Delicious, well prepared tacos. Mediocre tamales....not enough filling, too much dough. Very friendly counter staff. Clean.
It was crowded at lunch time, so going at 11:30 or after 1 pm is probably a good idea.

The place isn't much to look at but once you taste the tacos you know you came to the right place. I had the skirt steak taco which was terrific.My wife had the two different chicken tacos . They were both excellent but a warning - the Tinga taco was above average spicy. We had a side of above guacamole. The price is right. Four (4) good size tacos, with extra toppings (cheese, sour cream) and a side of guacamole for $16.00.

Very good authentic Mexican, family run. Very small, but we went a little early and were able to eat in. Food was very good. The Taco Tuesday is very popular

La Taquíza is a homey, family-run fast food restaurant that serves some of the best tacos, tortas (Mexican sandwiches served on a wonderful fresh roll) and burritos in the area. There are several choices of fillings for these items: steak, chicken, "bomba" (a combination of pork and pineapples with Mexican seasonings) and tinga (shredded chicken sautéed in onions and chipotle chiles). I've tried all four and will have a tough time choosing among them on my next visit - that's how good they are. Tamales are also available but I haven't tried them yet. Interestingly, according to the sign on the counter, they make them with olive oil instead of lard. The three tamale choices are chicken with green sauce, chicken with red sauce and rajas with cheese. (Rajas are roasted, shredded poblano chiles).

Not only is the food terrific, but the prices are amazingly low. Today I had the torta, a huge sandwich that's probably big enough for two people. Price: $5.00. Add a dollar for a soft drink and it came in at under $7.00, including tax.

They're open Mon - Sat from 10:00 A.M to 8:00 P.M.
