Adding a bit of Latin American spice to Miami's dining scene, Taquerias El Mexicano represents authentic Mexican cuisine. The menu offers a plethora of familiar options like tortillas, fajitas, burritos, quesadillas, nachos and other meat-based dishes that are all available for takeout. Guests who decide to visit the brash yet down-to-earth restaurant are treated to cheerful ambiance - with bright splashes of color in the shape of printed cloths, vibrant wall hangings as well as fruits and flowers.

Taqueria El Mexicano – A co-worker and I had lunch there Friday 03/23/12 and we both ordered the same dish. By 2am I thought I was going to die! I had diarrhea and was vomiting all night. By 9am I had been to the bathroom a total of 9 times.When we saw each other at work we both asked at the same time: Did the food kill you? He too had the same exact symptoms. WARNING!!!! Do not go to this rat trap. It is overpriced and the food sucks. First time there was also my last. I'd rather eat at Taco Bell.

Great no frills Mexican food – Different from taco bell or any other fast food type chain. This is affordable, decent, Mexican food. Just a straight forward, no nonsense restaurant.

the food had no flavor. – I have heard so much about this place... but what a dissapointment, the food had no flavor, not the tacos, tostadas or the meat. I would not go back.

Fresh Approach – A very good option to burgers and fries. The price of the dishes, at lunch time, are simply unbeatable in this town. And the food is freshly made, which makes you wonder about the refried beans: the beans are simply delicious. Now, the menu is quite simple, but every dish is great. For those looking for a tasty lunch which stays within the budget , Taqueria El Mexicano is a sure stop. Warning: if you are looking for romance or a sophisticated experience, this is not the place.

Real Authentic Mexican food. First time I visited and I truly enjoyed it. Real good "queso fundido" with beans or chorizo. yum.... Good prices too! The chicken burrito was great! I plan to return and take some friends along!

Awesome Mexican Food – This place has truly authentic Mexican dishes. I would recommend it to all who love Mexican food. The service can be upgraded a bit but the food is worth it. You can even have the real coke in a bottle loaded with sugar. The coke in the U.S. is loaded with corn syrup which is horrible. Make sure you try the Guacamole. It's the best.

A haven for diners looking for an affordable and tasty Mexican meal. – In Short Located between Little Havana and ritzy Brickell, this humble storefront attracts everyone from families to office workers dining on inexpensive daily specials. The minimalist decor features plastic tablecloths, pinatas and a mural of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Menu items include bistec a la Mexicana--beef chunks simmered with tomatoes, onions and jalapenos. Other standouts are the the house-specialty Tepatitlan burrito and the plato al pastor (seasoned pork served with raw onions, rice and refried beans).

BEST OF THE BEST – Best of the Best is my compliment to this restaurant, for having the most delicious food in town. I lived in Los Angeles for 10 years in Chicago for 12 years and of mexican decent I know when food is authentic. Congratulations Taqueria El Mexicano, which by the way is the full name. I read some reference of this place by Taqueria alone as if this was the name. Is like calling Mamma Mia's Restaurant as Restaurant being its name. After that comment I go back to Congratulating Taquerias El Mexicano for bringing my food to Miami. Most importantly the prices, they are very reasonable !!!!
