I had heard great things about Bien Trucha and I'm so thankful that my schedule finally allowed us to visit! The specialty margaritas are amazing! Our group of four shared four plates of Street Tacos, an appetizer of Guacamole, and a side of Esquites. The restaurant is spendy ...it's also very small and very loud, but it is worth the... More

This is by far my favorite place to get tacos!!! I have adored every dish I've ever ordered here. Even though it is a bit of a drive from where I live, I have no problem going out of my way to eat here. Warning, a line can form out the door before it opens so be there early or... More

Was a pleasant surprise of really good food. Didn't look very appealing but excellent taste and flavor. Glad a buddy sent me here you won't be disappointed.

This was my first time here with my husband and friends and it was amazing! To start the ambiance is great as well as the wait staff. The drinks were good! I had a sangria with bourbon in it and the others had margaritas. We shared an assortment of delicious tacos and tried a yummy shrimp and cheese dish. I... More

Yes, this was the place with looong lines that start forming 30 Minutes before they open. This has eased up a bit because they now occupy two buildings but the food is still delicious. My personal taco favorites are the slow roasted pork belly and the beer battered tilapia. My ultimate "must have" is the Esquites. Order the esquites!!!!! They... More

It's very crowded inside. Get there early cause there's usually a line. They do take a few reservation. Best taco is the bien trucha with beef. It's most fun if you all share so you can try different things. My daughter lived in SF & this is her favorite Mexican restaurant

We ate here for lunch yesterday while shopping. We were seated inside due to recent rains. Outdoor dining area is absolutely beautiful!!! Indoor Seating is very tight to other tables so be prepared to be "cozy". We ordered the guacamole which was fantastic! I also ordered a mojito which was delicious!!!! In our party of three, we ordered something different... More

Decided to try this as it is the number one rated place on trip advisor. Went on a Tuesday and they had a waiting list. Sat at bar. Staff was very attentive and helped me with my choices. Had the pomegranate guacamole and the pork belly tacos. Both were outstanding. Large selection of tequila with knowledgeable bartenders. I hope someday... More

A tiny gem of Geneva. Everything is delicious. Especially chips and guac and rice and corn!! Margaritas are not strong. Tiny tables so your visit is very quaint 😬. Outside seating is the best.
