting - $8 per taco; don?t feel like I?m getting my value out of this. Cash only.
A little gem tucked away in a Mexican butcher shop. Absolutely the best tacos I have ever had in Toronto. The taste is authentic and delicious, comparable to those from Tijuana/Mexico I had two years ago. They make all their tortillas in-house. We have ordered seven tacos, all bursting with flavours, and the portions are generous. The thick-cut beef tongue is definitely the star of the show, which is incredibly tender and melts in your mouth. The Pastor with pineapple in it is also excellent. Be aware the restaurant is cash only, and each taco costs $6-$8. It's better to do takeout since the place has limited seating. We have waited 20+ minutes on a Saturday afternoon, so it will be wise to call and place your order beforehand. We will come back to try other items in no time.
Amazing tacos! I didn't ask, but the salsa sure looked (and tasted) like it was home made, perfectly spicy. They double tortillas and everything was incredibly tasty. We ordered pescado, placero and pastor. They also carry Mexican sodas, which make the experience even better:)
