The original El Taco De Mexico helped give birth to Baja Fresh. Back in the day the dining experience was similar. My wife and I decided to get some Mexican food and wanted to try that dining experience. Being that this restaurant has been around for a while we figured it would be good. The first strike against this restaurant... More

This small restaurant is perfect for authentic Mexican food. We love the machaca for breakfast. The place is small and they treat you like you're at home. It's a great value for the money even though it's not fancy it's one of my favourites.

Well.....Wanted to try someplace new for lunch...so I looked in my Entertainment coupon book & found El Taco De Mexico. It was a little hard to find a parking spot as their tiny parking lot in the back was full & with a full size pick-up was a little hard to turn around to get out.. Finally parked next door... More

Was in Simi Valley a couple of weeks ago and ate here twice for dinner. Love it! Love the street tacos and buckets of beer. Super friendly owner and staff. Cool, authentic atmosphere. My only suggestion is, don't change a thing! I will be back in October. Can't wait.

The restaurant has the best Machaco breakfast I've ever had. It's a family run business and you feel right at home. No pretence, just great food served by Adam with a smile. Excellent value for your money. I go every time I'm in town.

We love this place. We had dinner here last night and it was great. A basket of chips and a bowl of green salsa is brought to the table as soon as you sit down. We ordered a bucket of beer that comes with 6 bottles, but you only pay for the bottles you drink. The waiter was very helpful... More

For as long as I have been in Simi Valley 21 years I have always enjoyed El Taco de Mexico, it's always consistent. The burritos are on the large size and very good. You can dine in they have three different sections to eat, one being outside, the next just inside the front door and the last one in the... More
