La Taquiza is authentic Mexican at its finest! Tortas and Burrito's are my family's favorites -- fresh ingredients, generous portions at a fair price. The interior is authentic South-of-the-Border decor!!

Delicious, well prepared tacos. Mediocre tamales....not enough filling, too much dough. Very friendly counter staff. Clean. It was crowded at lunch time, so going at 11:30 or after 1 pm is probably a good idea.

Very good authentic Mexican, family run. Very small, but we went a little early and were able to eat in. Food was very good. The Taco Tuesday is very popular
