Wow- huge portions, you should see the size of their super burrito,the largest I've seen of many taquerias.Looking at other peoples plates, they also looked delicious. The rest. is very small ,the service is very fast and the salsa bar is delicious.

We have stopped in the Taqueria la Mordida several times, trying different menu items each time. Quite an extensive menu with meat and fish and chicken choices. The place is always clean, everyone is friendly and the service is quick.
