Mexican Churros

This is the most delightful combo! I would have never put Nutella and churros together, but it is delicious. The perfect dessert after their incredible entrees.

Al Pastor Fries

Pollo Al Pastor fries are unmatched. I love trying new dishes, and I've never had anything quite like it before. The dish exceeded my expectations due to their savory, spit-roasted chicken, crispy fries, along with the array of delicious, vibrant avocado sauces and fresh pico. The amount of quality ingredients you get for the price is exceptional. My only criticism is that it needed a bit more shredded cheese. Aside from that, customer service was on point, and when we picked up our to-go order, it was hot and fresh! I will be back.

The carne asada tacos here are soooo moist and taste so authentic. I'm so glad that there's finally a good mexican restaurant in Irvine.

Al Pastor Taco

I live for tacos and these are the best tacos in Irvine by far. I drive to Tijuana just to get tacos, taquiero is truly authentic. They cook the meat on a traditional trompo which to me is the only way al pastor should be cooked. And the salsa are packed with flavor. The aguas frescas are fresh and perfect.

Carne Asada Mulita

It's my favorite along side a fresh cup of horchata! But wait, then there's the Salsa Macha, hands down my favorite salsa. This combo is the best, then when you leave, you get a Pulparindo!

Al Pastor Quesadilla

How can I pick just one favorite item? I've never been disappointed here! Carne asada, pollo pastor and traditional pastor are great no matter how you order but the secret is the keto tacos!!! I can't get enough of this place and I drive 40 miles AT LEAST once a month to get my fix. I can't wait for Covid to be over so I can enjoy adding the serve yourself salsas and sides again. The fries are perfectly crispy, the churro bites are tasty, and the drinks are perfection. The owner is there often and makes the best recommendations, some being off menu, so if you don't know what to get (even though everything is mouth-watering perfection) you can always trust him. Also the environment can't be beat!

Al Pastor Fries

Loaded fries are everywhere but the consistency and seasoning of the fries here are unmatched. This is true comfort food and I can't recommend this place enough

Al Pastor Fries

You have the best fries in Irvine, maybe even all of Cali! I lived abroad in Australia for a while and one of the things I got hooked on was their fries. Not till Taquiero Arrived on my block did I find happiness in handmade tortillas, spicy yummy tacos and fries that blew my mind! Love you Taquiero por siempre!! Toni

Carne Asada Fries

Honestly think this is the best thing on the menu besides maybe the tacos. The value is good, the fries are good, its just good. I haven't ordered the Al Pastor but I would vouch for those as well.

Cochinita Pibil Taco

It's really hard to just choose one item as my favorite because really everything I've tried has been amazing!!! My top favorite would have to be anything with cochinita pibil... and I especially love their fresh salsa bar...amazing. They also make their corn tortillas fresh in house which is so awesome.

These Al Pastor Fries are a whole meal itself. The portion is big, the fries are crispy, and the al pastor is crispy and has great flavor. Great salsa selection. This place is as authentic as it gets.

Carne Asada Taco

El taco de asada es una delicia que la tortilla está hecha a mano, la cocción de la carne está perfecta, la salsa picante y jugosa. Es un taco mexicano, es una nostalgia que me recuerda los viejos tiempos en México. Es una taco Taquiero.

Al Pastor Taco

So I live all the way in Lake Elsinore and whenever I'm craving some tacos I drive all the way out here to get some tacos because they're just that bomb. Their tacos are seriously worth the drive. I definitely recommend you give this place a try, their food is so good.

Omg , tried the family meal yesterday! My drive from ladera to Irvine was so worth it: the meat was succulent and prepared to perfection , the sauces were amazing, the sides were abundant and yummy! If you are not in the mood to create your own taco night, this is the go to place. The meal says for 3-4, but we have plenty of leftovers and will make a dinner salad tonight with all this yumminess. Great service , impeccable food, absolutely will come again!
