This place is awesome! 1) its cheap 2) the food is mexican made by mexicans in a mexican enviroment 3) their burritos are the size of my daughters head and if she can eat it so can you and its one of her favorite things 4) the waiters and cooks are friendly and if you go there enough and order the same thing they will joke about it with you like vegi burrito no salsa...Lots of salsa??? 5) eventhough it seems odd many of the guys from los charros are friends with the guys from fiesta del mar they even will suggest you go to fiesta del mar for a margarita 6)their horchata is wonderful and if you order one and you are with someone they might give you one for them on the house because you are supposed to drink it with a friend. Try it, go there, its wonderful, friendly, relaxing, and a good deal for a wonderful plateful of food.

I don't like to give out ""5""s (just as I don't like to give out ""1""s), as i feel that its few and far between that restaurants TRULY deserve these high or low marks.
But in this case, Taqueria Los Charros is fabulous and highly worthly of ""5"". I go every week (if not every other week) and am still amazed at the quality output.
This IS a real tacquera. Accept no others.

Fresh squeezed OJ before your eyes! An on-site owner, dinners and burritos to die for! A great neighborhood places that one can so rarely find. A few sidewalk tables and an authentic interior. If you have a group that wants to enjoy a lively dinner this place works! If you want a quiet meal over a newspaper you can do that too! When street festivals come to Castro Street, this is a peaceful haven for wonderful meals when you get tired of over-priced ""fair fare"" and crowds! The first time I walked in, the owner greeted me like an ""old friend"" and the rest of the small staff is equally friendly! Now, if they'd only get rid of canned sodas in favor of fountain drinks they'd have it all! Go once and you *will* return! Ask anyone in town and they know the place!

This has got to be our favorite place in the whole of Mountain View. We go there at least once a week either for dinner or breakfast. I've also gone during lunch time on occasion. My 2 yr old loves the food here and so do my husband and I. The Mexican fare is delicious and so affordable. The American breakfast is also reasonable, but my favorite is the huevos con chorizo for breakfast, lunch or dinner. My other favorite is the fajita dinner plate. Our meal generally is under $20 for us 2 adults and that includes a soft drink. SO affordable you can go all the time.
