We were missing tacos from home. The meat was tasty (carnitas was the best. we also got carne asada and pastor). The chips and guacamole were decent too. They give you three salsas-- all were fine, though none hot enough for us. The biggest problem was the tortillas. We got corn. They are supposedly made in house--so we were expecting fresh, soft corn tortillas. These were reheated for our dish--and if you have ever done this, you know it can happen! --they were tough. Hard to bite through. (not like when fried as a tostada). So-- I would try it again, but the tortillas should shine, and they didn't. We did not try the flour tortillas, so no feedback on those.... Fun decor. A few seats outside on the sidewalk too.

Pros:
1. Good value for money
2. Tasty tasty tacos!

Cons:
1. When I was there, there were renovations being done and not so sure if the sawdust makes the food any better.

This place is awesome, the micheladas are great,the quesadillas and the guacamole delicious and the atmosphere is super friendly! Great place to have a quick bite and have a couple of beers. My only complaint is the service, the staff is super friendly but they take a long time to bring your food, so be sure to be ready to be patient.

I ordered the chicken burrito - it had too much cheese and lacked spices and fresh vegetables. But the guacamole is fantastic...

Fine, there is no good Mexican food in Buenos Aires, but that doesn't mean you have to come here. Better to have no tacos than bad tacos. I've been to various locations of Fabrica del Taco and they've always been terrible. This last time the service was terrible even for Buenos Aires: sat for 40 minutes without menus while watching other waiters standing around (who weren't OUR waiters, so heaver forbid they do anything to help us), orders were forgotten by either the kitchen or the server, and half the menu was unavailable. The food was cold and bland. Just don't bother.
