Have not been at La Taqueria for a while, and probably won’t be back. Very small portions and bland food. Not bad service, but nothing to rave about. Menu is more like a fast food kind of menu without the fast food prices. There was...More

Tried this place for the first time. It was busy but not overly crowded. Ordering food was confusing. The wrong food came out to us. That same plate was passed around to other tables. It finally was delivered to the right place. Portions are small....More

Ordered some burritos take away from here. Place was definitely busy, atmosphere was good! Unfortunately the food (one chicken, one beef) was a bit bland, lacking some spice or zing. Generous portion sizes.

Whatever you do, you must taste the mole tacos here. It's a taste of true southern Mexico. The El pastor was also good but we ordered another helping of mole because we couldn't get enough. We'll be back next time we visit for sure.

Went early afternoon on a Wednesday and it was very empty. There was a deal of 6 tacos for the price of 4. Delicious tacos, service was nice and the location was super cool and clean!

Heard a lot about this little place, so we checked it out. It is a very small place with a bit of a hipster layout, that can get very crowded during the busy times. They do a very good takeout business it appears and the...More

We make our tacos from traditional recipes with local, organic and sustainable products, when possible. Our menu offers different types of fillings which can be served as a Taco (soft tortilla, made locally & homemade style) or as a Quesadilla. La Taqueria was born in 2009, through the idea of creating a taco stand, which resemble the taste and feel of street tacos around Mexico. These tacos are usually the best, a real Mexican tradition.
