We've been here twice and gotten all different types of tacos. They are just excellent. Beef is my favorite, chicken is my sisters and pastor is my boyfriends. All very very tasty.

Great tacos at a cheap price, only wished they opened a little earlier. I sat there waiting for them to open at 7, and they told me it would be another 30 - 45 minutes before they were ready. They also serve great margaritas. Highly recommend!

Tacos de bistec con queso were delicious! I also tried the al pastor tacos with were also great. They serve you all the fixings at the table with about 2 different salsas. Overall I really liked the tacos so I would recommend to eat dinner there.

We were looking for late night grub and Taqueria Medina hit the spot!! Everyone at the table ordered various tacos and we got an order of guacamole to share - nothing disappointed! The plate of guac and chips alone were on another level - so fresh and full of flavor. The tacos were all great, and we sampled everything from... More

Ate at multiple Taquerias around the island. Hands down the best pastor I had. Everything was good. But pastor was the best. Note: They don't open for dinner until 7.

I ate tacos pretty much every for a month in different areas of Mexico and this restaurant had definately one of the best ones. Nothing fancy, good service and great food.
