B.S. Taqueria demonstrates elements of long-established tradition, paired with contemporary approaches, and local flavors. The fare is authentically inauthentic, representing a city of migrant-rich flavors through the lens of a native. The Taqueria provides the ideal backdrop for chef Ray Garcia’s rift on convention, a casual, counter service environment for lunch, and bustling full service dinner. Sides, such as the Lemon-Pepper Chicken Chicharrones and "Rice and Beans" are perfect to share with the group, but the headliner remains the taco. House favorites include the chorizo and papas and the clams and lardo.

    As always, BS Taqueria did not disappoint. The chicken chicharrones are nothing short of amazing. Love that BS Taqueria takes an inventive approach to classic and humble Mexican food. The "Rice and Beans" blew my mind, nothing like what you would expect, and again delicious. And those amazing churros...don't know how they make them so fluffy, melt in your mouth amazing...but I would come back just for those churros!!!!

    Great tacos, especially the mushroom/garlic tacos! Beans and rice are really different and good! Margarita Paloma is yummy! The mole fries were an interesting change and the guacamole was really, really good! Will be going back and have already told others about it! We even got there late due to traffic and they were accommodating and the service was great!

    Delicious food--great options for vegetarians, too. Some of the drinks are absolutely fantastic, and the Happy Hour is terrific! The food is inventive, but not fussy or weird. I love really spicy food, but not everyone does, so it is worth noting that even I thought the food was pretty darn hot & spicy....but not to the point of interfering with the flavors. I've been a few times, and will keep coming back.

    This was one of those meals that you think about days after and a smile appears on your face. We started with the guacamole, and I had no idea something as simple as guac could be THIS GOOD. The spice was on point, a dusting of cotija and cilantro built upon the flavors, and we found ourselves trying to lick the bowl. THEN came the fish tacos. I've never had an authentic fish taco until dining here and I'm certain there's no way another will ever compare. The tortilla had just the right amount of chew, the fish was piping hot and crispy, just out of the fryer, and the slaw added the perfect crunch to an unforgettable few bites. I'm eager to try more here, but it'll be hard not to just order fish tacos and guacamole after loving them so damn much.

    We went to Bs Taqueria with my parents wanting to try a good example of Alta California food. The food and service was fantastic but I really want to give a shout out to the host managing the schedule. I'd specifically reserved for 6:45PM and somehow completely misremembered the reservation as being for 8:00PM. I called literally five minutes after our reservation and explained it was completely my fault and they could give our table away if needed. Instead, the host very kindly asked if we still could make it and then scheduled us for that time later in the evening. I know that missing or ditching reservations is a nightmare in the industry so his accommodation for my mistake was really above and beyond.

    The food was very spicy. The waitress warned that The guacamole was spicy and said it was premade and unable to adjust the spice level. I was very disappointed that the food could not be made fresh to adjust the spiciness. Rice and beans would have been delicious but too spicy. Ruined the dining experience

    I was in town on business and wanted a good local spot to dine solo. B S Taqueria served this up with delicious ceviche and tacos. My only complaint was the overly heavy garlic that haunted this garlic-lover all night.

    Our favorite dishes were the Corn and Churros. This place is a tight squeeze, but the makeshift patio in the back was charming. Our server was good at providing us recommendations and checking up on us. However, our food orders didn’t come out on a timely manner. We had to remind our server that we’re still waiting on this or that...but she was very responsive and was able to address those issues promptly. Other than that our experience was good.

    Great ambiance! The blue masa used for the tacos was very thick, too thick. It really distracted from the flavor of the taco fillings. The guacamole was amazing & the street corn is a must order! Overall a solid 4 out of 5.

    Food was delicious! We had dinner there recently. I had the Squash Enchiladas (fantastic!) and my friend had two tacos. The margaritas were very good -- classic and well balanced. We shared the churros for dessert (big enough for 2-4 depending on your portion) and they were melt-in-your-mouth delicious, served with a little pot of chocolate. It's a bit noisy and not fancy, but fun. Prices are reasonable. Would definitely go again.

    One of the worst restaurants i have ever eaten at. The food was terrible. Tried a salad and that was really bad. I am not sure why this restaurants gets 4 stars. I will never ever go back. It is apparent that the people who have rated this restaurant so high does not require much from a restaurant.

    Great beer list and appetizers. Had the guacamole to die for with chips. It is a busy place, so you have to make sure you get the waiter’s attention when you are ordering additional beverages. The food was fresh and tasty. Our out-of -state friend was particularly impressed with the menu and choices and he is not new to travel in this area. My husband had the carnitas and fish tacos. My friend had the chorizo burger, and I had the ceviche. We shared the grilled corn and the beans and rice. Even the sides were really good. Going back to eat more...

    These were some of the best tacos our group has ever had! We got every single one on the menu! There is some kick in just about everything so be careful if you are not into spicy food. We cannot wait to come back and eat more tacos and guacamole! We also loved their mole fries and bean dip.

    Delicious but SPICY - be forewarned. Almost everything on the menu has some degree of spice, so if you don't like spicy food, don't go (this is the only reason why I don't give 5 stars for the food). Food was organic and creative. Maybe if you ask they can lessen the level of "hot"...

    I was in LA to see Phila Eagles play the LA Rams. Went to the restaurant because conveniently located near my hotel and the prices were very decent for the food we got. Arrived in time for Happy Hour and shared a picher of Margaritas with my son. They were very good and fairly priced at $24. The tacos were also good but all you got was one small taco (just $2) so you're going to need to eat quite a few depending on how hungry you are. Also had a Chorizo Cheeseburger and it was very tasty but a bit greasy (for my taste) but very faitly priced at $8 on the Happy hour menu. Overall a very good value for the price.

    Really wanted to love this place but everything was SO SPICY. Let me preface that I LOVE spicy food and have a high tolerance for heat. Everything, even the beans and rice was way way too hot. And the flavors uniform. There could have been such yummy food but my mom didn't go numb. Everyone at our table had the same reaction and we left with numb tongues. Maybe the line cook was a little heavy handed with the cayenne the other night. Will be back to see if its a fluke.
