Healthy Mexican Food

Okay, maybe it's not your super authentic taco truck style food, but it seems like a more healthy option. The burrito was decent. Thank goodness for the salsa bar. Fresh is the word here at The Taco Spot. Although the food is a wee bit bland for my taste, it's a nice place for lunch.

One of the few options in Eagle Rock

Denfinitely not anywhere near the best Mexican food. The portions are average or below average. The best par is their salsa bar because there are at least 5 choices, but the salsas are pretty mild. The carne asada burrito is not made of grilled meat, it tastes boiled, so I definitely don't recommend that.

OFF THE HOOK!

This is a great addition to the neighborhood. The prices are super cheap and the taste of the food is above average - definitely restaurant quality. I'm a working mom and I am constantly searching for places that are quick, affordable, healthy and tastes good. The Taco Spot fits the bill. My family of 4 can eat for under $25. Plus the staff is ultra friendly - what more can you ask for?

Fresh!

Mexican food in all shapes and forms is a staple in my diet. Unfortunately, I can't eat from the taco truck everyday because it doesn't agree with my tummy all the time. But now that there's a Taco Spot, I can enjoy the ""true"" Mexican food flavors without having to schedule a nearby toilet around my meal! :) The corn tortillas the enchiladas are wrapped in are popping with flavor, and filled with giant chunks of chicken. The sauces are flavorful without being salty, and the the salsa bar ingredients are fresh and include the pickled carrots, (that are available at most taco trucks). My boyfriend had the tacos and loved them just the same. The guacamole is also very rich in flavor. Great prices & friendly staff. I can't wait to try the rest of the menu!

one of the best burritos anywhere

Attention vegetarians: Get the bean and cheese burrito with black beans. Add rice inside. Then choose a side, maybe spicy fries or the vegetable soup if it's the special of the day. You won't be disappointed.

The menu is great, but I haven't tried that many things yet because the burritos are unavoidably delicious. The interior is austere but very clean, service quick and friendly. Portions are slightly small, but only compared with other places serving mega-sized items. Do you really need a burrito that must be lifted with both hands? I didn't think so.

Save Your Money

What a disappoinment. Being a native of LA, I figured a new taco place in Eagle Rock would, rock. Was I wrong! I got 2 carne asada tacos a la carte that hardly had anything in them. The shells were not fresh and tasted store bought. My boyfriend got the 2 taco plate; 1 beef and 1 chicken. He said he couldn't tell the difference between the two. He got maybe 2 tablespoons of less than average beans and 1 tablespoon of rice. For what you get on your plate you should look somewhere else. The only reason the Taco Spot got a 1 is because of the salsa bar. Save your money and buy Ortega products at your local grocery store.

TACO SPOT rocks!

I'm new to the area and I discovered TACO SPOT on my weekly drive to work... I have to say they totally rock! Great food, I think the Carne Asada Fries and the Carnitas Tacos are my faves... Definitely one to check out on Colorado Blvd... Clean restaurant and friendly staff too... =D

Some menu items ok, some should be avoided

The burritos here are decent but very basic and nothing special, and a little on the small side (though to be honest, most burritos are probably too big).

I had the tostado once, and it was awful -- a handful of wilted shredded lettuce, very wet beans, and some salsa thrown on in. Not recommended.

The salsa bar is the best thing here, always featuring avocado salsa.
