A delightful discovery. Tasty tacos and plenty more on the menu to guarantee return trips when we're in the neighborhood. My wife's two fish tacos were quite large. My three marinated meat tacos -- two al pastor (pork) and one asada (steak) -- were dandy and well priced, though the amount of meat was a bit on the smallish side. The homemade horchata, especially at just $1.50 a glass, was the perfect accompaniment.

Upon arrival the decoration felt very authentic. Immediately I thought food would be good. Ordered fish tacos, tacos al pastor, a burrito, and gringas. Honestly there was absolutely no flavor whatsoever. You have to drench your food in sauce to make it taste like something. Food was also very inconsistent. We ordered the tacos in different orders and some were lacking cheese while the others had plenty. Will not return.

I was on the prowl for a good Fish Taco like Wahoo's out west this last month and was disappointed with Yabo's tidbits and the new Moe's who doesn't have them anyway. It didn't dawn on me to go to Los Guacho's because I have so many quickie favorites for under $7 like the Carne Asada (beef) Torta's that are bigger than your head. The #6 or "El Favorito" El Pastora (pork flamed and marinated on a verticle spicket -- like gyro lamb, but real meat and is to die for. I think the secret ingredient is mango and/or pineapple. Yesterday, I had Fish Tacos and Chorizo Tacos that were tremendous Get extra green (Verde) sauce for your morning ommlette. Stay away from the red (Ro Ho) sauce or you'll cry like you were tear gassed and will be gauranteed to walk funny in the morning. No alcohol. Just eclectic, 3rd world soda. Totally authentic. Surprisingly large menu with fast service... This is the best, value-for-the dollar in town. It's more of a Takey Outy (Taco Rita) than a resteraunt per se (6 tables), like Cuco's on Henderson which is a close second: 3rd Garcia's on High, 4th Chile Verde on Sawmill, 5th El Vavcaro on Trabue, 6th Las Maragrita's on Frantz....

I'm not an expert on Mexican food, but I thought the options looked authentic and were very reasonably priced at $2 or less for most of the taco options. It's cafeteria style, but the tables are heavy, carved wood, which adds to the atmosphere. I found the El Pastor taco a bit underseasoned, but the fish tacos were outstanding. I had four tacos, a side salad and a Mexican soft drink, and the bill was less than $14. What a nice change from the suburbanized options in the west part of the city where my hotel was located!
