I’m from the Western US, living in Germany for the past two years. Mexican food has been a staple cuisine for my entire life, and the lives of my kids. We’ve tried everything available to us in Bavaria and have been disappointed every single time. We’ve sought out Mexican offerings in Hungary, France, Austria, and Spain. The ingredients are wrong, the preparation incorrect, the seasonings totally off. When we found ourselves in Freiburg at dinnertime and came across Yepa Yepa on Yelp, we figured we might as well give it a try, with very low expectations. We were so surprised!
First of all, great, patient service. Second, totally reasonable prices. Third, excellent food. It’s simple, but it’s GOOD. The way elevated street tacos are supposed to taste. We ordered at least one of everything on the menu, plus the specials, and it was all fantastic. Best of all, the ingredients were spot-on. No kidney beans, sweet ketchup-like salsa, or German corn in sight! (Really, their idea of Mexican in this country is a travesty.)
When I asked my kids what the favorite part of our weekend in the Black Forest was, our foodie-10 year old quickly said, “the tacos.”
Enough said.

Perhaps you've been in Germany for a while. Perhaps you even live in Germany? And perhaps you are from an area of the world where Mexican food (let's forget regional variations) is omnipresent? And now you are craving Mexican food...

Well, chances are that your attempts at having Mexican food in Germany have been an utter failure. I know that we've tried over and over again only to conclude that either Germans have absolutely no clue what Mexican food should taste like, that proprietors in Germany cater to German palates, or that it's a combination of the two. In the end, Mexican food in Germany sucks. And it sucks big.

That said, Yepa Yepa does NOT suck! It's excellent. In our neck of the woods, small taco stands abound and many basically follow the same set-up as Yepa Yepa: They offer a limited number of simple dishes - pork, steak, ground beef, chicken, or veggies topped with a variety of add-ons such as pico gallo. Same here (minus the ground beef).

The results are very comparable to anything you would find (and like) in many parts of the US and certain areas of Mexico.

We were delighted and would come back in a heartbeat - no question about it.

Awesome and great spot next to the Fahnenbergplatz. If you don’t know where it is, you probably pass it.
The food was awesome and delicious, the style a mixture of new industrial design and Mexican decorations.

Nevertheless we will be back. Thanks for an awesome experience. This is Mexico right here in Baden.

Delicious tacos and friendly staff! We got our food within a matter of minutes, and it was perfect! The gringo beer matches well with the food too.
