This was like walking into a fast food joint in Mexico. Real food not made in a factory. A variety of choices, but no fish or vegetarian options. TV on the wall in Spanish, and many customers ordered in Spanish. I had a super filling...More

Five of us went to taste the tacos. They have many variations of the theme to choose from - all at very good prices. Beef, chicken, pork, tongue, chorizo, BBQ style, etc. Food is ordered at a counter and prepared in a kitchen area. When...More

We have tried both Taqueria El Churrito locations now and it leaves me unimpressed. It's no substitute for Traditional Taco, which I miss. Both the Edmonton Trail and Kensington locations are clean and colourful, with pleasant service. Our first visit was to the Edmonton Trail...More
