The Tijuana Taqueria opened about 15 years ago as a small kitchen with a couple of tables against the wall outside. Miguel and his family worked hard to serve consistently wonderful, reasonably priced Mexican food. The tiny kitchen grew into a restaurant with a salsa bar and real tables inside. When the space next to the restaurant opened up, the... More

This place has changed hands several times in the last 10 years, they menu is more limited now, so no lengua, the food is good, not dirt cheap but reasonable, generous portions, and the salsa bar is very good. Very friendly people.

Left our motel looking for a nearby place to eat. Found this one, simple looking, but the food was good, and reasonable prices.

Service was great, fast and friendly and the food was good. My burrito was HUGE, the biggest I have ever seen, but it lacked a bit of flavor. There is a nice chips and salsa bar.

Great Mexican food in true "hole in the wall" location. You have to search this place out but will be well rewarded. Carnitas are fantastic, carne asada is excellent. Chicken burrito was our favorite.

Food was OK. You order at the counter and pay, then they bring the food to you when it's ready. No Margaritas, just beer.

ok it is not is classy part of Placerville. It is way off the main street. Some people think it is not even a part of Placerville. But the food is the reason to go. We always get the Carnita's ... they sell it by the pound. Not the dinner. A half pound with none of the side dishes is... More

A no frills mexican restaurant that serves authentic mexican fare. Generaous portions and well prepared food. The room is on the smallish size yet tables seem to be spaced well enough apart to minimize noise and bumping neighbors. Fast and very friendly service. A place to visit if you are up for border style ambience (little to none), but fresh,well... More

The food is great and there's plenty of it! Your typical local hole in the wall joint that sells good food. We try to come every few months.
