This is about as hole in the wall as you can get. Food is good but beware of getting in and out. It is tricky. I Can’t say that this is my favorite Mexican spot but it is not terrible. Three burritos and chips were...More

I find El Taco Veloz completely unavoidable when I want something to eat that's quick, under ten bucks and just outright tasty. I generally order a burrito (around $5) or tacos (around $2 each), for which "with everything" means adding just onion and cilantro, as...More
