el faro is a needle in a haystack! More like a diamond!
A friend of mine told me a while back that el faro had the best breakfast tacos ever. I was skeptical, but decided to give it a shot. To make a long story short... I now eat breakfast there every weekend I can. They make every taco individually just the way you like it, and words can not describe how they are able to make something so ordinary so GREAT!
Eventually I graduated up to their lunch/dinner cuisine... and was upset with myself for waiting so long. They have the best carne guisada I have found. It is delicious. The first time I went for a weekday lunch they had a buffet set up. I was immediately skeptical, but me fears were completely unwarranted. The food was PERFECT. I was eating AUTHENTIC mexican food (some I wasn't even sure what it was) that was hot, fresh, and tasted UNBELIEVEABLE. I plan my days so that I can eat at el faro, and once you try it you will too.
Also, a fact that can not be overstated and should not be understated; the atmosphere is great. It is a family run place. Husband, wife, and kids (with some great help) that are always smiling and friendly.
