Sat on their heated patio at -15 outside. Their heaters work well and it’s not like a tent patio, it’s a real patio with heaters and a modified enclosure

Music choice of “corridos”, one after the other became monotonous after a while. No choice offered on level of hotness of the tacos. No sodas available.
Nachos were delicious, but a very small portion for a shareable appetizer. Place has lots of potential but not a good experience overall.

We had a great experience at El Pocho last night. The margaritas were excellent, the food was delicious, the flavours were complex and authentic. The patio was very warm. Highly recommend a visit to this restaurant.

The food was amazing! I just wish they had mix and match option for a person to be able to try more tacos. The Pina Colada was the best but quiet expensive. Overall, the experience was good!

A gem of a low-key hangout. The food is always fresh and delicious and they really understand tacos are all about salt/acid/fat/heat. The cocktail menu is well curated and the twists on old drinks are familiar yet intriguing. We love having El Pocho in the neighbourhood.

This is the best kept secret of the Annex. Fantastic food, and a fabulous heated patio. The staff are amazing, the variety and flavours out of this world, and the drinks menu is worth staying for! For a party meal or snacks and drinks, this is a great place off the beaten track. Highly recommend!

Really delicious tacos! Finding a place that accommodates dietary restrictions (especially a fully gluten free kitchen) is surprisingly hard in Toronto. Very excited to revisit with friends and family!

Everything on the menu is delicious at El Pocho! The apps are perfect for sharing (our faves are the guac & chips, the corn/elotes and the ceviche). The flavours burst in your mouth and with a round of Paloma cocktails, they truly satisfied our "little cravings". All of the gluten-free and vegetarian options are layered with complex flavours but the Tostada de Aguacate is outstanding! Whether you dine in or order takeout, you will not be disappointed and like me, may get regular cravings that only El Pocho can satisfy : )

Best gluten free Mexican ever. Fish tacos are the best! Love that I’m celiac and can always feel safe and never get sick from cross contamination. Cocktails are good!

The food was fantastic. Our server was helpful and lovely; however, she was covering too many tables all at once so even though she tried to check in with us, it was sometimes long between visits. Felt like you needed more servers to help.

Fantastic spot in a great neighbourhood! Tacos are delicious and come in two’s. Wide range of cocktails and well built outdoor patio. Sadly not really accessible with washrooms in basement and steep staircase. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Major bonus, all the food is completely gluten free, celiacs rejoice!

The drinks were fantastic, I recommend their tequila based old fashioned. The food was tasty, especially the pocho fries vegetarianos which our table devoured immediately. The patio had a really good chill vibe. Our server was great, very sweet and helped us navigate the menu. Only complaint was they ran out of churros before we could have any.

Everything was perfect! Food tasted great, the covered patio was spacious, service was friendly and quick. Perfect space for gluten-free diet/Celiac needs. It’s also nice that it’s on a side street so there’s less noise from traffic compared to other patios.

100% gluten free Mexican food. Delicious.
Patio tables are not 6 feet apart, and they seemed understaffed. I would order takeout from them again in a heartbeat.
