Located in a non-descript building, Tacos Por Favor is a very busy, excellent, reasonably priced mexican restaurant. You place your order at the counter and wait for your name to be called. There are so many options and combinations to choose from you will not...More

The place is a simple Mexican joint. Self service, plastic plates, and all. But the food we tried was terrific: their beef quesadillas, fish burritos, and soft shell tacos were all very tasty. We loved their guacamole -- which was fresh and delicious.

Very, very tasty tacos as well as other Mexican standards, including horchata, mole sauce, taquitos, tostadas, and a self-serve salsa bar. Really enjoyed my meal here and didn't break the bank. Don't judge it from the outside - the cooking is pretty legit and while...More

Somewhere, this place is ranked #2 for "The Best Huevos Rancheros" in Santa Monica. I think we missed something, as the food was an good as the curb appeal at this place. The Huevos Rancheros was a sloppy mess - refried beans (not black), runny...More

Loved our food eating here at Taco por favor. We walked back to Santa Monica after our meal. Soles were a treat.

Rough around the edges, cheap, tasty, plentiful. Good salsas. The only disappointment was the veggie taco which was rather unexciting. They do take away and beware they shut around 8pm.

The food is authentic and yum here! We nearly drove by because it looked "dodgy" from the outside... but it is totally not. It is basic inside but you will get a great Mexican feed at a reasonable price!

If you're looking for real Mexican, this is worth the walk from the beach. We had tacos de asada, al pastor, and carnitas. Asada was by far their best. The 2 of us paid $25.55, including a $5 beer, free chips, and a condiment bar...More

We went to the Tacos Por Favor in Venice on Hamilton St. Maybe we are spoiled by good local fare in Seattle but this place failed to impress us foodwise. The tacos were somewhat bland and unexciting. Seemed like typical cheapmex food, nothing special. The...More

I had a California burrito here for breakfast. It was excellent. As a burrito enthusiast, I have to say it was among the better ones I have tasted. The staff is polite and fast. If you want it more spicy, you need to ask for...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
