We went in knowing we wanted tostadas! We tried pibill, it was just as amazing as it was in Cancun. Ahí tuna plate was delicious but a little spicy for my palette. Carnitas tacos were good we got them served on thinly sliced jicama. They...More

A place that we used to have Aguachile closed and I was wondering where we could get it, so I did a Google search and found Tostadas not too far away. Trip Advisor had a small number of excellent reviews, so my wife, daughter, son-in-law,...More

Their tostados and tacos are so good that we both had to buy an extra one! Also their lemonade is perfect!

Same people who own City Tacos in North Park. Very different use of fruits, veggies, and fish for very unique tacos. Highly recommend.

AWESOME food with great service and really sound prices. The Tinga Polla was insane, best thing I ate all weekend. The Tostada Des Pescado was so well priced I can't imagine they won't raise the price soon. Super great value for this place on top...More

We went on a weekend for a late lunch and some drinks. The frozen margaritas were delicious (though not very strong) and the tostadas were delicious. We tried the ceviche, but also loved the slow cooked meats (pork and chicken). everything we had was fresh...More
