Locals swear that this is the best taco restaurant in Vancouver right now. The food is well prepared, the service is quick and the price is right. Super Veggie Taco with Cheese is a good portion of veggies and two are a filling meal. Pastor Taco (marinated lamb with pineapple) is tasty and Cochinita is a spicy pork. four tacos... More

The place is busy and there was a small line ahead of us to place our order. We had tacos and a beef with cheese burrito. We only waited five minutes and our order arrived. They have seven salsas ranging for mild to cry hot. I enjoyed the doable which was very hot but delicious. The tacos were excellent and... More

You know it's gotta be good! Sunday night. Pouring buckets of rain. Cold, wind blowing; a truly miserable night. Yet when you arrive at Sal Y Limon, it's packed! With a line at the cash of people waiting to order. It's really good food done well and for a good price. Sorry, can't really comment on all the dishes because... More

Fast is the word. Lines every day for this taco place, but don't expect to wait long. Service is really quick. And food is amazing. Simple decor. Authentic recipes. Multiple choice of salsas. Many gluten free and vege options. As a coeliac person, i can't tell you how much a little place like this makes my day.

The restaurant has expanded since I last ate here with much more seating and a great casual atmosphere. The serve a variety of tacos, burritos, sopes, taquitos, etc. I especially like the tacos which are inexpensive and small enough that you can order 3 or 4 all done differently for variety. I ordered 4 cheese tacos, one each with sausage,... More

I liked the restaurant itself. The music and the art were authentic. The staff kept it very clean, always wiping the tables quickly. I found the food to be lacking a bit of flavour (salt). I tried the burrito and four different tacos. The sauces were a nice touch. Everything was fresh and good sized portions.

A basic design mexican place in a small strip mall. Food was good. Get the Sal y Limon burrito. Churros were good, just like they're meant to be. Parking is terrible. Get a seat at the window and watch Vancouverites do 9-point turns to try and waltz their cars around each other as more cars pile in behind them.

The mini tacos were delist, but the nacho chips lacked salt. I prefer warm nacho chips. The salsa had some nice kick to it. Cool casual place.
