Looking for a quick taco for dinner found this old style taco restaurant. Not the best taco we've ever had and only basics on the menu. Basic eat in space more of a to go place. Ground beef taco's only as no shredded beef or chicken.

My wife worked at the (no longer there) San Gabriel Taco Lita when she was a teenager. We've been hooked every since. When in the area we just have to take home a jumbo burrito for dinner, it's the best. A bit pricey but worth every bite. Nothing like it around.

Only one Taco Lita left. The burritos are big enough to satisfy a big appetite. I recommend the combo burrito! Reminds me of a place we went when we were kids. Nothing fancy, but I enjoy eating there. I take the grandkids and they love the bean and cheese burritos. The secret...the sauce....man is the sauce good.

This is a sentimental favorite for Arcadia High alumni. What makes the taco's are the freshest lettuce and cheese that complements the meat and shell. I do agree its expensive for what you get but its popular enough that patrons will pay the price.

Taco Lita is a trip back in time when the little neighborhood restaurant/food stand served a small menu and stuck with what worked. I just visited after being out of own for a few years and it is rock solid the same. Small menu with ground beef tacos, burritos and tostadas. Fresh ingredients and quick service. You are likely to... More

A local favorite growing up. My family loves Taco Lita although I understand people not caring for Taco Lita. The jumbo burritos are huge and my personal favorite. They have ground beef, refried beans, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes - all fresh quality. I load every bite with their sauce.

This fast food restaurant is an upgraded Taco Bell. The burritos taste much better than other wanna be Mexican fast food joints. The taco sauce is very popular and it has a very good flavor. You can't miss this place with it's bright orange tile interior.

Been there forever and will be there forever. Too many devotees to happen otherwise. Even has a Facebook page. Is it the best burrito ever? No, but it's the best for a memory of everyone in the family to go to. My daughter came in from China and this is one of the first places she had to go to...

Been coming here since junior high school and that was awhile ago! Same food. Just as good and tasty as ever. As others have said, this is not traditional Mexican food, but more Americanized tacos and burritos and boy are they good and filling. The sauce is to write home from college for...
