Freshly prepared Mexican street food in a quaint little storefront next to a busy street. You can snag a beer from the fridge while you wait for your food. Dine in or carry out. Yum!

If you want Mexican food that tastes closest to what you get in small city Mexico, and so different than the cheese rich Tex Mex common all over the US, Lalo's is the place. It is a small place with about 6 tables run by a couple from a town north of Mexico City. It has the look and feel of the many eating places in smaller cities in Mexico. The food was delicious and the service family friendly. The sopapilla was light, hot and oh so melt in your mouth wonderful. They even have a supply of very Mexican beverages; try tamaring soda. It is the kind of place you can take your little kids and not worry about them running around or breaking the rules. Not a place if you are in the mood for black tie. But it is a nondescript building so it is easy to miss.

Lalo's may be tiny, but it's serves up the most delicious REAL Mexican food around. The staff are friendly and very attentive. You can tell that the food is freshly prepared for each order. I love their tamales. This is an absolutely must visit restaurant.

If you're looking for a legit authentic Mexican restaurant Lalo's Taqueria is by far the best I've had outside of this little beach joint in Florida. There tacos are small and simple but yet oh so delicious. The Asada and Caritas Taco Especial were great with the fresh avocados, cheese and yes cilantro. The Adobada and Barbacoa were also good but would probably be a little spicy for most. On my next trip I will be trying the Lengua(Tongue) tacos which I've only heard good things about. Be open minded when going and you won't leave disappointed.

Enjoyed our lunch at this taqueria. It has 8 tables and several came in for take out orders. We had the guacamole which was chunks of avocado rather than mashed and jalapeños added for a little heat. We also had a chicken quesadilla and huarache with adobada. The huarache was made with a tortilla that was made to order. All were very good.
