Baseball tacos have moved many places on the island.....we will follow them anywhere! Simple food & incredible salsa bar. I'm so glad they persevere. I'm a lifelong client!

We ate in this small taqueria two nights during our week in Isla. The tacos are great and really cheap. You will need to be able to speak some Spanish as the staff doesn't understand English very well but basic knowledge should be sufficient. Hours are approximately 8p-12a

I don't get all the fuss. It's ok it's cheap. Yes they have tacos. We eat there. It's nothing special. Really. For Isla you can do better and worse.

I said in one other review that once you have tried all the more well-known restaurants on Isla, or if your speed is more off-the-beaten-path, start searching out the hidden gems. Definitely try this place! We had a golf cart and mapchick map, so we found it somewhat easily, but it is tucked away in a colonia.

No, the people there don't speak much English. Yes, they will help if you test your Spanish skills! We all had the pork tacos which were deliciously seasoned. The toppings bar was a hit. Delicious guac. We each had two tacos and left stuffed. And yes the prices are ridiculously low, just over $1/taco.

A hundred percent worth seeking out!!

Tucked away four blocks from Av. El Contoy, in a residential part of La Gloria, sits a quaint little taco shop. A Spanish Soap Opera was on the tiny corner television, and the witty little 4 year old who's parents owned the place, mocked and teased everything the crazy Americans said :) "guacamole please!" "No meat." It was cute and perfect.
Being vegetarian, it was hard to find something on the menu. Everything for the most part was meat. So we opted for a cheese quesadilla with the sides. They included beans, rice and napole, and all were to die for! Flavors abounded and we ate until we were beyond stuffed! It was all very inexpensive as well. I would definitely go back for seconds. Or thirds...
