Needing some take out Mexican food, near our hotel (Radisson USC), we went to La Taquiza. The whole area was swarming with USC students. Always a good sign. La Taquiza is take out or eat in. The food was plentiful, tasty and affordable. The man at the counter was courteous and helpful. We ordered two burritos (fajitas & al pastor)... More

C+ food is overshadowed by unbelievably rude unpleasant guy at register. Whatever you do, don't ask for a receipt. I politely explained that I was traveling on business and needed a receipt for reimbursement. He was nasty and unnecessarily rude - claimed it had been thrown out in the few minutes between when I ordered and went to the restroom.... More

Got there right before closing. They were more than happy to feed me. Inexpensive and good always brings a smile to my face.

Nice to inform you that great Latin American food is made. Not that fast paced, made in a hurry. I've been coming to this place for years and it just better every time.

Very popular small informal Mexican restaurant specializing in fish preparations of traditional fare. Tortillas are home made and portions were generous. The flavors were fresh and the food was healthy and not greasy. Service is counter style and there is no alcohol. Very delicious and economical.

Love this place. Hole in the wall and you would pass by 100 times. Freshest ingredients and a hometown favorite! Literally cut the meat of the spindle. Love it!

This place is absolutely amazing! I'm getting hungry just thinking about their shrimp mulitas! They have great rice, and an awesome salsa bar. The only gripe I have with this place is that they tend to close early without warning. So, unless you live in the area, call ahead if you're planning on going for dinner.

Combination plates are actually good tasting and value for money. Located near USC the mulitas made with al pastor are very good.
