Great place to go for tacos al pastor. Friendly staff, great tacos, reasonable prices, and a very convenient location. Paid 100 pesos for three tacos, a drink, and a plate of chips with several different salsas. Delicious.

We found La Taquiza through Trip Advisor. It is a small open restaurant that serves tourists and locals. On our first visit we had a great waiter who helped explain some of the offerings on a very large menu. La Taquiza serves chips with 5 salsas and instructions on the heat level for each salsa. I had the Alhambre al... More

My 10 year old and I arrived in Cabo after a 4 hour delay in San Diego. The hotel restaurant was closed so we walked down here. Super friendly staff. My son enjoyed plain flank steak and chicken tacos. I loved those and the del gober ones - shrimp and avocado, very yummy. Super well priced. During the day you... More

For our first meal in Cabo, I wanted tacos. So we ordered 4 different kinds of tacos here. All of them good. Not pictured here was the gobernador taco which was my favorite - shrimp and melty cheese, can't go wrong! Tacos were prepared to order, topped with fresh ingredients. I especially liked the pineapple on top of the al... More

We were looking to go to an authentic Mexican place and were not disappointed. As our waiter Kevin told us it is a cross between a hole in the wall and a restaurant and it was great! If you are looking for fancy don't go here. If you are looking for great mix of sauces with chips and authentic Mexican... More

Martin was an excellent waiter. Every time we ate there we asked him what he would order and we were never disappointed. Our drinks were always full! Great Pina coladas! Next year we are planning on eating here often!

We stop at La Taquiza every time we're in Cabo. Best tacos our whole trip. They bring 6 different salsas to the table from mild to HOT! Crazy cheap to have tacos and beer and margaritas. We love it! Jose took really good care of us. We'll be back.

Acerca del TacoHistoria de La TaquizaAcerca del Taco:El Taco tiene su hogar en Mexico. Forma parte primordial y a nivel mundial es reconocido en nuestra gastronomia mexicana. Tiene sus origenes desde antes de la llegada de los conquistadores y aunque es dificil precisar una fecha, podemos presumir que a la llegada de los conquistadores, estos disfrutaron de la primera Taquiza de la que el Nuevo Mundo tenga memoria.Hoy en dia cada mexicano puede enorgullecerse de haber probado, al menos una vez en su vida el platillo mas versatil, sencillo y delicioso, reconocido como figura principal de una tierra distinguida por su gastronomia. Dado que en Mexico es el corazon de la tortilla de maiz con un consumo promedio diario de 300 gramos por persona, 65 millones de piezas diarias se destinan a la elaboracion de tacos y tostadas. Asi la variedad de los tacos es tan inmensa hasta en cada uno de los estados de nuestra Republica Mexicana con sus sabores particulares y representativos de la entidad. El taco, no solo fue un elemento de la dieta diaria de gobernantes y plebeyos, es un legado de alimentacion prehispanica que ha permanecido hasta nuestros dias y que no solo es de gran valor en la dieta del mexicano sino que asombra y agrada a paladares extranjeros.
