This was our favorite taqueria by far. Now closed due to re-model of center Hope it comes back. We love their salsa, and veggie choices are available. Also fish tacos, tortas and dinner plates Burritos are my favorite

Sofia's -- hard to find. You've got to want to get there, tucked way back in a lower corner of the Rancho Del Mar Shopping Center in Aptos. But THE FOOD: A very close second to my mom's. Honestly, it's THAT good and, obviously, I...More

Since I am local, this is a decent little hole in the wall, but....terrible margaritas. Tamales so-so. When craving a quick Mex food dish, this sometimes works---sometimes, not always....

As a taqueria, it has great authentic taste. We went on Wednesday night and had a wide range of their regular plates. Portions were enough for a "left overs" meal. The little flags decor, mexican tile tables, and banda music make it the full experience....More

The carnitas super taco is a monster. I usually have room for an enchilada or a temale. Free chips and great fresh salsa.
