They have very good food in general but Taco Tuesday is great! We go every Tuesday we're in town. The carnitas are wonderful and it's hard to go wrong for $1 tacos. Happy hour beer etc. Owner and staff are very friendly.

Apparently, this little gem was a former Taco Bell and it was replaced with authentic and delicious Mexican food. The staff is quite friendly and they even have Mariachis on the weekends (along with the Menudo to go with a nice cold cervesa). Carnitas are...More

Tongue is tasty and so very tender and even more delicious on the thick hand made soft tortillas. Chile relleno was excelent too. Visa card accepted. Ample parking. Take Borchard exit off 101.

On my first visit, yesterday, I had the Steak Burrito and the Chile Relleno. Burrito was average - steak cubes a little over done. BUT the Relleno was the best I have ever eaten. Hence my second visit today. Again, the best - hot to...More

We ended up here for a quick meal post Trick or Treating on Halloween night. Not quite FAST food, but way better! My kids loved it.

Yes, El Sancho Loco is in a former Taco Bell, no liquor, and it sometimes it takes a while for your order to arrive. But, made to order takes time, and great food is worth waiting for. The Chile Rellenos are incredible, the Enbchiladas (especially...More

I think I was overcharged on Saturday. We ordered lunches for workers at our house. We ordered 7 carne asadas, 7 large sodas, and six soft tacos. According to your menu, our bill should have been $86.97. But when we checked the Mastercard charge slip at home, I was shocked to see that we were charged $123.96. My wife, who picked up the order, didn't catch it in time. I want to order again for the workers, but not until I understand what happened. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the menu? El Sancho Loco staff, please advise. Bob, in Newbury Park, a frequent and usually satisfied customer.
