Lots of interesting choice in Karlsruhe, and I can't really explain why I picked a Mexican restaurant in Germany for lunch, but it happened. So, we had typical German service here. They get to you when they get to you, and if you come while they're supposed to have their smoke break, then it will take even longer. Our impression... More

The place itself is nice - comfortable and cozy. The service is OK, very little English. The food is very average, but not even close to Mexican - looks like they have Indian chef in the kitchen...

The service was very good, nice waitress that spoke good english. The food was abundant and a bit expensive I would say but then again this is still Germany. Oily burritos and quesadillas and tasteless sauces manage to get us full bellies but a kebab would have served the same purpose. Bittersweet experience then.

I've been to El Taquito for the second time in a few months and I will definitely go again. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very pleasant and the food is great. I can recommend the tortillas, the fajita, the guacamole sauce and many other dishes. My girlfriend and my family were also very satisfied with the food. Prices are... More

Lots of seating inside and out. Decor is great and very well thought out. Feels like you´ve been transported to mexico. Service was nice, not too overbearing, staff speak good English too. Me & wifey had the number 30 starter (Tortia-something.. with different meats) followed by main number 79 - Spezialitätsplatter (special dish) which said it was for 2 but... More

El Taquito strikes you from the very moment you set foot into the restaurant. Serious effort was made to embellish this place: there's Mexican and Aztec decorations everywhere, pictures, lamps, ornaments... even a small bridge over a pond right at the entrance - you have to cross it to get to the tables! I guess most customers must be genuinely... More

I mean an onion, tomato, cilantro with jalapeño is all you need to make a decent salsa...this place serves stuff from a can or jar...and not even Pace or something decent. Then the burrito came with only ground beef, a side of potatoes with cheese... More

I have been here several times and have enjoyed it each time. The margaritas and monitors are excellent. The menu has a lot of variety. They have many changing specialties and a lunch buffet. They have menus for two people that give you a large sample of many different dishes. in the summer it is nice to sit outside.
