El Tarasco was a 10 minute walk from the Marriott in Marina del Rey and maybe 5 minutes from the Venice pier. The food was prepared and served hot and ready to take away in 10 mins. The carnitas and chicken tacos were delicious and...More

Low key, not fancy, but very tasty food and a great value in an otherwise overpriced area. Burritos, tacos, enchiladas all good. Sauces are excellent. Mexican beers by the bottle. Sometimes crowded but always someplace to sit in or outside. Mostly locals, friendly staff, great...More

Welcoming staff and very clean. Meals looked delicious as I saw them coming out for other diners. Take Away meals seem very popular here too. I enjoyed my Cheviche Cameron, but I was expecting to see the shrimps to look like shrimps. They were chopped...More

So glad we stopped at this place while walking around the area. The food was amazing, so fresh and flavorful! Tried their Margarita which did not have any tequila in it (some sort of wine), and it was very good, interesting combination! If you love...More

This place has slowly deteriorated over the years. I had some food yesterday that had the 'tostada' portion thrown separately as tortilla (small) shells into a the brown takeout bag - no cover, no nothing. The soft taco looked like it was wrapped in a...More

It's not gourmet food, but the fish tacos are excellent and inexpensive. The shrimp dishes are also good. Nice predictable good Mexican food.

Mexican dishes. Plain but good fare. Carne asade (grilled steak, chopped) was good and comes with choice of flour or corn tortillas, rice and beans. Others tried enchiladas, tacos, etc... Enjoyable.

El Tarasco used to be great. It is now just good. If you are in Venice and planning a walk on the Pier or on the boardwalk, stop at El Tarasco for a fast bite. The tacos are good. The service is not great and...More

It's a small place but with big flavour and service. The meals were huge as were the drinks and the service was with a smile. Great value for money

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
