“Most Authentic in SLO”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Taqueria Santa Cruz Express is a welcome addition to San Luis Obispo.
It's strengths include their fresh well prepared variety of salsas, regular burritos,
and soft tacos. The burritos are wrapped well, perhaps too well for someone
desiring to add salsa within. The tacos al pastor are among the best I've had.
For those unable to break away from their Tex-Mex habits, they also
include Cal Poly & 49ers burritos. Most disappointing are the absences of
huevos rancheros and tacos de pescado estilo baja from their menu. Sadly
they only have fish tacos made with tilapia. From the menu the only Mexican
beer offered is Corona. I would have liked others choices such as Modelo,
Bavaria, or Leon Negro.
The eating environment is more conducive to take out though there are
small sit down areas inside where it can get hot or sidewalk seating.
For those with late night food cravings they are open until 11pm.
