This place is tiny and super busy! The locals park in the parking lot and eat in their car because inside the restaurant only about 10 people could be there at once.

The advantage is that I think is like 24/7 tacos... Disadvantage not good meet quality, not clean and full. If you have hundred of drinks you will feel this is heaven, but sober is a big disappointment. It is good to tell that people is very helpful

I've been a client at El Borrego Viudo for at least 18 years, and i keep coming back, One of the best places for "Tacos de cabeza" and the "Pastores" are not bad at all... The salsas are extremely hot, so you should try them with caution. They're even better if you had some drinks before... jeje

Really I have no idea of what am I eating here... The quality is awful and the flavor even worst, you must use tons of salsa to cover the bad meat... Sorry, but true

If it is 5 am and you want tacos this is a suggested place by many locals. However, tacos are not that good.

If you want the best street tacos this is the place to be. Service is good and wait times are short. I have yet to taste better pastor tacos. This is a great place to end your night.
