This is not a place ones goes for atmosphere, but to chow down, or walk away with the the goods. I am a vegetarian, so I cannot speak for everything offered. BUT, my $2.50 taco was a meal and a half. The only thing I missed was the array of goodies of a salsa bar. One is given a container... More

Even though awarded Best of SLO, the street tacos here are just on the good side of average. A simple and enjoyable place, but go with expectations in check.

Learned about this place from trip adviser, thanks!! My husband and I had the chorizo and egg combo plate and we're not disappointed, the portions are very generous, probably enough to share. Don't expect any frills, but, the food was great!,

The camp host at the Morro Bay State Park told us to try this place. Probably would have walked right by it if he didn't say something. A steady stream of customers came through to get their Mexicn food fix, and we were glad that we tried it.

The title of my review says it all. I have been blessed to travel to different countries around the world, and Taco de Mexico is my favorite restaurant, ever. The building is beautifully painted on the outside, and on the inside it's a quaint hole in the wall-type setting. There is ALWAYS a line out the door of locals, all... More

This is the real thing. Some days the line is out the door. You order at the counter, no wait service but worth it for the real thing.
