They are amazing tacos and the prices are great!!! They are very busy which goes to show that they are great tacos. The "surtido" taco is the best.

This place is tiny and super busy! The locals park in the parking lot and eat in their car because inside the restaurant only about 10 people could be there at once. They are open 24 hours a day and everyone in there is busting their butt. I ate tacos al pastor and my husband had cheek. I loved it,... More

I've been a client at El Borrego Viudo for at least 18 years, and i keep coming back, One of the best places for "Tacos de cabeza" and the "Pastores" are not bad at all... The salsas are extremely hot, so you should try them with caution. They're even better if you had some drinks before... jeje

Really I have no idea of what am I eating here... The quality is awful and the flavor even worst, you must use tons of salsa to cover the bad meat... Sorry, but true
