El Farolito Jr. is casual style dining, traditional Mexican food. I recommend the Machaca . They also have burritos, small "Street " tacos. Food here is very delicious and inexpensive. The wait staff is friendly and you will leave feeling satisfied.

Close to Fullerton Inn. Food was very delicious. All authentic. Tacos made right in front of you on grill. Our waitress was fabulous. Agua Frescas available. We had group of 10, most had tacos all delicious. I had shrimp and steak burrito, jam packed with steak, shrimp, beans and rice. In an area known for great Mexican food, El Farolito... More

Eat here for authentic tastes of Mexico. The tacos are so fabulous, and machacas and rellenos are so delicious. From chips and salsa gratis as you are seated through small dishes or large plates then finishing with oh-so-sweet flan, you will love a restaurant whose patrons speak the language, a true test of an ethnic restaurant. Always eat here once... More

This has been our go-to place for Mexican since they opened a few years ago. We've never had a bad meal. Can be busy and loud on weekends, but always fresh. Service is always friendly. This is not "fancy", but it is authentic. Same family as El Farolito in Placenta.

Food thrown together, not as tasty as food at Placentia location. Understaffed, over priced, cleanliness is an issue, lack of parking, all in all don't come here. Quality of food is poor.

Had a horrible day of travel wanted to grab quick dinner and turn in for the night. Food was so good and can't beat the prices our hostess was a gem. Big portions good salsa, crispy chips and flavorful food. Perfect combo Guarantee you won't be able to eat it all in one sitting.

We had the opportunity to visit for dinner on the way to an event. As we entered the place was hopping. Lot's of folks ordering to eat in and as many to take away/out. We ordered at the counter and they brought us the food. A carne Asada burrito and Pozole. The burrito was great with pico de gallo and... More

Damn these tacos are bomb! These guys stuff the tacos full of meat. So worth it!! I came after reading a lot of good reviews about this, and seeing how it was Tuesday, I was craving tacos. I came in and decided to use my very little knowledge of Spanish and order in Spanish. The menu board did not list... More

Salsa and chips were good. We liked the $1.15 tacos after 5pm. Prices of other menu items were good.
