Wir sind eine Taqueria - was eine Pizzeria zu Pizza ist, sind wir zu Tacos – die wohl allerklassischste Speise Mexikos... Das Konzept ist sehr simple. Unsere Menükarte besteht aus alles was man in einer Taqueria in Mexiko oder in Südkalifornien finden würde: Tacos, Taquitos, Burritos, Quesadillas, aber auch Suppe, Salat und ein paar lässige Vorspeisen.

Gutes mexikanisches Essen erfordert gute Zutaten. Wir durchsuchten den Kontinent und fanden schliesslich die besten nixtamalisierte Maistortillas, die wir kaufen konnten. Wir importieren frische Jalapenos. Wir verwenden 100% frische Avocados für unsere Guacamole. Wir machen unsere Aguas Frescas und scharfe Saucen im Hause. Wir frittieren unsere eigenen Tortilla-Chips täglich. Wir haben sogar die grösste Auswahl an importierten mexikanischen Softdrinks und Bieren in der Schweiz! Zudem bieten wir jeden Monat eine mexikanische Spezialität an.

Food was quite good, bur service was terrible. The waiter was forgetful, needed to be told twice to get a margherita. We waited 40 minutes for the dessert, and he was not around all that time, finally when he showed up and I asked about our churros, he told us that the kitchen must have lost our order. When we ask for a check, he dissapeared for next 30 minutes, apparently he was very busy beside the main task which was waiting tables.

We normally never wait so long to get an order or for food. A Taqueria is normally fast. Even for Drinks they didnt ask. They were two girls serving. They werent motivated to ask. After a good time a nice guy came to take the order but after it the Main course took very long. Bit Dissapointing. We went from the restaurant and nobody ever said goodbye. Remember Customer is important to keep going on even after fame.

Todo es perfecto, la comida está muy buena y el lugar es encantador. Lo único que no nos gustó las dos veces que fuimos es el servicio, tardan mucho en servirte el segundo plato y cuando vas a preguntar por esto, se molestan porque preguntas

Service hatte sehr viel zu tun dass wir lange auf alles warten mussten. Von der Bestellung, bis zum essen. Leider wurden wir zu spät gefragt ob wir noch mal etwas möchten zum trinken. Da wollten wir schon die Rechnung und gehen. Aber die Mitarbeiter sind sehr herzlich und freundlich.

Die Tacos waren super mega fein. Auch die Nachos, Salsa und Guaqamole super fein und frisch. Cool angerichtet: sehr authentisch mexikanisch.

Quesadillas hatten viel zu viel Käse für mich und die Füllung war etwas langweilig.
Sonst war das Essen frisch, gute Portionen und bunt

Wir waren am Samstag Abend in La Taqueria in Altstetten. Der Service war leider nicht sehr gut. Die Bedienung war nicht sehr freundlich. Das Essen war sehr kalt. Wir haben Tacos bestellt. Die Tortillas waren wie Gummi. Die Portionen eher klein. Wir hatten reserviert. In wirklichkeit sieht das Lokal und die Terrasse nicht so schön und gepflegt aus, wie auf der Internetseite.
Wie waren etwas entsäuscht, weil wir letzes Jahr in der Filiale im Kreis 4 waren. Dort war alles (im gegenteil von hier) super, schön und gepflegt. Wir kommen nie wieder zum Altstetten.

The Guacamole replacement is a No-GO for los Tacos de Carnitas and similar.

The new sauce “Guaca-mojo” is too oily and does not add any flavour. Extremely disappointed!

Portions have been cut about 25%, so the tacos and dishes are looking very thin.

Really tasty, fresh and (probably) authentic food. Love the ambience and staff is very friendly. Great selection of different Mexican beers. Spiciness can be selected with different sauces.

By far the best Mexican restaurant in town. The dishes are delicious and authentic. The service is impeccable and the overall ambience is very inviting and leads you to stay longer than you usually do in restaurants. Couldn't recommend it enough.

Mi amiga y yo somos clientes fieles de La taqueria, la verdad en Altstetten el servicio al cliente es pésimo, siempre me llevo malas experiencias allí por eso voy más a Langstrasse. Yo escribí que iba a hacer una reunión de negocios, se nos pasó la hora sin darnos cuenta y la mesera vino muy molesta a pararnos de la mesa, horrible.
Nosotras si consumimos y pedimos para llevar, si no quieren que alguien haga una reunión de negocios que normalmente se extiende, pueden escribirlo en las reservas, pero está escrito business meeting, estuvimos de 3 a 7, sin darnos cuenta no fue a propósito. Gracias

Our favorite restaurant and one of the very few sources of AUTHENTIC Mexican food in Zurich, and maybe all of Switzerland. The Alstetten location is by far the best; the other location (Langstrasse?) feels like a Kebab fast food joint even though the food is still great.
