I’m not a big Mexican food eater, but this place is something else. Not a vast menu but just PERFECT. The vegetarian tacos (mushrooms) is yummy and the chicken tacos are beyond yummy. The quesdilla are a must try and chicken tortas are amazing. The takos are definitely not to miss.

TIP: Do not feel shy when ordering food, because later you’ll realize that you should have ordered more and then its too late. If you want to order more food later you have to go join the queue again, which might take 30-40 mins or more, based on how long the queue is, which most of the time is long. So basically be generous with your order quantities.

This is the mistake we made when we went for lunch. Hence, went for dinner again. Just can’t have enough of it.

Amazing tacos! I am from Southern California and have lived all over the world, and these are some of the first tacos I have had that stand up to the ones from home. They also have a pretty decent selection of Mexican beers and solid margaritas. It's super busy, so get there either early (by Madrid standards, 7:30 for dinner) or be prepared to wait. Great spot!

Of all the pictures we saw before we visited Takos Al Pastor, one saw that there Always was a queue outside the restaurang. And even this time when we visited them, we queued for an hour.

Was it worth the wait? YES, definitely. This restaurang have great food, it's cheap and you get your order incredibly fast.

We order our tacos and after just 10 minutes the food was on our table, you eat fast, then it's time for the next party to sit, this is fast food on steroids.

They have 8 different tacos to order, as we were four in the company, we ordered all 8 times two, as well as some quesadillas. 1€ per tacos, 1,5€for the quesadillas, you can't beat those prices.

Best tacos we had in Madird and I would queue again if I had too.

This place is the best if it want authentic street tacos for a great Price.
Be prepared to wait in a very Long line that moves quickly. We are always on the hunt for a great food in every city we visit.
We had the prickly pear cactus, skirt steak and chicken tacos and they were AMAZING! The Verde and rojo sauce are perfect. This place is so good we went back the next day for more.

Arrived with a few friends right before a huge queue amassed leading out the restaurant. There's a nice range of tacos to choose from all for a Euro each, made instantly and tastes great, they also have a few unique drinks to choose from, quick, easy, tasty and cheap, definitely my kind of place.
